The Texas Video Showdown is between two sides in the music business – 5 sound alike pop stars that control the music business on one side, and the thousands of other musicians that have been marginalized out of careers on the other.
The five or so sound alike pop stars include: Taylor Swift,, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Adele, Gaga, and 1 Direction.
The Texas Video Showdown, youtube video challenges the entire music industry.
Some say there is plenty of good music out there, you just have to search for it.
But I say why? Why should the music business be controlled by bad music instead of the best music out there, and why is it our job to find the good music on our own? Is the music business built on bad music? If so why do people put up with that. They don’t!
Some say they are content that they have favorites that are not the karaoke pop, and they get all the good music they want. But that attitude is keeping all those musicians from their careers.
Do you know a great musician? Do you have favorites that are not one of the 5?
I can predict that right now he/she/they are out of a career and making close to minimum wage no matter how good they are, or how hard they works. Buying a CD or t-shirt won’t help them. Support them by opening music up again so great talent has a chance. Vote for indie musicians not 5 pop stars in the Texas Video Showdown. Show the industry that enough is enough and too little is not enough!
Want to join other musicians and bring some fun, rebellion, and vitality to the music business, and open it up to more than a few pop stars? Take a stand right here – vote thumbs up on this video. Bring it down to one video and one place to concentrate the start of a change in music. You are for indie musicians or you are for corporate pop stars. You decide. When music has jumped the shark we need a shake up. Texas Video Showdown.
