Strictly Country Comes To A Close...

After three decades in the music industry as Country Music’s most diverse magazine, Strictly Country announced today (January 19, 2024) it will close its doors permanently.  This follows a year long celebration of 30 years in the country music industry.

 

 “All good things must come to an end and it is time for the book that is called Strictly Country to come to a close.” stated Strictly Country’s owner, founder and editor, Gina Kay Singerhouse. 

 

For over thirty years, Strictly Country Magazine has reported a 360 degree view of Country Music while coining the phrase “Country Music Umbrella.” Country music has grown to include a wide variety of styles.  These styles include traditional country, Western, Texan, Country Rock, Country-rap, modern, alternative, Bluegrass, Hillbilly, Rock-a-billy, Americana, Southern Rock, Christmas and Folk.  We call this the country music umbrella.

 

As part of its 30 year run, Strictly Country played host to one of the only fan voted Country Music awards with the Annual Spirit Awards.  The Spirit Awards ran for 25 years from 1995 through to 2019. These awards were designed to give entertainers, under the country music umbrella, a fair opportunity to win an award(s) voted by their fans, music industry personnel and peers. The awards were also designed to give the fans of the country music umbrella an event to voice their opinion with the opportunity to vote for their favorite entertainers.

 

Strictly Country has strived to present the awards to their rightful owners. However, there are a few entertainers who have yet to claim their fan voted awards.  You can see a list of these entertainers to the right.

“I have worked with some of the most talented singers, songwriters and musicians in my thirty-plus year career.” shares Singerhouse.  “I also worked with some amazing people in the music industry as well as met some of the most supportive fans. I could tell you stories that would make you laugh and some that will shed a tear.  These stories, I shall take with me on my next adventure.  I am honored and grateful for all who supported this adventure and those who gave me the chance to prove myself.  Thank you.”

 

All merchandise in Strictly Country's online catalog is marked down for easy sale.

Strictly Country will officially close on March 1, 2024, what would be the beginning of its 31st year in the Country Music industry.
