That should keep us busy for a while.  A lot of new music coming out over the next 12 months.  And, that probably isn’t all of it.  But that should give you a very good idea of what to expect.  I’m seeing a lot of names in that list that I am really looking forward to!

I think that’s going to do it for today.  We have a lot of mail to answer, and it’s New Year’s Eve!  I hope all of you have a wonderful new year’s Eve, and a safe one!  We’ll see you back here after the holiday.  Be sure to follow us on Twitter @countryschatter, and check  us out on periscope, too.

Back with more real soon!
