Nashville, You & Me - Dexeter
Our LCM #TrackOfTheDay is the great new single 'Nashville, You & Me' from Leicestershire's finest UK Country group Dexeter, written by Ben Earle of The Shires. The single will be released by Decca as a quartet of songs including Megan O'Neill, Liv Austen and Dahlia.
“It may be 4000 miles to Nashville, but Dexeter make you feel like you are already there…” Baylen Leonard, BBC Radio 2 Country.
Dexeter have moved from strength to strength since first appearing at the Country 2 Country festival in London in 2014, going on to open tours for Brit Country favourites The Shires, Ward Thomas and Raintown as well as playing all over the UK with acts including Laura Oakes, Sasha McVeigh, Honey Ryder, Jess and The Bandits, and the Pistol Annies’ very own Angeleena Presley amongst others.
The Leicestershire act returned to the O2 for Country 2 Country in 2015, where hundreds of enthusiastic fans poured into the atrium to sing along to crowd favourites including songs from their crowdfunded debut album “Four Thousand Miles To Nashville” which reached number 14 in the iTunes country chart.
Dexeter played their first London headline show to a sold out Camden Barfly on a hot summer’s night in July, and with a Bob Harris Apple Tree Session under their belt, live dates in Nashville, three songs featured on BBC Introducing and a brand new EP set for release next spring, 2016 is already looking bright for the band, dubbed by Chris Country Radio to be “the hardest working band in UK country music”.
