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

carrie underwood c2c

After the buzz of seeing Miranda Lambert for the first time on Friday, Saturday offered a country pop explosion in the form of Maddie & Tae, Sam Hunt, Little Big Town and Carrie Underwood, with High Valley and Maren Morris on the Yamaha Music Stage in between. Maddie & Tae kicked things off with a spirited rendition of ‘Right Here, Right Now’, which was later joined by their three singles to date, plus a couple of other album tracks and a cover of Loretta Lynn’s ‘You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man)’. I was truly impressed by that cover and by their performing skills in general – they have learned a lot in a short space of time and were incredibly polished, engaging, enthusiastic and crowd-pleasing. I’m really looking forward to seeing them again.

It was already a busy day the morning Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna and Liz Rose co-wrote a new song called “Girl Crush.”

“We didn’t think anything of it,” Hillary was saying on the eve of the CMA Awards, still remembering being in her pajamas and writing what she calls a “coffee song” around 9:00 a.m. “Really. Honestly.”

Trying to put it all in perspective, Lindsey said: “You can’t pretend to know any of what was going to happen. We’re all trying to write a love song every day that no one has heard before – and that’s just our job.”

The three were gathered onstage at Sirius XM’s CMA Songwriters Special on The Highway. The show brought together seven of the songwriters behind this year’s nominees for Song of The Year.
