Modesto, CA - January 4, 2009 - Hillbilly-Music.com is celebrating the achievement of a new milestone in its web site traffic - the attainment of over 7,000,000 web page views. It seems like only a few months ago the site had reached its previous milestone of 5,000,000 page views.

Hillbilly-Music.com attributes this sustained growth to the constant delivery of new content and information about the various artists, groups, programs, disc jockeys and books that keeps the fans coming back time and again.

Fan mail attests to the fact that fans enjoy rekindling their memories of their favorite artists and programs. Time and again we receive comments to the effect that they've spent many an hour clicking around the site and enjoying the musical history.

Further, in an attempt to provide fans with the ability to acquire the music that they've discovered or are wanting to rediscover again, the site became the first official affliate with the legendary Ernest Tubb Record Shop in headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee. This affiliation is similar to the Amazon associates program where through clicks from our site that result in a purchase provide a small commission to help offset our expenses.

We were pleased to include this affiliation as we realize that no one site could carry all of the older, traditional country music that fans read about on this site and hear samples of. The only choice then is to strive to become a hub where fans can discover other sources to find the music.

Hillbilly-Music.com continues to make contacts and provide assistance to various journalists and authors, including reference material, answers to inquiries, enabling contacts, search for information from our exclusive index of publications, song folios, sheet music, newsletters. This search index is used in our research and enables us to readily find information by a simple search and click on page numbers to read the documents. To date, over 4,800 pages have been scanned, saving wear and tear of the older, more fragile publications. To date, over 1,350 publications have been indexed. We continue to index our collection; it is by no means a completed project, but an ongoing effort that pays off in reduced efforts in research and answering inquiries.
