The Shires stated: "We can't believe how fast things are progressing. In November last year, we were supporting Little Big Town at Shepherd's Bush Empire. Within a year, we are now headlining Shepherd's Bush Empire and supporting Little Big Town in the United States!"

The Shires are signed to Decca records and also Universal Music Nashville - they are the first English country act to be signed to a major label in Nashville!

 BBC Radio 2 have been strong supporters of The Shires - Their first single Nashville Grey Skies received it's first airplay on the Bob Harris Country show.
