Seems there will be at least one singer that won’t be jumping the genre fence anytime soon. Ireland on-line reports that Rod Stewart is enraged with music label bosses at J Records for not giving him the green light to record country classics release.
He says: “Everybody there (at J Records) is against that, which makes me want to do it even more. Apparently, the idea didn’t test well, whatever that means.”
I’m amazed that someone with Stewart’s pedigree still has to ask the label bosses permission to record music. Perhaps he should hire Trent Reznor as a music business consultant. Then again, after listening to his take on the pop classics I believe that Stewart’s country music longings are probably are better off being denied.
