Michael Ray, Tenille Townes, The Cadillac Three and Twinnie are all set to perform a virtual concert this weekend at the Royal Albert Hall for Nashville Meets London.

The session will be broadcast online as the country music stars deliver some exclusive home sets as part of the Royal Albert Home series.

For this special online concert, they’ll be presenting Nashville band The Cadillac Three, American country music singer Michael Ray, Canadian singer-songwriter Tenille Townes, and Yorkshire-native, Twinnie.

The live-stream will be available to watch for free but there is an option to donate in order to raise funds for the Royal Albert Hall.

Her set will be followed with a showcase from Michael, followed by Tenille, and then closed by The Cadillac Three who will perform a selection of their biggest releases.
