[LISTEN] 'Country and road is the way to go' - Tumelo Maketekete, car enthusiast

In the car feature, our very own car guy Tumelo Maketekete chats about the personal relationship between country music and cars.

Maketekete says that there's something about the beat of a Kenny Rogers song and the road.

You get lost in the song and don't feel the need to rush adds Maketekete.

You cannot be touring and not playing music.

Everyone is different but country music works when I'm on the road says Maketekete.

A listener by the name of Tanya called in to tell Tumelo about the love she had for the song.

I just heard a snippet of that song and I loved every minute of it... I understand why you'd want to play it over and over again in your car.
