The UK’s best-selling country act The Shires have announced their eagerly awaited forthcoming album ‘Good Years’, and a show at York Barbican on 20 May 2020. They will be joined on their tour by hit songwriter and dynamic performer Eric Paslay.
The title of the group’s newest record couldn’t ring truer for Ben and Crissie as the release follows two gold-certified albums and three Top 10 singles firmly cementing their status as two of country music’s most prominent voices.
The band’s new music coincides with the announcement of a UK tour which will see the duo play the likes of the London Palladium, Bristol Academy, Birmingham’s Symphony Hall and Brighton’s Dome alongside the show at York Barbican.
As with all their albums ‘Good Years’ was recorded in the home of Country Music, Nashville. It is a poignant project for Crissie and Ben now having made huge waves both on home soil and across the pond as the first UK artists to win ‘Best International Act’ at the prestigious CMAs.
Speaking on the release of their latest single and the new album Crissie and Ben said; “We are so excited to be releasing ‘Good Years’, our 4th album recorded in Nashville and also announce our next UK tour! Honesty and storytelling have always been such an important part of our songwriting. We’ve poured some of the incredible experiences and life we’ve lived into these songs. We can’t wait to hit the road next year and play these live across the country. The songs mean so much to us personally, but there really is nothing like looking out at our fans in the crowd and seeing how much of an impact they can have in someone else’s life. It’s truly a very special thing”.
