The Country World Cup

We celebrated some of Country music’s finest international stars, paying tribute to a certain event happening at the time over in Brazil!

While the USA may be the home of Country music, you’ll find artists in the genre from around the world. To coincide with the football World Cup, we featured a number of international acts from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, The Netherlands, Sweden and Canada.

It’s great to see how well received New Country is around the world, perhaps best highlighted by the success of The Common Linnets at Eurovision 2014, coming second only to the Bearded Lady who was ALWAYS going to take the top spot.

So, how exactly do you say ‘yee haw’ in Dutch? Oh, ‘Yee haw’ according to Google Translate, as it seems to be in most languages! Well, that makes things easy!
