More squishy math

More squishy math — from Music City: Here’s an article from today’s Tennessean about music sales in 2005. The reader has to go 18 paragraphs into the story to discover that the sales statistics do not include music sold through Wal-Mart. Wouldn’t you think a research methodology that ignores the 800 lb. gorilla marketing channel for Nashville-produced music would not be the appropriate statistic to gauge the performance of Nashville-produced music. Apparently not.

(via: Jeff Cornwall, who thinks the cluelessness (my word, not his — he’s much more polite) being displayed by executives on Music Row, means this is a good time for Nashville entrepreneurs.)
