UK Number 1 (2013-2014)

UK Number 1 (2013-2014) For the last year I have been proud to be the Number 1 Country Music Artist in the UK, aside from a few weeks here & there when other very fine UK based acts took over at the top of these charts. Lately , I am alarmed to see the amount of Nashville based acts listing London as their base, to achieve the top spot in the UK. This to me, is wrong. Nothing wrong with healthy competition on any chart, in fairness , we already have that here in the UK, but that competition should in reality , be based here. I would like to thank all my fans for getting me to the top spot this past year, posting the songs on various social networks etc, but, it leads to a puzzle. Is there really any point in the continued promotion of my humble songs, if reverbnation allow such things to happen?
