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!

Holidays are approaching!!

Happy Holidays from America’s Country!!

I am a huge fan of Holiday Music! In the past, we’ve played all Holiday music for the entire month of December. While my family, a few others, and myself have really enjoyed it, it’s not always the best strategy. This year, beginning the day after Thanksgiving, we will begin to slowly add Holiday songs to the normal rotation of Hot Country Hits. As we get closer to Christmas Day, we will have up to 4 or 5 songs per hour. For Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I will be playing 48 hours of Christmas Music and hopefully some long-form specials from our providers.

I want to share my love of the Season without overwhelming you all. Holiday music can sometimes be a very polarizing thing. A lot of people really love it, some folks really don’t like it at all. And yet further, some folks are just kinda OK with it. I hope to strike a good balance and provide the best to everyone.

I will be playing some of the well known classics from Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole that you all know and love along with some of the best from our stable of incredible Country artists like Blake Shelton and Martina McBride. As always, I will ask for and encourage your constant feedback. Please post on Twitter, Facebook, or on this post if things need to be adjusted. “Play More Holiday Music!”, “Don’t play so much Holiday Music!”, etc… I want to know!

Again, we wish all of you Happy Holidays and thanks for listening to America’s Country!

Love ya,
Timmy

Christmas Music 2013 Info

Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas!

Hey friends! Tis the Season for Christmas Music! I have always held a deep fondness for Christmas Music and am excited to be able to play a TON of the stuff over the next month or so! Because of our tremendous growth over the last couple years, it’s necessary to play a few commercials, as you’ve heard. Happily, it hasn’t been a huge turn-off and you all are still loving us! Thanks for that!

As I mentioned in my previous post, we’ll be playing 100% Christmas Music starting November 29th, the day after Thanksgiving. I will be removing all special programming from the weekends, except for a special or two specifically for Christmas. I will not be playing LDS Music on Sundays through this period. To keep up with the bills, I will need to play commercials up until Christmas Eve and continue commercial-free through Christmas Day. We will then keep playing Christmas Music through New Year’s Eve with normal breaks.

If you’ve been around for a few years, you know that I don’t just play the typical 200-300 Christmas Favorites that most of your FM stations play during this time of year. I have over 4,000 songs that span a huge variety of genres and from the dawn of music recordings to today’s modern “classics”. I also play those 200-300 favorites as well, of course, it would be silly if I didn’t!

If you own a business and would like to be a sponsor and advertise with us during Christmas, please email me: ads@americascountry.us.

Thank you all for listening and being our friends! I love you all! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I’m so happy to share your Holidays with you! Thank you for sharing yours with me. While we are in the midst of 100% Christmas Music, please try to remember the meaning of Christmas.

Whatever your religion or beliefs, Christmas is almost universal for giving and for sharing joy and being happy.

In the world there are many reasons to get down and be sad. People do horrible things. Crimes are committed. But if you can go out and create joy for someone else, you will find some yourself. There are also so many ways to help others. Just look around. Your neighbors might have some leaves on their lawn. Someone may need help bringing groceries or other items into their car at the store. Someone might just need a smile and a hello.

As this wonderful Season continues, let’s all make an effort to bring a smile to someone!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

We’re Back!!

We’re Back!! (For good this time!!) We were going to wait and do our full comeback launch on December 1st, but we just couldn’t stand to wait any longer!

As of Sunday afternoon, November 25th, we started streaming 100% Christmas Music! For the next few weeks, we will play nothing but Christmas Music. No commercials, just Christmas Music.

Any of you who have listened to our Christmas Music before knows you’re in for a special treat! We don’t just play the same 100-150 “traditional” songs over and over. No, sir! We have a library of over 2,000 Christmas and Holiday music that might just blow your mind! We take great care in making sure the music rotates so you shouldn’t hear many repeats either by the same performer or the same song.

We also only interrupt to briefly ID the station 3 times an hour. This means you can turn us on and leave us on all month! In your home, your car, your office, on your mobile devices, anywhere!

We will shortly be listed on the major listing services like Shoutcast, TuneIn, iTunes and Windows Media. Meanwhile, you can ALWAYS use this master link to get to our stream: http://bit.ly/TXVmf0 Please save, bookmark and favorite that link. It will ALWAYS work to bring you to the streaming page.

I’m so thrilled to be back on the air with you! It brings my heart so much joy. Thank you for listening to America’s Country!!

We thank you so much for your patience while we had this brief pause. I personally want to thank you for your understanding, support and loyalty. It means the world to me!
