Country Music People celebrate!

The independent magazine Country Music People is celebrating its 500th issue! Back in 1970 it launched issue No 1...with Johnny Cash featured on the cover.

The former editor of the magazine, Bob Powell, admits that the early days were a struggle; "At one point in the 70s I had to write all the articles myself because we couldn't afford writers."

The current editor of the magazine, Duncan Warwick, attributes the longevity of the magazine to the fact that the people involved have always been big country fans.
