Frans Swart, producer of the Country Legends and Friends 2013 at Carnival City as well as all the previous concerts, says he always knew that country music was still very popular in South Africa.  “The American country legend Charley Pride once remarked that ‘it isn't reasonable to expect that everyone in the world is a country music fan’, and added ‘Not yet, anyway.’  The runaway success of the previous Country Legends and Friends concerts proves that not only is country music still extremely popular, but its fan base is ever-growing”, says Frans.  “The support of the public surprised even me … it was wonderful to have the shows sell out weeks ahead of the time, and the concerts were incredible.  Combining the legends with the new voices in the industry was simply the logical next step after the first two Country Legends concerts were completely sold out, and that is why we have decided to return with a new concert to Carnival City.”
