Multi award winning and history making country duo ‘Raintown’ - from Glasgow, Scotland - are fast gaining the reputation as one of the hottest Country acts in Europe. The recently engaged couple, Paul Bain and Claire McArthur, performed at the inaugural Country2Country Festival at the O2 Arena in London with headliners Tim McGraw and Carrie Underwood. They also supported US Country star Brantley Gilbert in Glasgow and appeared at the Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival which included Kristian Bush and Chris Young.
With a focus on fan engagement and good old hard work Raintown are going from strength to strength. 2012 was a phenomenal year which saw them being invited back to CMA Fest for a 2nd successive year, supporting Wet Wet Wet at their 25th Anniversary concert in front of 15,000 fans - with their 7 piece band -, winning two Scottish New Music Awards, including – Record of the Year and successfully releasing a Christmas single – Still Believe (Love this Time of the Year) - that saw them top the Amazon Hot Country Releases in December.
