A quick post highlighting a couple resources you might not be aware of, and soliciting feedback:
- I recently added an Album Release Calendar, which I’ll do my best to keep up-to-date with any country-ish albums on the horizon. We’ve got new stuff from Willie Nelson, Diana Jones, Jason Isbell, Ralph Stanley and Emmylou Harris coming up in the near future, just to name a few.
- For those of you residing in or coming through the Northern California area, I recently added a bunch of dates to the local Concert Calendar. There are about 14 in April alone, including Terri Clark, Chris Young, The Devil Makes Three, Mindy Smith, etc. I’ve got listings all the way through October.
- In an effort to make the site more accessible to first-time readers—I can only imagine it’d be weird to arrive on a site like this if you’d only ever been to CMT or whatnot—I’m trying to put together a Best Of Country California section to showcase some of the most immediately likable stuff we’ve done to date (i.e. stuff that’s actually thought-provoking or funny and doesn’t rely too heavily on inside jokes). If you have suggestions as far as older posts to include, I’d love to hear them.
The album and concert calendars can both be found under the ‘Resources’ tab at the top of every page. The Best Of section will be linked from the homepage once I put it together.
