The Country Music Association will visit the Pacific Rim in March with an international showcase featuring Abby Anderson, Niko Moon, Cassadee Pope and Mitchell Tenpenny.
The five-date tour, dubbed Introducing Nashville, will visit Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
As part of CMA’s mission to support the expansion of country music around the globe, Introducing Nashville will provide a platform to introduce exciting current artists to international audiences for the first time. Each tour stop will replicate a Nashville writer’s round, with artists appearing onstage together in an acoustic lineup to introduce their songs and talks about their careers and personal stories.
Since its launch in 2019, Introducing Nashville has featured a lineup that includes Danielle Bradbery, Brandy Clark, Devin Dawson, Travis Denning, Lindsay Ell, Walker Hayes, Lauren Jenkins, Logan Mize, Tenille Townes and Rachel Wammack.
