Country to Country is Europe’s biggest country music festival taking place each March in London, Glasgow and Dublin.

Robyn will play on the SSE Music Store Acoustic Stage at the festival, which she has said is one of her biggest achievements yet.

Also on the bill is Darius Rucker, Brett Young and Robyn’s country hero, Luke Combs.

The singer told Lanarkshire Live : “Someone got in touch from the festival and asked if I would be up for playing on the acoustic stage.

“I was over the moon to be asked, and to share a festival line up with Luke Combs is such an honour.

“Luke is someone I take a lot of inspiration from and he is one of my favourite country artists.

“I will be playing a mix of original music as well as some covers too. My original music has been coming along really well and I am almost ready to release my debut song.

“I have been working with Scott Somers at his studio in Motherwell and the music is coming along well.”
