Thanks For Reading The Second Chapter of Country Perspective

As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. While this was not a post I was expecting to make right now, it’s an announcement I must make. Country Perspective is ceasing posting and is shutting down effective immediately. While it is unfortunate that I will not be able to continue the blog, I do so for a great reason. I’m getting a wonderful opportunity in my professional career to advance into a position I’ve been working towards for a while and in order to pursue this opportunity with my full focus and effort I have to cede my blogging duties here.

I’m very happy with how things have went in my second chapter here at Country Perspective, as I finally made the blog I had always envisioned when I first started this blog back in 2014. It’s been great reconnecting with fellow bloggers, readers and the music community through this blog and I thank every single one of you who have supported this blog in some form or fashion over the years. The fantastic people I’ve met and the memories I’ve made I will always appreciate, so again thank you!

And don’t think of this as goodbye, but merely the closing of one chapter to begin a new one. The blog won’t be going anywhere, as you’ll have full access to all of the posts in the archives. I won’t be going anywhere either, as you can follow me on Twitter @CountryPrspctve if you want to reach out and keep in touch. I’ll still be around and active in the music community in various ways. I mean I can’t stay away from music and writing all together, so you’ll be seeing me.

As always, thank you for reading! And I hope you have an awesome day!

    As we’ve discussed before, while I’m bummed for what this means for the outlet, I couldn’t be happier for what it means for you personally. I know you’ll do great with the new promotion. Plus … there’s always time for an eventual third chapter. 😀

    Regardless, I think what I respected most about CP’s second wave was a stronger voice of confidence and individuality – There’s a lot of all-genre writers out there, but virtually none who specialize mostly first in country. And as someone who’s been reading since May 2014, I continued to appreciate CP as a source for new discoveries, great discussions and more. You don’t need me to say the move back was a success and an excellent choice, Josh. Thanks for plenty of excellent posts and writing in general, man.

      Thank you so much for the kind and glowing words. I truly appreciate it. And I definitely feel I was a more confident and distinctive writer on this second chapter, something I’m truly proud of, so I especially appreciate you seeing this too. We’ll definitely stay in touch, man! I gotta keep sharing my music discoveries and having music discussions, blog or not. And to anyone reading this, if you’re not already following The Musical Divide, you need to do so! Zack is a fantastic writer and he has a really awesome piece coming soon that I know many country readers will especially enjoy.

      And yes of course, never say never on a third chapter haha!
