Country music is my music

May 21, 2006

I’d like to point out an insignificant piece of informtion from this NYT article about the Dixie Chicks:

“The Dixie Chicks’ two previous albums, “Wide Open Spaces” (1998) and “Fly” (1999), had each been certified “diamond” for shipping more than 10 million copies in the United States. Without airplay, “Home” stalled that March at six million.”

The album that stalled sold six million copies? And Kanye West’s opus, his crowning light and acheivement is struggling to sell three million copies? Fuck hip hop, you fools are working in the wrong field. Pick up a banjo, learn a little square dancing. Shit, Nelly must have got the message ahead of the pack. Damn!
