Carrie Underwood headlines The Long Road Festival
There was a surprise announcement from the newly formed Long Road Festival, held in Leicestershire this September (7-9th to be exact).
One Carrie Underwood will be headlining on the Saturday night, and she's the biggest announcement of a ridiculously quality line-up so far. Topping the Rhinestone Stage this is the country superstar's first appearance in the UK for a couple of years.
Over the rest of the weekend you'll see well-known acts like Ward Thomas, The Shires, Billy Bragg, and Lee-Ann Womack joined by some of the best country acts from Nasvhille and beyond, the likes of Charlie Worsham, Angaleena Presley, Caroline Spence, Dori Freeman, Parker Millsap, Elizabeth Cook, The Wood Brothers, and a heap more.
Most of these acts TDF have been championing for the last few years so it's great to see them coming to the UK and all being on one bill at the festival. We're excited for September and so should you be.
Tickets are available from the festival website now. For all updates from the festival follow the guys on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
