Award-winning country music producer Michael Knox is celebrating the fourth anniversary of his nationally syndicated radio show Knox Country 360. To commemorate the milestone, Knox and co-host Shalacy Griffin will host a special July 4th show featuring their favorite moments from the past four years.
The show offers listeners closer access to Nashville’s hitmakers and songwriters, including Ashley Gorley, David Lee Murphy, Luke Laird, Rhett Atkins, Nicolle Galyon, Rodney Clawson, Liz Rose, Jessi Alexander, Josh Thompson, Dallas Davidson, Jennifer Hanson and more. The show also features Nashville industry insiders such as Ben Vaughn and Rusty Gaston, amongst others.
Based in Nashville, the show is produced by Knox and Donny Walker (former executive at Westwood One, Cumulus Media, BDS, Billboard Magazine). Hosted by Knox and Griffin, currently the Senior Vice President of Operations for Music Knox, LLC, Bill Bruce is also a key behind-the-scenes member known as “The Voice.”
This year, Knox Country 360 was selected by the ACM as a first-time nominee for National Weekly On-Air Personality of the Year with Knox and Griffin.
“I’m very proud of the four-year journey we have had together so far. From the excitement of our very first show back in 2018, to walking the red carpet at the 2022 ACM awards with my co-host Shalacy for our nomination for National Weekly On Air Personality, this has been such an incredible ride,” Knox shares. “Don’t misunderstand what I’m saying, because I know we’re famous because of me.”
“I have been a fan of radio my entire life so to be able to contribute to this industry has been a blessing,” adds Griffin. “I also agree with my co-host that he may be the ‘famous’ one, but everyone knows that we got our ACM nomination because of me. I think we would also agree that the show would not be possible without Donny Walker and Bill Bruce—those guys are rockstars!”
Knox is well established as one of Nashville’s in-demand music producers, playing a role in 28 No. 1 singles, including the recent Jason Aldean No. 1 “Trouble with a Heartbreak.” He has celebrated over 50 million singles and 25 million albums sold during his career.
In addition to his long-running role as Aldean’s primary producer, Knox’s production credits include Thomas Rhett, Kelly Clarkson, Ludacris, Trace Adkins, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Laine Hardy and Michael Tyler, amongst others. His record label, Music Knox Records/BBR Music Group, is working on material with Tim Montana, and he serves as a music publisher and Senior Vice President for peermusic Nashville.
