Our live coverage starts at 5pm when Graham L.Hall and Nutty Norah chat to the performing artists and Awards finalists - then Will "Big Dawg" Downie will guide you through the live event which starts at 7pm. Our Birthday Party And Awards features performances from nine guest artists, a three-course celebratory dinner, the announcement of the winners of the inaugural UKCountryRadio.com Awards, and, of course, our own Nutty Norah's Late Night Country Music Disco!
