I guess the other big positive is that they are the only mainstream channel even making an effort to provide for fans of the country sound.
Maybe I'm an old crank but I'd happily ditch the 'reality' format. It's just trying to gild a lily.
I'd give all these performers a full half-hour each, five minutes giving a little background on themselves and their, influences, take on music etc. in their best cúpla focail and then 7 or 8 numbers of their choice live on stage in a single take. A great half-hour show and you wouldn't know what is coming each week. They'd all get a decent TV "shop window" break for their repertoire, and if they have the talent could take it from there. Simple but effective. But as I say, maybe I'm just old school on these matters.
