Country singer announces UK dates…

JOSH ROUSE has announced a new UK tour to follow the release of his forthcoming album ‘NASHVILLE’.

The singer, who ironically moved away from the American city on the completion of his album, will tour in March.

“I was in Nashville for a reason. I moved there for some reason,” said Rouse of his relationship with the city. “At this point in my life, I believe things happen for a reason and I think I ended up in Nashville for a reason. Part of that reason is to meet all the people that I knew there and to soak up some Southern culture”

The album, which is released on February 14, was actually completed in Spain, and Rouse admits the title is a bit of a joke.

“It’s an insider title, I guess, for us, musicians living there that don’t really live in the world of commercial country music but know about what’s really going on in town,” said Rouse. “There’s always been great things going on here musically outside of country, but no one really thinks of Nashville in that way.”

Rouse’s UK tour dates are:

Glasgow The Arches (March 9)

Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall (10)

Sheffield Montgomery Hall (11)

Manchester Academy 2 (13)

Brighton Concorde 2 (14)

London Shepherds Bush Empire (15)
