Grammy Award-winning superstars Faith Hill and Tim McGraw have been announced as the first headliners for Country to Country (C2C) 2018 and will be bringing their highly acclaimed and record setting Soul2Soul Tour to this year’s event. The official C2C 2018 launch event will take place on Friday, October 6th at London Bush Hall with BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris exclusively unveiling the line-up.
Faith Hill and Tim McGraw have been dominating the music charts since the early 90’s. They began touring together in 1996 on McGraw’s Spontaneous Combustion tour. In 2000 they created the Soul2Soul franchise with their record-breaking Soul2Soul Tour, becoming that year’s top grossing and most successful U.S. tour. Their success continued in 2006-2007 when Soul2Soul II returned to the road, which was the most attended tour of the year in any musical genre and remains the highest grossing multi-year North American tour in country music history.
The pair will be joined by a whole host of multi-platinum and acclaimed artists across the weekend.
The launch event at Bush Hall is part Country Music Week’s New Country US Night featuring; Logan Brill, Temecula Road, Levi Hummon and Walker McGuire. Tickets are available online.
C2C is Europe’s biggest Country Music Festival. It brings three days of the best country music and programming with performances from the world’s best country stars as well as emerging talent from Nashville, UK and Europe. Country to Country is now entering its sixth year with ever increasing popularity and for the first time and due to popular demand, C2C Glasgow will take place at The SSE Hydro having out grown the Clyde Auditorium.
Showtime Networks will air a concert special called Tim & Faith: Soul2Soul on November 17th. The special was shot over the summer in the U.S. on this year’s Soul2Soul The World Tour. The tour documentary includes live performances from their Soul2Soul tour, as well as unprecedented access to the country superstar couple, with never before seen interviews and behind the scenes footage capturing their unmatched chemistry on and off the stage.
