    I didn’t know about Chris Stapleton. An outlaw singer doing an old George Jones/D.A.C. song in a low-key, soulful guitar arrangement is No. 1 on the chart today. Wow. Maybe the pendulum is moving back. I’ll have to pick up his disc.

      It’s a good sign, but its’s mostly due to the publicity he received from the CMAs. Radio is still not on board; the single is not even in the Top 30 on the country airplay chart. 😦

        It does show how important mainstream media coverage is in getting awareness of the good music that is out there to a wider audience, and underlines how very sad the current state of country radio is.
