The Shires Release ‘Accidentally on Purpose’ Album Number 3 On April 20

The Shires are the UKs best selling and fastest selling Country act and have released two albums to date: the brilliant debut ‘Brave’, and the record breaking ‘My Universe’. Not only that but they became the first English act to sign to a major label in Nashville, the Home of Country Music, and will continue their upward momentum with an upcoming UK tour taking in not only the legendary Royal Albert Hall but also featuring a support slot with Michael Buble and Van Morrison at Hyde Park this summer. Having seen them play live, I’d really recommend trying to see them.

Kip Moore: a ‘Slowheart’ And A Sold Our Shepherd’s Bush – 6th Oct 2017

Kip Moore brought his ‘Slowheart’ tour to London last week as he performed a sold out gig at Sheperds Bush O2, as part of the Country Music Week. From early in the day the queues outside the venue grew as UK Country fans vied for the best spot in what would be a packed venue.

In fact at the very time Kip performed, just yards away at Bush Hall, “Whispering” Bob Harris would be announcing the line up for Country2Country 2018, the UK’s only multi day Country Music festival.

Jack Johnson has released his first studio album in 4 years and there are some predictable things about this album.
