A spokesperson for the event said: "The Shires achievements speak for themselves: three consecutive UK Top three albums, four number one UK Country albums, 100 million plus streams, two Gold-certified records, and countless sold-out headline shows, including filling the prestigious Royal Albert Hall."

The Shires first broke through in 2014 with their single ‘Nashville Grey Skies’, a playful song about Britain needing its own country scene. And that’s something which they helped happen, starting with their 2015 debut ‘Brave’, which became the first ever Top 10 album by a UK country music artist. That success continued with a succession of hit albums: 2016’s ‘My Universe’, 2018’s ‘Accidentally On Purpose’, 2020’s ‘Good Years’ and 2022’s ‘10 Year Plan’.

Their authenticity saw them embraced by the Nashville scene immediately, leading to two CMA Awards, touring highlights including C2C Festival and shows as guests to Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, The Corrs and more.
