Country Music Stations

Country Music is a minority genre in the UK there is no doubt, but it is popular enough for the big radio groups to cater for it to some extent. Here we see Global’s Smooth offshoot Smooth Country firmly at the ‘pop’ end of country music spectrum, plus two stations for Bauer.. Downtown Country, a local offshoot of the Downtown brand, a station in Northern Ireland, plus Country Hits Radio, a national branded station which has been in operation since 2019, focused on modern country music and aimed at 25-44 year olds. One would imagine that both Bauer country stations might be programmed along similar lines, but the different numbers of songs and play profiles would suggest that these are still quite independently programmed at this stage at least..

We understand that Country Hits Radio is to be renamed into the Absolute Radio Network, also a Bauer brand anyway, in due course during 2021.
