“It’s a celebration of the music from America’s front porch,” says Michael Johnathon from his own log cabin front porch in Kentucky. “It’s about the artists and songs and spirit of rural America driven by the excitement and power of a live audience. Viewers on Country Road TV get to sit back and let the cares of the world drift away as we take a step back into the tradition of old-time radio, but with a fresh approach. It’s a live audience radio show filmed for television.”
