Our first post of bt Music News was a huge success. To Date it has been viewed over 1,500 times. Thanks to everyone you send me ideas and shared our link. I will be working out the design and layout over the next several posts so bare with us but it's great to see people on board with the idea of our own area music news.
I've had several people ask "what kind of news or bands am I going to write about?" bt Media Group has always been a champion for independent artists & venues that support those artists. We like to see regional bands being original so we're going to cover just that. Bands & Venues that are doing there own thing. Not that we don't love and appreciate cover bands... every local honky tonk/ bar needs a band doing songs so people and drink and dance but we are going to focus on the other side.
OUR GOAL: To introduce you to local artists ...sometimes hidden in the far reaches of the hills of Appalachia
That being said below is this weeks news.....
