Better to be pissed off than pissed on…
I got an email alerting me that Taylor had a new blog post on his MySpace. So, I went over there and found a blank page. Then I traveled over to the boogies and found it.
A Note From Taylor’s Management
Dear Taylor fan:
Thank you so much for all of your support and excitement while we venture with Taylor into the world of country radio with ‘Seven Mile Breakdown.’ Although your enthusiasm is greatly appreciated, we need to politely ask that you try not to call and email radio stations requesting Taylor’s song more than twice per week. Radio does positively respond to audience reaction, but there is a limit and we don’t want to cross it. Again, you are a wonderful group of fans who have Taylor’s best interest at heart, so we appreciate your understanding in keeping the single requests to a minimum. If each of you call your local stations twice per week that will be enough to make a significant impact!
Oh boy…I knew inundating the radio stations was not going to be the way to get Taylor played. Somebody got pissed off and let Taylor’s management know about it.
But now, the blog is gone. Wonder what that means. Did Taylor decide it wasn’t a good idea? Did he lose his balls, as Rosie would put it? Or was this done without Taylor’s knowledge?
Hmm…this might be a bigger conspiracy than the wristband. Or not.
