I am very much looking forward to the New Year! 2017 is going to be a fantastic year for America’s Country! We’re still working our way back to where we were before we were forced to pull the plug almost a year ago. It’s been a slow climb but I’m more than happy to keep pushing and pushing. Due to some major differences in the financial aspects of how we are able to be on the air, we have to be a little more creative. I am proud to say we have some interesting changes coming in 2017.
Internet radio is not “regular” or terrestrial radio. Yes, we can certainly do the same things and play the same songs as regular radio stations do, but why? In choosing music we play on America’s Country, I’ve always retained my love for the great hits of the 90s and early 2000s. We play today’s biggest hits, newcomers, and some tunes you may never hear anywhere else. I also play songs that were hot in the past months or year that radio has stopped playing. Some examples are Burning House by Cam and Better Than You Left Me by Mickey Guyton. I play these tunes because they are just great songs and sound good. I also play a bunch of 90s hits that are just fantastic to hear again and again. Shania Twain, The Tractors, and of course, George Strait and Garth Brooks are always amazing to hear.
What I will be doing over the next weeks and months is gradually shifting our musical focus away from today’s Top 40 hits and more towards this great library of hits from the 90s and early 2000s. America’s Country will still play these Hot Country Hits and continue to break new songs when they sound good and fit in with the sound of America’s Country. I love Country Music and I know you do too.
I am very excited for these changes and will absolutely keep my hand to the pulse to make sure these changes are good changes. The New Year is going to be amazing and I can’t wait!
Friends, I’m excited to start sprinkling in some Christmas Music into the regular playlist over the next month! We’re going to be starting slowly. At first, we’ll be adding in about one song per hour. We will feature some of the biggest classics from Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Brenda Lee as well as your favorite Country performers. Garth, Carrie, Lonestar and Lady A.
Christmas Music is fantastic and I love it deeply. I also know that sometimes, it can get overwhelming. We’ll try to keep it fresh and interesting. We’ll crank up how many songs we play every week or so. Finally, on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, we’ll play 48 hours of commercial-free Christmas Music!
Thank you all for listening to America’s Country and Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Season’s Greetings!
We launched two exciting shows over the past week. One is a returning show and the other is a brand new show for us. We’re proud to bring back The Texas Country Music Countdown. Hear the top 20 songs from the Red Dirt and Texas Country music charts each Saturday at noon Mountain time. Host Kenny Schneebeli presents a fun and fast-paced countdown show. He features hot artists from this unique sub-genre of Country music.
We are excited to now have a new morning show! Each weekday from 6am-10am, we present The John & Heidi Show. Husband and wife team up to bring fun and entertaining information and news. Click on each of the show’s titles to be taken to their websites and find out more about these great shows.
We’re happy to add these cool and upbeat shows to our already amazing selection of Hot Country Hits and great classics from the 90s! Please listen to these shows and give us your feedback. We’ll pass it along to them.
