Only the Nashville establishment would think Scott is bad for country music. Thank God the old guard is almost dead and gone. Country had to move forward. It needed a new audience. Scott is a visionary.. He seems to be able to see around the corner. Many people have been waiting for this evolution. It takes extremely powerful people to force change in Nashville. It takes a strategy. I watched a good man get his teeth kicked in by the establishment a while back when Brent brought Magnetone to town.. The majors destroyed him. Then I watched Mutt Lang take Shania and put her in the stratosphere. That was not just a shot over the bow but the beginning of the end for the remnants of the Owen Bradley template. Now we have a master piece like Speak Now.. And of all genres, country music’s market share is the only one up..in the black.. Scott saved this music and brought in new fans. It took an independent.
