2016: New Year... New web site (under construction) 100% american/english language this time!

Take a look at our 49 cover's published issues since 2008

Miranda Lambert open her wings deep for the first time and probably more than ever and gift us a real wonder!!!

Miranda Lambert - The Weight Of These Wings

MIRANDA LAMBERT

The Weight Of These Wings ***** (5 stars)

Sony Music Nashville

I have never been a big fan of Miranda Lambert so the surprise was total! She never mooved me so. At least, his separation with Blake Shelton let us discover a NEW MIRANDA, more than ever full of soul and artistic freedom.

My deepest congratulations for these unbelievable songs full of spirit... And for this broken voice, so full of humanity.

One of my very rare 5 stars 2016's review

With Brett Eldredge, sure that Frank ''The Voice'' Sinatra is still alive!

Brett Eldredge - Glow

BRETT ELDREGDE

Glow ***** (5 stars)

Atlantic Nashville

It is a long time tradition in the USA to propose us Xmas CDs. This ending year not less than 7 Country Music Christmas Disc are available and the pinacle (even if we appreciate too Chris Young and Jennifer Nettles ones) is no doubt this one!

Brett Eldredge knows what ""glow'' means and he proove us with his great and so inspired voice what shining is.

Sure, Franck Sinitra in his crooner paradise, shoock his head with a approoval smile on his lips.

C2C Country Stars Line-up

- sometime! - I wish I was born in England. Each year, I cannot believe the incredible line-up they put together...

Jacque Mouchet, manager of MADE IN USA MAGAZINE contact@madeinusamagazine.fr

Bob Harris, The legendary BBC Radio 2 broadcaster says, “It’s amazing to think that C2C is five years old already and also how quickly it has grown. I am personally thrilled to be at the centre of it all and can’t wait for next March to welcome back old friends from Nashville and to introduce some new ones.”

Milly Olykan C2C Festival Director for The O2 said: We are thrilled to be going into our fifth year of Country to Country – it’s been incredible to have established an event that is so hugely anticipated by country fans and artists alike. For us to be presenting many new artists for their first time in the UK and Ireland as well as welcoming some back to C2C is fantastic. The growth of C2C owes so much to BBC Radio 2 and the Country Music Association of America – who are great partners on this festival with us.»

“CMA values C2C as an important vehicle for reaching and developing Country Music fans in the U.K. – especially as we enter the fifth year of our partnership,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “We have seen significant growth in the U.K. market and have capitalized on the success of C2C to develop business relationships that have benefited the music industry, which is an important part of our mission. CMA is looking forward to bringing the CMA Songwriters Series back to C2C and sharing the artistry of the songwriters with their fans in London.”

Dot Records Nashville

This guy sure will make spark(sss)!

A first and impressive CD from Drake White a great new artist from Alabama. This guy with his bass Gospel voice got the same talent level of all these last years new comers that began to redefine what Country Music is or could be again as Jamey Johnson, Chris Stapleton and Cody Jinks (no big beard this time at last ;-)

Big Machine Radio

As we say in France : ''we are better served by ourself!"

No doubt about that, it is probably what Scott Borchetta, Manager of BMLG when he dediced to launch his own web radio station.

Most of artists promotion in the USA is based on Radio Country Stations. So a good way for him to promote artists of his brands

MADE IN USA MAGAZINE, France decided to support this 24h a day/7 days a week radio with his french web site www.CountryMusicFrance.com but you can also listen to Big Machine Radio, by a clic on his logo

Good idea too to propose on the page ''song of the week'' music and video of 52 artists of his different labels.

 

 

 

Trent Willmon, for the pleasure of all his french fans, was back in France for a third time since 2007.

He gave us a great show with french musicians and can now say he made the 3 most important Country Festival in France !

With Colby Dee -this charming young woman- talent does not wait !

She is the living proof you can be young and already deeply talented.

She surely was one of the highlights of this 21st Festival edition !

THE LAST BANDOLEROS

LIVE ON STAGE FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN FRANCE AT:

EQUIBLUES FESTIVAL

This trio of mad men were one of the biggest highlight of this 21st edition of Equiblues Festival, France !

Strong enough to share 50/50 (with a french band) our 48th issue's cover

FLASHBACK November, 25, 2013 - The Band Perry was for the first time ever Live on stage in Paris, France !...See our exclusive interview

A great show and a great meet but also a bad souvenir about the worst interview I have ever made. I prepared a one hour long interview as informed me their french agent and finaly he will learn me the information, a few minutes before I meet the band, that I will have only 15 minutes to spend with them... Hard to cut so quickly on my series of questions and give a new shape to my poor interview!
