Changing the Perception of Country?


Q: Chris, I just read about your upcoming ezine REFUELED. I’ve been a fan of your style for quite a while. Can you tell me a little more about it? Thanks. Laura O’Brien

A: Simply put, my new online magazine REFUELED; Alt Country Style + Design debuting this Spring is a mix of modern country style with a alternative edge. I defined this style many years ago with my company Urban Prairie. My hope is to change the perception of country - much in the same way that Raygun magazine changed the face of music and design magazines in the 90’s. It’s a tall order, but it’s a area I felt was worth exploring.

Hi...I like the concept of your blog. For me, all the black makes your site difficult to read.

This is one project from you that I am really excited about. There is no magazine out there that covers the world of country decor from a alternative view. Bravo to you.

I'm hoping the magazine will make it onto paper at some point. I know I'd buy it, or a book maybe?...looking forward to it on-line.
