Josh Turner and Kip Moore are among the acts confirmed in the first wave of artists for The Long Road 2019.

Josh Turner, who will be making his first ever UK appearance, says: “Playing The Long Road Festival has been a long time coming as my fans in the UK have been practically begging me to cross the big pond for years! I’m excited to finally be able to go over and play for my loyal, and patient, fans!”

They will be joined by the likes of Asleep At The Wheel, former Civil Wars member John Paul White, soulful Texan troubadour Charley Crockett, up-and-coming US five-piece LANCO, Nashville-based Country-Soul singer Sam Lewis, Americana duo The Cactus Blossoms, rising Country star Lainey Wilson, Southern Rock quartet The Steel Woods, LA-based vintage alt-Country singer Leslie Stevens and Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Rhiannon Giddens, as well as some of the leading UK Country, Americana and Roots artists including The Hanging Stars, CoCo and The Butterfields, Jake Morrell and Peter Bruntnell.

More acts will be announced in due course.

The Long Road’s Creative Director, Baylen Leonard says: “I couldn’t be more excited to share what we have in store for year two of The Long Road. After such a warm embrace by Country and Americana fans in year one, we got straight to work on the line-up and experience for this year and it promises to be even better. Top notch artists, hands on experiences, and great food, all in a world created just for music fans really is something special. I can’t wait for the gates to open.”
