Pro Country is a site that takes pride in shining a light on the traditional side of country music! We have featured both current/former major label artists such as Buddy Jewell, Craig Campbell, David Kersh, Michael Peterson, and more, as well as artists in the beginning stages of their careers, and everywhere in between!
Pro Country is run by me, Justin Loretangeli. The site started as a project during my senior year at Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey. After the semester ended, there were no real plans to continue on with the site.
After a few months passed, I realized that I had two pieces on my computer; “Goodnight Sweetheart, The David Kersh Story,” and “The Story of ‘I Loved Her First,” which were both written as school projects, that I thought gave such great insight into the careers of two great artists. I decided to upload them to the sight, and the rest, as they say, is history.
The stories were seen by thousands of people all over the world, and gave me the drive I needed to give this whole “music journalist” thing a go.
Now, almost 30,000 website views and 100 artist interviews later, Pro Country has become something bigger than I could have ever imagined! It’s been an amazing ride so far, and I’m looking forward to see where it goes next!
Thanks for reading!
