Bill Melody Unlike most other radio stations that program country music, Bill Melody’s Country Music Hall features all types of the genre from Nashville’s modern sounds of Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and Taylor Swift to the classic country sounds of Ray Price, Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams, Sr., and other legends of the Grand Ole Opry, along with a mixed-bag of Kentucky fried Bluegrass, authentic Lafayette, Louisiana style Cajun, and a distinct blend of Southern Gospel. It’s America’s music at its best.
