Shee-haw !

Congratulations to BBC Director of Music Bob Shennan, this year's recipient of the Wesley Rose International Media Achievement Award, from the Country Music Association. Here's the citation:

"Since Shennan took over as Controller of BBC Radio 2 in 2009, he has driven exposure opportunities and was instrumental in bringing Country Music into the mainstream arena. Now Director of Music, Shennan chairs the newly formed CMA U.K. Advisory Group and serves on the CMA Board of Directors."

Bob's award was announced on YouTube by Lady Antebellum, over here for the Country 2 Country Festival, carried live on BBC Radio 2's Country pop-up station. Clearly on first name terms (only) with Bob.
