About The Shires

The biggest selling UK country act of all time, The Shires, 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.

After an incredible four years, Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes – hailing from Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire – have fast become a firm favourite in the UK country music scene. And now they’re making their mark in Nashville too.

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.

With support from Eric Pasley.

Doors open at 7.00pm.
