    And thus the popularity of country music is explained.

    Every musician should give away all thier music for free and have a website where people can donate.

    In a perfect world, this would work

    It's as much or more than the price of CDs.

    I've got some 18 track CDs that I have paid 15.99 for back here.

    The number one hit for country stations a couple years ago was called "Jesus, Take The Wheel".

    The lyrics of the song are about how a woman loses control of her car, so she lets go of the steering wheel and prays to Jesus to keep her safe.

    You think I'm joking but I'm not.

    There was a song called "Jesus was a country boy" playing a few years ago.

    All bout how Jesus drove round on John Deer tractors.

    Where I used to work everyone listened to the country song.

    So I heard that song about nine and a quarter billion times.

    More than half.

    It wasn't always so bad. Clint Black, George Straight and their contemporaries were nice, and before them you had the big folk/rock/country crossover types.

    You are quite correct, I forgot myself.

    Mainstream country is, for the most part, utter shit, and cut-and-paste as all fuck, but there is good "underground" stuff.

    Not really. "Country" is a broad spectrum. The drunk Southern redneck stuff is more popular right now, but there's still a lot of other stuff out there. I still prefer the late eighties to the mid nineties to today's, but I wouldn't say you have to go "underground" to find anything decent.

    No, it is.

    It's a pretty obvious one at that. I'm not going to say it's all utter crap, but country isn't exactly known for it's subtlety.

    I think you might be dumber than the average country fan, and they're not a bright group.

    It would be hard as hell to pull off I'm sure, but I heard the idea somewhere for a musical stock system of sorts for digital music and it's stuck with me.

    New music starts at something flat like the now standard 99 cent rate. As popularity increases so does the price within reason. For lesser known bands you would get great deals on songs a lot of the time with this system too. Programs could be configured to watch songs that you want and automatically purchase them once they lower to a certain price.

    I'm sure there would be a shit-ton of flaws with a system like this in execution, but I've always liked it as an idea. Essentially everyone's getting paid still but lesser known artists are now a better value for your money, so there's reason to seek them out as opposed to purposefully searching outside your musical comfort zone.

    Alternatively, bands who do not try to become as popular as possible are now relegated to the bargain-bin and make no money on their music.

    independent, touring in a bus bands I buy

    The idea of popularity is within reason. You wouldn't have to be NSYNC in the late 90's to make money. If you have an average amount of users downloading tracks then it stays around that 99 cent pricepoint.

    The possibility of using Last.FM scrobbling-like software to also determine price points based on how many listeners there are was suggested but not really elaborated on.

    God damn I wish I could find the article I got this from. It explained it more thoroughly than I'm doing.
