Country Music Week begins Monday October 2nd but the opening act is yet to be announced. The week is made to show off artists are having a big impact on today’s country music scene. Country Music Week is exciting for UK country fans as it shows that country is growing here as more artists are coming over to perform for English crowds. It makes the wait until C2C seem slightly easier!
While we know that the week takes place over 2nd-8th October 2017, we do not yet have a complete line up.
It was revealed today however, that amongst other shows, there will be a CMA songwriters series featuring 4 artists including Randy Houser and Angaleena Presley on Tuesday 3rd and Under the Apple Tree Sessions with appearances from the ones to watch, including Seth Ennis and Catherine McGrath on Saturday 7th. Both Ennis and McGrath had standout sets at C2C last year, with McGrath going on to support The Shires on their UK tour, and Ennis with an upcoming gig in the UK as opening act for Little Big Town.
More acts to be announced soon.
