Country superstars are joining forces for the first time in London to create C2C: Country to Country.
Some of the biggest names in the business are heading across the Atlantic for a huge two-day music festival extravaganza at The O2 London in March 2013.
On Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th March 2013, C2C: Country to Country will see a line up of some of the leading country music artists in the world on stage together, including Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Darius Rucker, Vince Gill, Little Big Town, Brantley Gilbert, Kristian Bush, LeAnn Rimes and others to be announced shortly.
The sound of Nashville at the world's most popular venue marks a major milestone in the UK's love of country, where major US artists sell out arenas around the country.
The likes of LeAnn Rimes and Carrie Underwood have had a massive effect on both the UK and US charts by appealing to modern day listeners while echoing the traditional sounds of the greatest country singers. Carrie Underwood's sell out London performance last summer was the latest milestone and illustrated the UK's huge appetite for the new sounds of country.
The O2 and SJM Concerts in association with the Country Music Association have established C2C with the intention of it becoming an annual event.
With more artists and stages to be announced for 60,000 music fans across the weekend C2C: Country to Country is not to be missed:

Little Big Town
Sunday 17th March
