Reba Mcentire - Reba Mcentire Headlining International Festival Of Country Music

Reba McEntire, Ricky Skaggs and Little Big Town will headline the London leg of the International Festival of Country Music.

The festival will see the county stars transplanted from their spiritual home of Nashville, Tennessee in the US to Wembley Arena in London for a one-day festival headlined by Reba.

'Somebody' hitmaker Reba - one of the biggest selling female artists of all time - will be making her first appearance in the UK for 12 years at the festival, which showcases country, roots and bluegrass music.

She said: "My band, crew and I are really looking forward to going back to Europe to play our music. The last time we performed there was in 1999!

"We have been very busy for the last 10 years doing shows and concerts in North America. Now, we are so excited to be able to travel abroad and do both our new and old songs for our European audience, who has always been so good to us."

Ricky Skaggs - who has worked with country greats including Emmylou Harris and Jack White - will also perform at the show as will Little Big Town, relative newcomers on the country music scene, who will be making their international debut at the show.

Other acts include 'King of Cajun' Narvel Felts, Jo-El Sonnier and George Ducas, Raymond Froggatt and John McNicholl.

The International Festival of Country Music will take place at Wembley Arena on February 26, 2012 and tickets are available on sale from Monday (10.10.11). After the Wembley show, the festival will then move to Belfast, Zurich and Germany.
