The show’s Executive Producer is Sweet Tea Country, who is also the afternoon DJ on the Carolina Country Radio Network (100.1 WFAY in Fayetteville, NC and 103.7 WNMB in North Myrtle Beach, SC).
According to Sweet Tea, “I can give them the canvas…which are the giant megaphones of our Radio stations. But our artists have to create their musical masterpieces. The CCMAs allow these musicians to be recognized for their hard work.” She also says that country music fans aren’t neglected because the show is also a way for fans to connect with the musicians.
