He recorded an album with Raul Malo from The Mavericks The Mavericks and played Wembley Arena, with Steps as a support band, and line-dancing legend Rob Fowler choreograph songs to their dances. His dance – The Beast – for Somethin’ In The Water, still attracts millions of hits a year on YouTube.
Now living back in the UK, in Aughton, Ethan hosts a hugely successful Country Music show on Liverpool commercial radio station Liverpool Live, and hosts a new podcast. He decided to put on the new night to help country acts and acoustic musicians to get back on their feet after the pandemic, and to give audiences a chance to hear live music again.
Ethan says: “It’s so good to be back putting on shows in the city again after such a long enforced hiatus. Liverpool often misses out on events like this as they mainly happen in Manchester or further afield but with the city’s deep heritage in country music it is something I definitely wanted to promote.
“This is one of the best lineups of new talent that you’ll see anywhere this year and it’s set in the historic Cavern Club, which makes it extra special.”
Country music is now Britain’s fastest growing genre. The songs of love and loss have long been the melodic backdrop to rural and small town America, now it’s booming in Britain too.

One look at the digital streaming numbers tells the story. They’ve shot up almost 50% in the past two years, according to new data from the Country Music Association. So get boot scooting and head down to see the best new acts in country, in a Liverpool venue steeped in musical history.
