"Up Country is a monthly magazine which brings you a wealth of information about Country Music & Line Dance,
including events, classes and much more...."
While Up Country continues to be very popular among line dance and Country fans, like many publications, not just those covering Country music, we have been priced out by the increase in mailing and production costs so we are combining Up Country with Cross Country magazine.
Any Up Country readers who also subscribe to Cross Country will have their subscription prolonged on a pro rata basis.
Country music is huge in the UK and while we shall continue to cover the US stars we will include more information about the UK scene.
Cross Country currently cost £1.50 but from February the magazine will cost £2 so subscribers to Up Country will have their subscription adjusted so they get an extension to the amount of time they will receive it, bearing in mind there will now be 12 issues rather the present 11.
Any current subscribers will get a reminder when their subscription is due for renewal and will be able to do so at a reduced price to reflect the lower monthly cost.
The Gig Guide in the new magazine will not only give news of who is on where at the Country music clubs but it will also give information about classes and the intention is they will be kept up to date.
The Face The Music section will still be published because it is an essential part of the British Country scene where overseas acts as well as our own tour the UK.
As far as features go, they will continue, as will the cd reviews, albeit they quite often get repeated in both magazines at present.
Our nostalgic look back over the years and Hannah’s look around the world of Country music is also an interesting feature that will be continuing.
Along with this you will be able to read the Country club reports from all over the UK which, if you were to read them, you would see which dances are popular where and which clubs are worth a visit. We shall also give more information about whether a club is dance friendly or has a concert setting so you can choose one for your particular kind of enjoyment at any given time.
Cross Country is full of advertisements for every conceivable event throughout the year so there is no reason not to go out and enjoy your kind of Country music.
Also by combining Up Country and Cross Country magazines we shall get more time to research British acts and be able to pass the information onto you via our pages.
We have thought long and hard about this decision and now, having made up our minds it’s upwards and onwards.
We look forward to your comments and also your continued support during and after the transition.
