Country To Country is back for 2018

The UK's biggest country festival returns to London and Glasgow next March with a stellar line-up.

Now in its sixth year, Country To Country will once again take over London’s O2 and Glasgow’s SSE Hydro from 9 – 11 March 2018, pulling in thousands of country music fans from all across Europe. And with this year’s incredible line-up it is sure to be a special one.

At an official launch party earlier this month at Bush Hall as part of Country Music Week, legendary BBC Radio 2 presenter Bob Harris announced Country to Country Festival’s headliners as well as various acts across the weekend. Joining country power-couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s joint show are Kacey Musgraves and Little Big Town as headliners across the weekend.

Also confirmed for the festival are multi-platinum and acclaimed artists Emmylou Harris, Kip Moore, Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Combs, Margo Price and Midland. The C2C Spotlight Stage will return with performances from Ashley McBryde, Jillian Jacqueline, Lindsay Ell and Lukas Nelson.

Today, Country To Country confirmed that Nashville five-piece country icons Old Dominion will also be performing at next year’s event. And as if that isn’t enough country music excitement, the organisers just released the day splits. Check it out:

Last year saw Brad Paisley, Reba McIntyre and Zac Brown Band headline The O2 in London and Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium with support from the likes of Marty Stuart, Chris Young, Maren Morris and more.

Meet the 2018 headliners

Faith Hill and Tim McGraw have been big names in the music charts for the last three decades and started touring together in 1996 on McGraw’s Spontaneous Combustion tour. In 2000 they kicked off their record-breaking Soul2Soul tour, and continued its success in 2006-2007 when Soul2Soul II returned. Just last week, the couple announced their first ever joint album The Rest Of Our Lives which is due in November.

 
In early October Alabama natives Little Big Town played London’s Royal Albert Hall in London as part of Country Music Week where they announced their headline slot for next year’s festival. Having been nominated and won several American Country Music Awards, the trio have been going strong for almost 20 years. In 2016 they supported Carrie Underwood and Tim McGraw at Country To Country so it will be a big return for them as headliners next year.

 
Kacey Musgraves’ debut album Same Trailer Different Park was so good it won her a Grammy in 2014 for best country album. The Texas-born singer-songwriter began singing at age publicly at age 8 and wrote her first song at age 9. And if you’re still not impressed, she has also co-written and cut tracks for Miranda Lambert and Martina McBride.
