The Country Music Association is headed Down Under in 2019 with an international showcase featuring Brandy Clark, Devin Dawson, Lindsay Ell and Tenille Townes.
The six-date tour, dubbed Introducing Nashville, will visit Australia for five dates and New Zealand for one date.
As part of CMA’s mission to support the expansion of country music around the globe, Introducing Nashville will provide a platform to introduce exciting current artists to international audiences for the first time. Each tour stop will replicate a Nashville writer’s round, with artists appearing onstage together in an acoustic lineup to introduce their songs and talks about their careers and personal stories.
Tickets are on sale now. In addition, Frankie Ballard will headline a soon-to-be-announced date in Japan for the Introducing Nashville series.
