C2C: Country to Country Day 3 main stage preview

The third and final day of C2C: Country to Country 2016 has arrived but there’s plenty of great music to enjoy before things come to an end for another year.

After two very packed days featuring the best Country music from the world’s hottest artists, things wind down today with another packed line-up on the C2C main stage. There are also two more acts performing on the Yamaha Music Stage so it’s sure to be a very enjoyable day.

Keep reading to find out the times and the details of the artists performing today…

Main stage

16.35 Andrew Combs

Perhaps one of the lesser known artists on the main stage, singer-songwriter Andrew Combs will be performing selections from his critically acclaimed album All These Dreams. If you’re not familiar with him then you should definitely check him out if you like more traditional Americana sounds with a hint of Roy Orbison.


17.40 Chris Stapleton

He may be a little camera shy but Chris Stapleton is emerging as one of the brightest new artists in Country music. Stapleton has enjoyed huge success as a songwriter for years but his debut album Traveller is catapulting him into the spotlight. Justin Timberlake is a fan and so are we!


18.55 Kacey Musgraves

Kacey Musgraves released her second album Pageant Material last year and it garnered a lot of praise from the critics. Part of the female charge that’s infiltrating the largely male dominated Country genre, Musgraves combines biting observational wit with autobiographical lyrics harking back to the true storytelling Country roots.


20.40 Eric Church

His first time headlining C2C, Eric Church is known as one of the bad boys of Country music. The singer-songwriter surprise released his latest album Mr. Misunderstood last year and it’s been a huge hit for him. The album recently got a physical release in the UK and his headline set tonight is one that his UK fans have been waiting for since C2C kicked off four years ago.


Yamaha Music Stage

17.20 Striking Matches

Striking Matches are perhaps best-known for their association with the TV show Nashville, for which they’ve written many songs. They released their debut album Nothing But the Silence last year and they’ve been building an impressive fan base here in the UK. They will be in their element with an acoustic set.


18.35 Frankie Ballard

Frankie Ballard is heading towards the release of his second album, the first taster of which is It All Started With a Beer. Ballard’s album Sunshine & Whiskey was recently released in the UK and fans can expect a mix of songs old and new today.


C2C: Country to Country takes place this weekend (Friday 11th – Sunday 13th March) at The O2 Arena in London. For more information head over to www.c2c-countrytocountry.com
