Country Music Week announce first acts - and they're big
The first Country Music Week was announced in the lead up to the 2017 version of Country To Country Festival. Originally billed as new acts from the UK and US taking over London venues for the week, the first names for the week long celebration of all things country have now been announced. Contrary to initial expectations they're not small or new, they're Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives on Wednesday 4th October, and Kip Moore on Friday 6th October. Pretty impressive start.
Marty Stuart will be playing Cadogan Hall and Kip Moore's at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire. Oh, and Kip will be supported by the breakout stars if C2C, Drake White and the Big Fire.
Tickets for both shows go on sale Friday 19th May, go to the official website for more details.
If you're not in London, don't despair too much, Marty and Kip are taking their shows on the road to the usual towns.
