Europe's biggest country music extravaganza

Country To Country, aka C2C, is the biggest dedicated country music festival in Europe, taking place each year in London, Dublin and Glasgow.

The festival was conceived in 2013 by two of the UK’s biggest promoters in conjunction with the Country Music Association. The first iteration took place that year at The O2 over two days, with performances from Nashville royalty including Carrie Underwood, Darius Rucker, LeAnn Rimes, Vince Gill and Tim McGraw, the latter in his first ever UK appearance.

Ensuing years grew both in duration, size and stature, as extra stages were added, hosted by BBC Radio 2 Country and Nashville’s revered Bluebird Café. The line-ups remained as star-studded as that debut outing, with some of country’s finest making the journey across the Atlantic, from The Chicks, Kacey Musgraves and Rascal Flatts to the Zac Brown Band, Reba McEntire and Dwight Yoakam.

Country To Country also earned a reputation for bringing over some of country’s most exciting rising stars, including Chris Stapleton, Margo Price and Lukas Nelson.

The 2020 C2C festival was first rescheduled to 2021 before being moved to March 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In September 2021, organisers of Country To Country announced that Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker and Luke Combs would headline the 2022 edition. Also named on the line-up were Kip Moore, Brett Young, Ashley McBryde, Russell Dickerson, Scotty McCreery, Flatland Cavalry, Runaway June and Hailey Whitters, with more to be announced. 

In addition to a new international series called Introducing Nashville, during which artists take to the main stage together for an acoustic set and the stories behind their tracks, organisers confirmed the C2C Spotlight Stage would return to London and Glasgow featuring Tenille Townes and Callista Clark.

About the festival, beloved presenter Bob Harris OBE said, “I am so proud to be part of the C2C family and have watched the festival grow to become one of the most important and iconic events in the global country music calendar. I can’t wait to listen to the best music in the world, enjoy the fantastic atmosphere of the main auditorium, catch the excitement of the pop-up stages and meet the incredible country fans that make C2C so special.”

Country To Country's 2022 headliners
Miranda Lambert – After rising to fame as a finalist on the 2003 series of Nashville Star, Miranda Lambert's 2005 sophomore album Kerosene went platinum. Since then she's become country music royalty having released seven consecutive No.1 albums as well as receiving three Grammy Awards and being the most decorated artist in the history of the Academy of Country Music. Lambert has even launched her own clothing and cowboy boot line.

Darius Rucker – Rucker sprang to fame as the frontman of record-breaking pop-rock band Hootie & The Blowfish, before embarking on an even more successful solo career in country music. His country album debut Learn To Live arrived in 2008 and went platinum. He has since achieved four No. 1 albums on the Billboard Country chart, with 2013's True Believers breaking into the top 90 on the UK albums chart.

The multi-platinum, award-winning artist dropped out of university and moved to Nashville to pursue a career in country music. It paid off with his debut single Hurricane from his debut album, 2017's This One's For You, topping country airplay charts and his sophomore album, 2019's What You See Is What You Get, being certified double platinum.
