On the heels of the CMA's last night (How wonderful was the tribute to Glen Campbell? How great are those Jimmy Webb songs?), this week's Nielsen report states that New York City is the biggest market for country music sales. They attribute that more to the larger population of NY than say a city like Nashville. Country is the new rock so it's no surprise that New Yorkers buy country music. The surprise is that radio still ignores this market and has yet to bring back a country station. Maybe there are a lot of Sirius XM subscribers in Gotham City.
