The majority of country music never reaches this side of the Atlantic and as a genre it has limited success in the UK.
With the introduction of C2C: Country To Country this year, the UK’s first country festival, we’re hoping that the genre gets a real boost in the coming years.
We’ve rounded up the latest videos from some of the hottest country stars that we just can’t get enough of.
Kenny Chesney – When I See This Bar
Despite lots of success in the US, Kenny Chesney is best-known in the UK for his short-lived marriage to actress Renee Zellweger. When I see This Bar is the second single to be taken from his number 1 US album Life on a Rock.
David Nail – Whatever She’s Got
David Nail had a breakthrough in the US in 2009 with his album I’m About To Come Alive which spanned the Top 10 country hit Red Light. Now he’s back with Whatever She’s Got, the first single to be lifted from his as-yet-to-be-titled forthcoming third album.
