Randy Kohrs video – and single

Randy KohrsKeeping up with Randy Kohrs video and single for Who’s Goin’ With Me

His video is still in the running at the CMT Pure Top 20 Countdown, rated #4 this week against some steep mainstream country competition. The rankings are based wholly on online votes, and the balloting ends each week on Wednesday.

If you have a moment and would like to see Randy’ video stay in the pack, you can cast a ballot.

Who’s Goin’ With Me has recently been sent to several hundred country reporting stations as a single, and at least two of them have already put the song in rotation. Both KSON in San Deigo, CA and WGTY in York, PA are playing the song, and Randy hopes that bluegrass fans in those markets will call or email the stations and voice some support for the song.

“To avoid any stereotypes and stigmas, we marketed it as “Progressive Acoustic Country” as so many stations hear the word bluegrass and steer clear. But, we know better…”

    You know, this is a sad statement when you think about it. I was going to do a Bluegrass Christmas show and I wanted to call it “A Bluegrass Christmas in the City” or something similar. I decided it migt be better to not use the word Bluegrass for the same reasons.

    Since Bluegrass seems to encompass almost everything under the sun these days (which I disagree with), I have no idea what people are referring to when they tell me they don’t care for Bluegrass music. Do they mean Bill Monroe material, the spaced out stuff from Tim O’Brien, Chris Thille and Sam Bush? Who knows what it is they don’t like?

    I love Bluegrass music but I think it’s sad that we have to hide behind another label in order to get people to listen to it. I completely understand why it has to be done though.
