Sounds Great!!!

And I guess that if the song was good enough to chart high on Americana and Roots radio, then it was "hooky" enough and "radio-friendly" enough for them... Just sayin'...

WhatUNeed2Hear- From what I was told from a Warner Bros. Record rep, having a strong hook is more of a POP thing.  I actually asked about "hooks" and the genre I'm in, Americana, is more lenient towards this.  I guess it did alright, since I charted on top Roots and Americana charts.  I have no interest in playing the pop field.  I occasionally write with other people in other genres, but pop bores me.  If it were pop, I would definitely agree with your critique.
