“Partnering with Billboard on this special country edition has allowed us to offer a great value proposition to the consumer,” Tony Bruno, ‘stache media’s SVP of Marketing, said. “Because of the brand’s prominence and the credibility of the magazine, we are able to expose the country music scene to an even wider audience.”
“From ‘The 615,’ Billboard.com’s new country music blog, to the Country charts, Billboard has a deep connection with the country music community, and we’re excited to partner with ‘stache media to expand the brand’s coverage of this genre through this new mini-magazine,” Lisa Ryan Howard, Publisher of Billboard, said.
The magazine features more than 48 pages of artist interviews and reviews, a fold out 2012 calendar, and a 20-track bonus CD with music from Zac Brown Band, Jason Aldean, Trace Adkins, Aaron Lewis, Montgomery Gentry, Craig Morgan, Thompson Square, and more. Fans can preview the bonus CD here on Spotify.
