Modesto, CA — January 1, 2013 — Hillbilly-Music.com announced today another record setting year for 2012.

We would like to thank the journalists, authors and country music historians who help us when we make inquiries or provide us with information. It is a pleasure to work with such like-minded people who are unselfish in their assistance and sharing of knowledge and insight. In turn, we are happy to help them out when called upon if we can. Some of have been with us from the start when we created this vision for the site and stuck with us as it grew and evolved. Recalling the segment of an old television show, we offer you a heartfelt 'salute!' from the cornfield and thanks!

In many of the early publications, they often let fans choose their favorite artists, pickers, songs, groups each year. In that tradition, the fans 'voted' in a sense by the pages they chose to view on the site. We haven't published this for a while due to our year end work schedule, but have done so this year and summarized the past three years and broke it out in different ways not seen in the past. Who knows what 2013 will bring; the history literally sometimes falls into our email inbox when we least expect it and keeps us motivated to continue our efforts.

We wish to salute those who made the history that we try and document on our web site. Many of the writeups the fans see on the web site are based on interviews and correspondence with the artists themselves. We also thank the families of the artists who graciously provide us with material and information about their relatives as well as notifying us when their famed relative has passed on to Hillbilly Heaven. We like to think of the web site as a friendly general store or your own family kitchen. You just never know who is going to stop by for a spell and tell you their part in the history of what we affectionately and respectfully call, Hillbilly Music.
