Dave Watkins


Dave got involved with community radio locally in Frome, Somerset in 2010, first of all with a sports show and then a year later, a Blues show. In 2014 he was named Independent Blues Broadcaster of the Year at the British Blues Awards. 2016 saw Dave leave the station and The Country Mile started to emerge in mid-2016, with one show on CMR Nashville.

However, it was clear better equipment and editing skills were needed so it wasn’t until January 2017 that the show launched properly. Since then, Dave has become widely heard around the world and has developed a format that plays all new release music from mainly independent artists.

Covering Traditional, Honky Tonk, Western, Bluegrass, Outlaw, Ameripolitan and more. He also writes reviews for Country Music People magazine and the Think Country and Country Evolution websites. Find out more via: http://www.facebook.com/thecountrymile

Dave also writes Bluegrass reviews for Lyric Magazine
