A slice of country comes to Kirton in Lindsey next month with the touring show Nashville in The Round.

The evening will see Nashville residents Sarah Darling, Jenn Bostic and Kyshona Armstrong, each recording artists in their own right, come together for an evening of songs in the round from the music city in the style of the Nashville’s famous Bluebird Cafe.

Though new to most UK ears, Sarah Darling is no stranger to the music industry.

A well-known name in Tennessee, the Nashville based singer-songwriter has years of experience as a songwriter and a performer behind her.

Since moving to Nashville when she was 19, Sarah’s long list of achievements is impressive.

She has supported stadium fillers such as Carrie Underwood, Kacey Musgraves, Vince Gill and Tim McGraw, accumulated more than a million downloads and performed at the legendary Grand Ole Opry more than 80 times.

With US radio successes under her belt, including singles Home to Me, and Little Umbrellas the Iowa native has solidified her place as one of country music’s breakout performers and elite vocalists.

Last time she was in the UK, earlier this year, she performed on the BBC Radio 2 stage at Indigo at the O2.

Her new single, You Take Me All The Way’ is released on September 16 and is taken from her upcoming album Dream Country, set for release next year.

Jenn Bostic is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter who recently released a new album, Faithful, having gained acclaim her debut album, Jealous, as well as three tours in the UK and Ireland.

Her 2012 breakout track Jealous Of The Angels, written about the loss of her father, had viral success, amassing more than two million views on YouTube.

Jenn went on to win five Independent Country Music Association Awards and was invited to perform it at the Grand Ole Opry.

She was also the first international independent artist to have three singles play-listed at Radio 2.

Kyshona Armstrong hails from Athens in Georgia and started out enabling others to enjoy the healing properties of songwriting, and keeping her thoughts to herself.

When you’re a music therapist to incarcerated and institutionalised adults and school children with emotional behaviour disorders, artistic considerations aren’t even on the table.

Armstrong moved to Nashville in January 2014 and spent the first couple months commuting back to Athens to record her album Go.

But she easily made friends in Nashville and soon landed bookings on the local scene.

For a singer-songwriter like Kyshonoa, there’s no more basic function than getting on stage and getting something personal off your chest.

Their Kirton-in-Lindsey show is at the Jubilee Town Hall on September 9.
