Made the Americana Top 40 (WOOOHOOO)

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Joe_Atlanta, May 8, 2004.

  1. My personal standard of success is to play interesting music with good players for an appreciative audience. I currently play with four bands that pretty much do that. However, it is gratifying to get some outside recognition.

    My roots country/rock band, Kate James and Lost Country, broke into the Americana top forty playlist last week. It's a nice little ego thrill to see our name listed with such stars as Sam Bush, Garcia/Grishman and Norah Jones. We'll playing next at Jake's on May 27th, opening for Billy Joe Shaver .

    I think you should tell Billy Joe that since you are in the top 40 and he is not, that he should open for you :D;)

    Congratulations, next stop the Top 10.
  13. Thanks for the congrats, folks. If nothing else, I got a screen shot of the top 40 page for my scrap book. Like I told my wife, this and $1 will get me a cup of coffee. :meh: Anything else that comes from this is really a roll of the dice (although the band is working hard to capitalize: Kate and Bill are touring east coast Americana stations this month). One interesting thing is that we apparently are getting some air play in Europe and there is a possibility of a tour there.
