Listen, read, study, pray… then vote their hearts.  GOD BLESS AMERICA!"

Don Henley #1 Album Sales
Congrats to Capitol's Don Henley who went to the #1 spot on both the Country album sales and all-genre album sales with his new release "Cass County."  This is Henley's first studio album in 15 years and his first album to be classified Country.  It sold 87,000 is actual album sales according to Nielsen Music.  Coming in a close second is George Strait with his "Cold Beer Conversation."  This extends his record of being the Country artist with the most top 10 albums on the charts.  This is his 20th album to go to #1.

Thomas Rhett also made some noise with his second full studio album "Tangled Up" that generated 63,000 in album sales in its first week out.  His #1 single "Crash and Burn" and "Die A Happy Man" helped propel the sales of the album.

According to the New York Times, Ticketmaster will introduce a new system for handling VIP tickets and early allotments.  They will be trying this new system out at a New York City event today (October 5).  

They hope to gather managers of musicians and try to do away with the accepted practice of allowing acts to sell around eight percent of tickets through fan clubs, etc.

“A growing number of managers say Ticketmaster has lately been enforcing archaic rules about what counts as a fan club, making it harder for bands to obtain these tickets and work with third-party companies that specialize in these packages,” says the paper’s Ben Sisario talking to Traci Thomas, manager of Jason Isbell. “Among Ticketmaster’s more irksome requirements, several managers said, were that an artist’s website must have a chat room — which they say is an anachronism in the age of social media.

“For Ticketmaster, which last year sold $23 billion in tickets, these fan club sales represent a negligible amount of income, particularly for midlevel acts like [Isbell]. But they are part of a growing market of ticket services that Ticketmaster and Live Nation have moved into aggressively.”

Since merging with Live Nation in 2010, Ticketmaster has been trying to capture more revenue from the ticketing sphere.

At this point there have been just a few complaints mainly from smaller acts and only a few managers willing to speak publicly.

Following last week's executive changes at Cumulus Media, the rumors started flying about the future of the company.  Some say bankruptcy court might be in the future for the company given that the new CEO Mary G. Berner brings experience of leading companies (Readers Digest) through the Chapter 11 process.

According to Chairman of the Board Jeffrey Marcus, a partner at Crestview Partners, which manages funds that own approximately 27% of Cumulus' outstanding stock.  The New York Post says Marcus, "has been telling industry influences that isn't the case,"  Instead, the report "found private-equity folks who think t here's some value to be extracted despite its $2.4 billion debt load."

The annual Radio Wayne Awards, announced during the industry event in Atlanta of the National Association of Broadcasters and the Radio Advertising Bureau, presented by Radio Ink, honor the best in the radio industry for leadership, dedication, creativity and commitment to quality.

Tom is building a culture where local talent can shine and impact our community in meaningful ways.”

It is the flagship station for the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers and Milwaukee Bucks. In 2014, the station was the large market station of the year for the National Association of Broadcasters Marconi Award.
The historic WKTI call-letters returned to Milwaukee on 94.5 FM and the station underwent a format change earlier this year, switching from adult hits to Country as “KTI Country.” 

“This is such a tremendous honor for our whole team,” said Langmyer. “Scripps is doing terrific things as we continue to grow as a leader in local content and advertiser results. When you work for a company that believes in people - and in doing good in the communities we serve, the road ahead is clear.  I'm very fortunate to have the opportunity to be in a leadership role at Scripps - and to have such a tremendous team to lead in Milwaukee."
The awards are named in honor of "Radio Wayne" Cornils, who set a high example for professionalism in radio. A successful small-market radio broadcaster, Cornils also served as executive vice president of the Radio Advertising Bureau and SVP/Radio at the National Association of Broadcasters.

Quayle is expected to sport Lane Boots at her upcoming photo shoot for her much-anticipated EP.

"I wore Lane Boots at a recent photo shoot for Montana Bride magazine,” said Quayle. “As soon as I saw the turquoise soles, I fell head over heels! I've worn them all across the country at performances and appearances, and even danced in my red Lovesick Studs for more than 4 hours straight at my wedding. This partnership is a natural fit and I am so excited to work closely with the passionate folks of Lane Boots.”

The Montana-born alluring entertainer, who is just as comfortable sporting a six-gun pistol riding atop a mustang as she is walking the red carpet, wore Lane Boots on the day she said: “I do.” The red boots stitched in gold are featured in September 7, 2015 issue of Nash Country Weekly.

“Stephanie’s passion, drive and focus to achieve her goals is inspiring,” said
