Or here, really for that matter.
I'm not very helpful, am I.
I've seen where Glen Campbell and others have played some huge venues in Ireland so I figured that would be a place where country artists do well.
The Irish traditional type music features the fiddle quite heavily, so maybe. The Irish seem to like to party like its the end of the world and then at the end of the night get a little maudlin and sentimental.
I have my head pretty much in the sand these days.
I suppose it's with concentrating on the type of music our own audiences want at the kinds of gigs we play - I'm kind of blinkered for that.
That and my musical tastes are 70s/80s melodic rock and 40s/50s popular Great American Songbook standards.
