The 2016 Country to Country Music Festival in the UK just got a lot more star power. Miranda Lambert and Eric Church have been added to the list of headliners, joining previously announced headliner Carrie Underwood.
Church, Lambert and Underwood will be heading across the pond for three shows around Europe: one at Glasgow, Scotland’s Clyde Auditorium, one at the O2 Arena in London, England, and one at Dublin, Ireland’s 3 Arena. The concerts are set to take place on March 11, 12 and 13, 2016.
Other artists scheduled to appear at C2C 2016 include Little Big Town, Sam Hunt, Chris Stapleton, Kacey Musgraves, Dwight Yoakam, Thomas Rhett and Maddie & Tae. In 2015, Luke Bryan and Lady Antebellum headlined Country to Country, with Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Brandy Clark, Brantley Gilbert and Kip Moore, among others, also earning spots in the lineup.
Church has already been announced as a headliner for WE Fest 2016, which will be held in August in Detroit Lakes, Minn., while Lambert is scheduled to play the Music & Miracles Superfest, along with her summer touring partner, Kenny Chesney, and their opening acts, Sam Hunt and Old Dominion, in April.
Both Lambert and Church have had plenty to celebrate recently: Church is currently subject of an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, while Lambert is among the latest inductees into the Music City Walk of Fame.
“I’ve never felt more inspired,” Lambert says of her life in Nashville post-split from Blake Shelton. “It was my first summer off the road, and I’ve never felt more ready to make music and learn from music and learn from musicians and songwriters … I feel like I’m just getting started.”
