Country Gal Corral


Join author and speaker, Brenda Black, each week as she swings wide the gate and invites you to circle up at the Country Gal Corral. It’s a place to share life and all of its beautiful, often unpredictable blessings from God! It’s all about country livin’, good eatin’, hot topics, cool fun, and a whole lot of down home philosophy. We hope you’ll wander by where the gate’s open and ready for company.

Country Gal Corral can be heard each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on Ag 1280. Each show will air at 9:35 a.m. and also at 3:35 p.m. Plus you can listen to recently aired segments right here.
