||As a long time american music fan, I only discovered what Country Music was for real since... 2006 !
September 2008, I became fan (and crazy) enough about this music genre to launch the first ever, bimonthly printed in color, french magazine dedicated to Country Music.
December 2016, a decade of music, thousands of shows photos, great meets and talks with country artists and... My 50th issue printed!
No help or partnership from any major labels to promote Country Music in France, a country which is not considered as a market for Country Music industry.
Anyway, I go on to preach the 'good word' to french Country Music fans, enjoy to be invited to most popular french Country Music festivals, and sure one day I will make my way!
Already know that this 2017 version of madeinUSAmagazine.fr web site will be the most professional and the one I will be the most proud of.
And, when I see some of Country Music american web site... No shame to have!
As we say in France: ''I ain't got my tongue in my pocket''. Never had and never will!
I do not make it for the money, I do not make it for fame, I make it for love of this great music, these great bands and this unbelievable american musicians and artists
This coming soon new year will be, as usual, full of great moments, music and thoughts to share with you, dear (american?) visitors.
If you are a country artist, any label (even a major label ;-), any guy or organisation who could help me in anyway to promote Country Music in France, you are welcome! You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
One last word: ''forgive me please, for the mistakes I probably made (and will make) in my texts''
