Brian Cloughs American Connection is one of the best and most friendly country music shows broadcast in the UK.

If you are a regular listener you will know that the show was hosted by euVue a North East multi-media on line magazine.
Due to its demise in August 2015 that website no longer exists.
We are therefore honoured and it is a privilege to be able to offer a new home to the American Connection Show presented by the 2010 CMA International Country Broadcaster Award winner Mr. Brian Clough!
Scroll down to the bottom of the page for further details, archived programmes and photos.
If you have discovered it via this site please tell Brian that Country Routes Magazine recommended the show.

The show is also broadcast live at 5pm on Tyne FM www.tynefm.com live from Newcastle Upon Tyne. You can also listen through Tune In if you would like to the free app on your mobile or tablet you can obtain it through Google Play and many more App providers.

Features include Brian’s pick for Album Of The Week and he takes a regular look at the Billboard Country Airplay Charts. Other features have included a listeners choice/ requests and Made in Britain returns! (where a UK country artist is put in spotlight)  
Country Routes New Blog is well aware of the scores of UK artists that are out there including all those that have performed on the C2C Festival Pop Up Stages as well as many other talented British acts.
If you’re a British working country artist (solo, duo, trio or bands) why not send an MP3 track with information or link to a brief bio, single, EP or album name, website address details, song availability and possibly any local gig dates you may have?
Providing the quality is up to scratch Brian would be only too pleased to give you a spin and give you a plug.
