A country music radio show from the UK and presented by CMA member Ben Atkinson. Our show has been on the air for thirteen years and is broadcast on stations in the UK, Ireland and Australia. We feature the best in country, roots, Americana and bluegrass, plus there's News from Nashvill, This Week in Country Music History and the Billboard charts.
The Billboard Country Albums chart counts down the top songs on US Radio each week. In order to build a connection with our friends and fellow stations over in the US, we’ve decided that on Ben’s Country Music Show we will bring you the Billboard Country Albums chart countdown each week.
In the second hour of the show, Ben brings you the very latest Billboard Country Abums Chart. He counts down the Top 5. Below you can find the latest chart and check where your favourite artist charted.
Ben also counts down the Billboard Country airplay chart, featuring the Top 10 songs on that chart and on US radio each week. You can find full details of the Billboard Country Airplay chart, right here on our website.
In recent history on both the Billboard Album and Airplay charts, Chris Stapleton and Luke Combs have made history. Both their debut and sophomore albums and singles from those records, have stayed in the charts for weeks at a time. Female artists have also come to the fore of late with Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris and Kelsea Ballerini singles climbing to the top of the charts.
A lot of the time, you will find the Billboard Country Charts in the US impact on the annual awards season. This includes the CMA, ACM and CMT awards. It is especially true in the album, single and song categories. We’ll also give you full details on each number one song and how it has impacted on the artist’s career.
Make sure you tune in to the show each week to hear the number one single on US Radio that week. It will be played in full in the last half hour of Ben’s Country Music Show.
