Ben Earle from British Country Duo, The Shires is joining Absolute Radio Country to host a new Sunday morning show.
His first show will be on Sunday 3 October from 9am –12pm, where he’ll play his favourite country artists, as well as introducing listeners to some of his ‘ones to watch’.
No stranger to presenting, in 2020 Ben won the International Broadcaster of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards whilst also having the fastest selling UK country album in history, as part of The Shires.
The singer joins Absolute Radio Country’s weekend line up, which already features country music afficionados Una Healy, Baylen Leonard, Matt Spracklen, Jennie Longdon, DJ Hish and The Nashville Show.
“I am really excited to be joining the station,” commented Ben. “Country Music has grown and grown in popularity in the UK and to be part of a station which is so passionate about the genre is great for an artist like me. It definitely feels like home.”
Absolute Radio’s Content Director Paul Sylvester added: “Ben’s incredible knowledge and experience of Country Music will bring a new perspective to the expanding Absolute Radio Country schedule. His credibility as a musician and award-winning skills as a broadcaster mean he’ll be able to offer a personal insight into the songs he’ll choose to play.”
