Real Country is a 24-hour radio format produced by ABC Radio. Real Country, originally one of the Satellite Music Network stations, is marketed at the 18 to 54 demographic in rural areas of the United States. Their programming consists of a fairly broad playlist of "Today's Stars and the Legends." Classic country is the station's primary core, with frequent airplay of artists such as George Jones and Johnny Cash, while the station also plays newer hits, particularly by established artists such as George Strait. Real Country's playlist also tends to skew toward more male artists than many contemporary country music stations. []

More contemporary artists can be heard on ABC's other country format, Today's Best Country.
