Speaking on BBC Breakfast TV earlier this week The Shires commented on how much more nervous they were about playing at the Grand Ole Opry than playing Glastonbury later this year and that being British has affected their success in Nashville. “They love it. Being British it’s definitely a talking point, but I think what’s great about Nashville, is when you get in a room and start writing the differences go out the window and there is a mutual respect.” say Ben Earle.
The British country duo, are the only British country band to ever have a hit album in the UK! “Country music has evolved so much since the Rhinestones, Stetson’s and cowboy boots. I urge everyone to listen to the sound of new country.” stated Crissie Rhodes.
This week a Twitter campaign was launched to get The Shires debut album ‘Brave‘ back in the top 10 of the UK album chart – to get involved tweet #UKCountry4top10
