Previewed: Royal South at Gullivers

Manchester gigs - Royal South

The exciting new country trio Royal South come to Manchester’s Gullivers in the midst of a 13 date UK tour.

The trio sees SaraBeth, Glen Mitchell and Vickie Vaughn uniting to bring a brilliant 3 part harmony, some southern twang and a British accent to the stage.

Individual artists in their own right, with chart topping songs, Grand Ole Opry performances, industry awards, a fiercely loyal social media following, and world tours between them, Royal South is the perfect storm for the creation of a Nashville powerhouse.

Royal South blend country and bluegrass influences with acoustic and contemporary sounds.  They released their debut single Cry, Cry in January 2019 with the track hitting the number one spot on the UK ITunes Country Chart and peaking at number 2 on the US iTunes New Country Chart.  It also racked up an impressive 700,000 streams on Spotify within three months of release.  They have also scooped British Country Music Association nominations (Best International Touring Artist, Best International Song for Cry, Cry).

Cry, Cry marked just the beginning though with Royal South hitting the studio with renowned producer Paul Worley who produced the Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry and Martina McBride.  “The songs on this project are really strong” exclaims SaraBeth.  “We spent months listening to song pitches.  Walker Hayes co-wrote Feet and Everything I Touch Turns Blue.  The late Andrew Dorff is a writer on our debut single Cry, Cry.  RaeLynn co-wrote another.  It’s been a year since new music has been released and we’re super excited about fans getting to hear this music.”
