Hundreds of acts play on dozens of stages every day, but the centre piece shows take place every night at the local football stadium, with 70,000 fans treated to a revue style show of the biggest and best in contemporary country music.

For the next four weeks Australian country star - and husband of Kelsea Ballerini! - Morgan Evans will be talking to the stars of those shows and introducing highlights from their live sets to give listeners in the UK a snapshot of the state of country music in 2018.
