Stephanie Wagner Founder/Operator
NYCountry Swag Founder and Operator Stephanie Wagner grew up on the water in Broad Channel, an island in Jamaica Bay, Queens, just outside of NYC. After studying Business Management, Stephanie continued to pursue a career in event management with In Good Company Hospitality, a thriving food and beverage company primarily located in New York City.
After organizing several successful country music themed events with In Good Company, she recognized the niche, untapped market of country music in New York City. In an effort to tie two things she loved together, country music and special events, Stephanie founded NYCountry Swag in December of 2015.
She gives credit to her mother for her fascination with the music world. Growing up, there was always music on in the house. Whether it was Patsy Cline, Elvis Presley or Pat Benatar, she can not remember a time her mother wasn’t dancing around the kitchen, singing her favorite tunes.
Fun Fact – The “Swag” in NYCountry Swag is a play on Stephanie’s own name, S WAGner.
Christina Bosch studied Communications & Media Studies at Adelphi University. She joined the NYCountry Swag team as Managing Editor in September 2017 and is thrilled to help curate content and be a part of a team that helps to grow the brand as New York’s leading go-to for all things country music.
She gives credit to her mom for her love of country music, growing up she listened to Garth Brooks and the Dixie Chicks, which has shaped her love for the genre today. With a background in journalism as well as digital marketing Christina brings an array of insights and looks forward to expanding her knowledge of the music industry.
She loves learning the stories behind her favorite songs and discovering and highlighting new artists and songwriters. In September of 2018 she welcomed her first child, Jack and she can’t wait to cultivate his love for country music as he gets older.
