    Prediction: Volume Spike @ 2.9/3.0

    You totally misunderstood what he said

    Monday night Football could have easily picked PINK or another rocker but stayed with Country

    BTW dont forget Keith Urban and Reba who has a new show

    • I get what he said. MNF would have never picked PINK or any other POP musician! Sports like NASCAR and FOOTBALL have fans who are mostly made up of rednecks and/or blue collar slobs! Redneck and bluecollar slobs favor country and/or classic rock, and because MNF caters to MEN, keeping it country with a STAR who looks hot covered in mud or whatever, made sense to keep it country and signed F.Hill. This guy is trying claim the fame of what was a struggling genre....or maybe i am wrong which is why this company has 2.6Bill in Debt? Did they sell the Sun to get country put back on the map? Either way, paying that off will probably never happen. As for Keith Urban, he's washed up in my book, but Amer. Idol i suppose did need a country judge seeing how (the poor) 99%'ers (i.e. Americans) voted on country bumpkins to win Idol a few times. Why not put a struggling country musician in a judges seat. That show needed change, but I don't think it's going to help much the show is on the decline, as I type. As for Reba, she crossed over to T.V. 10+years ago, got cancelled and now back in the limelight (which isn't good and will get cancelled) Don't get me wrong country is back is a major musical genre, and maybe this company had something (not everything) but something to do with it, but he shouldn't be taking all the credit for the comeback. As a radio company this is a very loooong term play. Good luck if you're long, and have fun listening to what the music industry (i.e. Radio) only wants you to hear.
