Boston is getting a new country music station, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Boston announced today. 101.7 The Bull will go into effect right away, featuring music from artists like Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, and Miranda Lambert. It will feature the morning program “The Bobby Bones Show” starting this summer.

Meanwhile, the all-dance music station Evolution 101.7 will move off FM radio, but stay on iHeartRadio and HD radios at 107.9 HD2, the station announced earlier on its Facebook page.

In a statement, the year-and-a-half old station said it will continue to support the local Boston dance scene, clubs, and shows. Pete Tong, DJ Costa, DJ Cesar, Sisanie, and other Evolution Underground DJs will keep the same shows and music.
