Subscribers can also enjoy exclusive shows from artists such as Carrie Underwood, Jimmie Allen, Pat Green, and many more.

Apple Music subscribers can enjoy these Beats 1, Apple Music Hits, and Apple Music Country immediately wherever they listen to Apple Music. Apple is also introducing new Siri commands like "play Apple Music 1" or "play Apple Music Hits" to access these stations immediately.
