Give me my XXX. This is absolutely not what you think it is.


There is a movement in music right now and I have been told to submit the album Zombie Nation for consideration to some DJ’s who support this genre. I know many of the artists associated with the genre, either personally or through other people or on internet land, and can honestly say I would be honored to be in their company. XXX is a genre that crosses all sorts of genres like great American music tends to do, exhibited in festivals like the Muddy Roots festival held recently in Nashville. I love the heck out of the fact that this is a grassroots group of folk who are taking their thing to the street. We can never have too much of that in America!
Here are some links for you to check out and make sure to sign the petition on the givememyxxx.com site:

Some others doing things that are totally cool (blogs to come):

Saving Country Music

This from the XXX website:
It is a true shame that there are such rigid GENRE definitions in popular music today! You’ve got POP, ROCK, COUNTRY, R&B, AAA and HIP HOP. This may be fine for most musicians, but there is a very unfair gap in music the way it is. ROCK music is split into two formats MODERN ROCK and ACTIVE ROCK, both of which do not accept SOUTHERN or COUNTRY-LEANING music at all. Then there’s COUNTRY. COUNTRY is a market controlled by NASHVILLE’S inner-workings. Video outlets such as CMT and GAC have created ‘back of the bus’ programming like “Wide Open Country” and “Edge of Country” to relieve the pressure created by the growing movement of outsiders in the field, but it’s not a fair representation of the broad scope of these underdogs. Radio stations have created late-night and weekend specialty programming to play these artists as well, but again, this is just placating these tremendous artists. Our goal is to create XXX festivals, internet, radio and video programming, as well as standing in solidarity with other grassroots efforts such as Muddy Roots, Saving Country Music and it’s affiliates, and others who have fought and stood for exposing this good music!
