Blue Highway is celebrating their first Cashbox cover, which graced the September 8, 2008 issue.
Old timers in the music biz remember Cash Box as a prominent industry publication and one-time competitor of Billboard who put out a print edition from 1942 until 1996. They pioneered such now-familiar chart terms as “with a bullet,” and were also credited with originating the concept of publishing separate charts for different genres of popular music.
It has been revived as an online magazine, published digitally since 2006 at cashboxmagazine.com.
So how much juice do you get for being on the cover of a virtual magazine? Well, if it’s noting your latest CD’s position on the top of the relevant chart, we’d say “plenty!”
Here’s how Blue Highway puts it on their web site:
Suitable for framing (at least by our moms): the cover of this week’s Cashbox! “Through the Window of a Train” marks its second month at the #1 spot on the Cashbox Bluegrass Chart.
