Rob & Romesh vs Country Music

Rob & Romesh vs Country Music

Series 1



Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan start this sojourn not in the US, but at the O2 Arena to see Shania Twain. Rob is in his element (“I feel like a mum at a hen do!”) as he thrashes around to That Don’t Impress Me Much. Romesh, obviously, doesn’t look impressed at all.

With the faux-jeopardy of just three days to write and perform their own song, they fly to Nashville to caterwaul through a John Denver classic and try on increasingly ridiculous outfits. Romesh’s reaction when Rob emerges in a shirt and Stetson emblazoned with the American flag is a highlight.

Ahead of performing, Romesh warns the packed bar: “Whatever your expectations are, please lower them.” The opposite is definitely the case here: this is a truly joyous hour of TV.


Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan meet Shania Twain as they investigate the world of country music, taking to the stage in Nashville to perform a song they have written.
