The Wandering Hearts aren't from America, but they're gaining traction as a new folk-Americana group to watch. The talented four-piece from across the pond was making big moves in Nashville during the summer of 2018.

In June, the Wandering Hearts joined Marty Stuart for his 2018 Late Night Jam at the Ryman Auditorium, playing alongside well-known names including Margo Price, John Prine and Chris Stapleton. Two days later, the quartet made their Grand Ole Opry debut.
