July/August Featured Fan

Many hardcore Country Music fans will already know our next featured fan but for those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of his company yet at a gig, pre-gig or after-show party, please take a bow, Paul McInnes….

Name: 

Paul McInnes 

When did you discover your love of country music?  

I liked the classics when I was young but I got properly into it from 2005 when my uncle played me Two People Fell In Love by Brad Paisley and it exploded for me to a life changing degree after C2C 2014. 

Who is your favourite artist/band? 

Brad Paisley. 

If you had to choose one song – what would your favourite be? 

Today by Brad Paisley.  It was my wedding song but the greatest song of all time in my opinion is Friends In Low Places. 

What’s the best live gig you’ve attended? 

Brad Paisley at the O2 in 2011, supported by Darius Rucker.

Where is the furthest you’ve travelled for a concert?

Scotland to London.

How do you listen to music – Vinyl/CD or streaming?   

Streaming.

How do you discover new music and artists? 

For the most part, I listen to the acts that are announced for C2C or are playing gigs in the UK.

What’s your must have item of merchandise? 

I love my Eric Church cap.

What are you listening to right now?

Joe Nichols in preparation for his September gig (very excited about that one).

If your life was a country song, what would it be called?

I’m Pretty Good At Drinking Beer.

How do you try to encourage the Country Music Revolution to non-country fans?

I generally don’t but if I ever do, I play them Beautiful Drug by ZBB, Take Your Time by Sam Hunt and The Outsiders by Eric Church to show people the broad church country music covers these days.

What is the best thing to have come out of your love of country music?

Meeting loads of new friends through the Attendees (C2C) group and the subsequent formation of the Scottish Country Mafia.  Also, being able to share all my experiences with my wife is awesome.

THE SPECIAL QUESTION:
Why should you be our overall fan of the year?

 I’d never nominate myself for such an award but I think what separates me from other ‘well known’ people within the various groups is that I’m happy to be just a fan.  I don’t want to be an industry insider.  I don’t want to meet the artists, interview the artists, write reviews or get involved in that side of things.  I just want to go to gigs and sing my heart out to all the songs and keep the artists on a pedestal.

My best quality as a fan is probably my ability to bring people together. I like that side of things, ie being a bit of a social convener and giving people on their own a recognisable face that they can approach to be introduced to others.  That makes me happy.

 

 

April/May Featured Fan

You may have noticed we’ve skipped a month! March has been so busy (including C2C) so we’ve got Easter out of the way and want to introduce you to our new, very deserving and dedicated Featured Fans… 

Name(s): 

Daniel Fitch & David Tomas from Madrid, Spain.

When did you discover your love of country music? 

Daniel: Back in 2007 on my very first trip to the US, I hired a car in Florida and was travelling from Miami to Orlando. The car had satellite radio installed on it and the first radio preset was ‘The Highway’. I started to listen to the tunes and they really had me going. It was love at first ‘rent’! 

David: In 2013 at the first ever C2C. Even though I was already a fan of Brad Paisley and Lady Antebellum, I was not a huge country fan yet. Daniel was, and he convinced me to go with him to London. For work reasons I was only available to go on the Saturday and Daniel was there for both days and was sorry I had to go, but I fell in love with country music because of Tim McGraw and Little Big Town that Saturday. To this day, that Sunday is the only day I’ve missed in all 7 C2C festivals.

Who is your favourite artist/band?

Daniel: Brad Paisley. He was my very first concert in the US. I used to travel from Spain to America with a couple of friends but no-one was feeling my vibe so I decided to do it my way. I bought tickets thanks to Ticketmaster in 2011 and had my very first Brad gig in Tampa. I couldn’t believe the magic Brad was displaying with his guitar, and if I wasn’t convinced that he was my favourite artist, that concert was proof that no other artist could ever compare.

David: I have a serious problem in choosing just one. I think it depends on the moment. Lady Antebellum and Brad Paisley have been my favourites for years. Luke Bryan and Dierks are good to cheer me up, Eric Church and Ashley McBryde for the tough days and of course, Old Dominion. I have followed them from the beginning and feel a special affection for this band.

If you had to choose one song – what would your favourite be?

Daniel: That would be ‘Alright’ by Darius Rucker. Why? Because it means a simple life, nothing matters more apart from having a roof over your head, someone who cares about you and the fact that everything’s going to be alright. If I close my eyes, I imagine myself living in the middle of nowhere in North Carolina with nothing to do other than wasting my time, riding my pick-up truck through a two-lane road.  

David: ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ by Luke Bryan. It’s a song that always makes me happy.

What’s the best live gig you’ve attended? 

Daniel: I’ve had two in my life, very similar experiences; Brad was my first gig and later Eric Church at the 2016 C2C festival. Tears of excitement  were rolling down my face, what a show! It was unforgettable in every single way. From ‘not my cuppa tea’ and then going ‘to infinity and beyond’ with him. That’s the power of country music. 

David: Kenny Chesney in New Jersey, August 2018 with Old Dominion and Thomas Rhett opening for him. It was special as I didn’t think I’d be able to see Kenny this side of the Atlantic as there was a huge thunderstorm and the concert was delayed for 2 hours and almost called off. We got lucky as the storm died down at almost midnight and Kenny did the whole thing, thank God! Also, a special mention to Tim & Faith headlining C2C in 2018. Tim asked us to lend him our Spanish flag when he was singing ‘Felt Good On My Lips’, a song dedicated to our country – it was so symbolic.

Where is the furthest you’ve travelled for a concert?

Daniel: I have been to several shows across the US. One of the first items on my bucket list is to travel to Hawaii and attend a show there, but until then the furthest I’ve been is Chicago in 2012 when I saw Thompson Square and Darius Rucker open for Lady Antebellum at the Allstate Arena. On my own, but worth every single dime spent on that ticket.

David: Not counting the trip to Nashville and a Grand Ole Opry soiree, I believe it was Saratoga Springs, New York for Luke Bryan (I also won a meet & greet with Luke!). I also saw Toby Keith in Pennsylvania on the same trip.

How do you listen to music – Vinyl/CD or streaming?   

Daniel: Radio, for sure. The best way to get the the whole country experience. Don’t tell anyone, but since that magical 2007 trip across Florida, I had to have that SiriusXM radio back in Spain. I discovered that they were broadcasting the Highway channel across the internet, so I opened an account in the US and made a subscription. It’s working like a charm here! These days, I also have my very own radio here in Spain. David and I released an Internet Radio called Carretera y Country Radio and it’s getting popular these days. I love to know that people in my country are discovering the artists I love because of me.

David: Streaming. Without things like Spotify or Apple Music I wouldn’t be such a country fan now. I also listen to American radio stations, Chris Country and the radio station that Dani has created along with our friend Nacho and me; Carretera & Country Radio. 

How do you discover new music and artists? 

Daniel: I mentioned SiriusXM the Highway before. They have a show called ‘On The Horizon’ that plays most of the new artists who would never make it to traditional country radio, and thanks to the calls from listeners, they make it big. Florida Georgia Line is one huge example of this with ‘Highway Finds’. Look for ‘How Satellite Radio is Breaking Country’s Next Big Stars’ and you’ll find an amazing story about new discoveries.

David: On the radio, Country related websites and the C2C Attendees Facebook group.

What’s your must have item of merchandise? 

Daniel: It’s the C2C mug. David and I travelled every single year to London for the festival – we never missed one, nor the mug! Also #1BCF related stuff. 

David: It’s not from an artist but mine is the C2C Attendees badge that our friends Sue & Darren gave us. Also my #1BCF wristband that friends Sally & Andrew gave us.

What are you listening to right now?

Daniel: Y2Country. It’s another channel from SiriusXM, dedicated to the first decade of the 2000s. They play all the songs I love.

David: After C2C 2019, I am listening to many artists like Travis Denning, Craig Campbell and the James Barker Band.

If your life was a country song, what would it be called?

Daniel: Friends in High Places! Because of country music I love to travel, heading north and flying way up high as my friends are in the UK. I couldn’t be more proud of my ‘One Big Country Family’ that we made here and I treasure these people the most.

David: Spainsteen – a ripoff cover sung by Eric Church! It’s not because I’m a fan of Bruce & Eric, but because he talks about the importance of music in our lives and the place we live in which matters. Everything revolves around music in my life lately. Thanks to the music and the group of Facebook Attendees, I have met several of the best friends I could ever have. There’s a huge connection between Spain and the UK and I would never have imagined before that I would have friends in Norwich, Wales and close to Glastonbury!

How do you try to encourage the Country Music Revolution to non-country fans?

Daniel: Since the minute we both decided to do the same thing as the UK is doing now (we’re basically jealous of the big leap that the UK Country scene is making right now!), we placed our heart, souls and wallets into our Carretera y Country project, to huge success if I’m honest. Since then, a country record label has been created, lots of new bands have arrived on the Spanish scene and we now have our very own country festival in Spain called Huercasa Country Festival.

David: In recent times, I have turned several non-country fans because I played (loud and proud!), songs by Ashley McBryde and they seemed to like them a lot! I wish that someone was able to do something in Spain similar to the C2C After-parties or Nashville Sounds Party at Manchester’s Coyote Ugly. I’m sure that would convert more and more people.

THE SPECIAL QUESTION:
Why should you be our overall fan of the year?

Daniel: Do you know how hard it is to be a country fan in Spain? Nothing is available, not a single country radio station. I’m doing my best to change all that with my own money. Investing and losing dough to educate people to believe that Country Music ain’t just Billy Ray Cyrus and Line Dance kinda stuff.

David: Difficult question. The other fans are very good and they deserve it too. In our case, it may be due to the difficulty to go to concerts and our travel far away from home due to the small amounts of gigs here in Spain.

Check out Daniel & David’s radio station and website over at www.carreteraycountry.com – keep up the good work guys and we’ll see you at a UK gig soon!

 

January/February Featured Fan

Name:

Keely B 

When did you discover your love of country music?

Well, The Eagles was always on a loop growing up, then when I was 18 and went to America to be a nanny I discovered country music in a whole new way. I remember standing in this country bar stunned by everyone line dancing, thinking ‘I should have been born an American’…

Who is your favourite artist/band?

Old Dominion! Braaaaaaaaaaaaaaad!!!!!!

If you had to choose one song – what would your favourite be?

Lord this is really hard! If we class The Eagles as country (its controversial I know), then I would say Hotel California…

What’s the best live gig you’ve attended?

I am really struggling here but I would have to say when I took my mum to see Little Big Town, her favourite band. As she is partially deaf she finds it hard to hear the words but with Girl Crush she learnt every word. I will never forget looking round seeing her singing, just beautiful.

Where is the furthest you’ve travelled for a concert?

America, my first time was amazing!!  

How do you listen to music – Vinyl/CD or streaming?

Spotify.

How do you discover new music and artists?

Friends might suggest something or I will see new artists on the Facebook C2C Attendees site.

What’s your must have item of merchandise?

My hoodies!! God I love them. I have a massive collection now. My most treasured is my ‘Carrot Seed’ book signed by Matt from Old Dominion, very lush.

What are you listening to right now?

I am getting ready for the Country2Country Festival at the O2 so I am listening to everyone I don’t know so well. At the moment I have Dustin Lynch on – he’s very cool. I can’t wait to see a proper cowboy on stage!!

If your life was a country song, what would it be called?

She really should have married a cowboy by now…

THE SPECIAL QUESTION:
Why should you be our overall fan of the year?

I am one of the most dedicated fans there is, going all the way to America to see Old Dominion. Then when they come over here, going to every single gig, queueing for hours for each one so I can be right at the front. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for those boys!

 

 

 

November/December Featured Fan

Name:
Helen Askey

Job Title:
Coach, trainer and all round good egg.

When did you discover your love of country music?
Years ago Chris Evans was talking about this event at the O2 called Country to Country and I thought that sounded fun. We were hooked. The music, the atmosphere and the people. Meeting so many people that I am chuffed to call friends now (goodness knows what they call me!).

Who is your favourite artist/band?
Drake White, Chris Stapleton, Brothers Osborne, Dierks Bentley, Garth Brooks, Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert. Old Dominion (I can never chose dessert either).

If you had to choose one song – what would your favourite be?
Free by Drake White
21 Summer Brothers Osborne
Friends in Low Places – the memory of Singing this at Mary Dopson-Taylor’s wedding, singing it in the car after a busy day, and screaming it at the top of my voice when Garth came on stage at CMA Fest last year.
Or Heroes by David Bowie (erm, Helen, that’s more than one….!!)

What’s the best live gig you’ve attended?
Drake White at the Borderline, Old Dominion in Brum last month
David Bowie at the Milton Keynes Bowl

Where is the furthest you’ve travelled for a concert?
Nashville – we went to CMA fest in 2017 which was a crazy and great experience. Seeing so many great people play, the atmosphere and the unexpected delights such as a pop up gig by Blake Shelton which was just awesome.

How do you listen to music – Vinyl/CD or streaming?
Good old itunes.

How do you discover new music and artists?
Facebook recommendations from chums

What’s your must have item of merchandise?

If your life was a country song, what would it be called?
I need Real – it has been a crazy few months work wise so some down time is needed.

THE SPECIAL QUESTION:
Why should you be our overall fan of the year?

I am happy not to be. I just love our country scene – the people, the music and the joy it gives me. The country music gang are so special, we look out for each other. I love it.. and the chance I get to wear my boots!

October Featured Fan

Name:
Mary Dopson-Taylor

Job Title:
Customer Service Director by day. General wannabe Redneck woman after 5.31pm.

When did you discover your love of country music?
Like many of us, I grew up on Country music in the background. Dad always played old traditional vinyl such as Glen Campbell & John Denver, but it’s only in recent years I learned to really appreciate the classics. My trigger point to the current obsession or addiction if you will, would stem from watching CMA awards late at night when I lived alone. I remember distinctly watching Sara Evans perform “Born to Fly” and Alan Jackson “Where were You” on 2001 award show. That was it. I discovered the dark and remote Country section of my local HMV and dusted off everything I could find by these artists. Attending the International Festival of Country Music in Wembley in 2012 was a real introduction to live Country Music, I was hooked. C2C began the following year and the rest is history.

Who is your favourite artist/band?
So many to choose from but for consistency I would have to say Darius Rucker and Zac Brown Band. Both of whom I will be seeing live in the UK within the same week, with my non-Country husband. Can’t be bad!

If you had to choose one song – what would your favourite be?
That’s a cruel question but I guess it has to be “This” by Darius Rucker as it’s our Wedding song and means a lot to my husband and I.

What’s the best live gig you’ve attended?
I need to say Michael Jackson’s Wembley gigs in the 80’s. No one will ever out- perform Michael, Country or otherwise. Best live group I would have to say is Zac Brown Band.

Where is the furthest you’ve travelled for a concert?
I went to Germany to see Elton John but we were staying with friends, it wasn’t just for the gig. I guess Sheffield for Dolly Parton. Only a 2 hour drive but it was the day I flew home from Florida. That was a long day but she was worth every mile! I took my Dad.

How do you listen to music – Vinyl/CD or streaming?
I do like physical CD’s but also download many songs from ITunes onto my IPOD for the car as I travel a lot for work. Still trying to get my head around the likes of Spotify etc.

How do you discover new music and artists?
Mainly through the C2C Attendees Facebook group and seeing new artists at C2C Festival.

What’s your must have item of merchandise?
I have gone rather overboard on tee shirts in recent years which are mainly unflattering “wear in bed” purchases whilst under the influence of a few JD’s. I will be more picky in future and opt for decent ladies style, v-neck fitted tops……I promise! I’d prefer to be able to buy fridge magnets or pin badges.

What are you listening to right now?
Ashley McBride and Luke Combs in the car this week to warm myself up for the gig at the Institute Birmingham. Its actually my favourite venue. Small intimate and good memories of appearing with Kip and his video “That was Us” down the back streets!

If your life was a country song, what would it be called?
Out of my heels, Into my boots, I’m Country Strong!

THE SPECIAL QUESTION:
Why should you be our overall fan of the year?
I feel my drive for recruitment to the cause has been second to none. Starting with my non -Country husband who now owns a Stetson and Boots, albeit drunken purchases. Our wedding (which the very lovely & talented Amy Westney played a set at), was attended by both believers and non-believers, and resulted in a dance floor full of folks oblivious to the genre they were strutting their stuff too.

I love Country music to my core and understand that being “Country” isn’t just about the music – it’s a feeling only the Country Family understand. Friends made via Facebook discussions around music and sharing personal highs and lows really does bond us – there’s a Country song right there!

I am also committed to stalking/hanging around tour buses after a show, regardless of the late hour, even on school nights . This has to be worth a bonus point or two!!

 

 

 

 

 

August/September Featured Fans

We’re kicking off with a double feature this month, husband & wife country couple – David & Denise Parcell from Cambridgeshire.

 

Name & County:

David Parcell, Cambridgeshire.

Job Title:

Group Accountant at Cambridgeshire County Council.

When did you discover your love of country music?

It took some time for me to get into country music, Denise had discovered Garth Brooks in the early 90s and was more into him than me. I liked all sorts of music probably starting off with groups like the Police, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Rick Wakeman and Abba. Also liked a lot of soul including Rose Royce, the Whispers and Hall & Oates. I always remember in 1997, Denise buying 2 country CDs in Florida and I quite liked them, these being Regina Regina (loved that album, what ever happened to them) and Mindy McCready. I don’t think it was until 2000, we went to Dallas to stay with some English friends and they lent us their old car to do a 10 hour journey down to South Padre Island – the only problem was the radio didn’t work and they lent us 2 CDs; Steve Wariner’s 2 teardrops and Tim McGraw’s ‘A place in Sun’ – by the time I was back in Dallas, I was hooked and purchased those 2 albums as I loved them.

 

Who’s your favourite artist/band?

This is hard question as so many good artists and it probably changes as to what mood I’m in. Currently I would have to say my favourite is Little Big Town (not that Karen Fairchild swings it for me at all!!) and my claim to fame is that I was the first one to review any of their albums on Amazon.co.uk in 2006 (pretty crap review and I never do reviews!).

If you had to choose one song – what would your favourite be?

Another hard question, as so many!! I will have to say ‘Drink a Beer’ by Luke Bryan.

What’s the best live gig you’ve attended?

So many excellent gigs, not sure there is a poor country gig! Will have to say my favourite was Little Big Town at the Royal Albert Hall last October. We had already seen them in Birmingham and weren’t planning to go but met Mark in Manchester for the Kip concert and he offered us 2 front row tickets for LBT, how could we turn those down! You were literally right next to the stage and got to shake hands with all the band. This was our 4th concert out of 6 in 6 nights!!

Where is the furthest you’ve travelled for a concert?

Luckily, we can get to London in an hour, so most of our gigs are there, but we have taken the opportunity when in Dallas to see Rascal Flatts with Blake Shelton supporting, and then the following year Toby Keith supported by Miranda Lambert. At the time Denise didn’t have a small camera and they were strict on taking cameras in, so no photos! We also stayed with some American friends in Wisconsin who can’t stand country music (weird!), but we took the opportunity to see Luke Bryan at Summerfest in Milwaukee. However, we could have gone to see Kenny Chesney in concert – his support was Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town and Old Dominion, but we thought we had better see our friends!!

How do you listen to music – Vinyl/CD or streaming?

I’m old, so have had the records, CDs and now use Spotify. I still like to get CDs but only play them in the car.

How do you discover new music and artists?

So many artists and it’s finding time to listen to them. Obviously the C2C attendees Facebook group is excellent for people sharing new acts. I also love the SCM (Scottish Country Mafia) artist of the week, as it gives you some artists you don’t know or ones you haven’t listened to in a while – excellent idea.

What’s your must have item of merchandise?

For me it must be a t-shirt, but also liked getting a signed cd.

What are you listening to right now?

Everything! I tend to listen to acts that I’m about to see soon or if someone has just released an album. One that has been played a fair few times recently is Vaquero by Aaron Watson.

If your life was a country song, what would it be called?

My bike needs another beer!

THE SPECIAL QUESTION! Why should you be our overall fan of the year?

I had to see Kip Moore 5 times in the last 12 months as my wife is infatuated with him! I think I deserve a medal for being so understanding!!

Name & County:

Denise Parcell, Cambridgeshire

 Job Title:

Senior Admin & Finance Officer, although I spent the first 31 years of my working life as a Payroll Officer until I was put under risk of redundancy & had to change jobs.

 When did you discover your love of country music?

It started properly in 1999 when we first went to Dallas on holiday to visit friends.  (An Irish friend had introduced me to Garth Brooks – music not the man himself unfortunately!  I also liked Shania Twain) So when we got there and our friends were watching the country music channel on TV and the car radio was tuned to country music – it just all escalated from that. In those days you could go into Walmart and listen to CD’s before you bought them, so we expanded our country music knowledge that way.

 Who’s your favourite artist/band?

Kip Moore is my favourite artist, although there are quite a few close seconds, but it is always his CD’s I go to as my fall-back choice of music.

 If you had to choose one song – what would your favourite be?

This is hard as I love a lot of songs and it does depend what mood I’m in as to what my current favourite is, but I always love to hear Garth Brooks – Friends in Low Places. Sorry if that is a bit obvious or not very inventive.

 What’s the best live gig you’ve attended?

Not country but I always said Take That – The Circus tour at Wembley was the best I’d ever been to, and then I went to see Barry Manilow and it was like one big party and I thought that was great too. Keeping it Country, it would be Little Big Town at the Royal Albert Hall – a friend from C2C Attendees Facebook group very kindly offered us two front row tickets at the last minute which we couldn’t refuse to buy – and it was just amazing.  The whole experience made it the best Country gig ever – sorry Kip!  The excitement of being front row and being able to shake the bands hands as they were performing; having our friends wave at us who were scattered around the venue when they saw us get handshakes; the dancing; and then to top it all the vocals, music and personality of Little Big Town was indescribable. I just smiled, laughed and sang all night.

 Where is the furthest you’ve travelled for a concert?  

We’ve been to 3 concerts in Dallas whilst on holiday, if that counts; Rascal Flatts, Toby Keith and Jo Dee Messina.  The support acts were people we hadn’t heard of – Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert!  We also saw Luke Bryan at Summerfest in Milwaukee, but if you are talking about just going to a concert for no other reason, then we are heading to Glasgow in December to see Midland.

 How do you listen to music – Vinyl/CD or streaming?

Streaming whilst at home and CD’s in the car.

 How do you discover new music and artists?

Listening to Country Radio stations or via friends on the C2C Attendees Facebook group who post when they discover someone new. Plus, David is good at knowing who is new on the scene so I can get a bit lazy and wait for him to tell me!

 What’s your must have item of merchandise?

I don’t tend to buy much merch as the t-shirts aren’t normally designed for ladies, but if there are slim fit ones or V-necks then I always tend to buy one.  I do like to collect guitar pics though and I also have a couple of drumsticks.  One from Kip – which he signed and the other from Little Big Town.  The Kip drumstick was dramatically caught by David who, unfortunately, lost his balance and landed on the floor whilst catching it and in the process took a young lady with him – she wasn’t injured and was apologised to profusely by us both!

 Most treasured piece of memorabilia?

Apart from Kip’s drumstick and guitar pic it’s not something I’ve collected but a very good friend I’ve made through country music sent me a Birthday card with a photo of Kip on it and a message inside from her and a PS saying, “Kip sends his love too!”  I managed to get Kip to sign it at CMA Songwriters this year – so now the card is complete and on display on our bookcase in our study – much to David’s dismay!

 What are you listening to right now?  

Maddie and Tae – Shut up and Fish is currently playing from one of my country playlists.  Although at the weekend we usually listen to Chris Country Radio.

 If your life was a country song, what would it be called?

All I need is a Prosecco on the beach with a little Kip.

 *THE SPECIAL QUESTION* Why should you be our overall fan of the year?

Last year I went to 6 concerts in 6 days, travelling between Birmingham, Manchester and London to follow Kip Moore and Drake White, as well as seeing Marty Stuart and Little Big Town. And I planned my wardrobe specially to make sure I always wore a red dress to see Kip! Maybe I’m just a little bit crazy…oh, and this year 3 of us turned up on bikes riding along Brighton sea front to see the Brothers Osborne, and yes, I was in a red dress and wearing my Cowboy boots!!
