Country music database a go
Veteran music journalist Tom Roland has launched a country music database, RolandNote.com. The site catalogs more than 36,000 events from country music history with detailed background credits for more than 8,500 hits and significant tracks. RolandNote presents its core database in a chronological format, allowing the user to see careers unfold, track histories of individual songs or ferret out the genre's past in specific locations. On July 9, the site will become a subscription offering for $9.95 per month.
