The 7 Country Acts We Need to Tour the UK This Year! – Laura Klonowski

The 7 Country Acts We Need to Tour the UK This Year!

2018 is set to be a massive year for country music, with the UK being a huge player in the market. We have some amazing artists performing live over here this year including Shania Twain, and Sarah Darling but there are still some acts we are waiting for to announce UK tours.

Here are the 7 country acts we want to see tour the UK sometime in 2018.

Ward Thomas

We just love the sibling harmonies of Catherine and Lizzy and the fact that they will be releasing a new album very soon makes us so excited that a new tour is just around the corner. We are expected to have confirmation of a 2018 Ward Thomas tour in the coming months and we can’t wait to book our tickets.

Lady Antebellum

Lady Antebellum had a hugely successful 2017 and 2018 is set to be even better. The US trio have confirmed on Twitter that they will be touring later this year and we just hope that the UK is included on that long list of tour dates. We loved seeing them live over here last year so this is a must see country tour this year.

The Shires

We adore The Shires and we know that new music from Ben and Crissie is just around the corner meaning a UK tour announcement is imminent. They have confirmed on social media that 2018 will see them touring so we are ready and waiting to book tickets for one of the best live bands on the circuit.

Una Healy

We have loved the country tones of Una Healy since she launched her solo career last year and we have been patiently waiting for the former Saturdays singer to announce a UK tour ever since. And with a new album on the horizon we are hoping that 2018 will be the year she completes a full headlining tour of the UK.

Danielle Bradbery

Last year saw Danielle Bradbery become a household name in the country genre with the release of her second album ‘I Don’t Believe We’ve Met’. The songstress who first found fame in 2013 when she won The Voice US is set to have a huge 2018 and we hope that includes an extensive UK tour.

Carly Pearce

Carly Pearce is one of the most exciting new country acts around and we have all fallen in love with the US sensations stunning vocals. We have taken her debut single ‘Every Little Thing’ to our hearts and the hitmaker has confirmed she will be hitting the road this year. We just hope that there a are a few UK stops included.


Carolynne had a super busy 2017 what with the release of new music and also becoming a mother for the first time. And we hope that 2018 will see the singer releasing new materiel and most importantly touring. We would love to see her headlining a number of UK shows this year.
