    London loved seeing the CMA Songwriters, and all the big names who travelled across to play for UK fans. Country music is huge over here now,and the arena was sold out for all nights. Long may it continue, sharing the Country love.

  2. David Miller says:

    Every artist who comes to play in the UK, acknowledges just how awesome the reception they get, is, and how knowledgable and attentive we are to their music. This will, hopefully, encourage more and more American Country stars to visit these shores and to perform around the country.
