Gospel Music Coalition
That didn’t take long. A website devoted solely to
pushing back against whining about the Singing News’s recent changes to the charting system. Gospel Music Coalition aims to “ensure every artist and songwriter gets an equal opportunity in airplay and charting privileges.” There are a lot of assumptions embedded in there that strike me as dubious (for instance, don’t they really mean that they want to ensure every artist and songwriter gets an equal opportunity to buy airplay and charting access from as many pliable radio stations as possible and not just those that the SN designates as chart worthy?). But nevermind. I don’t gather the GMC is exactly creating a groundswell of reaction (yet?). Which is to say if you act quickly, you might be one of the first 200 visitors to the site.
