Am I looking forward to Country to Country music festival ?

Hell, yes I am! Every year gets better than the last. I know more friends, listened to more music, learnt about new artists, rediscovered old favourites. Last year I had a ball, non stop laughter, dancing and general merriment.

I gambled on some acts staying over after C2C and lucked out with Sir Rosevelt and Brothers Osborne. Every year there’s one artist or group I love; Kip Moore, Eric Church, last year Drake White and this year, to nobody’s surprise it’s Midland.

They will be my highlight albeit they’ll only get 45 minutes. The line up really highlights the changes in country music at the moment, less bro Country and more Americana.

I’m really looking forward to seeing Lucas Nelson, his album is stunning. I think he will be this years Chris Stapleton. I’ve not seen Tim McGraw before so I’m excited to see him and Faith. We are lucky with the line up, each year there’s the usual moaners about the headliners but each time they pull out the artists winning the CMAs, the Grammys etc.

I’m staying over until the Wednesday in vain hope that there will be a solo gig by Midland.

Hi I’m Kate. I live with my long suffering husband and cat in Sussex, ten minutes from Brighton and an hour from London. I work full time and country music takes up most of my spare time, when I’m not at a gig you can find me on a tennis court or cooking for friends in my kitchen. My location means I can attend most gigs easily, assuming I have the finances! I’m a relatively new fan of country music, but once I found the country music Jesus that is Eric Church I’ve never looked back. My new love is Drake White and the Big Fire who stole the show at C2C2017, I flew to Zurich to see him play with Darius prior to C2C2017. My country music tastes are eclectic from bluegrass to honky tonk, and ballads to rock. I love finding new artists and sharing their music. I’m a big fan of social media and spend far too much time on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. My current favourites are: Eric Church, Drake White and The Big Fire, William Michael Morgan, Mo Pitney and Kip Moore
