In only its fourth year on the European festival circuit, Country to Country is pulling out all the stops for its 2016 festivities. The traveling tour will now visit three cities over three days, with Carrie Underwood headlining every evening of the weekend-long festival.

Underwood makes her return to Country to Country after playing the inaugural C2C event at London’s O2 Arena in March 2013. The tour news arrives on the heels of last month’s announcement of her new album, Storyteller, set to be released October 23rd on Arista Nashville/19 Recordings. “Smoke Break,” the record’s lead single, recently set an all-time record for first-week radio adds upon its release, and Underwood has hinted at an international tour in support of Storyteller‘s release. 

One of the biggest country music events outside of America, Country to Country will once again be held at London’s O2 Arena and Dublin’s 3Arena, with an additional third show taking place at Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium. The festival will take place over three consecutive days, running from March 11th to March 13th.

The rest of Country to Country’s three-day lineup will be unveiled during a C2C Launch Party at Brooklyn Bowl on October 6th.
