Y'all come back

We knew in March that BBC Director of Music Bob Shennan had been awarded the Country Music Association's Wesley Rose International Media Achievement Award; here's the trophy being presented to Bob (left) in London by someone called Hunter Hayes.

The CMA website explains; "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. In his capacity of CMA Board member, Shennan also chairs the newly formed CMA U.K. Task Force."

Bob says: “It is a great privilege to serve on the Board of the CMA and this award is a wonderful honor (American website). Country Music is enjoying a golden age in the U.K. The BBC is here to support great music, and I am proud to do my bit.”

Hunter Hayes In Session on Radio 2 is still available on catch-up. His first UK album is called "I want crazy" (he's American). The single has been played 13 times over the last 30 days on  Radio 2.
