I'm in NE Ohio and country gets some airplay up here. Now it is definitely prevalent in the Columbus area and southern Ohio.

Is it an available option on my radio? Yes. Do I ever utilize said option and actually listen to it? Heck no. But that's me. My dad loves it.

I live in NY and I remember years ago there was some AM station I think that played country music...but I believe that is gone now since there is no demand for it around here.

Definitely not the "South" here.....Ontario Canada and yes we have country music stations. (however, you'll never catch me listening. Just not my preference. ) To each his own though.

WKLB in Boston (which is usually on MY radio!), WOKQ in Portsmouth/Dover NH, and oh, shoot - 98.1 in New Bedford MA/Providence RI - sorry, offhand I don't recall the station's call letters.

And the first thing I do in a rental car in Las Vegas is find the danged country music station!

The closest we get to country songs around here are Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift and only their real pop stuff, like the cheating song where she carved her name into his leather seats! Oh and they did used to play that Achy Breaky Heart song way back when...whatever happened to that guy?
Ah, c'mon - "Before He Cheats" may be a crossover hit, but it's a country song through and through . And that "Achy Breaky" guy? I heard he has a kid who sings and maybe acts a little?

I live outside of Pittsburgh, and I can get a ton of country stations. There is one main station (Y108), but I can get a bunch of different Froggy stations on my drive home from work.

I'd say country music is very popular here -- Kenny Chesney has just about sold-out Heinz Field the past few summers. I've went to two of his shows, and they are so much fun. All the big country stars usually come thru Pittsburgh on their tours.

Another one from right outside NYC. On our FM stations, there are no country stations. I'm a big Carrie Underwood fan and I can never find her on the radio other than Before He Cheats maybe once a month. I do have 1 country station that I listen to on my XM radio.

When they had the CMAs here a couple of years ago I remember they were like the CMAs are in NY where there is no country music station-doesn't make a lot of sense.
I'm right outside, too, and I don't know of any.
