Females In Country Music

You never really think about this, but wait until you see this video. There really aren't that many females that are recognized. Only NINE female artists have held the number one spot since 2004..? Wow...

Watch this video to find out more startling facts about country music and female artists. It definitely gets you thinking.

 
Thank goodness for some great  rising Canadian talent like Jess Moskaluke, Mackenzie Porter, Kira Isabella. At least north of the border looks to be in good shape.

A Little Boys Wish

Our Nashville Insider, Al Wyntor has brought this heart breaking story to our attention:

"Hey Country 100 Listeners,

This morning I read a story on-line about a 5-year old boy who has inoperable brain cancer.  His name is Danny Nickerson.  Actually, he's not 5 yet but his birthday is July 25th and he's looking forward to it.   Since his diagnosis, he's undergone radiation 33 times and now has chemo twice a month.  His life expectancy is 18 months or less.
Danny doesn't want toys for his birthday.  He wants birthday cards.  When the public first learned of his cancer a couple years ago, he got a lot of them and it made him happy.  I wanted my  friends to know about him. His address is:  Danny Nickerson, P.O. Box 212, Foxboro, MA  02035".
