The Country Music Association has announced its new international artist-focused touring series, aptly titled Introducing Nashville, which launches in March of 2019 in Australia and New Zealand featuring Brandy ClarkDevin DawsonLindsay Ell and Tenille Townes (Australia leg only) followed by an industry event in Tokyo, Japan including Frankie Ballard. Tickets for Australia and New Zealand are on sale here.

As part of CMA’s mission to support the expansion of Country Music around the globe, Introducing Nashville will provide a platform to introduce exciting current artists to international audiences for the first time. Each tour stop will replicate a Nashville writer’s round, with artists appearing on stage together in an acoustic lineup, introducing their songs and talking about their careers and personal stories. As international touring opportunities and global streaming continues to grow for Country artists,

CMA will continue to use strategic research and tactics in an effort to bring Country artists to fans in foreign territories eager to discover and learn more about the Country genre. Introducing Nashville builds on the remarkable response CMA has seen with artists presented alongside hit songwriters during international tours of the CMA Songwriters Series. Since 2012, CMA has invited more than 40 songwriters and artists overseas to familiarize audiences with the breadth and rich heritage of the Country genre. The CMA Songwriters Series will continue to present songwriters to international fans with a focus on the importance of the craft of songwriting.  

“We are excited to invest in artists who are building international careers and to help place them in front of fans in multiple cities who seldom experience Nashville artists live,” said Milly Olykan, CMA Vice President, International Relations and Development. “Launching the first Introducing Nashville tour with these distinct artists, each of which occupy such different lanes musically, illustrates the broad range of sounds coming out of Nashville and the Country genre.”
