Country to Country (C2C) Festival 2016 | Day One, London – Review

miranda lambert c2c

The Country to Country festival, otherwise known as C2C, started big and has been growing in scale year on year.

I have seen every CMA Songwriters event to grace the O2 Arena, and there are always high expectations. I love the camaraderie and collaboration of the artists and songwriters, the sprinkling of hits with little-known gems and brand new material, and how the crowd treats the performers with such reverence. There’s the stories, too; how the songs came to be and little tidbits of the aftermath of their release. This show was no different, and yet it was on a higher level than any songwriters show I had seen yet.
