It all started sometime in late 1971, early 1972 when Sanne and his wife attended a performance by          American folk / bluegrass artist Bill Clifton. Clifton was looking for someone who wanted to take care of his performances in the Netherlands. Cor & Margaret Sanne took the job and proved to be successful. Clifton in turn tipped other Americans like such legends as Jim & Jesse, Mac Wiseman and the father of USA bluegrass, Bill Monroe & The Bluegrass Boys. In later years many more came to Europe such as The Country Gentlemen and The Bluegrass Cardinals   In 1973 the couple co-founded Country Gazette magazine. It would last until 2008 with several thousands of members. For 35 years it remained a leading journal with worldwide recognition. In 1975 Sanne was in Nashville and saw a performance by Don Williams. A year later, this legend was in Utrecht for TROS Radio. Gerard de Vries identified Sanne's 'discovery' and not much later Williams was a superstar in Europe and USA. CMS began to take many bookings,  in particular for KRO Radio (Lex Tondeur / Jan de Jong) with performances by:  Ray Pillow, Bill Anderson, Jimmy C. Newman, George Hamilton IV, Stella Parton, Ed Bruce. Jeannie C. Riley etc. etc. On the local CMS was already too busy also. The nationwide success of The Tumbleweeds and The Sommerset caused many requests. Colt 45 from Woerden became CMS’s busiest band. After the breakup of this formation the duo Sterling took their place. They were on their way to national recognition, but a tragic car accident caused the end of a dream. At the request of MC Productions of London CMS in late 70's / early 80's focussed on big festivals in Rotterdam. In those years the country was flooded by such superstars as Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Bobby Bare, Don Williams, Tammy Wynette, Roy Orbison, George Jones, Wanda Jackson, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich, Tompall Glaser & The Glaser Brothers etc.  Many are still personal friends.
