This page is the primary blog category for the website. You will find news, reviews, blogs and articles For British Country Music. We will also feature The British Americana music scene.

We shall mainly feature music artists and songwriters born or living in the UK.

Undoubtedly, America and Nashville are the epicentres for Country Music. However, country music in the UK has had a niche following for many years. There is now a quickly growing ground swell of love.

The British Country Music Festival embraces that community. So you may be a super fan or just noticing the fantastic songwriting and musicians we have in the UK.

There are a handful of breakthrough artists, including The Shires, Ward Thomas, Wandering Hearts, The Staves, Catherine McGrath and WildwoodKin. But there are new artists and songwriters making waves about to break through. With a whole ecosystem supporting them. With exciting new festivals, gigs, venues, record companies and fans supporting them.

Our genre is so close to becoming mainstream that national radio stations are playing more country music. Subsequently, mainstream artists are starting to make Country and Americana-sounding tracks.

For social media, we will use the hashtag #UKcountrymusic to promote this category.

Examples of what posts to expect in this category include A GREAT YEAR FOR BRITISH COUNTRY MUSIC and YOLA v HOOTENANNY.

The category and festival are all about supporting new talent and acts. The class will feature news and releases from new bands and singers, for example, Raintown, Dexeter, Laura Oakes, Sasha McVeigh and Holloway Road.
