Global just launched a country music station from Smooth Radio

Smooth Country has just appeared on the Global Player app, and online via the Smooth Radio website.

The new service plays “the most relaxing country songs” and is part of the “playlists” section in the Global Player. It features the same jingles and voice-overs as the main service.

Global says: “Smooth Country celebrates the very best of relaxing country music, to make you feel as if you’re chilling with the top down of a Chevy on a long drive across the heart of Nashville.

“The digital station will play country artists from past and present, from Dolly Parton to Taylor Swift to Lady Antebellum.”

There are no more details of any schedule or presenters available at this stage (just a webpage), but we have contacted Global for more information and will update this story if we hear back.

Could Myleene Klass be on Smooth Country? Here she is recording an interview with Dolly Parton.

    I think Global should remove Smooth Extra and replace it with Smooth Country, or at least put it on Tunin so you would be able to listen on a smart speaker

    Interesting they regard Lionel Ritchie as country.

      Yes the first song I heard when I turned in was indeed Lionel Richie…crazy…its just a stream of repeated tracks anyway. I’ve already heard the same songs again next day…thankfully many real country stations exist online
