About Craig Parry
BRIEF BIO
Lives in Caerphilly, From Pontypridd
Craig has had a love of country since a young age back at the start of the 1990’s when he listened to classic artists like Glen Campbell, Don Williams, Don McLean and Neil Diamond. It all really started when he saw a video of the Garth Brooks track ‘Ain’t Going Down…’ on the old CMT Europe satellite music video channel and then became a big Garth fan ever since. 

He moved into being a mobile DJ for many years and always tried to include as many country tracks as he could get away with! Today, he loves many modern artists like the Zac Brown Band, Chris Stapleton and Alan Jackson, discovering classic music going all the way back to the Roaring Twenties as much as discovering so many new artists especially those breaking through in the UK. Along with the enjoyment of preparing, researching and presenting the country shows, Craig always tries to support the artists through the social media pages or by attending as many gigs, festivals and country & western clubs as possible.
