“True country music is honesty, sincerity and real life to the hilt.” – Garth Brooks.
Ekurhuleni residents who feel the same need look no further than Caxton Radio, where Benoni’s internationally acclaimed country songstress HunTer Leite is now charming the airwaves as the latest hot addition to the streaming station’s line-up of presenters.


 [LISTEN] HunTer continues to amaze fans

According to Caxton Radio’s Paul Rotherham, HunTer’s The Country Countdown show on Sunday nights from 6pm to 9pm has been, pardon the pun, an absolute hit with streaming listeners.
HunTer had recorded a country show and submitted it to another radio station for consideration, but when she did not hear back from them the award-winning country artist decided to put the show on YouTube for all her fans to enjoy.
“I also sent Paul a copy and was over the moon to get a very positive response from him,” HunTer said.
“The Country Countdown kicked off on Caxton Radio at the beginning of April and I’m having so much fun doing it and interacting with listeners.
“I absolutely love presenting and sharing music in all forms.
“Country, however, is close to my heart as its such real music, there’s a story behind every song and it’s generally feel-good music.
“And, of course, country music is what opened the world’s eyes to me as a performer and vocalist.”
