From Stapleford, Nottingham, Chris & Bev were inducted as a partnership for their belief in the Country music scene. They encourage both young acts to perform and youngsters to embrace the music. They are best known for the promotion of the Americana International music festival which was held at the Newark Showground which attracted in excess of 40,000 people each year to enjoy the top American acts mixing their music on the main stage with the cream of the UK performers.
They acknowledged the input of rockabilly and the skill of singer/ songwriters while still finding space for the Country music line dancers. Travelling to many events in the UK, USA and the Continent they were amongst the top talent spotters in the United Kingdom.
