Led by fan-favourite PURE COUNTRY host Shannon Ella, the show highlights the newest and hottest artists in country music, and delivers exclusive interviews with musicians on the rise, stories behind chart-topping songs, and new music recommendations from the genre's biggest stars.

"This show will be a regular destination for country music fans to be introduced to amazing new artists," said Ella.

This show is designed to give their songs a chance to be heard, and I can't wait to share them with listeners."
Raised on a horse farm north of Toronto, Shannon Ella grew up with country music in her veins. After training and competing for years across North America, Ella's love of horses took her to the University of Louisville where she studied Communications.
In 2019, Ella became the host of PURE COUNTRY's nationally syndicated midday show. In 2020, Ella was recognized as the CCMA's Country Personality of the Year, and as CMAOntario's Industry Person of the Year for her exceptional contributions to the country radio scene.
