Kenny Johnson presents 'Sounds Country' every Sunday from BBC Radio Merseyside at 6pm - 8pm.

Sounds Country gives you comprehensive coverage on what country music is all about. Each week Kenny features tracks from the very latest import albums, oftentimes long before they are heard anywhere else! Kenny is always keeping up to date with what is going on in Nashville or Stateside in general.

Kenny also includes a look back at 'the way it used to be' - an excuse to recall some of the legendary names of yesterday, the sorts of artists who established the true sound of country music.

Over the years, Kenny has had the pleasure to interview 'Dr Hook,' 'Billy Jo Spears,' Steve Earle,' 'Geo Hamilton IV,' 'Bobby Bare,' 'Albert Lee,' and the late 'Tommy Collins,' to name but a few. With extensive coverage of 'bluegrass,' 'acoustic,' 'cajun,' 'zydeco' and 'rock-a-billy,' nothing is missed. If it's country and it's good, it's in!

In addition to the ocassional live music session, the weekly show features competitions, a gig guide, reviews and chat. Kenny also does an annual 'album of the year' which is quite a job to narrow down, but one that he enjoys.

After 28 years on air, Sounds Country could be described as Kenny's way to fill the needs of country music fans. Over the years, he has been delighted by stories of people who will not miss the show; even long distance lorry drivers tape it and listen back as they travel through the night.

Sounds Country is a must for any music fan, tune in on Sunday at 6pm - 8pm.
