"That is the country singer Maren Morris performing her latest single to Hell and Back off her album Girl from last year. That performance happened earlier this week at the 55th annual American Country Music Awards, where Maren also took home female artist of the year. Somewhere. I shouldn't just take the award home randomly. She did win it. Thie Ves were originally scheduled for April 15th. But once again, the pandemic flung that plan into Ah high speed blender and the awards ended up getting rescheduled and also re imagined. Some of the biggest country stars in the U. S gave their fans a night of live yet socially distanced. Performances and tributes. Keith Urban can now add host of the country Music Awards to his resume, and now that that's all over, how did it go? And how did they speak about the moment that our world is currently in? We wrenched the cue this music panel out of bed early on a Friday to break down the event. A harmony is a freelance music journalist and critic. High harmony. Hey, Tommy and Lisa Christensen is a CBC arts reporter on the line from Vancouver. Bc lisa Are you there? Well, she gave up. You know harmony. Whenever we talk about country music, Lisa takes off. It's what I've always heard. We're trying to get leased on the line here from Vancouver. We're going. We're going toe work on getting her on in just a second, but harmony. Let's start with you. How was the American Country Music Awards? You know, given the circumstances, I think they did a good job. I think in the beginning of this kind of socially distant awards show era, all you could focus on was the sadness, the empty seats and you know the lack of tears in the crowd. But I think now we've kind of fallen into a rhythm and kind of gotten used to the new normal and I'm no longer focused on the sadness of it. I'm looking at how well are these institutions doing with the tools that they have? So I think they did a good job. I like that. They split it up between three looks. Haitians to give the audience some variety. You know, even though the grand Old Opry house where Keith Urban was hosting was empty, I still like what they did with the lighting. They tried to make the seat seem somewhat field in a little bit more lively, So I think they did a good job with what they have. Lisa, What did you think of you there now? I am here now. You're hanging out with Keith. Urban. I think I think that might have helped the show a little bit. He had a friend, you know? It's a hard thing to host a show, especially at such a somber time. It started with a somber know what I think I saw. You know, he tried to do some A little bit of jokes every once in a while, but I thought he was going to pull his Colorado go tough crowd, But there was no crowd, so I think maybe you know, maybe another person there, Tio kind of fell off of would have made A selfie a little less lonely because boy did it feel lonely. Harmony. What did you think about Keith's hosting jobs here? You know, I think again, he did the best he could with what he had. It would have been nice for him to have like the crowd's energy to feed off of, But you know, he rolled with the punches. It's also not easy doing double duty, hosting the show and performing in it several times throughout the night, so kudos to him for switching hats and especially in the strip down presentation where he didn't have that energy to feed off of he did what he could lease a highlight of the country Music awards for you. Well, I have to say I really enjoyed the intro seeing all these country star starting off with some of their greatest hits you forget, like, I don't know. Just when Carrie Underwood just walked out on that gold dress doing before you know it, chief I was like, Okay, We're going to do some country music tonight. So And then I really enjoyed the Miranda Lambert. Just a stripped down beautiful song and O'Neill towns, You know, She got a few minutes and she really knocked it out of the park. So I guess I'm just highlighting all the women there and to Neil towns by the way, Canadian country singer as well. Nice to see her from Grand Prairie. Albert and I see her as part of that. Ah, that night Harmony. What about you? Yes, I agree with Lisa onto Neil towns. I put great energy into her performance if she was put off by the room being empty, she certainly didn't show it. I thought it was cool of Blake, Shelton and Quince. The funny to use a green screen to make it appear as though they were in Nashville. Even though they were in Laya. I loved watching Mickey gotten in her stunning white gown and seeing her pregnancy glow. That performance was really poignant and beautiful. And I was excited to see Taylor Swift return to the stage. Let's take a listen to a little bit of Taylor Swift from that night. Take a listen to this. Eddie.

Especially if you're in a city atlanta nashville. La wherever you are houston like you. There are musicians around and like there. Are things happening like. I know that Charlton and those guys tremors german atlanta like they do those I don't know what they're called but they do. Those drummer nights where they're like cover they'll do like a whole night of jeff picard songs. And they'll have a bunch of drummers and talent comment play through the house band and play these songs smith. Missile bar that's rat. You know like if i were in atlanta like if i were german atlanta i would go to that. You know like you know. Go to those kind of things. I think just being involved in your community even if it's just like showing up and hanging out or whatever you know what i mean like i i might feel like lamborghini buddy to go like it'll be cool and And to i think the are maybe three. I guess it would be like. I think that in this day and age of instagram and Social media and all that like it's so easy to get in touch with people like you know guys like me or or even guys that i look up to like. They're not they're not inaccessible. In fact like the whole reason that they they do so much on. Instagram and stuff is because they wanna be accessible. They want people to see what they're doing. And and also they want to connect with other folks so like those people and myself like. We're all like hit them up. You know hey you know if time. Let's go get a coffee in you. Know what if they do say no to getting coffee like it's not because like they're jerks and they don't wanna hang they might just don't have time but i would say ninety nine percent of the time they'll offer something else you know what i mean. I can't really a coffee but you know we can do this or you know. Maybe we talk here or whatever you know what i mean like. They'll figure it out. Awesome kirschner will. Thanks for joining us. Today what kind of what's next for you. What are you working on. And what are you working on kind of professionally. But just where do you also working on to just get better as drummer. What's what's challenging for you right now. you know. I think a big thing that i'm that i'm trying to do is i still love touring But i would love to get to a point You know whenever the time comes that. I that i'm not wearing anymore. For whatever reason. Now it'd be my choice or not. I mean Let's be honest like as you get older and you know it. Say your say your fifty Like the opportunities for you to tour are just fewer. You know like for you can think of. It's part of the game. It's because you're older and like you don't you don't want to be in a band for twenty year olds don't want to be with you know failings and it goes feelings and like also like you you you know you you Probably have a family or whatever like you need a certain level of income. You can't be gone all the time or whatever your backer. it's you know. Wanna lay down on a fifteen passenger van or whatever like you just. Can't you know. The opportunities are fewer. And so at least they probably will be in my case and so i like do everything i can to try and Prepare myself for that. Meaning like Have other streams of income. So i love mixing. I think a big thing that i'm working on right now is Is mixing a lot and trying to kind of get that business I don't want to say off the ground up. You know get bigger you know. I love doing remote stuff Every time i do to get better at it for sure And so those. Are you know less like player. Type things and more Other stuff but i would say in terms of drums for example maybe something more specific to that like and more specific to Kind of growing the remote session thing is that You know. I'm really always trying to Work on for lack of a better term. Mike my brain and that musical choices that i make and how efficiently i do it because what separates like the top session guy Town from some other guy that plays drums. it's not necessarily their ability or their chops It's it's the decisions they make and how quickly they make them. And so that's a really hard skill to learn but it happens with time and practice and paying attention to other people and so that's that's the thing right now that i'm that i'm i would say i'm working on all lesson. Also man. well that's good stuff we'll awesome. Thanks for being here and can't wait to catch up again.

You know i might go out there and change some drama ads or tweak this or spike that or like talk to the audio guys about this or that or you know what i mean like. There's always something that you can do. That's that would help set up a notch. Yeah absolutely so. I just try to like. I tried my best to be in that being that head space and figure out what i can do to contribute. Man I want to bring up one other kind of point from your audition video. Just one of the things that sticks out about you from the video. And then as i think back kind of just as long as i've known you in senior play like you just all you know we joke about you being on level four you gotta vary level personality. You know and i never seen you down. But i've never seen you super you know up either man you just even you consistent you. Know fun to hang out with but man just confident more than anything and And not in a in a cocky way but just making it comes across in the video man like you said you just kinda stepped up to the plate. Knew what needed to be done and you do it. But we're if you thought back and it doesn't even have to be related to music specifically but where do you. Where do you think you garnered that sense of confidence from. That's a big one. I mean it's also a high praise. Thank you for the compliment. Absolutely gosh. i don't know man. I feel like it's probably just been stuff that i've picked up from even subconsciously from watching other people that i respect you know And also i think just sort of holding things a little bit A little loosely. Meaning you know. Like i don't i don't think i'm gods gift the drumming or or or even verse to like and like sincerely and so you know i the reason i say that it's not like just for the sake of being humble or some kind of false humidity military or whatever. It's it's more like to communicate that i think that as soon as you kind of realize that there's always somebody better than you the it just kind of are able to be competent with whatever you have and you're like well you know what like if i'm here that they must like what i'm doing and so i'm just going to give them. It's going to do my best and like yeah like. That's that's all i can do. So i maybe maybe the the conflict the cool thing is just a result of They're confident thing is just a result of That mindset just going. You know what. I'm just going to do. I'm just going to do my best. And and that's that's all i can do. You know it kind of removes the pressure. Absolutely no absolutely for guys that. Are you know maybe playing in smaller bands or you know. They're playing in their local ban. A lot and not getting getting out around other musicians. Allot in the church world. We we pass back and forth all the time. There's different players every week which helps feel that relationship but yeah but in the you know kinda outside church world. Is there a place that musicians can go and without having to sneak backstage at a mayor and concert or right and just like interface with a network with folks and a approachable way. And just get to see guys that are better than them right and maybe even get a chance to hang out with him. Some absolutely i mean i think for one not the not to you know sort shameless plug the thing. But i think. I think outlets like like this like the tour bus exactly. What putting together. Even though he didn't say that money's oh you know checks in the mail appreciate that. I think i'll it's like this. I know they're not like necessarily face to face thing but like that's a incredible resource later It's it's not. It's not Active anymore but there was a podcast. I think it's still available. There's a podcast called I'd hit that that. I listened to a lot. It started out as drummer podcasts. Here's a bunch of other people. In there i listened to of time. And so like i think..
"maren morris" Discussed on The Tour Bus Podcast
"Twice the money and then also like guaranteed whatever. It was forty or fifty dates. Or whatever like. That's a lot of dough. Until i leave on the table when i trying to live and so i But like i don't know it ended up being like a few shows mayor per month. You know so. That's something and then. I was doing some studio stuff like mixing and then i. I don't even remember what i did to save as you make money but it just sort of happened and it really like. I didn't really feel my income. Go down like it. Just kind of worked itself out. Share mao i. I don't know but and man ag went from like a few things like two or three things to when we started in june that keith irvine tour went through november. I want to say so. It was like sixty shows Yeah so there wasn't a whole lot of downtime. Necessarily yes so. I came out to when you guys came through atlanta that keith urban tour that some that summer my wife and i came and nice saw you guys And man man was just phenomenal. You guys were phenomenal trying to you guys closed with Maybe we did once. I think yes man on that song towards the end of the set man and it was just fell in love with the song over again. It was just houston great. Live yeah song. It is phenomenal. How big it felt you know. Yeah yeah compared to just so. I know that guy We got lucky that toured the guy that was the system tack was mixing for an in house for us and he. His name's pat saco. He's he's amazing he's actually with He's been with chris stapleton for the past couple of years. His house guy but nice Anyway yeah yeah thanks to tell was it was. It was definitely early. I mean the the show and the tour. That's all changed a lot since those days but But yeah what's the what's the biggest change you can think of from early days with erin and what's going on now. I mean where to begin I was like the band leader but you know it was it was so small it was just you know it's it was that really only really only Was on paper. You know what i mean. And what is that for for folks listening that maybe don't understand kind of what a ban leaders role is in and much less A huge touring. Act like merrin. What's a bandleader do. Everybody's everybody's thing roles of little differently In our case We have a. We have a musical director. That is not in the band So he comes in for. Rehearsals helps us put together sets for like a tour. You know what i mean. Amherst things out musically. His name's david cook. He's amazing he does He still. He's still taylor swift some debate. He was in her band for years. And david is the md and he He comes in for rehearsals things like that. And he checks ed. We'll send him if we're working up and up and he's not there we'll send him. You know bore tapes or whatever and he'll just chime in and kinda from afar how Kind of steer the ship musically a little bit And then i'm sort of like the man on the ground so sometimes that's making you know depends on the situation if david's involved with a particular thing or he's not able to be there for that rehearsal i'll kind of i'll lead the rehearsal or or or maybe sort of It's not. I'm not so much telling people what to play Occasionally i think like if there's a little discrepancy i think just the the buck might stop with me. You know what i mean. He's gotta make a call. Yeah somebody's gonna make a call. Then i'm the guy that makes the call and and things like communicating with the band if You know whatever certain things. Hey guys were You know we're we're short on soundcheck today so this is going to happen. This isn't going to happen or we're changing the store if we're doing festival maybe and It's a say we have a you know we. We need to cut cut the sat down to seventy five minutes I'll i'll be the one that goes. I'll talk to mary or text. Her and figure out what song she wants to cut. And how to reorganize the things and that sort of thing So it just kinda depends. I mean in other bands like there is no most other bands out. Say there isn't an outside musical director. There's an outside. Md and so the band leader is the md or harvey on. Put it sure that terms kind of interchangeable times and You know so those in those operations. It's you know it's different. But that's how we will cool. Cool anything from the mayor and morris tours like just something you something. You didn't think went on tour. You were surprised about the bigger. I mean i'll say that the bigger it got. Okay i mean again this is. This is one of the things that i wouldn't say is Necessarily the same across the board. But i think when. I when i the first big tour that man was a part of was keith urban tour on the record tour and I think that one great thing about being in that opening slot rather its first of three or second three or whatever is that you get to see sort of how these other artists that are further down the road than you run their things. Sure and keith is absolutely a really At example i would say to follow and His his camp his his thing runs a pretty tight ship. You know Meaning there's not a lot of shenanigans. It's not like you know it's not like drugs sex and rock and roll right and like you know there's not like all these all these girls backstage and this and that it's like it's all really like you you you know you keep it tight like you're at work you know So like even like it's interesting. I think that. I think this this could be a good piece of advice for anybody going on any size tour. That's i think to be during musician. You have to be really good at self management. And that's everything from time management to you know money to in in the actual tour example that's that's You like being healthy. Your sleep schedule you know. There's like that's like the only job on planet earth that i can think of. Where like you're borderline encouraged to drink. You know so know you go from you. Don't even have to buy the booze right. It's everywhere and so like there's alcohol around all the time you have you have unlimited hours of you know like you play. Let's call it an hour and a half a day. Maybe you sound checking our. She got two and a half hours out of the day that you're actually doing any work and like you know the rest of the time you could sit around and just get loaded if you want to and like. Nobody's going to stop you right Until you do it and interferes with something else or until you do too much or until you're drag or whatever so you gotta be good at like self managing key went. Nobody's going to tell you how to be an adult and you just gotta figure out how to do it yourself and it's really important because i've seen a lot work is will esp- using drinking as an example. They'll drink too much and they'll get they'll get canned from their gigs or or or whatever you know because they couldn't keep it together so right. Yeah i think. That's maybe the big thing that i that i sort of learned. Is that like this thing. It is a job and like the bigger. This artists gets the more. That's on the line and the more people there are. That could replace you like you gotta step it up like you got to be the guy that sorta like I don't wanna say above reproach but you gotta you gotta.

Maren Morris could win 8 at CMA Awards
"The CMA awards will kick off with a medley of country hits over the decades with a who's who of female singers host Carrie Underwood Dolly Parton and Reba McIntire Martina McBride Gretchen Wilson Terri Clark Sara Evans crystal Gayle Jennifer nettles tenure Tucker and the high women Merrin Morris has a shot at eight trophies entertainer of the year contenders are Underwood Keith urban Garth Brooks Eric church and Chris Stapleton Miranda Lambert says she wants under what to win I've never won it but I always look for who should win it based on what they've done that you're for country music I Margie's Arla
Changes in the Music Industry, Will Their Be Another Beetles?
"I've often said there have been about two songs this year that I think have been really screwed by country radio one of them wholly and one of them was body back because they were so popular people wouldn't let them say popular and I thought for Georgia line in San both got screwed in the factory that is country radio and make get rid of it and I thought this song should have been number one for radio five six seven weeks it. Was that big the song yeah. Did you feel the same way I mean as a writer. You hope something like that would happen and you have a lot of hits you feel different about this one. No it felt it felt very impactful tactful and and it's interesting the tricky thing is it just went up really quick because the momentum of them and then how big it was so it it was very impactful but it kind of like came in then went you know what I mean and the two quickly yeah it has it has a life after that like because of the type of song it is and the artists that they are but but yeah I mean I think it should have been four or five weeks at least don't chest killing the the culture of country music and the fact that songs come and go so fast that when we were kids songs in general to these countries format they would last for eight nine weeks and they became anthems and we think think of our life because of these songs remember where we were and now gone no absolutely I mean it seems like the disconnects I mean to be extreme about about a buddy who is my mentor told me back in the day the DJ's would show up at their record collection and that's why you play right and now obviously and you you. You're one of the days who seems to play a lot of what you play. I remember driving probably a year and a half ago and hearing you play mayor and early on and go. Oh my gosh you know like before. It was really catching you. Were like really playing that in. Thank you man you've been such a supporter of artists early on but it's a machine and I understand I understand both sides of it understand how it sort of needs to be in this modern time but it doesn't necessarily allow for the context of a the DJ helping decide those things sometimes and then more importantly truly as the fans fan response and if the fans responding let it go you know I agree so much to me. The weird thing is that a song can be number one and then the next day every song doesn't go from being awesome some sucking in twelve hour. No it just gets dropped off all of the playlist and so it's gone and because of that I think inevitable it just so we're not in ten years going to have and again. We're we're never going to have the same we've ever in the history of the world ten years and never the same totally. It's never the same but I I think these songs that just remind like we had songs like I remember hearing Indian outlaw on the radio. Remember hearing smells like Teen Spirit on the radio. I know I I feel myself and know where they were yeah. I know that's going to happen anymore. It's it's a similar thought. If you WANNA go all the way back to like there'll never be another the beatles impart for many reasons but in part that we live in a different world like part of what made the Beatles the Beatles besides the talent was it was there was a mystery. You know you couldn't in just get on instagram and go look at what Paul was doing this morning. You know I could be I didn't but I could be on your answer again and what was bobby doing today and see that and vice versa and whatever there's no mystery and even though you got united just meeting for the first time some of it feels like we already know each other because of the friendships but also social media in life and the overlap and the Moderna not as it were back then there was just everything was like I heard I think that maybe until when the Beatles landed man it was like literally when they landed people were there in mass freaking out because they didn't know what was going on. They didn't really know what they look like in person they wanted to go see it and feel it. You know so that kind of excitement just you can't recreate it. I think options also create that listen. There were three TV channels totally and you're on one of the three TV channels at worst you know twenty five percent of the audience period where we have five hundred channels now totally I mean we're looking at I just as an example that a TV network candidates. Hey what you do the show I hate you should come to the show doesn't feel right. I didn't want to this particular. TV show and then we're like we don't understand like you do the show and you'll have two hundred and fifty thousand people watching. I was like guys not to be Dick but after three million people that listen to my show live and another three million that listen on podcast digitally everyday totally and and back in the day it was ten times that totally like we're losing our. It's such a world of an interstate in cars driving by like. Do you like the right car. Get a like it while it was there yeah it's interesting. The turnover rate for everything just seems a lot quicker and that's you know. It's not just the business in marketing conversation as you know. It's also a creative commerce. Do you think if killing art do you think it's killing art or is it making it better because I do see arguable sides. I'm asking you do you think I think I'm not trying to cop hop out. I think it's a bit of both like it depends on you know everything evolves right so art has to evolve and has to be able to function in that new society. I mean it's like did the computer computer. Kill Art Music Making I don't know it depends if you're a tape machine purest. I love the sound of a great day machine record but I also love the things that I can do the computer to manipulate something. Do you ever see Jim Morrison. Talk about the computer. Probably Seventy Yeah Ebb obviously before he died. He was doing an interview and he was like you know what the future in a blew me away like you know the future music is I think he's talking about in the seventies and he's by the way for those was listening. Jim Morrison's the doors very famous. I died way early and he was like it's GonNa be. It's computers totally in the seventies he he was saying that he was probably more spot on then he could have ever imagined because as you well know there's a sector of music that is almost specific vic. Everything is the computer you know. It's not like country music. Typically involves lies live instrumentation still and it's becoming more prevalent again in pop but with a lot of dance music it's it's like everything is literally in the computer and to me. That's not a better or worse or it's just a different way of doing it's like do you. Can you still be created within those confines. You know so we would have songs songs predict what these thirteen year olds have. What will they be able to get in the art art world and go you know this really reminds their snapchat story I well? That's the interesting thing about it the that train of thought even though it's logical and get it it goes goes to the thing of where people literally thought we'd be flying in cars right. Now you know when conceptually it's possible we could go by hundred thousand dollar car that flies right but it's not the Co.. It's not commonplace so even though technology's evolving really quickly they're still what people want except as normal formats is moving way less us quickly so songs will exist. I think forever they really will what kind of songs how what length of time as acceptable you know where they where they go shorter. Is it going to be two minutes and they're already going shorter. Are they telling you because again. I'm lucky enough to be in the high level. I see research. What happens is with music is we'll take it and I say we don't pay for it but I get to see the results of we'll take it and have thousands of people listen to the radio songs? They haven't heard you get scores from. 'em Scores too. I mean it's it's sometimes you over. DOUBT IT yourself and I've seen some really great songs not be scored highly in the opposite but it it's data and what we're seeing is that people get bored with anything over about three minutes twenty seconds totally yeah I mean it was pointed out to me that they're speeding things up you know and not only are they showing but they're speeding them up meaning. They'll take a song and I'm telling you doing industry secretive but they'll take it and speed up three percent so the song even moves faster and if you ever hear on the radio like when you play a bag on your computer your but does it seems a little slower. It's because radio plays them a little faster and they want them shorter. Yeah it's interesting man as a writer I mean I I still write stuff that I feel that that hopefully goes without saying that is truly the case but I'm also I have alike business. I have an inclination towards it in there to me. Those aren't necessarily at odds and so I've had this understanding of the reality that in a business sense a song writers were were selling ads on radio station. We are with inside your morning show in the sense of like they want either here you and then hear the ad and come back to here you you are they gonNa hear our song and we're going to keep them on there so they can ultimate here the ad and I'm okay with that. It is what it is. I've chosen to be in the Billboard Business Not Billboard magazine bestselling billboards. I I did not choose to be in the. I'm not trying to paint the Mona Lisa not not degrading our art. I think you can make amazing art in that context but it's just a different thing. It's like like we're not we're not just sitting on our bedrooms writing songs because writing exactly GonNa say and maybe someone who listened to it once were trying to write stuff that means to us it makes us feel stuff but that will reach the masses and so that's the format that we're allowed this to be able to put it on radio to put it on spotify basically either selling ascriptin subscription spotify or are keeping on radio station so they listened to the ad and it's of course needed because you've gotta have the money to do the thing and I'm okay with that. It's just the funny thing when you think about it you now you get angry as a songwriter that right now it's kind of the wild west and you guys are not getting paid what you should be getting with streaming services yeah. It's it's it's very complex situation nation in very frustrating truly and I've been constantly trying to be engaged as much as I can different different ways and I had an interesting conversation with someone the other day who represents a very well known established old school producer in l. a. and they both had invested in spotify and we were talking about some of that stuff and it it was like you know I don't fault spotify specifically like the if I was GonNa Fault anybody more than anything. It's it's truly the legislation that we let the government putting the legislation on us as riders that we have I mean we're literally imagine going. Hey can you come to show in New York and you sign a new contract or whatever it is and they go you want to charge X. amount of dollars but the government says no you can only charge a quarter of that that we're going to regulate that right because we think. Dj's make too much or too monopoly or whatever it is no when you go do a show if you're playing with your band everything you negotiate your rate or whatever that is you know it's like it's it's it's fair market. I can't do that as a writer with two thirds of my income one part of it I can to sink when you get something place film and TV we go we'll negotiate that rate and and they've also through that process realized that half of it should be the records half of it should be for the song right so if someone gives you a ten thousand dollar placement to have your song on some movie or something half of it goes to the record inside half goes to the song but when it comes to mechanical rates when it comes to performance all
Dave Matthews, Anderson Paak and Maren Morris Form Lobby Group
"Horn the music industry changes almost by the minute thanks to the internet and all kinds of streaming services these days it's a lot more complicated to figure out who gets paid for what well listeners are really good at adapting to the latest music platform the laws that govern them aren't quite so fast to catch up now is the music industry superstars including Dave Matthews and Anderson park have formed the music artists coalition it's a new Washington DC outfit that will lobby for musicians rights I spoke with reporters Lucas Shaw who broke the story for Bloomberg and he explained how musicians often have to rely on the federal government unlike a lot of other creative industry you the federal government has a huge role in affecting how artists especially how the song writers get compensated from all sorts of different parties so you either have judges or laws or some other government bodies determining how songwriters get paid by radio station by bars by restaurants by streaming services you know Pandora Spotify apple you name it and even last year Congress passed a new act called modernization act but also affected a lot of the royalty collection all the artists of the relationship between the music industry in Washington is very tight and artists are looking to make sure that into their voices heard whatever new laws and bills are being proposed the music modernization act went through a lot of iterations and was not easy to get passed to recording artist feel that there were things that were either cut out of that act or could have been stronger are they hoping that there might be other kinds of legislation going forward you know when I spoke with earning a daughter who's a manager everybody from Travis Scott to the eagles to Dan company at least involved in in working with all of them he said that he felt the bill was net neutral but it wasn't a bad thing but if if that was the best effort to making your and better for artists it didn't change a whole lot but I do think that this is as much about what's coming next as what has already happened because the fact is is that every year or two it seems that there is some new issue involving artist in Washington and there's certain laws that are currently on the books that they would love to see change if there is any way you know for example from an old telecommunications act that created the idea of safe harbor which is what allows a lot of free music to collaborate on you too that they would love to get rid of and the other complicating factor is they're different licenses that apply based on how a song is used there is the mechanical license which the license to copy and distribute the composition and there's the sound recording which is the performance of that song is that part of the problem to that rights and royalties are pretty complicated once you start taking them apart yeah I sometimes get confused explaining music rights to myself or to editors and I have to say you know you have the recording which is the musical performer you have the publisher which is a song writer and then within both of those you have your point mechanical performers are just so many different right very hard to keep track of very hard to know what is what and the fact is is that most artists don't know these things they're not keeping on they're not keeping tabs and they are relying on intermediaries whether it agent or publisher is certainly able to keep track of it for them but the idea behind you the company or the new lobbying group is we need professionally minded folks who understand the intricacies of the music business and can advocate on artist behalf in BC and make sure that there's no kind of contrast think decide because the fact is is that labels and publishers often have a different golden artist they obviously all want the music to be listened to but if the label can keep a little more the money that the artist is gonna keep they're probably gonna do that we're talking with Lucas shot at Bloomberg about a new lobbying effort by musicians Dave Matthews I suspect is not really hurting when it comes to whatever he's pay how much of what artists like Dave Matthews are doing or for himself and maybe for other lesser known less powerful art as they try to work for all song writers and performers I think a little bit of both so I'm I've been told the Dave Matthews for example is very upset that there's so much bootleg merchandise available on Amazon fans will pay for any new T. shirt or concert DVD or anything like that and if somebody else uploading it to Amazon Dave Matthews at their thing will why should some other person get money that should really go to be enter my bandmate though you've got lots of money part of it is is fighting the good banking but I do think you're right that you know the the names that have signed up for this Dave Matthews Band don Henley man Morris Anderson pock either big stars and when they say they're getting behind an issue that forces other people to pay attention and come to the table and it makes it easier for them to look out for the little guy it also strikes me as a little bit odd that one of the people who is involved in this is Irving aids off and people have been around the music business know that Irving has been Hey he's been a manager he's been a promoter it does feel like he is almost on the other side of this equation where ARE Irving A.'s office priorities aligned with that of some of the artists I mean look Irving has had almost every job in the music business he ran after he ran a record label but I think the through line through his career has for the most part been standing up to the artist in particular in this leader phase of his career he has tried whether self interested or not to get a flight for artists right and art is getting more money in the face of you know large tech companies playing the consolidation of record labels you know earning a thought came of age in the music industry that looked a lot different than it did say a lot more diffuse you had more different labels you had more different salaries now they're just a handful of companies that can control things in tow Irving answered made it is critical or to be saved that giant for some of these artists and one of the overriding complications I assume is the rise of streaming services so let's just say I pay ten Bucks to go into a bar there streaming Spotify there's a song by the eagles is that part of the problem that the green not that kind of calculation in a digital era is incredibly complicated a lot of people feel like the streaming kana me has been built for example is to the detriment of the song writers that's just one of many ways that when you have a new type of economy that it has in the shift from CD's I tune about dreaming there's both opportunity and peril and who collects the
