Paisley will be back some day when he's on his way down. Live long enough and they all do. Nobody quits the entertainment business on top

Some people care how much certain acts get. We had 3 local beauties get on the stage and could move up like Paisley did. But, they forget about all the fans who came spent money on food, beer, rooms and gas that went to the local areas. But, I guess people just worry about other people getting money and always thinks the worse about free enterprise. Just get a job and move up in the world and you might think you live in a great area of the USA.

The Jamboree has gone downhill. Outside of Miranda and Dwight, is there a famous, REAL country singer in the lineup?

Overreliance on local unknowns could mean that headliners demand more money, ticket sales are down, the organizers want to make more in profit or they simply can't get big names to sign up.

Ticket sales are probably about $5 million. Top performers get a guarantee or a percentage of the gross, whichever is larger.

Toby Keith can easily command $250,000 for a concert and Miranda is probably at $150,000.

A concert usually gives 10-20% to the performers so Toby and Miranda alone will take 40% of the total artist take (assuming they get a 20/80 split with the venue).

This leaves just $600,000 to fill all of the remaining slots, including two headliners. Not enough to get huge names.

Where is Paisley? Like many artists, he can make more money playing elsewhere.
