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.
Plus my latest column for Songwriting Magazine is now online! Discussing online resources for musicians. With so many sites out there, what sites and tools provide help to independent artists like myself.
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas! Here’s an Xmas treat for you if you’re still feeling festive, performing my Christmas single & a cover of Wham’s ‘Last Christmas’ on the Reverb Christmas Special at UEA TV. Am on from 1:14 here!

Excited to play 2 festivals last weekend. First up was the lovely boutique music and poetry festival Gypsy In The Field which was absolutely lovely with a great friendly vibe. Then on Sunday it was Homegrown Music Festival, a great new festival supporting talented artists in the Eastern region. Again, everyone was so welcoming and up for a fun time. Roll on next summer!
