When Clear Channel Communications, which programs Nashville!, decided to add commercials to it in April 2006, XM retaliated by adding US Country and replacing Nashville! with this channel on AOL Radio, XM Radio Online, XM Canada and on DirecTV.
Between 2008-04-01 and 2008-05-31, the channel featured the music of country singer George Strait 24/7, temporarily pre-empting normal programming on the channel. This was the third XM single artist mirco-channel; however, this was the first one to replace or pre-empt a current channel.
