Country music today is hotter than it's ever been. In fact, it is so hot it's going worldwide! London's historic O2 Arena is gearing up for it's first ever C2C: Country to Country two day festival.  Tim McGraw and Carrie Underwood have been announced as the headliners for the superstar-heavy event, which is set to take place on March 16 and 17.

 

This will be McGraw's first trip across international waters to play at such an amazing event and he says he is looking forward to bringing country music to London, England. Meanwhile, this is Underwood's second time to visit the United Kingdom in less than a year in promotion of her latest platinum-selling album, 'Blown Away.' The 'Two Black Cadillacs' singer sold out London's prestigious Royal Albert Hall in an incredible 90 minutes.

Also slated to appear are Little Big Town, Vince Gill, Brantley Gilbert, LeAnn Rimes and Darius Rucker. Sugarland's Krisian Bush is also scheduled to perform in his first major music appearance without his duo partner by his side. Jennifer Nettles as most know welcomed a baby boy, named Magnus, on December 6, 2012.

Just wondering if the royal couple will be in attendence!
