The COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION has presented its International Broadcaster Award to RADIO TAY’s KEN MACLEOD. MACLEOD, who resides in SCOTLAND, has hosted radio show “IT’S COUNTRY” since 1980.
“IT’S COUNTRY” is RADIO TAY’s longest running program and has featured guests such as GARTH BROOKS, JOHNNY CASH, VINCE GILL, TOBY KEITH, BRAD PAISLEY, and countless other AMERICAN, BRITISH and IRISH Country artists.
"I'm thrilled with my award,” said MACLEOD. “I love this music and the many, many talented singers and musicians who produce it. I also enormously enjoy introducing the music to the audience at RADIO TAY and their loyalty and support for the shows for the past 32 years is very important to me. But this award from CMA is truly special. It's recognition from my peers in the Country music world that I have contributed something to preserving and promoting this wonderful music. That means a great deal to me. As we say here in SCOTLAND, I'm well chuffed!"
