CMA announces ‘Introducing Nashville’ for C2C Berlin, Amsterdam

Lindsay Ell, Lauren Jenkins and Logan Mize to Perform

The Country Music Association’s (CMA) new international artist-focused touring series, Introducing Nashville, will join the C2C lineup in Berlin and Amsterdam. Lindsay Ell, Lauren Jenkins and Logan Mize will open the first C2C Berlin at the Verti Arena Berlin with a mainstage performance on Saturday, March 2nd and follow up with a performance as part of C2C Amsterdam at AFAS Amsterdam on Monday, March 4th. Following the stops in Germany and the Netherlands, a second Introducing Nashville lineup will visit multiple cities in Australia, as well as Auckland, New Zealand and Tokyo, Japan. Tickets for C2C Berlin and C2C Amsterdam dates are available.

“It’s our pleasure to introduce this excellent lineup of artists to European fans and bring a little piece of Nashville into the heart of these great cities,” says Milly Olykan, CMA Vice President, International Relations and Development. “CMA has been a proud partner of C2C U.K. since it launched in 2014, and we are encouraged by international expansion and the platform it offers artists who are looking to build audiences outside of North America, as well as to fans as they look to discover current Nashville artists. CMA is committed to supporting our industry as it develops Country markets in Europe, as previous CMA tours into these cities have revealed passionate and appreciative fans. We’re looking forward to seeing the impact C2C has in Germany and the Netherlands, and the response to this lineup of Introducing Nashville.”

In an effort to support CMA’s mission of expanding country music worldwide, Introducing Nashville provides a platform to introduce artists to new audiences around the globe. The touring series brings the unique Nashville-style songwriter’s round to each city, with artists appearing on stage together in an acoustic lineup, introducing their songs and sharing highlights of their careers and personal stories. Introducing Nashville builds on the remarkable response CMA has seen with artists presented alongside hit songwriters during international tours of the CMA Songwriters Series.
