+ Lindsay Ell + Walker McGuire
Entry Requirements: 14+ (Under 18's must be accompanied by an adult)
Country Music Week kicks off with a very special headline show from Randy Houser, performing in the UK for the first time.
RANDY HOUSER With an inimitable voice the New York Times describes as “wholly different, thicker and more throbbing, a cauldron bubbling over,” Randy Houser racked up three consecutive No. 1 hits and more than four million in singles sales to date with his Stoney Creek Records album, How Country Feels. He topped the charts with the title track, “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss” (also his first No. 1 as a songwriter) and earned critical acclaim for his powerful delivery of the Top 5 smash and CMA Song of the Year--‐nominated "Like A Cowboy."
Houser added a fourth No. 1 to his catalogue with “We Went” from his latest album, Fired Up, and has been tapped to perform at several major country music festivals in 2017.
LINDSAY ELL Named one of The Huffington Post’s “Top Country Artists to Watch”, Lindsay Ell is an accomplished musician, unique vocalist and songwriter. The young Calgary native learned to play guitar while traveling with her father to country-bluegrass camps as a young girl. Ell’s highly anticipated debut EP, Worth The Wait (produced by Kristian Bush of Sugarland), debuted at No. 8 on the Nielsen Soundscan Country Albums Chart.
WALKER McGUIRE Making their first appearance in the UK for CMW, Jordan Walker and Johnny McGuire take an opposites-attract approach to their music, fusing electrifying “brotherly” harmonies with a fresh new take on modern country. They met just days after moving to Nashville – Jordan, the “super country” guy, raised in Texas with a love for classics like Keith Whitley and Dan Seals; – Johnny, the quintessential “rootsy” guy, a Kansas City native schooled by left-of-centre icons like Tom Petty and John Prine. It was a yin-and-yang musical connection that fitted together like puzzle pieces and the duo Walker McGuire was born.
