According to the world's largest radio ratings service, Arbitron:
"No. 1 Across The Board Country was “America’s music format,”
ranking No. 1 both in terms of number of stations (1,683) and in popularity,
registering a 12.7% share of listening overall in Spring 2007. That marked
three straight years of increases, and was slightly above Country’s 12.6%
mark of Spring 2006. Classic Country and New Country stations contributed
299 and 102 stations, respectively, for a total of 2,084 outlets.
Country was the No. 1 format among adults 18-24, 25-34, 35-44 and 45-54
years old. It ranked No. 2 among Adults 55-65 and 65+.
Country radio’s focus on younger artists was reflected in growth
of its 12- to 34-year-old listener composition, which gained from 28%
to 31% between Spring 2002-2007. Though Country stations were thought
to be chiefly focused on Women, the gender balance has shifted to Women
only 1.3% between 2002-2007."

I think it would be more interesting to ask where. I'm in LA right now and don't even know what the country station here is. Its mostly Top 40 and Rap!
