the 13th Annual Inspirational Country Music Awards.
Joe's "I'll Wait For You" is
nominated for Song of the Year and Video of The Year. He's also up for Mainstream Country
Artist of the Year, along with fellow multiple nominees Alan Jackson, Josh Turner, Blue

JOE NICHOLS CELEBRATES REAL
THINGS IN NEW ALBUM
Joe Nichols began recording his current album, Real
Things, at just about the same time a new regime took over at his label, Universal South
Records. Former Sony Records executive Mark Wright replaced Universal South's founders and
senior partners, Tony Brown and Tim DuBois, who had originally signed Nichols.
Note from Marli: I bought Joe's "Little
Things" for my Ma for her birthday and as with all of his CDs, she just loves it.. as
do I. I highly recommend this CD for your collection! It's one of those "must

MUSIC IN THE DIGITAL AGE.
People dont talk face-to-face so much anymore. They send simplistic text messages.
They exchange emails, a medium so cold that it needs little cartoon faces to express
We stare into various electronic screens
television, computer, cell phone, I-Pod,
and whatever else is new. We sit nearly motionless and watch the motions on the
actors, athletes, game show contestants, reality show competitors, and
computer animated figures that battle intergalactic foes, steal cars, kill cops, and
generally duke it out.
When our guys win a TV sports event, we take it as our personal victory, as if we did
something special, when all we did was watch. They live. We watch.
More than 40 minutes of every television hour are commercial, injecting fake needs,
desires, and disease symptoms directly into our brains. Ask your doctor. The TVs
even talk to us in stores and malls. You cant turn them off or tune them out. Big
Traveling between our home screens and the store screens, we stick digital things into our
ears to talk to people without actually having to be with them personally, or we carry
around 5,000 of our favorite songs to ward off real life. Who has 5,000 favorite songs? Or
Do these new music lovers know that an mp3 made at the standard bitrate of 128 is much
lower in sound quality than a CD, lower in quality than a good vinyl LP on a high-end
sound system, and way lower than analog studio wide tape?
Digital music is all numbers. Think of the numbers as a flight of stairs, with a ball of
music bouncing down in small hops.
Analog music is more like a ramp, with the music ball rolling smoothly down. Listening to
a piece on digital and then on analog, is like looking out a window, and then taking the
Major labels dont mail as much hard product to radio stations as they used to.
Its cheaper and faster to put MP3s up on the internet, and have the radio
people download them.
With the public being hooked on plugging stuff into their heads, youd think that
music sales would skyrocket, but just the opposite is happening. CD sales are way down,
and nobodys making much on digital downloads, except the makers of I-Pods. Once a
fan downloads a song he can share it around the world for free.
Still the record companies keep selling $.99 digital single downloads, killing their own
CD album sales. Theyre afraid to be left behind, in case it ever starts to pay off.
Today it seems to be about keeping up with the trends. To some of us it will always be
about the music.
