Rascall Flatts Winner at a Losing Game

Iam considering updating The Rascall Flatts song's article Winner at a Losing Game Do any of you have any ideas what I should put in?--Larkspurguy (talk) 20:44, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

I would suggest finding verifiable info about the song's content -- maybe something about how it's the first Rascal Flatts song that the group wrote itself; how it was given a 1970s soft rock sound, etc. Just make sure it's verifiable info (see WP:V, WP:RS). And I would suggest typing "-video -lyrics -mp3 -review -compare -karaoke" into your Google search. Ten Pound Hammer and his otters(Broken clamshellsOtter chirps) 20:58, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Doug Supernaw

I have just placed a {{expand}} template on Doug Supernaw. I gave the article a thorough rewrite, adding references and citing some passages that had {{fact}} tags on them. However, I've just barely begun to scratch the surface; there's a metric buttload of information about his (rather thick) criminal file, and I think I may be in over my head here. Please drop me a note if you want to help in the expansion of this article. Ten Pound Hammer and his otters(Broken clamshellsOtter chirps) 20:42, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Gary Stewart

Howdy all,

I just did a major edit to the Gary Stewart (singer) page. Feel free to make it better. I do wonder, does anyone have access to the country Billboard charts and can post there or on his talk page all of Gary's charting singles?

Your help is appreciated. Thanks,

I can fix this. Thanks for the lead on the users with a copy of Whitburn.
Now if someone can make a nice discography/singles page with charts (like this one, Jerry Lee Lewis discography) for Waylon Jennings and I'd be the happiest Wikipedian in the world and would not ask for anything else for a long, long time.

Mac Martin

Could someone take a look at Mac Martin, of the Dixie Travelers. Very low quality probably copypaste article, but probably notable. I declined a speedy, but it cant survive as is & I dont have the knowledge to work on it. DGG (talk) 17:46, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Justin Tubb

The article is a copyvio, because the text was copied 1:1 from All Music Guide, see to Tubb's discussion page. I don't know which template I have to use, maybe another user can do this. The yodeling cowboy (talk) 20:42, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

The Featured Article and Reatured Article Review processes have put out a call for reviewers. Any editor can review an article and contribute to consensus on whether that article is of FA status. This week's Signpost Dispatch, located at

, explains the advantages of being a reviewer and details the aspects of reviewing that are critical to maintaining WP's high standards. Hope to see some new faces at FAC or FAR soon! Karanacs (talk) 14:50, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

New proposal for Discography sections at WikiProject Musicians

Please take a look at this proposal and express your support or objections. Keep in mind we currently have no guidelines for Discography sections whatsoever, so this would at least be a start. Kaldari (talk) 18:15, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

New "List of number-one country hits (United States)" series

I have started a new series of articles called "List of number-one country hits (United States)," which as the article series implies is a week-by-week listing of number one songs from a given year. It is patterned after the series of articles under the umbrella "List of number-one hits (United States)" and based on the Billboard Hot 100 and its predecessor charts (from 1940 onward).

Take a look at the first article I published ("Number-one country hits of 2008 (USA)") or any of the articles seen in the "List of number-one hits (United States)" series, and you'll get an idea about formatting, wiki-markup and so forth.

Good luck and I'll help out whenever I can. [[Briguy52748 (talk) 22:28, 10 June 2008 (UTC)]]

Also in the near future, I will be creating a country version of the List of artists who reached number one on the Hot 100 (United States) article. This will take a lot of work, but I am confident that it can be done. [[Briguy52748 (talk) 14:42, 11 June 2008 (UTC)]]

Country Music Demographics

I'm sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place, but I just don't know where to find the info I've been looking for. I need the demographics for country music fans (specifically age categories, income brackets, overlap with rock fans, and overlap with video game players). It's hard to combat anti-country bias on the Rock Band forums without those numbers in my hands, and it frustrates me that I can't locate them on Wikipedia or through simple search engine usage. I just need to know what country music fans as a group are like these days... I know I've heard that they're younger and richer than country fans a few decades ago, but it's useless to claim a fact I can't verify. My Fate of Country Music poll is going pretty strong over there, but getting my hands on the demographic data is probably going to mark a major turning point in the discussion. Anyway, besides just being something I need, I think a page on country fan demographics (or music fan demographics in general?) would be extremely useful, and if it's already here somewhere, then please point it out to me. Thanks! Kilyle (talk) 11:23, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

User:TenPoundHammer/Country

PLEASE help me in my drive to improve country music articles. I'm begging you. I seem to be the only editor who gives a rip about country music; most of the country articles are crap.
