: 80s Nashville - Taking Backthe Country

American country music reached crisis point in the early 1980s, when public perception of the genre was defined by the pop-country crossover hits of Eddie Rabbit , Crystal Gayle, Ronnie Milsap and Kenny Rogers. Singer Wynonna Judd looks at the Nashville acts - the so-called "new traditionalists" - who responded to this watered-down approach with music rooted in the sounds of early country music. The new wave included Lyle Lovett , Dwight Yoakam , Steve Earle and the O'Kanes, but was spearheaded by Randy Travis , whose 1986 album Storms of Life yielded four top ten US country hits - including two number ones - with none of them denting Billboard's pop charts. Judd looks at this era's immeasurable influence on "new country", with input from Randy Travis ,
Ricky Skaggs , Kieran Kane , Josh Turner and producers Tony Brown , Steve Buckingham and Kyle Lehning. Spoken word choices: page 121

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
