"They won't tell you. I just did."- Walter Mondale
Here's What Members Of The Worldwide
Media (ranging from The
Wall Street Journal and Entertainment
to a host of print and international broadcast outlets, including the BBC) Are Saying
About Stacy's Music Row
of Country Music News and Informed Opinion...
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL:
"STACY'S MUSIC ROW REPORT (is) a chatty, first-person take on what's
news in country music."
-THOMAS E. WEBER, *The Wall Street
Journal,* April 30, 1998
THE WASHINGTON POST:
"I am a reader of your excellent
page, and also a writer who recently did a review of the new book on
the Carter family (for the Washington Post)."

-BRIAN MANSFIELD, freelancer, USA
Today, November 9, 2003
"Stacy, way to go! You have
definitely found your niche!...If country has a watchdog, it's
journalist Stacy Harris, whose country version of *The Drudge Report*
challenges industry brokers 'to uphold standards of accountability,
credibility, integrity, and conscience.' The site eschews gossip for
insider's reports... and informed opinion."
-ALANNA NASH, author, reviewer for
*Entertainment Weekly* and *Stereo Review,* Louisville, Kentucky
JONES RADIO NETWORKS/SEATTLE:
"I found your Web site quite by
accident. I was forwarded a link... This Web site is a great read...
Enjoyed it!... I'll check in often to your site."
-LIA KNIGHT-Host, 'THE LIA SHOW,'
Jones Radio Networks/Seattle
"Stacy . . .Nice chattin' with you
this morning! Thanks again for the honesty and keep up the good work.
Don't let 'em push ya around. Take care..."
-PHIL SWEETLAND, *In Review,*
"Just checked out your report. So
much more news than in others I've seen. You keep kickin' butt with old
Mike, too. I had to let my MCN subscription go ages ago. It is so
riddled with errors it is pitiful. Hard for real journalists to
stomach. All that chocolatey stuff ain't too good for the stomach. Keep
up the good work!"
-EILEEN SISK, Author, "HONKY-TONKS"
(HarperCollinsWest, 1995), Bena, Virginia
"I checked out your Geocities site
and enjoyed it! It is now a bookmark."
-BILL EVANS, News Director, WPSD-TV,
NEW JERSEY NETWORK:
"Hello, Stacy. I was wondering if you
may know where Jimmy Velvet is these days...I played a few shows with
him in the 60s... NJN or the New Jersey Network, or, New Jersey Public
Television is the four-station PBS network that serves New Jersey. We
have a nightly newscast, and I run the department....I played bass with
a band called the Velaires in the 60s. The band went country and became
The Younger Brothers...Thanks for the CMF tip."
-BILL JOBES, New Jersey Network
THE NASHVILLE SCENE:
"Check out country music's version of
The Drudge Report... for similar investigative bombshells..."
-JIM RIDLEY, The Nashville Scene, May
THE NASHVILLE SCENE:
"Assembled by a truly dedicated music
industry [professional, "Stacy's Music Row Report"] offers...an
insider's look at the country music biz. It's nice to see a member of
the community spending so much time and energy providing a service."
-JOEL MOSES, The Nashville Scene, May
"Just found your Music Row Report and
I think it's great! I'm a Canadian journalist who visited Nashville in
October and had my own "wonderful" experience with the powers-that-be.
I had a job interview at *Country Weekly* that was interrupted by an
extremely rude publicist... who launched a profanity-laced tirade at
the editor because the magazine hadn't yet done a feature on her
artist... She took up 45 minutes of my time and the editor let it
happen! I left his office so disillusioned. I know publicists are
supposed to be somewhat pushy but that was ridiculous, and I was
appalled that the editor would have kissed her ass like he did... Keep
up the good work, Stacy!" -JONATHON JACKSON, Owen Sound, Ontario,
MY KIND OF COUNTRY:
"Wanna know who's where, doin' what
and when? This is the place to find out. Stacy's news is loaded with
information covering about anything you can think of... If it's out
there, srite and ask...Stacy can most likely find out."
-MARLENE SLATER, "My Kind Of
Country," Amherst, Ohio

"My name is Don Chance and I'm a new
Roughstock.com reviewer too. I just read your column for the first time
and I'm impressed. Though I've been the Country Music Writer for the
Wichita Falls, TX, TIMES RECORD NEWS for only about 2 years, I quit a
journalism program in college to become a full-time professional
country musician. Twenty years later, I'm back in journalism -
interviewing the stars and reviewing the shows and records and having a
great time. It's good to see other commentators out there who know that
there's more to Country Music than just the current Top-40 charts and
those embarassing beauty-pageant "music" awards shows. I'll be checking
in on your column from time to tiume, so keep up the good work."

your column. You sure know how to get the inside stuff."

"Stacy's Music Row Report [features]
Real music news, from one of the industry's most reliable sources."
"As a music critic based out of the
San Francisco Bay Area, I'm pretty disconnected (by geography) with
what happens on Music Row. Tuning into Stacy's Music Row Report helps
change that. I'd be a fool - or a rookie reporter - not to utilize it."

BBC WORLD SERVICE:
"We are running a story on Black
Country Music and I have been looking at your website with interest!
Very informative!... We can't do this piece without speaking to Frankie
Staton… Do you have any contacts details for her?... I had also thought
about speaking to Charley Pride, but if you know of any other musicians
who would be good talkers and wouldn’t mind coming on the programme
then please let me know. I hope you don’t mind me contacting you- but
you seem to know it all!... Thanks for your time."
