My wife gives me a gift card from Circuit City for my birthday. It was what I asked for. I like being able to pick and choose what I want.
So today I go into the new Circuit City store in Southaven to pick up some music. It’s been awhile since I’ve bought a cd, most everything I want I already have.
Good thing. Because most of what I would want, they don’t have.
About a third of the music selection in the Circuit City store in Southaven, Mississippi is rap. Another third is Regional Mexicana and just less than a third is R&B.
They had, I counted, 3 Jimmy Buffet cds, 0 AC/DC cds and only 1 Jackson Browne cd. I could have picked up every country music cd in the store and carried them out myself in one trip. Every Contemporary Christian cd in the store would have fit in one bag.
Rap music takes up 1 1/2 rows of the racks. R&B takes up nearly a full row and Regional Mexicana takes up another full row. Rock music only takes up about a fourth of one row.
Are country music and rock fans just not buying cds anymore? And if they are, where can they find it?
