The former lead star of hit show Nashville sits down with James Gilmore before her sold out show at London's Royal Festival Hall
When you look at the rise of country music culture globally, you can easily give credit to Clare Bowen and her team on the hit show ‘Nashville’ for enabling country artists to sell out venues in most cities around the world.

In the latest episode of 10 Minutes More (with Kup & Gurr), George Kup and Callum Gurr invite you to share your opinion on where Under-18's should be allowed to drink energy drinks,…

Drake, per usual, has been inescapable this summer. 'In My Feeling' and 'Nice For What' top the charts, but there’s depth to these bangers. We argue for hearing one as a meditation on fragile masculinity, the other as a paean to NOLA Bounce.
Drake – In My Feelings
Drake – Nice For What
Lauryn Hill – Ex Factor
The Showboys – Drag Rap (Triggaman)
Cameron Paul – Brown Beat
Cheeky Black – Let Me Get…
