We've been feeling a little lonely over here in Nashville, and we had no idea why until now. Apparently just about every country artist is overseas playing shows for fans in foreign lands. OK, maybe "every country artist" is a slight exaggeration, but it's still quite a few.

Rascal Flatts has been in Australia for a series of shows, and both Joe Don Rooney and Jay DeMarcus have been tweeting the scenes with enthusiasm. "You're beautiful Melbourne," wrote Joe Don with an Instagram picture of the coastal city. Jay offered up a shot of Sydney Harbor, with its iconic Opera House in view. "Right outside my window… Sydney, what a beautiful city!" he tweeted.

The Band Perry was also along for the Aussie trek, and TBP's Neil tweeted photos from their adventures, including one of a Melbourne market. Neil also added one of himself with a living kangaroo. "A couple too coo for school #Roos," he wrote.

Chris Young was also in the land of Oz and posted a shot of himself in Campbell's Cove in Sydney. Chris, TBP and the Flatts all played CMC Rocks the Hunter in New South Wales.

Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood has been playing shows in Ireland and made sure to consume a Guinness while she was there.

LeAnn Rimes was hanging out in London, and posted a picture from Hyde Park with the tweet, "Love Hyde Park.... Beautiful beginning to a beautiful evening."

This weekend she, along with Carrie, Tim McGraw, Vince Gill, Little Big Town, Darius Rucker, Brantley Gilbert and Sugarland's Kristian Bush, will play C2C: Country to Country at London's O2 arena.
