Panini America Finally Gives Country Music a Trading Card Set to Call its Own (Gallery)
The seemingly omnipresent appeal of country music and its biggest stars today is inescapable. It’s on the radio . . . at the grocery store . . . on the newsstand . . . on morning talk shows . . . and late-night talk shows . . . and network television . . . and cable television . . . and all over social media and the web. But in the coming days, country music will enter a bold, new frontier: The trading card shop.
