The vinyl subscription service, Vinyl Me, Please, are set to launch a new Country subscription, VMP Country.
The monthly subscription will feature some of the biggest names within the genre, alongside re-releases of iconic albums from some of its finest songwriters. VMP Country will launch in March, releasing its inaugural album ‘At Folsom Prison’ by Johnny Cash in a limited edition press. Vinyl record sales reached their highest levels in recent history in 2020, with a 56% year-over-year boost.
Andrew Winistorfer, the Director of VMP Classics and VMP Country, said “With the exception of a few marquee artists, the country genre is extremely underrepresented in the vinyl world, with new country albums rarely getting vinyl pressings, and older albums rarely getting the reissues they deserve. VMP Country will give anyone on the spectrum of country fandom - from die hard to reluctant skeptics - a Record of the Month that will expand their listening palette, and give their record collection some much-needed twang”. VMP Country joins VMP’s other three Track offerings: Essentials (for the must-have record across genres), Classics (for the best Soul, Blues, & Jazz), and Hip-Hop (from old school to SoundCloud).
VMP members will have the option to subscribe to just VMP Country and/or to subscribe to multiple selections. You can sign-up to the service here.
