Yes, Sunday looks interesting. It's be good to see Sam Outlaw again. Is this a ticketed thing?

Kevin McGuire - Glasgow's answer to Sam Hunt :lol: Not a ringing endorsement!!

Raintown - Glasgow's answer to Lady Antebellum a second ringing endorsement for you Kev :?: .

Nashville Meets London is co-produced by Peter Conway Management and that is who Raintown signed with a few years back which explains why they are back on the Nashville Meets London bill.
I saw Raintown for the first time at C2C2017. They certainly have a hardcore loyal following of fans. After Raintown's energetic 30min set (which was more rock than country) Building Six emptied out with people not seemingly what to stay on for another Scottish act Lisa McHugh.
Raintown who have won just about every high profile UK country award going just haven't made the BIG breakthrough they were looking for. In three unchallenged interviews with UK Country Radio.com and BBC Radio Essex/Norfolk/Cambridge they told Allan Watkiss and Steve Cherelle they wanted to reach the very top winning CMA awards ( later years retreating to saying at least being considered for CMA Awards), they wanted to tour in Europe and play in Australia. They have not to date being able to achieve this through Peter Conway Management. To my knowledge they haven't ever been included on a first round CMA ballot and probably the vast majority of CMA members know little about them.

They have received critical acclaim from radio (Bob Harris, Keith Greentree etc Chris Stevens, Chris Country Radio said: WRITING ON THE WALL, IS ONE OF 2015'S FINEST COUNTRY ALBUMS, AND HOW EXCITING THAT IT'S FROM THE UK....THEY'RE SIMPLY EXCELLENT”.

Raintown had a deserved #1 on Hotdisc with the radio edit for "Nineteen" and got glowing 5 STAR album reviews from Country Music People (Chris Smith, a Raintown Pledge funder) and Maverick. They have yet to appear on the Official UK Country Album chart and the highest they got on UK iTunes Country was #11.
None of this is going to get you noticed by the CMA and staying in Glasgow is never going to work. If the winning CMA Awards "dream" claim is to be fullflled they simply have to relocate to Nashville and why hasn't a label like Decca UK or Sony UK signed them up choosing instead to sign the more marketable English acts.

Chris Country Radio should be there (mopping up more listeners) so you will able to tell Chris Stevens how much you are enjoying the Station in London on glorious DAB!
Then again....... maybe not . Will London's Country Clive get a photo taken with the "famed" shield?

Kevin McGuire - Glasgow's answer to Sam Hunt ... OK, so why the American accent? Horrible!! Glasgow is welcome to him!! Nicola Sturgeon could use him as a lever to get independence ... I think we'd all be happy to see him go!!
