The Shires – Stoke on Trent – POSTPONED DUE TO COVID19
November 26, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm£33.90
The Shires, who formed in 2013, are a UK country pop duo composed of singer-songwriters Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes.
They are the biggest selling UK country act of all time, they first entered the history books in 2015, when their debut album Brave became the first ever British country album to enter the UK Top Ten. Their second album My Universe also broke new ground by becoming the fastest-selling British country album of all time and reached the top three in the UK chart.
They hail from the neighbouring counties of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, and named themselves The Shires in order to maintain a British identity and take a small part of the United Kingdom back to the United States. Not long after their inception, they secured a contract with American record label Universal Music Group Nashville, and so became the first ever UK country act to be signed to a major Nashville label.
With two gold certified albums under their belt and 9 playlisted tracks across BBC Music, The Shires are back and they’re raring to go.
