Hi Room 217! I love country music. And I love your new Country music CD! It is befutiaul.Two stories about country music: A few young friends in their late teens and early twenties, put together a cd with a comilataion of country songs after their mom died. They titled it the Cry CD . When their dad died a few years later the made another cd titled Cry CD #2 . They wrote on the case, Use with caution . When I listened to it, I was surprised to hear just how many songs there were about loss and grief! When they wanted to have a good cry, they would go for a drive and listen to the Cry Cd!My country music story . Years ago we were driving our ancient VW van through the mountains of central Mexico. My hubby was driving, the five kids were in some form of wake or sleep in the back of the van. I begged my dear hubby to sing to me, “Please Ted, PLEASE, sing me just one song.” He turns to me, smiles and sings, “Old Faithful, we’ve roamed the range together, when the round up days are over, there’ll be pastures full of clover, for you, my faithful friend of mine!” My first, last and only love song!Thanks again for your new selecton of country cds. It is great.Kath

Of course you idiot. This featute is new to iOS 5, why would it be available in 4.3.2. Dumb...
Jeremy - June 6, 2011 at 10:47pm
Read before you post and watch your tounge. It is and does work already on 4.3.3. Educate yourself. Apple already stated this on there own website!!!

What country are you in ? My Music didn\'t show up either in a iPhone 4 iOS v 4.3.3

Nova Scotia - Canada wonder if it is a country thing maybe the Music is only working in the US so far?
Andrew - June 7, 2011 at 11:25am
I dont think it\'s a country restriction. I was on iOS4.3.3 (iphone4.3.3) and it was working just fine until i upgraded to iOS5 this morning. I think it must be a setting or something. I\'ll do a clean install now and how that goes
Andrew - June 7, 2011 at 11:46am
Ok i figured it out. I have 2 accounts. One for the US itunes store and one for the UK. If i\'m signed in the US store i can see the switch. If i signed in my UK account then the switch is gone :D

I figured it was something to do with the country because of all the licensing rules around music in different countries :( I just hope Canada fixes this at some point. Stop making it hard for us to buy and pay for music or we will just keep going to torrents.

Music is only available in US store
