Since 2009, Country California has been publishing satirical country music news articles modeled after those in The Onion.

In that time, we’ve broken – er, made up – major stories you won’t find anywhere else.

One popular series of fictionalized stories on the sometimes-criminal, always-drunk escapades of Martina McBride even begat a parody Twitter account with thousands of followers that has been called “hilarious” by plenty of folks, including the real Martina McBride.

We’ve also heard from people like The Tennessean’s Peter Cooper, who wrote that Fake News is

“… something like country music’s version of farcical newspaper The Onion, or like an all-country online cousin to The Daily Show.”

And the late Chris Neal of Country Weekly and M: Music and Musicians, who dubbed Country California

“… insightful and often wickedly funny…”

… on the merits of our earliest material, before we had published even a bit of Fake News!

Now, we’ve compiled a few favorite stories into a spiffy little Fake News e-book. Which we’d like to give to you, for free.

Country California Fake News PrimerReally, zero dollars. Nothing. Nada. Bupkis.
