The CMA (COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION) has awarded BRITISH radio personality ALLAN WATKISS with the CMA International Broadcaster Award. The award was presented last week when ALLAN was interviewing CMA Chief Executive Officer STEVE MOORE on the BBC RADIO SHEFFIELD.
"I am absolutely delighted to receive this award from CMA," said WATKISS. "It is very timely, coinciding with the 10th anniversary of my program, 'Your Country.' on BBC RADIO SHEFFIELD. I have thoroughly enjoyed working to make UK audiences more aware of the great Country music that is out there. To receive recognition from CMA in this way is amazing. Thank you to everyone who has supported my work over the last decade."
"ALLAN WATKISS has been an excellent ambassador for Country Music in GREAT BRITAIN," said MOORE. "CMA is proud to present him our International Broadcaster Award."
