As 2012 continues to wind down, CMT prepares for the biggest party of the year by adding some international flavor to The
Big Best of 2012: A Year End Celebration Presented by T-Mobile. The eight-hour live stream event will kick off
on 12/12/12 at 12 p.m. ET and will include a special Concrete Country
performance by the Swedish act First Aid Kit.
We all know county
music is a global phenomenon that bridges cultural differences and languages. Superstars often rack up their frequent flier
miles with international touring. But it’s always refreshing to see the result of young, indie acts who embrace country’s
tradition of great songwriting while adding touches of their home country to create something new. That’s exactly the appeal
of First Aid Kit.
The duo, consisting of sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg, have vocal harmonies that only
similar DNA can create, and their ethereal voices stand out against the current male-dominated country radio. During the Big
Best live stream, fans will hear their incredible vocals in a bare-bones set featuring a single acoustic guitar.
This special Concrete Country performance is shot amidst the bustle Nashville’s Gulch district. It ain’t exactly Stockholm,
but First Aid Kit will always have a home in Music City.
