Global’s country music playlist Smooth Country is getting upgraded and going on DAB in a number of places across the UK.

In addition, presenter Eamonn Kelly will host a show each weekday, from 9am till 1pm.

Smooth Country launches tomorrow, Tuesday 3rd September, along with Smooth Chill, a replacement of the 15 year old digital service playing chill out music.

Global says Smooth Country celebrates the very best in country music, featuring iconic artists including Dolly Parton, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Shania Twain and Lady Antebellum.
