Dawson Reigns, The Rising & Gary Quinn announce UK Tour in March

Present DAWSON REIGNS and THE RISING with GARY QUINN + Special Guests
See Dates March 22 - 31, 2017 below

2016 saw the British country scene grow not just steadily but it exploded. With Country2Country, Buckles & Boots and FSA Fest all seeing their audiences swell, the chart impact of record breaking acts Ward Thomas and The Shires has really seen the country sound break into mainstream.

As 2017 gets into flow, 2Country and Nashville Access in association with Full Circle Touring are proud to present a co-headline tour from two rising artists who made their own massive impacts of the British country scene over the last year.

Championed by Bob Harris (OBE), Baylen Leonard and Chris Country, Nashville based singer/songwriter Dawson Reigns kickstarted his UK campaign last year with the rock-tinged infectious radio hit Love Way All You, which was co-penned by The Shires tour-mate Canaan Smith. With his eponymous EP receiving glowing reviews and his brief UK tour in September alongside Holloway Road winning him an army of British fans, Dawson can’t wait to return to the UK.

Belfast based quintet The Rising launched their revamped line-up in 2016 with the stunning Last First Love. Having been holed up in the studio for the majority of the year, the group can’t wait to share their new songs with audiences as they build towards their sophomore album. With famous fans including Graham Norton, Gaby Roslin and Alex Lester, the group have opened for Ward Thomas, The Shires and Jess & The Bandits.

The Rising comprise: Chris Logan (Guitars, Banjo, Mandolin), Chantelle McAteer (Vocals), Brian Mellors (Bass Guitar), Shane Watters (Drums), Carla Crawford (Piano, Keys/Synth). They released latest single “Last First Love” (iTunes) in Sept 2016.
Back in August 2014 they released a debut 10-track album via Renegade Maverick Records titled COMING HOME (Amazon UK | iTunes | Spotify) The band recorded it in both Northern Ireland and Nashville, where they worked with Grammy winning engineers/producers including Hank Williams. Maverick magazine included a track from the album on a cover mount CD, lauding its “contemporary vibe, bubbling banjo undercurrents and guitar-driven arrangement reminiscent of one of Keith Urban's many hits”."
