SCA digital radio content director Jaime Chaux (wearing a 10 gallon hat) said: “Modern country music just keeps growing, but gets little exposure in metro Australia. The Range is like a parallel universe of big hits and new stars, just from the country world. With the continued growth of digital radio, The Range gives modern country a chance to be heard by new audiences.”
