The UK Country Top 40 of 2020

2020 has been devastating for UK artists. No indoor gigs or outdoor festivals like Buckle & Boots and Black Deer, no British Country Music Festival or Long Road in September, no radio sessions or showcases or support slots with US acts and, even though it’s a gig for exposure, no Country2Country 2020.

Nonetheless, recordings have still emerged and every one of these songs has been released in the horrible year we have all had. Many have been played on Country Hits Radio or Chris Country, the big two radio stations, or supported by stations or websites like ARC Radio, Lyric Magazine, Your Life in a Song, Entertainment Focus, Off The Record.

The online UK Country Music Week 2020 unites over 50 artists, many of whom are included in this chart. UK CMW runs from November 30 to December 6.
