Shannon Steele ​of Kickin' Kountry 101 certainly is no stranger to country radio; in fact he’s been in it since the age of 12, and his fingers have been on the pulse of the music business ever since. Like many, Steele discovered Ashley Jo through her massive presence on Tik Tok, and he has been following her ever since. 

"I stumbled upon Ashley Jo on TikTok and was immediately blown away by her voice. Her powerful vocals and the grace with which she carries herself are truly mesmerizing. From the first note, I knew she was destined for stardom. Keep an eye on this rising country star!" Steele said.

Meanwhile, his station Kickin Kountry 101 has skyrocketed over the past year to over 500,000 listeners. It will be one of 25 radio stations among major market and nationally syndicated shows, and the only digital station amongst them, to interview top Country Stars at the prestigious CMA and ACM Awards. This honor places Kickin Kountry 101 at the forefront of country music broadcasting as part of the exclusive and coveted Sharla McCoy's Music Row Live Broadcast Event. This is a true mark of distinction for the station, considering McCoy’s own country music pedigree; she has been called one of the most powerful women in country music, as a producer, and manager for over 30 years.
