Chris Country listeners are set to enjoy a new voice starting in July as iHeartRadio’s Nashville-based multi-media personality Bobby Bones brings his top-rated, weekly Country Top 30 with Bobby Bones program to the station’s schedule.
Every weekend on the Premiere Networks-syndicated program, Bones and his co-hosts Amy Brown and Lunchbox share conversations with Country music’s hottest artists, while playing America’s biggest songs. The show is heard on more than 200 stations across the U.S. and Canada, and is now “crossing the pond,” with Chris Country being the first station outside North America to add the weekly show to its lineup.
Also joining Chris Country is Women of iHeartCountry, an hour-long weekend program hosted by Bones and Brown. Each week on the show, they spotlight music from both established female Country music artists and promising up-and-comers. Also syndicated by Premiere Networks, the program airs on nearly 140 iHeartRadio stations in the U.S., in addition to stations in Canada.
Bones said, “Country music has never been more in demand, and we’re excited to help share the music and stories coming out of Nashville with the UK fans every week.”
Brown said, “I couldn’t be happier that Chris Country will be sharing Women of iHeartCountry with UK listeners – it’s so important that stations support female artists and voices.”
Chris Country’s new weekend schedule begins on Saturday 6th July, and also includes new UK additions, including Scott Phillips, Mikey Faulkner and Liam Scott. Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40 will continue to be broadcast on Saturday mornings, and the station, which launched in 2013, can be heard on DAB+ across much of the UK.
