(Nashville, TN) Jerry Mac is a true friend to pure and traditional country music, and his passion for sing, play, and listen to the music is so important to country music as we once knew. At this time in the history of country music, we have lost a great deal of the traditional side of the music, which always included fiddles and steel guitar, and now it seems as though the new generation is ashamed to use the name traditional country music as their music. Mind you, not all of the artists of today are veer away from that title, when you are turning your dial on the radio, good luck if you find a pure country stations with a DJ who will play the old Ray Price, Skeets McDonald, Kitty Wells, and we all the know the long list of artists we do not hear because of corporate ownership of radio stations who dictate what they now call air personalities of what they are to play. Remember Webb Pierce, Carl Smith, Faron Young, Jean Shepard, Wilma Lee Cooper, etc. Well this is a DJ and for sure he is an air personality, who continues to play their music, and his name is Jerry Mac,
Now that I have put all of these bouquets on Jerry’s shoulder, and they are deserved, let me tell you something you may not know. Those aspiring country music artists who have their own labels (we call them Indie Labels) have the opportunity to have your music reviewed and played on Jerry’s Country Music Planet worldwide-that’s right-worldwide. He is the last of a dying breed of disc-jockeys who will preview a new artist, and if the music and production are done well, he will play the artists music, and he does interviews. I remember those days when you could travel down the road and see one of those tall radio towers, and if they played country music, you could stop by and talk to the DJ, probably get an interview, and get your music played. YOU TRY THAT NOW AND MOST OF THESE NEW STATIONS WILL NOT LET YOU ANY FARTHER THAN THE RECIPTIONIST, OR THEY WILL ASK YOU TO LEAVE. There are still many great DJ’s across the country and in other countries who still believe in giving artist an opportunity to be heard, but you can forget it if you think those so-called reporting stations will give you a chance. The are high-paid robots with ego’s bigger than super stars. But there is a DJ I know who will give you that opportunity, and his name is JERRY MAC. He is a friend of mine, and I commend him and his policy to help all indie artists, new artists on major labels who record real country music, and veterans country artists who still have great music, and those artists who have passed on and left great music to be played. Read the following press release and check out Jerry’s web pages.
Thank you Jerry Mac for sticking by your guns and never turning your back on artists who have given up, artists who have great music, songwriters with great songs, artists who are as good as some of the successful artists of today, and artists who never give up. I personally thank you for all the good you have done for me.

A new downtown museum dedicated to the life and music career of the late “Man in Black” will feature 18,000 square feet of memorabilia, interactive exhibits and a 250-seat auditorium, organizers of the new Johnny Cash Museum announced today in their formal unveiling of its permanent home. The museum, located in a former upholstery store at 119 Third Avenue South, will open sometime this summer, although no exact date has been set, said founder Bill Miller, a lifelong friend of Cash. Miller estimates it will cost him and other unnamed private investors behind the effort an estimated $7 million. Miller, along with three generations of Cash family members that included son, John Carter Cash, brother Tommy and granddaughter, Chelsea, announced the plans at a midday news conference.
The museum’s formal launch Tuesday comes just days before what would have been Johnny Cash’s 80th birthday on Feb. 26. “This is the realization of a long-term dream,” Miller told a gathering of music industry insiders and downtown business officials packed inside the new site for a news conference. Said John Cash: “My father and mother had a way through honesty and truth of spirit. It’s not about the glamour or about making it for Nashville. This is about spreading their spirit.” While plans and projections for the museum are still coming together, Miller expects the museum to draw about 150,000 visitors per year.
It’s located just off Broadway’s main tourist drag on Third Avenue South, between the Karma Lounge and a western wear store called Hats Boots.
The two-story brick building is within a block of the County Music Hall of Fame and Museum and a short walk from Ryman Auditorium. Miller said he estimates the museum, which will be privately run, will charge visitors $13 admission. Its memorabilia will be donated from the collections of the Cash family, Miller’s collection, a former Cash museum in Hendersonville and donors, including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which has offered to lend the effort Cash’s legendary Gibson guitar, Miller said.
