Kyle “The Triggerman” Coroneos, aka “Trigger,” is an advocate for bringing back higher quality country music through preservation of its roots. Coroneos established an online movement called “Saving Country Music.” (Originally called “Free Hank III).

Description of Saving Country Music (excerpt from the official website):

“Saving Country Music’s purpose is spelled out in its name. It offers news, opinion, reviews, artist profiles, music history, and the always-popular off-color pop country bashing. Saving Country Music primarily focuses on country, but also covers roots, rockabilly, bluegrass, blues, and folk music. First and foremost, Saving Country Music is a consumer advocate and an industry watchdog. Saving Country Music consistently receives on average of over 330,000 unique visitors a month.

Even though Saving Country Music is a music-based website, it works from the core principles that the focus should be people first, then music, and that music is just the excuse to explore deeper issues throughout culture.”
