Dear Santa… Love, Patti

Dear Santa,

My list is very short this year musically.

You have already thrown me an early gift with that Grammy nomination for Ashley McBryde’s album, “Girl Going Nowhere”, so how about just finishing the job and awarding her the prize?  I mean, just between us, most people are pulling for her anyway.  Oh Hell, Santa, you don’t have to get involved in this one.  She’s got this.  Just throw a little elf dust on her now and then because she deserves it.  She’s a cool chick.

I know it isn’t normally your job to put women in the Top 20 of the Billboard Country Airplay Chart, but honestly Santa, we all know that can’t happen if female country artists aren’t given a shot more often.  How about if you help with that?  Just give these hard working, talented women a chance?  Make the labels LOOK AT THEM AND LISTEN TO THEM.  That’s all they’re asking for.  They want to be seen and heard.  Ask the A&R folks to come out to their shows and see what they have to offer.

That’s it Santa.  I’ll leave you a fancy drink.  Actually, I’ll leave you a whole bottle WITH a mixer.  I hear you like gin.  It’ll be top shelf.  Promise.




Patti McClintic
I'm Patti. Rock music is my first love. Country came later, but once I was in, I was all in. I'm a history geek, so I love learning about classic country and anything attached to it. You might find me strolling the cemeteries of Nashville, having silent conversations with the songwriters and artists that shaped this amazing genre. I'm an amateur genealogist with over 20,000 people on my family tree. I'm a Buffalo, New York girl living in a Nashville, Tennessee world with my husband and my furry kids. My real kid is an adult and lives in New York with her own three daughters. I'm addicted to SongPop and I don't care to enter rehab to fix that. If you ask me about myself, I'll tell you I have an eight-year old mind, a 77-year old soul and a middle-aged body. I'm a mess. :)
