Chris’s passion for country music came about when he moved to Texas and discovered Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and Alan Jackson on the radio. He quickly got hooked, and brought the country bug back with him five years later.
An audio producer by day, Chris started “Chris Country” as a joke between friends, and it’s snowballed since then! He’s interviewed numerous country singers including Kacey Musgraves, Lady Antebellum and Eric Church, and he’s delighted that his show is heard not only on Chris Country, but around 20 other stations across the UK.
Away from the studio, Chris is a fan of VW camper vans, cider and basset hounds. He’s married to his Californian sweetheart Andrea, who prefers the American weather to ours!
