Southern Halo's Hangin' With Halo Radio Show goes global with CMR Nashville

Southern Halo's Hangin' With Halo Radio Show Goes Global With CMR Nashville Beginning Today

"They bring a young outlook, great music and a fun show to our schedule."
Lee Williams, CEO and Owner, CMR Nashville

London / Nashville (December 19, 2016)
Southern Halo's popular weekly radio show, Hangin' With Halo, goes global with the addition of the program to CMR Nashville's line-up today.  Fans can listen via PC, Mac and TuneIn radio app for all smart Phones, tablets, and the new Amazon Echo.  Various Smart TV applications and a free CMR Nashville app are also available.

Hangin' With Halo CMR Nashville Broadcast Times
Mondays - 4 p.m. GMT / 10 a.m. CT and Midnight GMT / 6 p.m. CT    
Tuesdays - 8 a.m. GMT / 2 a.m. CT

CMR Nashville is Europe's #1 station and Natalia, Christina and Hannah are thrilled to be on board.  "This is a really cool early Christmas present, and a great way to wrap up an incredible year," notes Natalia.  "We couldn't be happier."  For the station's CEO and Owner Lee Williams, bringing Southern Halo and their Hangin' With Halo show to CMR is a natural evolution.  "We play their music on the station and air their music videos on our CM&T Video channel.  We've watched them grow as artists and their show just feels like a great fit for our listeners and the new breed of younger Country fans.  This should open the door to touring opportunities for the trio in the UK and Europe."
Steven J. Shelton and Natalia E. Morris are the show's executive producers/directors, and each episode includes a segment called "Nashville Buzz," which offers exciting updates on today's hottest Country artists.  Additionally, the members of Southern Halo share personal insights into their "crazy" lives and spin songs by their favorite artists. 

So, what did the Hangin' With Halo 100.7 WDMS-FM show sound like? 
Listen to this edited sample of the first programme giving you a flavour of what to expect:


Review & Show Rating:


Music included current radio singles contemporary sounds from the likes of Florida Georgia Line, Granger Smith, Lauren Alaina, Joe Nichols, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, Darius Rucker and LeAnn Rimes. The Nashville Buzz segment merely recapped news that has been previously published on main country music news websites and social media feeds. Instead we would have liked to have heard Southern Halo offer up their opinions on the latest songs, the current standing of the country music industry, how music is being consumed and an incite into being new artistes. The frequent and somewhat annoying adverts have little relevance to a European audience and centre on companies in the Nashville and surrounding areas.


Recently, they chatted about their upcoming holiday plans, affordable stocking stuffers, the Nashville Christmas Parade and inclusion in the newly-released book, Mojo Triangle Travel Guide by acclaimed author Mardi Allen (Sartoris Literary Group).

The group's 10 track self-titled debut CD (released 30 June 2015), featuring their Top 40 MusicRow CountryBreakout™Chart radio hits, "Little White Dress" and "Rewind," is available for purchase on iTunes


"Little White Dress" was the top Hotdisc track of 2015 where it ruled the European Hotdisc Top 40 Chart with an 8-week stay atop the chart begining Nov 15, 2015
Their Hotdisc follow up single Rewind made a debut at #3 and topped the chart for 2-weeks (chart dated July 24, 2016)

Their latest single "Living Like That" (promoted by GrassRoots) was sent to radio on December 5th with an Impact Date set for January 23rd, 2017.
