Modesto, CA — January 4, 2008 — Hillbilly-Music.com announced today another record setting year for 2008.

We would also like to express our appreciation to 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. 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!' and thanks.

In closing, we wish to salute those who made the history that we try and document on the 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.

The People.
The Music.
The History
