The Real Country Countdown is a weekly program hosted by Jimmy Eldridge counting down the Top 20 Most Listened To Real Country Songs based on the Texas Music Pickers weekly Spotify Chart.
I am a music lover from way back. I spent many years chasing the dream and doing what I loved, music. After spending 20 plus years on the performance side of music, I decided to hang it up and get a “Real” job.
A few years ago my good friend Joel Johnson began talking to me about getting into radio, something that I had been interested in for a long time. After continuous prodding and nagging from Joel, I decided to give it a shot. After flirting with an internet Red Dirt Country station, I decided to start the Real Country Countdown. The rest is, as they say…History!
Since starting the Real Country Countdown in March of 2017, we have grown to experience a reach of nearly 125,000 per week and growing.
