In the United States, National Country Music Day is celebrated on July 4th. With this being International Country Music Day (was established in 2003), it seems only natural to highlight the love of country music beyond the borders of the United States. The day was created to bring country music artists and fans together to celebrate country music all over the world.
Festivals devoted to country and bluegrass music abound abroad – for instance, the Country 2 Country Festival in the UK and the Takarazuka Bluegrass Festival in Japan, now in its 50th year.
