DAB and online radio station Chris Country is to broadcast an Academy of Country Music awards preview show, hosted by US singer Jennifer Nettles.
The ACM Awards take place on Sunday night in Los Angeles, and Jennifer Nettles will be getting the UK’s country fans in the mood with a two hour preview show this Saturday and Sunday afternoon, from 2-4pm.
Along with music from CMA-nominated artists, there will be interviews with nominees including Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and Little Big Town.
Chris Country Programme Director Chris Stevens told RadioToday: “We’re committed to sourcing the finest country music programming from around the world to share with our UK listeners, and we’re delighted to welcome Jennifer Nettles to the station. Her Sugarland tracks and solo releases are some of our most popular on our playlist.”
Chris Country recently became the first country station to be heard in London for almost 15 years, having recently become available on DAB Digital Radio.
