The Country Music Association has announced a star-studded lineup for its much-anticipated 2020 international tour, dubbed the “Introducing Nashville” tour.
The list features Cassadee Pope, Abby Anderson, Mitchell Tenpenny and Niko Moon, among several others.
The five-date tour, which will have shows featuring an acoustic set, will have concerts at venues in Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
In addition to performing their hits, the artists will be speaking about their careers and the inspiration for their music.
“Introducing Nashville,” created last year, is aimed at providing a platform to introduce exciting current artists to international audiences and to support CMA’s mission of expanding country music around the globe.
“Bringing the Introducing Nashville tour back to these markets gives this group of artists their first opportunity to play in these cities and show international audiences how broad the genre is,” said Milly Olykan, CMA Vice President, International Relations & Development.
She added, “This tour also provides CMA an opportunity to meet with international media, fans and industry and learn more about how we can continue to increase the profile of COUNTRY MUSIC in these markets.”
CMA has reportedly made a donation to support recovery efforts and relief for those affected by the bushfire crisis in Australia.
Last year’s tour saw performances from Devin Dawson, Lindsay Ell, Danielle Bradbery, Brandy Clark, Travis Denning, Walker Hayes, Lauren Jenkins, Logan Mize, Townes and Rachel Wammack.
