As an avid music fan, I’ve always enjoyed watching shows like American Idol, X Factor, and The Voice. The more I watched these programs, the more I realized how talented country artists are. I was touched by their personal journeys; but it was their talent and music that blew me away. I felt connected and it’s obvious that millions of fans do too. I decided to get involved in the business myself. That’s when I created CountryCommon.
Country music artists deserve an even bigger spotlight than they already have. While social media has helped many artists gain exposure, it’s also made it more difficult for them to stand out in the crowd. We’ve invested in helping artists make their mark on the music industry by opening our own pockets to promote them.
We created CountryCommon to shine the spotlight on artists who have big dreams, huge talent, but don’t yet have a big machine behind them. We are creating a positive, easy going, and uplifting presence on the internet, and inviting rising stars to join us.
There’s something for everyone here, and each story ends with you, the reader in mind. We want to know what you think, what you love, and what you care about. So whether you’re an artist or a fan, welcome. We’re happy you’re here, and we look forward to being a part of your story, too.
