Little Big Town
I've been vocal here about how much I like iTunes. It lead me to my first Mac, after all. And that's all good - I love my Mac, and I'm very fond of the entire iLife suite. I do have a growing gripe with the iTunes country music selection here in Canada, however. I know that Americans have a much better selection that we do here because somehow or other I once found myself logged in as a Yank. That allowed me to view a cornucopia of songs and videos that I had not seen available before (and which I could not download). Example... Little Big Town has been on the airwaves around here for months and for months I've been waiting to downlowd a copy of their second recording. What's worse is that I check for what's new fairly often and too often there's nothing at all, or something old. I love a lot of the oldies (Mamas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys rocks the house) but not everything that's old is golden. A wider selection is a must going forward. Maybe the recent contract settlement with the some of the record labels will spur things along. If you haven't had the chance to check out Little Big Town yet, you can see them performing on this site at AOL. Check them out! Great harmonies and great songs! If you have time for only one song, make it "Boondocks." As of tonight, the record is visible on iTunes, but it has no content. With any luck that will be fixed very soon.
