We’re Moving!

We're Moving!

Yep! We’re moving… Kinda. We are moving to a new stream host server. Hopefully, this will not cause any interruptions to our streams. Because this is technology, it may and we appreciate your understanding.

Why? We are moving to a new system that will provide a better overall experience. The servers are in a world-class data center with redundancy and fail-over capabilities so we can keep streaming with very little to no interruptions. This is also under a new non-profit organization. This saves us loads of money as the billing structure is quite different for non-profits versus standard music streaming on the internet.

As silly as it sounds, our commercials should also be better. We still need to pay so there will still be advertising on the station and on our website. Please visit our sponsors and click on the banners to support our operations and keep us on the air.

Our stream launch page will be going away, for now. We’re trying to figure out a way to bring it back and we’ll let you know when that happens. Meanwhile, we’ll update our links as soon as possible and you shouldn’t notice anything. You’ll not have to change your links or favorites. One casualty of this move is we’re losing our station listing on Apple’s iTunes Internet Radio. Apple is slowly discontinuing that service and as part of that process, they are not allowing new listings or changes to existing listings. You can still listen to us through iTunes, by pasting our URL in File > Open Stream.

We will continue to have our station listed in as many listing services as possible. Mainly, TuneIn.com will be available and is the most popular site for streaming radio. We’re also listed at nRadio, Streema.com, and many others. If you know of some more listing sites, please let me know.

This transition should take only a couple of weeks and again, you all shouldn’t notice any of these changes. Please move from iTunes to TuneIn or some other listening page. As we notice things that may disrupt service, we’ll try to keep you informed.

As always, thank you so much for listening and being part of our family!

Love ya!

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays 2017

Merry Christmas!

From our family to yours, we, at America’s Country, wish you all a very merry Christmas. I love this time of year. There are so many opportunities to give and to be generous to our neighbors, family and friends. Here, in Utah, it snowed overnight. This is the first significant snow in the area and it always inspires such wonderful feelings. Add that and our mix of great Country music and classic Christmas tunes and you get an amazing experience.

I have not yet begun to start planning for our 2018. I’ve been very grateful for what we’ve accomplished in 2017. Just recently, we added our new show, Radio Rehab with Dana Williams of Diamond Rio fame. That has been a perfect addition to our existing catalog of entertaining shows including our daily morning show with John & Heidi, and our good buddy Kenny Schneebeli’s Texas Country Music Countdown.

Your response to these shows has been great! I hope you’ll keep listening to these outstanding productions. I am always looking for new shows to bring you but we want to be sure they are of the highest quality and provide great entertainment and expose you to new and fun music and personalities.

For the remainder of 2017, we are planning to continue adding more Christmas songs to the mix and finally, 48 hours of commercial-free Christmas music on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We will then return to our normal programming on the 26th. Again, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Security Updates

Internet Security

Friends,
As always, I try to keep up on the internet’s latest technology and methods. I also want to keep your safety and security at the top of my list. Over the last several days, I’ve updated our website and web servers to secure data exchange between our servers and your browsers. This is important to ensure that any nefarious people or bots cannot alter any of the text, images or links that may be offensive or harmful.

This will also keep our website up near the top of your favorite internet search results. If you ever need to find us, we’ll be there!

America’s Country will continue to give you the best in technology and, of course, the best in entertainment!

Thank you all for listening!

2017 is looking like a great year!

2017
Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

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.

The Plan

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!

Happy New Year!

Christmas Music

Christmas-Spirit-575x431Friends, 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!

New Shows!

Our New Shows

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.

Thanks so much for listening!
