US-based country singer/songwriter Callaghan is ready to take the UK by storm next year thanks to the release of her brand new LP ‘Callaghan’s Acoustic Coffee House 2’ which will drop on January 31st and will be supported by a headline tour across the country throughout April.
Speaking about returning to Britain and her new music project, the impressive vocalist said: “I can’t wait to get back on the road in the UK and get this new music out there. After almost 10 years in the USA I’m planning to spend the first half of 2020 in the UK writing, touring and catching up with friends and family. I’m really excited to be coming home for a while!”
Callaghan’s forthcoming Spring Tour will stretch from Maidstone to Glasgow and includes an eagerly anticipated gig at London’s St Pancras Old Church and a home-town show at Lincoln’s Drill Hall. The string of dates will support the upcoming album and is titled The Million Mile Tour. Talking about the upcoming shows, the Brit singer said: “I realised that sometime in 2020 I will hit half a million miles of touring since I moved to the US in 2010. My car just quit at 440,000 miles, but I’m not nearly done playing my songs yet, so let’s aim to reach a million miles in the next few years”.
Eight tracks on the new album were recorded as a live session in the home of country music; Nashville earlier this year. The record includes stripped back versions of Callaghan’s original songs and some of her favourite tracks by other artists. Callaghan was inspired to record her version of James Taylor’s Fire & Rain after meeting the star when they both performed at the British Summer Time Festival in London’s Hyde Park back in the summer of 2018. Earlier this year she also participated in the Buddy Holly Education Foundation’s songwriting retreat in Buddy’s hometown of Lubbock Texas. Buddy’s iconic song Raining in My Heart is another of the covers Callaghan chose for the album.
The LP will be teased with the release of an EP this coming Friday, November 15th ahead of the full-length project dropping in the New Year.
