BBC Radio 2 coverage of the recent Country Music festival in Nashville over three nights, each show of one hour duration


Cheers Clive! Interesting to see the beeb giving CM such a lot of coverage (with no Dale Winton in sight either!).

I see that WSM have got some podcasts available of performances from the acoustic stage, including Teea Goens and Mandy Barnett at present. Hope they add some more (including The Roys, where I got the DJ chap to do a name check for Mrs Kev for me ..... except he called me KEN!! :lol: And she didn't even hear it cos the signal cut off for a minute or so! :lol: ).

Did anyone hear the CMA thing last night? Too much talking & not enough music, I thought
Tonights & tommorows show will be more of the concert highlights rather than a docu I believe
I will be out at the Wine Women & Country gig tonight but will catch up on listen Again

CMA highlights but it didn't venture away from the LP Field! All my highlights of the week were elsewhere. And there was still too much talking!
