Story by Jack Foley

CARRIE Underwood and Dwight Yoakam are among the acts to be announced for Country To Country, the UK and Ireland’s largest country music festival, in March 2016.

They will be joined by Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Little Big Town, Kacey Musgraves, Thomas Rhett, Sam Hunt and Chris Stapleton plus Maddie and Tae, Andrew Combs and Ashley Monroe.

For the first time Country To Country will be held over three consecutive days – Friday, March 11, Saturday, March 12 and Sunday, March 13, 2016 – in three cities: The O2, London, Glasgow Clyde Auditorium and Dublin 3Arena.

The massively popular satellite stage will also be returning to The O2, London in 2016.

Ashley Monroe is the first artist confirmed for the stage, with further acts to be revealed for the other two days in due course. Ashley will be performing on the main stage in Glasgow and Dublin.

It follows the storming success of C2C 2015 earlier this year when 80,000 country fans packed out The O2, London and 3Arena Dublin for C2C 2015 that saw multi-million selling megastars Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, and acclaimed artists Lee Ann Womack, Brantley Gilbert, Brandy Clark and Kip Moore take to the main stage, as well as launching the brand new satellite stage which saw performances from UK talent such as The Shires, Ward Thomas and Sam Palladio.

Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Friday, October 9, 2015.
