This year seemed particularly political on The Country, as the rural community expressed concerns over the Government's farming policies, especially freshwater reforms.
Not only that, but there was also a general election and a global pandemic to contend with.
However, the most popular interviews of 2020 tended to veer away from these topics and focus on diverse issues such as mental health, television appearances and - possibly most famously - tractor driving.
There was one politician in particular whose interviews captured our audience's attention, with three of the top five concerning his antics - the now former Deputy Prime Minister, Winston Peters.
Here are The Country's five most popular interviews of 2020

Judith Collins joins the "anyone can drive a tractor" debate
Jamie Mackay caught up with National Leader Judith Collins in August, to ask for her thoughts on Winston Peters' assertion that tractor driving wasn't that difficult. Collins grew up on a farm and was under no illusions about her ability to master one of today's machines.
