Sue who lived in Petersfield, Hampshire was inducted into the British Country Music Hall of Fame for services to British Country music. Sue was the co-owner and editor of Southern Country magazine, set up to cover the south of the UK from Coventry down.
The encouragement to all venues to write their reports regularly was also a great spur to bands to get good reviews and get better known. This also encouraged clubs to book acts they had seen mentioned at other venues. Blowing that gentle breeze of publicity on all the many gig albums released by the bands gave them a noticeboard that had been missing from the scene.
Sue set up the UK Radio Awards in conjunction with the many local radio stations broadcasting a Country show. The UK Radio Awards take place at .Lakeside venue, Surrey every February. Sue was a very respected journalist who had a fair eye and ear when reviewing shows.
