Here's What Members Of The Worldwide Media (ranging from The Wall Street Journal and Entertainment Weekly, to a host of print and international broadcast outlets, including the BBC) Are Saying About Stacy's Music Row Report: Nashville's Only Independent Source 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

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY:
"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."

-PHIL SWEETLAND, *In Review,* Nashville, Tennessee

EILEEN SISK:
"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

WPSD-TV:
"I checked out your Geocities site and enjoyed it! It is now a bookmark."
-BILL EVANS, News Director, WPSD-TV, Paducah, Kentucky

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 7, 1998

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 29, 1997

JONATHON JACKSON:
"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, Canada

MY KIND OF COUNTRY:

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."
