The Shires are probably our most successful Country artists and just before lockdown last March, they released album number four ‘Good Years’ but had to put their tour on hold. The tour has been put back to 2022 but they are going to treat their fans, and hopefully some new fans, to an exclusive live gig to be streamed on Saturday, April 10th via Stabal. You can find out more here.
If you were walking around London today, you may have noticed some of the city’s most recognised statues sporting pink cowboy hats. That might have something to do with The Shires, the biggest-selling UK Country act of all time, who release their new album ‘Accidentally On Purpose’ on Friday April 20th.
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.
