DIERKS BENTLEY ON THE COVER OF OUR FIRST ISSUE

It was more than a decade now and I almost cannot believe this magazine is still alive and well.

Some said it will not work. Not enough Country Music fans to read a paper magazine

A paper magazine with the power of Internet and social media growing up was crazy

63 issues later, hundred of Countryt Music album reviewed, interviews, biographies, thousant of photographs taken live on stage and so many great souveniurs later I do not regret a single time.

Could I believe I will shake Trace Adkins's hand in Gstaad festival, Switzerland and expressed him all the admiration I had for his career (he kept my hand in his hand all the time I spoke). Saw Toby Keith live on stage at Amsterdam Paradiso, The Netherlands ; Interviewed The Band Perry at Le Divan du Monde, Paris, France ; saw Sugarland live in a small Paris, France Club and Talk with Kristian Bush a few years later at Disneyland Paris, France ? Went to Nashville, Tennesse twice, been invited at The Bluebird Cafe ; visit for free The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the year of his 50th birthday ; Saw Martina McBride live on stage at the Grand Ole Opry...

And, most of all, I feel it : it is only the begining of this fantastic adventure!
