This Sunday, the Grammys will showcase the biggest recording artists of the past year. You can see who's up for an award, and vote for who you think will win here.
When it comes to the music I buy, I tend to veer a little outside of what the major labels offer. I dig the music we play, but considering I work around it all day, I don't really feel a need to purchase most of it.
For example, back when Lonestar's "Amazed" came out, the station I was working for at the time (not WDEZ) played it every...two...hours. A smart programming move, for sure. The song was red hot and we wanted to make sure that OUR station was the one where people could hear it every time they had a craving.
Honestly though, I have zero need to ever purchase that song for personal use. Zero. I even like the song, but it has been burned into my very soul at this point.
"Tim McGraw's 'Something Like That'? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
My purchases tend to be indie/alt-country/Americana stuff made by artists that may not be pretty enough for CMT. You might dig some of it too:
Have a great weekend!
Your TTPK Hint for last night is: "blah, blah, blah"
