Assistance with new version of Mark David Bright (producer) article and adding new sources...[edit]

I am updating a page for Mark David Bright (producer) that has been on Wikipedia since 2012. The advice I received from Wikipedia support was to make a post here, asking for assistance with the new version of the article I am working on (in addition to adding new sources). Please see the new article below:

I did a lot of work on that article in 2017. It is now named Mark Bright (record producer). Eagledj (talk) 03:20, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

Bill Owens (songwriter)[edit]

I recently created an article for Bill Owens (songwriter), the uncle of Dolly Parton. Any help with the article would be appreciated. Thank you! Thriley (talk) 05:25, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

Hi, Thriley welcome to this project page. Glad to help you get started with Bill Owens (songwriter). I added some content and a source. Try using google books and other sources that are on the tag at the top of your article. I'll check your progress from time to time. The information is out there, but the challenge you face is to show that the Owens is notable on his own, not just because of his family connection with Dolly Parton. Good luck, Eagledj (talk) 17:01, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

Country Music 1942-44[edit]

After months of research, I am getting ready to revise the 1943 year in Country music. As some may know, the first Folk-Hillbilly chart was published by Billboard in the Jan 8 1944 issue. But Billboard had been collecting reports nationwide going back to at least 1942, and publishing the information weekly or semi-weekly. I started out trying to repair the beginning of the 1944 chart. which I can easily do now, but I was surprised to find much more information on popular juke box records, with detailed descriptions of their surveys. It is by no means a rock-solid account, but after collecting the results in spreadsheet charts, I have a very useful list, all linked to published references. I have all the pages from "The Billboard" I am basing this on if anybody is interested. If my information is not useful here, I won't mind, I started out doing this for myself, and thought I could improve our pages.

Updated, will start putting ideas and info on talk page. It can be applied to different types of pages. I have immersed myself in the time period 1939-1944, Ernest Tubb, Al Dexter, WWII Hillbilly! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tillywilly17 (talkcontribs) 15:04, 12 July 2021 (UTC)

RfC on the reliability of Business Insider[edit]

Hello! I have started an RfC about the reliability of Business Insider for sourcing in music related articles. This would have some impact (albeit most likely minor) on all music related articles. Feel free to comment at the RfC. --TheSandDoctor Talk 14:27, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

Harold Morrison Page[edit]

I have just submitted a page for consideration for long-time banjo player and steel guitarist Draft:Harold Ralph Morrison, who was known as a comedian and great talent on the banjo. I have never submitted a page for Wikipedia before, so we'll see how many rookie mistakes I make before I can clear the initial hurdle, but any recommendations or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dsfulker (talkcontribs) 19:22, 18 August 2021 (UTC)
