Fans in Europe and Australia continue to embrace country music, drawing an ever-growing number of tours overseas. Lady Antebellum, Alan Jackson and Taylor Swift all wooed international fans earlier this year. More recently, Dolly Parton, Lorrie Morgan and Dailey and Vincent performed in Europe.
Parton sold out the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on Aug. 27 as part of her outing supporting new album Better Day. She continues European dates until her tour re-opens in the U.S. on Oct. 7.
Morgan just returned from her second stint in Europe. During the first overseas tours in almost ten years, she performed in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark and Sweden. She is also preparing to release Beyond the Interview: Lorrie Morgan (ANR Records), a box set with a documentary video featuring her family, friends, industry peers, and favorite artists.
Dailey & Vincent made their way across the pond for a four-concert tour of Ireland and Switzerland, with sold-out box offices on all dates. They also played the Gstaad Festival in Switzerland along with Trace Adkins, Laura Bell Bundy and more.
