If you've ever had the pleasure of seeing Kassi Ashton live I'm sure you fell in love with her quirky personality before you even heard that powerful voice. She's bubbly and always excited to be on stage, her songs have attitude and emotion, an incredible writer who works with other incredible writers, Kassi Ashton is the real deal! I was gutted not to see her this year as C2C was called off last minute but it was great that a...

March 17, 2020

The weekend was set to be a wash out, as the majority of fans began travelling down to London on Thursday news started filtering through of the imminent cancellation of CMA Songwriters Series and C2C Festival. Admittedly it was always under threat but the rumours began when artists started posting they were flying home due to Donald Trumps travel ban. As the day went on it became too late for many to cancel and get a refund on...

Catherine McGrath

One of, if not, the most successful UK Country acts is Catherine McGrath. Again, this is not her first rodeo. Her debut album Talk of this Town peaked at number 13 in the UK all genres chart and she has worked extensively with hit US Country writer Liz Rose.

Recommended Song: Grace

Filmore

There’s not a lot of info out there about Filmore but after seeing him live myself I can tell you that he’s a very exciting,...

A Thousand Horses

Perhaps the biggest name on the pop up stages is A Thousand Horses. It’s not their first trip to C2C and they have returned since. Signed to Big Machine Label Group their southern rock style of Country is popular with the UK crowd. Their biggest hit came in 2015 when Smoke reached the top spot on the US Country airplay chart.

Recommended Song: Smoke

Alex comes from Gainsborough in the state of Georgia,...

Well if there was any negativity surrounding the C2C announcement, there certainly wasn’t when it came to the CMA Songwriters announcement! Yes the CMA have pulled it out the bag bringing all three of the songwriting team the love junkies to our shores! I’ve had the pleasure of seeing them perform in Nashville at Tin Pan South in the past and what a treat it was. Together, the three of them have written a number of hits and al...

For those that know me you will be aware that Brandy Clark is one of my favourite artists and songwriters. Therefore I go to every concert with a slightly biased view! I couldn’t wait to review last nights concert as after speaking to her a couple of weeks back, I knew she was going to be playing new material off her upcoming record. This was also the first time in a long time that Brandy would be playing with a full band as o...

October 24, 2019

Well the announcement takes time to sink in for some of us, especially when evaluating what it means for the festival which is in it’s eighth year, and what it means for Country music in the UK. The initial reaction from me last night was “oh…I’ve seen all of them before…most of them at a previous C2C” but is this just our spoilt brat phase, isn’t it good that we have artists wanting to return to the UK? In this article we’ll...

October 21, 2019

Well Country Music Week is well and truly underway for me, it started on Saturday in Manchester at The Bridgewater Hall when The Adelaides opened up for Charles Esten. From what I’d heard of the girls in the past I will be honest, I wasn’t excited but I promised to give them a fair chance this time and I’m glad I did. Two well known country covers punctuated a mainly original set. My Church by Maren Morris sounded sublime with...

October 10, 2019

One of my favourite artists and songwriters of all time is Brandy Clark, the grammy nominated Country writer is the greatest storyteller around, and I was overjoyed to hear that a new album was just around the corner. As part of Country music week, Brandy is coming to our shores to play just one show in London and I was keen to chat to her again ahead of that show. It was the third time we’d had the pleasure of chatting but th...

So festival season is over but the music never stops, well not the country music anyway as Country Music Week is just around the corner! In its 3rd year, Country Music Week takes place every October and during this time artists from all over the World put on shows for us and the line up for C2C is announced. This year is looking better than ever and I’m here to take you through the must-see events. Though mostly based in the c...

Noah Schnacky was a new name to me before Country 2 Country, he had a couple of good tracks out but I knew little about him. However his performance and attitude really impressed me more than anyone's at C2C, his performance was so well thought out, his crowd engagement and his monologues were meticulously planned and executed. Back to the very basics he has a strong but sweet voice and great love songs. Before his show in Lon...
