Starving Artist Royalties

Randy Travis made the news the other day in the struggle of when an artist makes a deal with a company to make money. There is a push to have radio stations pay royalties to artists they play the music of. How do artists continue to make music in the future after their work has been released?

How far out does our "extended family" go? Does it include aunts and uncles, or do we go so far as to include people we would invite over to Friendsgiving? How big is our "extended family" and what goals has this group set out to achieve? Does it have a higherarchy structure, or is everyone equal in their say?

I have a change of format today, as I've done too much research on AT&T, only to realize it is a massive undertaking of how much history this company has.
