TOO ROCK FOR COUNTRY, TOO COUNTRY FOR ROCK, we hear this all the time… The winds of change are a blowing and there is a new sherrif in town. Shooter Jennings and others are leading the charge for a new radio format called XXX. Named after the old moonshine jar labels, the format is to include artists that simply are too rock for country and too country for rock. This pretty much encompasses everyone here at Sol Records and we are proud to be part of the movement. You can find out more information and sign the petition at www.givememyxxx.com
