About the programme
Sounds Country, every Sunday afternoon (1400 - 1600) on BBC Radio Merseyside gives you comprehensive coverage on what country music is all about with a local gig guide, interviews and great music.
Born and raised on Country, Mike Shepherd shares his knowledge and musical influences from George Jones, Conway Twitty and Hank Marvin to Luke Bryan, Eric Church and everything in between.
He's been lucky enough to interview some of the biggest names on the scene including The Mavericks and Charley Pride.
Mike's aim is to widen people's perception of Country Music one song at a time.
