Interesting.. I noticed there's no one in any Northeastern states except 1 person in Sarasota, NY. Seems like a big region of the US to leave out.

I also recognize some names and it appears that some names I was hoping to see aren't there (and a few more never actually tried out ack...).

I would hope that these are the "56" best they could come up with, regardless of where they are from. .. doesn't that make more sense?

Sheila,

I agree they should choose the best absolutely. My point was it seemed very tilted towards markets where they do well in TV ratings versus the Northeast where Country music isn't as popular. So yes, if they chose the best, that's great. I know one outstanding artist at least they passed over and I know some names on the list that don't hold a candle to this artist.. the artist they passed over was from the NE. That's what made me think it was interesting that an entire (and by far the most populus) region of the US was left out.
