After 27 years with ACC, Kingsley took the show's format over to Jones Radio (now Dial Global) to create ''Bob Kingsley's Country Top 40''. (''ACC'', meanwhile, continues to this day, hosted by Kix Brooks of the now-former duo Music/BrooksAndDunn.) ''Country Top 40'', or [=CT40=] as the show is sometimes referred to, presents the top 40 country hits for each week according to ''Mediabase'' (as opposed to the ''Billboard'' charts, which ACC would continue to use through 2009). Other features include listener requests (one per show; two until summer 2014), "[=CT40 Vault=]" (a previous #1 hit preceded by snippets of other previous #1 hits, the entireties of which can be listened to online; this feature replaced the second listener request in summer 2014), a handful of classics, stories behind the songs, and interviews with artists. Another feature is "[=CT40=] Flashback", done once a month, which presents several facts on a given year, followed by snippets of the top 5 country hits on the current month in that year.

* {{Bowdlerize}}: A strange zig-zagging. Bob seemed just fine playing Music/ZacBrownBand's "Toes" uncensored – the lyric, "''I've got my toes in the water/ass in the sand''" – when it was scaling the charts, but every occurrence of the song after the fact has been censored ("''I've got my toes in the water/toes in the sand''").

* GuestHost: Jeffrey Steele filled in for Bob in late 2008 and 2009. Steele was surprisingly comfortable in the role, often handling listener requests for songs that he co-wrote (even some that he sang as a member of Boy Howdy) and even hauling out the guitar to perform a cover in the middle of the top 10. Steele's first fill-in was followed by another fill-in by Jack Ingram.
