Rolling Stone Magazine Going Country

Your favorite rock, pop and political magazine, Rolling Stone, is getting a little more country. That’s right. The popular music mag has announced that they will be launching a $1M Rolling Stone Country website dedicated to, you guessed it, country music.

With a new website, the magazine will plan on opening a new office in Nashville where 10-15 employees will work out of.

This seems to be a step in the only correct direction. With country music appealing to SO many people, it only makes sense; especially from a business standpoint as Rolling Stone believes that the new addition will increase advertising revenues for the company.

“Certain categories of advertisers love country music because it’s a very sponsor-friendly genre,” said Chris McLoughlin, Rolling Stone’s publisher, told AdAge.com. “The performers are all super likable, they tend to be good people who value their fans and treat their fans well.”

The new country music site will be a standalone site away from RollingStone.com and the plan is to have an annual print edition. Expect to see Rolling Stone Country around April or June of 2014.

  1. There you go! Just another bunch of "A" holes jumping on the wagon chasing a dollar! But like the singers they're chasing, IT AIN'T #@&*%#$! COUNTRY YOU DUMB IDIOTS, IT'S NOT EVEN GOOD ROCK -N- ROLL, IT'S JUST MORE GARBAGE COMPUTER GENERATED, NO TALENT NASHVILLE, LA. GARBAGE! Get it right, Don't call it COUNTRY! Just admit your mag has turned to just another RAG! Sorrowfully hanging on the coat tails of the greatest industry ever and folks like you are the reason it's a dying genre! Why radio won't play our songs! You are the problem! I and a few other TRUE COUNTRY ARTIST are sick and tired of you confused, inbred guitar bangers, so called reporters & losers insulting our business! Find your own name but leave COUNTRY out of it!
