Guitar virtuoso Charlie Worsham took the Holler Saloon Stage on the second day of C2C Festival 2024 for a stellar full-band performance, with the Mississippi singer-songwriter reeling off a plethora of fan-favourites for the lively crowd.

While many of the festival's daytime sets have been acoustic, Charlie Worsham brought his two fellow guitarists and a drummer for the captivating, high-energy set.

The set kicked off with a fun, light-hearted chat with Baylen Leonard, during which Charlie regaled the audience with tales involving artist buddies, such as Kip Moore, as well as endearingly professing his love for England and, in particular, British tea.

It turns out Charlie Worsham's family is from the UK, with Charlie revealing he visited the original ‘Worsham Farm’ in Bexhill-on-Sea, and that he'll be spending the rest of the week in the UK in order to make the most of his time this side of The Pond.

It was these kinds of heartwarming stories and quips that ensured the audience - which was packed to the rafters in the Holler Saloon - immediately warmed to Charlie Worsham, who also impressed during his CMA Songwriters Series set on Thursday (March 7).

Worsham blazed through electrifying versions of early tracks such as ‘Rubberband’ and ‘Could It Be’, as well as treating attendees to a moving rendition of his recent Luke Combs collaboration, ‘How I Learned To Pray’. The soulful, introspective offering was initially made available as a solo cut, as part of Charlie's widely acclaimed debut full-length album, Rubberband, which dropped in 2013.

He kept the momentum going through his cover of Patty Loveless’ much-loved track, ‘A Handful of Dust’, which he revamped as a blockbuster Lainey Wilson duet in 2023. This appeared alongside the Luke Combs-assisted version of ‘How I Learned To Pray’ on Charlie Worsham's celebrated Compadres EP.

The finale was another stand-out from Charlie Worsham's Compadres project, ‘Kiss Like You Dance’, which usually features Kip Moore. It's not difficult to see why this invigorating, uptempo anthem has been chosen as his current Radio single, with the performance leaving the crowd calling for an encore as Charlie strode off the stage.
