All four artists are exciting up-and-coming artists making their Australian debuts next March.

The tour will take place in four intimate venues across Australia and New Zealand.

It will kick off at Brisbane’s The Old Museum on Monday 23 March, and continue through Melbourne and Sydney before heading across the Tasman to Auckland.

Established in Australia earlier this year around the annual CMC Rocks QLD festival, Introducing Nashville aims to bring the world-class songwriting of Nashville to music fans around the world, and has since delivered incredible performers to New Zealand, Germany, Netherlands and Japan.

The inaugural tour featured Devin Dawson, Lindsey Ell, Brady Clark and Tenille Townes.

Taking inspiration from the renowned Nashville writer’s round, this special series sees intimate acoustic performances of these storied hits, along with a discussion of the inspiration and deeper meaning of their work.

Promoters Chugg Entertainment, Potts Entertainment and Frontier Touring say, “audiences can catch a unique glimpse into the lives and art of some of their favourite Nashville artists in this rare intimate setting.”

“With a wide variety of genres, experiences, and influences, Introducing Nashville provides a great cross-section of what Music City has to offer,” they continue.
