Three fast-rising American acts have been confirmed to play the official After Show Parties at the 2016 Country To Country (C2C) Festival at the Brooklyn Bowl venue within The 02 in London.
The events will take place following the conclusion of the main stage performances at C2C from 11-13 March, and will also feature current and classic country spun by DJ Baylen Leonard. First up, on 11 March, is Frankie Ballard, who’s had a mercurial rise on the country scene with three consecutive airplay No. 1s from his Sunshine & Whiskey album, ‘Helluva Life,’ the title track and ‘Young & Crazy.’ He’s on the charts now with ‘It All Started With A Beer,’ the first single from his upcoming album.
Old Dominion, who will play the 12 March After Show, have been widely-praised for their creative spin on modern country, as shown on their debut album Meat and Candy, released in November. It contains their No. 1 airplay hit ‘Break Up With Him’ and the current single ‘Snapback.’
Finally, on 13 March, southern rock/country prospects A Thousand Horses will take to the Brooklyn Bowl stage, fresh from their BBC Radio 2 playlist recognition with the single ‘The First Time.’ The Nashville quartet also have a No. 1 airplay hit to their name, ‘Smoke,’ taken from their debut album Southernality, released last June. Their sound is reminiscent of classic Rolling Stones or Lynyrd Skynyrd, at the point where classic rock meets modern country.
