Following dynamic performances at Country To Country 2018, Alabama native Walker Hayes will return to the U.K. to join the Country Music Association’s international artist-focused touring series, Introducing Nashville. Taking place Oct. 16-21, the tour will make stops in Manchester, Gateshead, Glasgow, Brighton and London.
“Unfortunately Chris Lane can no longer join the UK tour this time around but hopes to be part of this series in the future. We are thrilled to have Walker Hayes join this line-up of incredibly talented artists,” says Milly Olykan, CMA Vice President, International Relations and Development. “These artists are a great representation of what is current in Nashville right now – and a perfect way to showcase to new audiences how broad a genre Country is.”
The powerhouse line-up for the UK tour will introduce international fans to Country artists Danielle Bradbery, Travis Denning, Rachel Wammack and now Walker Hayes.

With its recent launch in March, Introducing Nashville has brought the Nashville-style songwriters round across the globe, with artists taking the stage together in an acoustic lineup to share the stories behind their songs with international audiences.
So far in 2019, the tour has brought performances to fans in Amsterdam, Berlin, Auckland, New Zealand, Tokyo and multiple cities throughout Australia, featuring a variety of artists including Brandy Clark, Devin Dawson, Lindsay Ell, Lauren Jenkins, Logan Mize and Tenille Townes. The unique format of the show has resonated with international audiences and allowed them to connect with artists in a new and personal way.
