“Blues, boogie, R&B, old soul, rock, & pop, even a little country- if it feels right, we throw it on… You’ll hear the music from Chicago down to New Orleans, and from the Beachside Pavilions along the Carolina Coast to the Juke Joints of the Mississippi Delta, (& with a sprinkling of flavourful tunes from this side of the border), we mix up a tasty musical gumbo, suitable for celebration on a Saturday Night.”
Country Cross Roads follows Canoe FM’s iconic, classic country show “Canoeing in the Country” Saturdays noon to 1pm.
Take a step across the country road with host, Sally Howson, as she takes a wider listen to some newer tunes with a bit of a twist to the twang. Music that still works with the classic Country themes, “lovin’, cheatin’, hurtin’, leavin’, ‘n’ startin’ all over again”, that will ease you into the rest of your Saturday listening.
Each week an artist or band with at least one cowboy boot in the Country is highlighted; some more mainstream, and some music that crosses the road between rock, country and folk.
Tune in each Saturday to hear what’s happening in newer country music. Sally showcases great Canadian Country artists.
