The former lead star of hit show Nashville sits down with James Gilmore before her sold out show at London's Royal Festival Hall
When you look at the rise of country music culture globally, you can easily give credit to Clare Bowen and her team on the hit show ‘Nashville’ for enabling country artists to sell out venues in most cities around the world.
On her trip to London, UK, the former lead star of the hit show experienced this for herself, as she sold out the 3,000-capacity Royal Festival Hall with her solo headline show… a feat previously only within reach of acts who would be stadium selling performers in the US.
She’s not the only one feeling the benefit of her own successes - Thomas Rhett is on course to sell out the 5,000-capacity Eventim Apollo when he arrives in London this November, and Kacey Musgraves is due to sell out the 12,500-capacity Wembley Arena too.
And that’s not to mention global pop sensation Taylor Swift,…

Listener Conrad suggests that actions such as uninviting Steve Bannon from the New Yorker Festival is how President Trump came to be.
Ex-editor of right wing news publication Breitbart and President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has been disinvited from the New Yorker Festival after a high-profile backlash over his scheduled appearance.
Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of Bill and Hillary, described inviting Bannon as the “normalisation of bigotry”. Since leaving the White House, Bannon has continued to vocally support far-right political causes around the globe, including championing a Europe-wide populist so-called “supergroup”.
On Benji Hyer’s Sunday show, listeners debated whether banning the likes of Bannon sets a dangerous precedent of driving extreme views “underground”, or – instead – if it prevents the further spreading those views to more people.
American listener Conrad was determined to point out that “driving people like Bannon and Trump underground is how we got President Trump in the first place”. However, Benji Hyer felt that it was the other way…
With two cutting character assassinations against him this week - Trump hasn't had a good one!
One would assume that the biggest story coming out of the US this week would be Nike making the poster-boy of the NFL kneeling movement, Colin Kaepernick, the face of their new advertising campaign – a move which has caused both high praise of the brand, and also significant backlash, including some Americans burning their Nike products.
But this was largely overshadowed by two publications in relation to President Trump: firstly, a Bob Woodward book (the journalist who broke the Watergate story) revealing the inner goings-on of the White House, directly followed by an anonymous New York Times newspaper opinion editorial written by somebody from high up within the administration.
Both extraordinary pieces have instigated a conversation over whether they will help shape the demise of the Trump Presidency.
Discussing this on Benji Hyer’s Sunday radio show, listener Lewis wasn’t entirely convinced that this week’s…
