Decatur CD Speaks Out About Sugarland “Tussle”

From the latest Decatur CD newsletter…

As you may have heard, we caused a bit of a tussle on the internet recently by speaking our mind about independent retail, Wal-Mart, Sugarland, etc. Quite a few media outlets (the AJC, L.A. Times, CMT’s blog, many others) picked up the story and the whole thing got blown a little out of proportion as far as we’re concerned. But hey, that’s the internet, is it not? Just to clear the air, Kristian Bush stopped by the store and he was a stand-up guy all around, talking with Warren for a good long while, chatting up customers, and so on. Unfortunately, due to circumstances outside of our control, we won’t be stocking the current Sugarland release. However, Kristian did propose working with Decatur CD on a little event this fall. It’ll be fun and we’ll keep you posted when we have more details.
