UK Country superstars, The Shires, have become the first ever UK Country artists to win a prestigious CMA award.

The ‘Jeff Walker Global Artist Award’, which recognizes outstanding achievements by a Country Music Artist originally signed outside of the States – was presented to a surprised Ben and Crissie during the CMA songwriters series show.

Speaking of the achievement, The Shires stated: “We are completely thrilled to win the CMA Jeff Walker Global Artist Award. To win a CMA Award this early in our career and to be the first band from the UK to be acknowledged by the CMAs in this way is huge for us! Thank you to everyone who voted for us and Thank you to our fans who support our music and the UK Country movement.”
