Country Music Big In Europe

Country Music Big In Europe

Since May 10, 2014 Country Music has a new home! It is not America, not Canada, not Australia, not Asia! It is Europe! Believe it or not, but millions of music lovers in Europe voted during the Eurovison Song Contest for the duo The Common Linnets with the their song “Calm After The Storm” coming in #2.

The Common Linnets based in the Netherlands are Ilse DeLange and Waylon. They recorded an amazing 12 song country album in Nashville, TN.

1. Calm After The Storm
2. Hungry Hands
3. Arms Of Salvation
4. Still Loving After You
5. Sun Song
6. Lovers & Liars
7. Broken But Home
8. Before Complete Surrender
9. Where Do I Go With Me
10. Time Has No Mercy
11. Give Me A Reason
12. When Love Was King
13. Love Goes On

The Common Linnets are now building a fan base with US country music audiences. Remember Keith Urban? When his record label introduced him to the public in Germany they said, “We're proud to present Rock & Pop artist Keith Urban from Australia”. Now they can tell German and European music lovers what kind of music Nashville artists are really playing. It doesn’t matter what country they come from. What’s important is where they're based and what kind of music they record.

Since The Common Linnets made it to #2 at the Eurovison Song Contest 2014, Europe is more than ready for good country music.
