Introducing Nashville 2019

The Country Music Association’s international artist-focused touring series, Introducing Nashville, has announced UK dates for its upcoming tour this autumn. Taking place 16th - 21st October the tour will make stops in Manchester, Gateshead, Glasgow, Brighton and London. **Please note, unfortunately Chris Lane can no longer join the UK tour this time around but hopes to be part of this series in the future. They are thrilled, however, to have Walker Hayes join this line-up of incredibly talented artists.** The powerhouse line-up will introduce international fans to Country artists Danielle Bradbery, Travis Denning, Walker Hayes and Rachel Wammack. With its recent launch in March, Introducing Nashville has brought the Nashville-style songwriters round across the globe, with artists taking the stage together in an acoustic line-up to share the stories behind their songs with international audiences. “We are thrilled to be introducing this line-up of incredibly talented artists to international audiences and to revisit cities that we have toured before,” says Milly Olykan, CMA Vice President, International Relations and Development. “These artists are a great representation of what is current in Nashville right now – and a perfect way to showcase to new audiences how broad a genre Country is.” So far in 2019, the tour has brought performances to fans in Amsterdam, Berlin, Auckland, New Zealand, Tokyo and multiple cities throughout Australia, featuring a variety of artists including Brandy Clark, Devin Dawson, Lindsay Ell, Lauren Jenkins, Logan Mize and Tenille Townes. The unique format of the show has resonated with international audiences and allowed them to connect with artists in a new and personal way.
