    I didn’t know about these anniverseries but I’m a dork to remember that I started chatting in the Terri Clark chatroom in the fall of 2008.

    “The Roman Coliseum of country music blogs, The 9513” … I like that phrase. You just might hear me repeating in comments soon. And congratulations from me too – always enjoy your writing, over at The Coliseum and here.

    Thanks to you and the others at The 9513, I’ve heard more good country music than I ever would have by keeping to mainstream radio and the 2 big corporate music sites, not to mention a free prize winning CDs occasionally. I am forever grateful for your efforts and opinions.
