From their website: Following the acclaimed success of Country to Country 2013, an outstanding line up of music stars are again heading across the Atlantic for a huge two-day music festival extravaganza at The O2 on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 March 2014.

Legendary broadcaster Bob Harris will again be compering the festival:

“It is a very exciting time for Country music in the UK. C2C 2013 was a fantastic experience and next year’s festival promises to be another massive milestone. I am thrilled to be compering again and providing huge coverage on ‘Bob Harris Country’ on BBC Radio 2 when Nashville comes to London. See you at The O2!”

Looks like it’s going to be a great weekend. I’ll be posting the time I’m playing in the tour section.
