So my name is Peter the owner of Lets Talk Country Music – UK. I grew up in the ’90s in Manchester listening to Country Music. My Mum was a massive fan of Johnny Cash and my older brother was also a Country Music fan. This meant that CMT was pretty much on the television non-stop while I was growing up.
Listening to all the greats of the ’90s such as Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Shania Twain and more I instantly fell in love with the genre. Even listening to the Dixie Chick, Leann Rimes and many more years after CMT last broadcasted in this country.
For a long time, I was convinced I was the only person who liked this type of music in this country. Now with the explosion of Country Music over the last few years. With some of the worlds top artists now regularly coming over to our shores and some fantastic homegrown talent like Catherine McGrath, Ward Thomas and the Shires on the scene. I wanted to create a space to talk about and share my views on the music I have grown up to love. This is why I have decided to create Lets Talk Country Music UK.
