The Country Network (TCN), a music video television network based in the country music mecca, said it will expand to nearly three dozen cities by the first quarter of 2011.

TCN, which bills itself as "all country music, all the time," said it will be the only television network dedicated exclusively to airing country music videos.

There are other channels devoted to country music and culture, however, including CMT (Country Music Television) and GAC (Great American Country).

TCN said it will expand to six new cities served by Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc, which already offers TCN in 22 of its markets. TCN also said it signed an agreement with Young Broadcasting to air in four of its markets.

The 32 markets will bring TCN's coverage to 20 percent of U.S. television households, the network said.

"We are delighted to welcome these additional markets to the TCN fold," said Warren Hansen, founder and CEO of TCN.
