My Kind of Country

Country music from a fan's point of view since 2008

2012 by the numbers

numbers2012 was a great year for us at My Kind of Country.  Razor, Occasional Hope, and Jonathan shone the spotlight on twelve diverse artists each month including Nancy Griffith, Marty Stuart, Rodney Crowell, Kathy Mattea and Ricky Skaggs. Our resident country music encyclopedia Paul Dennis continued his Country Heritage series and also took you through a fact-filled countdown of his favorite songs from the 1980’s.

In 2012, we published 692 posts, which generated over 230,000 views from some 110,000 visitors. You wrote 1,312 comments this year on our posts.

    I don’t comment as much as I should, but I visit MKOC every day and love what you guys do. Here’s to another great year in 2013!
