Channel 7 covers the Country Scene

Joe’s Bar, US99 and CountryMusicChicago.com received a special shout out from ABC7 Chicago reporter John Garcia during a special segment featuring the local country music scene.  The report aired on the 10PM newscast following the CMA Awards, which also aired on the same network.
