A Thousand Horses Announce Debut Visit To The UK at This Year’s C2C Festival

Live At The C2C Festival – The O2, March 13th

Intimate London show – The Barfly,
March 15th

Latest single ‘First Time’

A Thousand Horses are your new favourite Nashville band …their sound is a lively, swaggering party recalling Lynyrd Skynyrd, Black Crowes and the Rolling Stones.”
– The Independent

A Thousand Horses have announced their debut visit to the UK with a performance at C2C, the UK’s biggest country music festival, at the O2 Arena alongside an intimate headline show at The Barfly in Camden, London.

The band recently revealed the video for their latest single ‘First Time’. C-Listed at Radio2, the track is an effortless union of southern rock with an anthemic soulful vibe throughout that mixes Black Crowes-style groove with undeniable swagger. The video features a montage of footage taken from their smash hit US tour when the band hit the road as a nine-piece complete with three backing singers, a fiddle and a keyboard player.

That very same nine-piece will be bringing their thundering sound to London where they will be performing at The Brooklyn Bowl in The O2 as part of the C2C festival alongside Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Dwight Yoakam, Little Big Town, Kacey Musgroves, Eric Church, Striking Matches and many more.

“Since we were kids we have dreamt of performing in the UK and to finally make it happen is a dream come true” says DeLoach. “The Beatles, Oasis and Led Zeppelin are some of our favorite bands. We are super stoked to come play in the UK” concludes Satcher.

Don’t miss A Thousand Horses when they gallop into town this March:
Sun 13th – C2C Festival, The O2 Arena
Tue 15th – The Barfly, London

A Thousand Horses released their critically-acclaimed debut albumSouthernality last year which features their Planet Rock Radio A-listed UK debut ‘Trailer Trashed‘ – a ballsy, southern-rock party anthem with a slick groove, soulful backing vocals and big, big harmonies.

The band have been nominated for the Academy of Country Music Award for New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year and were hotly tipped by Rolling Stone Country and USA Today for their soaring ballad ‘Smoke‘, which saw them become the first band to have a debut single reach #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart this decade while its video received a nomination at the CMT Music Awards.

Taking the finest from their influences they have created a fresh fusion of classic sounds – a hybrid of Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers, Black Crowes and Exile on Main Street-era Rolling Stones – wrapped up in a modern-country context.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
