Friday, 22 November 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

The Shires will embark on a huge UK tour next spring.

The British country duo have lined up over 20 shows, including stops in Birmingham, Bristol, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Cardiff and Brighton, among others. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on November 29.

The pair have also shared details of their fourth studio LP, 'Good Years', which is preceded by their soaring ballad New Year, out now via BMG. Check out the track alongside the record's cover art below.

The follow-up to 2018's 'Accidentally on Purpose' was recorded in Nashville and is scheduled to arrive on March 13. Speaking on the release of the single and the new LP, Crissie Rhodes and Ben Earle said: 

"We are so excited to be releasing 'Good Years', our fourth album recorded in Nashville and also announce our next UK tour!

"Honesty and storytelling has always been such an important part of our songwriting. We've poured some of the incredible experiences and life we’ve lived into these songs. We can’t wait to hit the road next year and play these live across the country.

"The songs mean so much to us personally, but there really is nothing like looking out at our fans in the crowd and seeing how much of an impact they can have in someone else’s life. It’s truly a very special thing."
