Absolute Radio Country team members win CMA Awards

Absolute Radio Country has won two CMA Awards at the opening of the C2C festival in London.

Baylen Leonard, who presents on the station every weekday between 10am – 1pm, was crowned the CMA’s International Broadcaster of the Year while Programme Manager Ricky Marshall was given the Wesley Rose International Achievement Award.

He said: “To win an award for doing something I love is such a joy and to do it as part of the Absolute Radio Country family makes it even sweeter.

“To be part of a team that lets me be myself and play country music is a real privilege.

“It is really down to my colleagues who help me raise my game every single day.”

Baylen was presented with his award at the start of the C2C Country to Country Festival last weekend by Mickey Guyton, who recently sang the American National Anthem at the Superbowl.

Ricky’s CMA award was also presented at the festival by Thomas Rhett.

“It is such a huge honour to receive this award from the CMA. They are a phenomenal organisation who continue to support country music here in the UK and around the world, and at Absolute Radio Country we are so grateful for their support and recognition.” commented Ricky.
