“I am first and foremost a fan of Country music,” said Kingsley, “and I’m delighted that we’re opening the vaults of ACC during one of Country’s great eras. These shows spotlight both Hall of Famers and exciting young acts and, as always, my role is part tour guide, part storyteller. What could be better than being part of the weekend of millions of Country fans? How about doing it twice? I’m looking forward to the launch of American Country Countdown Rewind with me!”
