She's a Family 'Rebel' Who Is Making Waves across the UK; Ahead of the SummerTyne Americana Festival, Country Singer-Songwriter Chloe Chadwick Chats to Sarah Jeffery about Her Music and Latest EP

Article excerpt

Singer-songwriter Chloe Chadwick has been making waves on the UK country music scene since landing a spot at Britain's biggest country music festival, The C2C (Country 2 Country), in the spring.

The festival in March, which played host to some of the US and UK's most credible acts - headliners Lady Antebellum, Florida-Georgia Line, Striking Matches and UK chart toppers The Shires would be a smattering of examples - attracted more than 30,000 country music fans and put Chloe firmly in the limelight.

It has been played on multiple radio stations across the world, reaching number three on the w21 country music online chart and staying in the Top 10 for another five weeks.
