The RIAA has released thier list of the top selling Male Artists of all time.

The list is topped by Garth Brooks who has sold more albums than any other Male Artist in the USA.

The list is also dominated by Country Music Artists.

Country Music dominates music in the USA, the New Zealand media may see it as a small genre, but over there nothing comes close.

We are missing out on a whole form of music, because our media is too stupid to do any research or for some bizarre reason feel embarrassed if they even mention they like country artist.

All I can say is thanks for the Internet, where we don't have to rely on our insular media telling us what is good and what is not.
