The Rising Better Than This 

A review of the new release from  The Rising Better Than This:

“This is a country song that would sound perfectly at home on BBC Radio 2’s playlist (you read it here first), crossing over to appeal to a mainstream audience very smoothly from their country-rock roots.

With a catchy hook and a foot-tapping beat, this is a track that the festival audiences will be singing in their droves.”

Martin Blore, The British Country Music Festival (TBCMF)

 Update: The Rising will be performing at The British Country Music Festival in Sept 2022
