I was looking at this week's Entertainment Weekly, and there's a little article about how for the first time since 9/11, "major recording acts" are releasing new albums. This is the first time 9/11 has fallen on a Tuesday since 2001.
Maybe I'm just dense, but I don't see why this is an issue? Is there no way that you can't observe and remember and yet still buy a CD? Does that in same was take away from the tragedy? I can't even imagine how the two are connected.
All the article says is "Instead of observing the event by abstaining from new offerings" several artists have "claimed it as their own." (I don't like how that's worded) but it's yet to be seen if the public will buy the CDs on that date.
Well, I'll tell you this - I was already planning on getting Kenny Chesney's new CD on the day it's released (didn't know the date) but because of this article, I DEFINITELY will. I can remember 9/11 and then listen to music to uplift me and remind me of life.
Is there something in this that I'm not getting?
