London is hosting the biggest party to ever hit the Forest City – the biggest event that’s ever been ours, outside of sports…Canadian Country Music Week. To celebrate, we’re looking at 10 FM96 songs that have that southern twang. There’s an undeniable connection between country and rock and roll, whether you’d like to admit it or not!
This weekend’s festivities bring in a projected 10 million bucks for our economy as Canada’s biggest country stars roll in for live performances and interviews with our sister station, Country 104. The awards show is Sunday night at Budweiser Gardens with host Jessi Cruikshank.
P.S. The Doc Walker 20th Anniversary Show and Dead Flowers Country Tribute to Rolling Stones is at the Fanshawe College Downtown Stage and it’s free on Saturday night!

We lost Johnny Cash this week 13 years ago, on September 12th, 2003.
