Producer Michael Knox will debut a new radio show, KNOX Country 360, on Friday, June 29.
Based in Nashville, the new show is managed by Michael Knox along with Donny Walker (former executive at Westwood One, Cumulus Media, BDS, Billboard Magazine), and Shalacy Griffin, currently the Senior Vice President of Operations for Music Knox, LLC.
KNOX Country 360 will offer 10-12 songs per hour, mixing current hits with re-currents and trending music, as well as personal stories from Knox and artist interviews and performances. The show will also include a podcast component.
“Radio is where country music fans connect with the music and artists they love, throughout their day,” observed Knox. “I’ve worked in production, management, and publishing, with record labels, and now radio. I’m excited about being on the air where I can bring country’s biggest stars directly to fans. Focus 360 has the relationships with radio stations and advertisers that make them the perfect partner to help us succeed.”
“Few people in Music Row history have turned creativity into chart success as well as Michael,” stated Phil Brown, Chief Executive Officer of Focus 360. “He is one of Nashville’s most original-thinking business minds and one of its most successful groomers of talent and song placement. We are delighted to partner with him and bring his star-studded, music-filled show to radio.”
In addition to production work that has helped sell more than 18 million albums and 40 million singles (including 21 No. 1 career singles) Knox’s multi-faceted career has included time as an executive at music publisher Warner/Chappell Music. He currently serves as vice president for peermusic in Nashville, and also formed the production management company Music Knox with client Michael Tyler (Reviver Records).

Superstar announces 34-city trek with support from Luke Combs and Lauren Alaina.
Jason Aldean has announced his new summer tour. Named for a song on Aldean’s forthcoming album, the High Noon Neon Tour opens with a May 10th show at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri, and heads on to arenas and amphitheaters, including Madison Square Garden and Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, before wrapping up September 29th in California.
Notably absent from the itinerary are some of the famed stadiums Aldean has played in the past, including Boston’s Fenway Park and Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania, though he does have a July 21st show at SunTrust Park, home to the Atlanta Braves. Luke Combs and Lauren Alaina, both of whom are coming off major breakthroughs in 2017, will support.
The High Noon Tour will be Aldean’s first major trek since he wrapped up his 2017 touring season on October 28th, less than a month after his set at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas was interrupted by a gunman’s deadly attack. Shortly after the incident, Aldean made a triumphant, defiant return to the stage in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and delivered one of the most emotional performances of his career.
The Georgia native’s most recent single was “They Don’t Know,” a Number Three-charting hit that served as the title track on his seventh full-length album. There’s no official word on when the follow-up LP will appear, but Aldean has consistently released his albums every other fall since 2010’s My Kinda Party. They Don’t Know made its debut in September 2016.
