I notice this one showed up in CMP in the September issue getting 4 STARS from Duncan Warwick. Is that how you found it?
With such poor music sales these days not that many show up on either UK or US Country iTunes Top 200 and it requires hardly any sales to achieve that.
I wonder if such albums were not submitted to CMP they would know they even exist.
Do you trawl through CD Baby new releases in the hope of spotting them or follow traditional country releases another way?

It's enough to make The Shires sounded like a traditional country & western outfit. Appalling stuff and really bad POP
