Five years since they were discovered playing a gig in a Bedfordshire pub, Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes are now raising the bar in Nashville. Indeed, thanks to their two gold-certified record-breaking albums, Brave and My Universe, The Shires have become one of the most talked about acts in the home of country music. The country duo are now on album number three and continuing to wow audiences in Nashville and around the world.
And now to the delight of their legions of fans on both sides of the Atlantic, they’ve released their eagerly-anticipated third album Accidentally on Purpose, recorded in Nashville, which won over a whole new mainstream audience. Returning to Bristol, The Shires offer superb country songwriting with a newfound pop approach that will have you singing their toe-tapping songs for days.
