Luke Bryan’s ‘Sunset Repeat’ Tour Hits Long Island, NY For Two Shows

Luke Bryan Jones Beach

Luke Bryan’s Sunset Repeat Tour stopped in Long Island this past weekend to play two shows at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater. Night one he brought along two Georgia natives, Jon Langston, and Cole Swindell and last night Dylan Scott took the direct support spot.  Not only did NYCountry Swag offer an exclusive ticket presale to our followers, but we also organized a huge tailgate and bus to the venue for the Sunday Night show. Bringing over 100 New York country fans together to enjoy music, food, and drinking games before heading inside to experience the Sunset Repeat Tour from the best seats in the house, right in the pit.

 

Jon Langston opened his half-hour set with his newest release “Now You Know”; a country song with a rock and roll feel. He performed nine songs for the audience including “Right Girl, Wrong Time”, “Dance Tonight”, “Prob’ly at a Bar”, “Forever Girl”, even a cover of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ hit “Won’t Back Down”. He closed with another country-rock song “All Eyes On Us”. Before exiting the stage, the former college football player shot-gunned a beer in about three seconds, signed t-shirts and took selfies with fans. Langston opened up Sunday’s show as well.

Next up was the 2015 ACM New Artist of the Year, Cole Swindell. He began the show with two songs from his latest album All Of It, “Love You Too Late” and “Sounded Good Last Night” then went back to his self-titled first album with songs “Lonely Tonight” and “Hey Y’all”.  Right as the fans were getting energized, Swindell changed the mood of the show with slower songs such as “Middle of a Memory” and “Break Up in the End”. The fans didn’t seem to mind it as they were singing along the whole way through.

If you recall, a few months ago a third-grade teacher, Courtney wrote on social media about a hilarious moment she shared with her students about Cole Swindell and NYCountry Swag arranged for her to finally meet her favorite country artist and tickets to the show on Saturday. Read more about that here.

“Nothing helps me get over a break up better than a party, drinking song”, Swindell admitted before performing a combination of three of his drinking songs, “Brought to You by Beer” from the first album, “No Can Left Behind” from his second album You Should Be Here and “Reason to Drink” from All Of It. These songs provided a good segway into his next and newest song “Drinkin’ Hours”, which he just released on June 21st.

“Make sure y’all appreciate who you still have here tonight,” Swindell said after performing his second number-one single “You Should Be Here”. The track was written in honor of his father, who unexpectedly passed away back in 2013.  The crowd grew even louder when Swindell rattled off three of his biggest hits, “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey”, “Let Me See Ya Girl” and his first number one single “Chillin’ It”.

This was not the first time Swindell played Jones Beach Theater. He opened for Florida Georgia Line on their Dig Your Roots Tour in 2016 and Dierks Bentley on his What The Hell Tour. “You guys have had my back since the first time I played this venue so thank y’all”, Swindell praised the boisterous crowd.

Swindell covered shortened versions of “Old Town Road” and “This Is How We Roll”, a song he co-wrote with Florida Georgia Line. He then exited the stage for a few minutes before the fans heard sounds of a heart monitor getting faster and faster; we knew what song was coming next. Swindell closed his set with “Flatliner”, leaving the crowd with the right energy as they await the headliner, Luke Bryan.

Sunset Repeat Tour

Swindell and Bryan have a long history together. They met when Bryan performed a show at Swindell’s Sigma Chi fraternity house at Georgia Southern University, the same school and same frat Bryan was in back in his college days. They stayed in touch and when Swindell graduated college, he went on tour with Bryan, not performing but selling merchandise and writing songs for him. Swindell wrote or co-wrote songs such as “The Sand I Brought to the Beach”, “Beer in the Headlights”, “Roller Coaster” and many more. He opened for Bryan back in 2014 on his That’s My Kind of Night Tour. Swindell, however, did not perform Sunday night as he was in Chicago playing the Windy City Smokeout with Chris Young, LANCO,  Eli Young Band, Ashley McBryde, Jordan Davis, Devin Dawson, and Old Dominion.

It was finally time for Luke Bryan, who came out driving an ATV and performed “What Makes You Country” and “Huntin’, Fishin’, Lovin’ Everyday” standing on top of it. He kept the party going with two singles from Kill The Lights “Kick the Dust Up” and “Move”. Bryan then grabbed an electric guitar and shredded “I See You” from his 2013 album Crash My Party.

“These next two songs are for you, Jones Beach”, Bryan shouted before performing two beach songs in “Roller Coaster” and “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset, Repeat”.  Bryan then took a break to give shout-outs to DJ Rock, Jon Langston and Cole Swindell for keeping everyone entertained. “We got two nights in a row here so that means we can party tonight, get about three hours of sleep, wake up and then do this s**t all over again.” Bryan also mentioned that it is his birthday week so he took another shot of tequila. “Here’s to the coolest, one of the most unique venues in all of North America, right here!” he yelled before doing the shot. “Thank you so much for making two nights happen!”

Before playing “Most People Are Good” he joked about how much he loves drunk mothers but then got serious and said, “mothers are the true saints in this world and if they all qualify for sainthood then they aren’t good people they’re the best people”.

Sandwiched between his first single “Do I” and his newest single “Knockin’ Boots” was “Rain is a Good Thing”. This was a good representation of how Bryan’s career progressed. After “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye” and “Crash My Party” the crew wheeled out the piano which caused an uproar of the fans; “Drink a Beer”, a fan favorite, and “Strip it Down” were next. Fans took out their phones and held up their flashlight as Bryan performed a beautiful rendition of his sad ballad on the piano. Giving the fans a quick insight into next Saturday’s Jones Beach concert, Morgan Wallen surprised the audience on Sunday night when he came out to perform his most recent number one hit, “Whiskey Glasses”. Wallen will perform alongside Dan + Shay, HARDY and headliners Florida Georgia Line on their ‘Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour’ hitting the beach July 20th.  Bryan also invited the openers back to the stage later on in the night to sing a group version of David Lee Murphy’s “Dust On The Bottle”.

 

The superstar performed “Drunk On You”, “I Don’t Want This Night To End”, “Play It Again” and “That’s My Kind of Night” before walking off the stage. However, fans knew an encore was coming as the 2016 Billboard Top Country Artist was yet to play his smash hit “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)”. When he came back out, he gave the fans what they wanted; singing and moving his hips to the catchy, country track. To the surprise of the fans, Bryan came back and performed a song that was not his. He ended his set with a cover of Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer”. An unexpected but brilliant ending to an incredible night at Jones Beach.

Bryan will take Swindell, Langston and the Sunset Repeat Tour to Alabama next weekend but will be back in the New York area on September 7th at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey and Bethel Woods Center for the Arts September 12th.

We want to send a big thank you to everybody who purchased tickets during our presale and joined us for our tailgate party! We’ll see ya at the next show.

Country music fans made their way to the PNC Bank Arts Center in New Jersey on Sunday night to celebrate Memorial Day weekend with Chris Young’s ‘Raised On Country Tour 2019.’

Dylan Scott kicked off the show, bringing the audience to their feet with a mash-up of his hit “Hooked” and The Black Eyed Peas song, “I Gotta Feeling.” He continued to keep the crowd entertained with his song “Ball Cap” and his newest single and the title track to his latest EP “Nothing To Do Town,”. The entertainer slyly added in “This ain’t no nothing to do town, am I right about that?!,” to which fans erupted into applause.

After he introduced himself to the crowd, Scott took time to express the sentiment behind the next song he went on to play, while playing the piano. He shared, “Well, I’ve been with my wife, since I was 15 years old, and we’ve been married three years now. We have a beautiful baby boy and a little girl that’s going to be here in September. And y’all I love doing what I do, I love getting on this stage, and I love performing and singing, and I love the fact that I see y’all smile and singing along. So thank you so much- I appreciate it. But this next song, I looked at my wife, and not in a cocky or an arrogant way, just the truth, and said, “nobody’s going to love you like I love you.” And when I said that, I said that’s a song, and I went and wrote that song. It’s one of my favorite songs that I wrote in the past year, so we’ll play it for you tonight, it’s brand new. It’s called “Nobody.”

Keeping the crowd entertained Scott, went on to sing a medley of 90’s country songs, including “Fishin’ In The Dark,” “Check Yes or No,” and “When You Say Nothing At All.” By the time he ended his set with his first number one song “My Girl,” Scott had won the crowd over and was sure to have garnered many new fans from his performance.

Raised on Country Tour

Continuing to get the audience ready for the headliner, Chris Janson took the stage next with an unbelievable amount of energy. From start to finish, Janson was jumping around on stage, playing the harmonica, and singing a mixture of songs he wrote, covers, and of course, his own hits. Underneath his namesake sign, utilizing an official Grand Ole Opry microphone, and with a full band there to support him, the singer-songwriter exploded on to the stage with his song, “Redneck Life,” immediately getting fans on their feet, singing and dancing along. Fans continued to match his energy throughout his entire set.

After signing, “Everybody,” Janson took some time to acknowledge the service men and women in the audience, while still continuing the party. “I really am thankful to wake up free in this country. If you have served, please be recognized- will you raise your hand, please be recognized. Thank you for your service. It is a privilege- we raise a toast to you tonight for the sacrifice you’ve made to our country and to us as Americans. I’ll also raise a toast to your health and happiness! […] So now let’s sing a number 1 song, and have a party. Here’s one called “Fix A Drink.”

At this point, every single person was on their feet, jamming along with the entertainer and holding their drinks in air, even during his newest song, “Good Vibes,” his track, “White Trash,” and the cover of a song he had written for LOCASH called “I Love This Life.” Afterward, Janson decided to slow it down a bit, singing a mesmerizing cover of Billy Joel’s “Piano Man,” and his impactful song, “Drunk Girl.” The sky was lit up by the fan’s flashlights on their phones, making it a moment that neither Janson or the audience will ever forget.

Janson ended his set on a high note, jamming to Tim McGraw’s “Truck Yeah,” and even playing some drums, just before singing one of the song’s that started it all for him, “Buy Me a Boat.”

Raised on Country Tour

Under a neon ‘CY’ sign and accompanied by a full band, Chris Young took the stage next, beginning with his latest number one hit “Hangin’ On.” Young went on to sing nineteen songs, including, “Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song)” and “Lonely Eyes.” The former being his first number one song and the later making its way to number two on the charts.

After singing a crowd favorite, “Lonely Eyes,” Young interacted with the audience, sharing, “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been parked behind this building somewhere because I was opening for someone else. It’s my honor and my pleasure to be here tonight,” adding, “This is the ‘Raised On Country Tour.’ We’re going to be playing a whole bunch of random stuff for you guys tonight. We might play a couple of new things off the new record that’s getting ready to come out this year. We’ve been in the studio doing a lot of work on that. […] We’ve got a whole bunch of stuff we’re going to announce really soon, but most importantly, all of this was only possible because you guys care anything about me getting up here playing music, so we’re going to play some country music for you guys tonight.”

Young’s set included some of his biggest radio hits, including “Losing Sleep,” “Think of You,” “Tomorrow,” “You,” and “I’m Comin’ Over,” which all went number one on the country charts. The entertainer made sure to sing both fan favorite tracks, including, the rowdy, “Hold My Beer,” the heartfelt tracks, “Who I Am With You,” and “The Man I Want To Be.”

One of the highlights of the night was when Young sang his newest song to go to country radio, the lead single off his upcoming album, “Raised On Country.” The crowd screamed back the lyrics to each and every song, but were especially loud during the new song, giving their approval of the track to Young. He even shared on Twitter that the crowd “Broke the audience volume record” for his career. Right before singing the new track, Young got a little help from the country music family, as images and videos of fellow country musicians flashed before our eyes on the big screens as they shared some love for the country music that they were raised on. Artists included the men from Brothers Osborne, Brett Young, Kane Brown, Lauren Alaina, Morgan Evans, Cassadee Pope, and more talented artists.

Raised on Country Tour

Another awesome moment came when Young sang a cover of Garth Brooks iconic song, “Papa Loved Mama.” Guitar in hand, the recording artist jammed to the catchy song, as the audience danced and sang along. Young continued the momentum, singing his ode to beer and country music in, “Save Water, Drink Beer.”

Leaving it all out on the stage, Young closed out the night with the high-energy song, “Aw Naw.” The concert was the perfect kick-off to the unofficial start of summer and concert season. For those willing to travel, Young, Janson, and Scott will bring the ‘Raised On Country Tour’ to Connecticut’s Xfinity Theatre on June 14th.

NYCS First Impression: Dylan Scott ‘Nothing To Do Town’ EP

Dylan Scott Nothing To Do Town

After major success with his debut self-titled album, including two Top 5 hits, “My Girl” and “Hooked,” singer-songwriter Dylan Scott has finally released a new project. Today, the Louisiana native dropped his EP, Nothing to Do Town, featuring his radio single- the title track, and five other heartfelt songs.

Calling it his most personal collection of songs to date, Scott co-penned five of the six songs off the EP, including the title track. “Nothing To Do Town” is upbeat and catchy. The hitmaker draws inspiration from his Northeast Louisiana roots, paying homage to the refreshing and uncomplicated life of small-town living. The song is at the 35 spot on the Billboard Country charts and continues to rise.

Throughout the months before the EP’s release, the entertainer shared some of the other tracks off the record, “You Got Me” and “Nobody.” The former is a passionate love song seemingly inspired by his wife; despite, being the only song Scott doesn’t receive writing credits on. The slow jam features catchy and relatable lyrics that would make a great single. Also a love song, “Nobody” shows a confident side to Scott, as he sings about unmatched passion in his romantic relationship.

Another love song on the record, “Anniversary” is one that fans may recognize. Although not released until today, the track is a song that Scott has posted clips of him singing on his social media, as well as performed during some of his live shows. The slow burn features the entertainer’s sultry vocals that add to the sexy and romantic nature of the song. “With skin that smooth / It’s hard to keep my hands off you / Got a few things in mind I want to do / Baby / Why save it / When I can lay you down now and later / Put some rose petals out on the sheets / Make this bedroom feel like a suite / Girl you know we ain’t even gotta leave / Tonight I’ll love you like / Love you like it’s our anniversary.”

Scott continues to make fans swoon with the empowering “Look At Us Now.” The deeply personal track, which mentions the singer’s baby boy, Beckett, is a celebratory song about his relationship with his wife, Blair and all they’ve accomplished as a family. It’s got an ‘us against the world” mentality, but any couple in love can definitely relate. Additionally, the musical arrangement and the mix of genres makes the song feel like one only Scott can deliver. “Living that good life with you baby / Everybody thought that we were crazy / But look at us now, look at us now / Baby, look at us now”

The hitmaker continues to find his sweet spot with “Honey I’m Home,” a song about feeling safe and at home, wherever his love is. Reminiscent of his hits “My Girl,” and “Passenger Seat,” the track is “…another song about you babe,” meaning his wife. Scott’s talent is undeniable, as he delivers track after track that would work well on the radio, at live shows, and with lyrics that connect so profoundly to the listener. “Honey I’m Home” is another jam that fits right into his signature sound.

Overall, Scott delivers a solid EP that is sure to get fans excited for his future full-length album. The record is the ultimate love letter to his wife, his son, his fans, and his hometown, making it well-rounded and enticing, just as an EP should be.

Scott recently wrapped up his headlining ‘Nothing to Do Town Tour.’ We caught the sold-out show on opening night at New York City’s Gramercy Theatre back in January. The singer-songwriter will return to the tri-state area on Sunday, May 26th at PNC Bank Arts Center in New Jersey, as an opener for Chris Young’s ‘Raised on Country Tour.’ For tickets and more information head to dylanscottcountry.com.

To keep up with Scott, follow him on on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

Nothing To Do Town EP is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.

Dylan Scott, Jimmie Allen and More Perform for Guys With Guitars

Guys With Guitars: My Country 96.1’s 8th Birthday Bash at Stereo Garden in Patchogue ended up with many unexpected surprises including a special female performing alongside the guys. The lineup this year featured Dylan Scott, Jimmie Allen, Tyler Rich, Riley Green, and Filmore who all took turns performing their biggest hits to date and telling stories behind each of the songs.

Guys with Guitars

Filmore kicked it off with his tracks ‘Country Song,” “Love That About You,” “Slower” and a hidden gem “Leave Our Mark” requested by the audience. Riley Green played the two songs he recently released, “Bettin’ Man” and his upcoming single “In Love By Now.” He also sang his unreleased track “Get That Man A Beer” and his radio smash hit “There Was This Girl,” which is currently #3 on both Billboard and Mediabase charts.

Next, Rich introduced his potential upcoming single “Leave Her Wild” by saying “Has anyone had a controlling ex?” The lyrics are “If you’re going to make her do something, make her smile; If you’re going let her dance, let her sing, let her be whoever she wants to be; leave her wild.” He explained the song is about “happy wife, happy life” and loving a girl for just the way she is.

Guys With Guitars

In the next round, Dylan Scott and Jimmie Allen played their biggest songs and even brought out a special guest. Allen started out the night by playing the first song on his album Mercury Lane “American Heartbreaker” to get the crowd started. Scott opened up with his catchy, smash hit “Hooked” and the crowd was screaming the lyrics. He was very interactive with the crowd, even roses were being thrown up on stage to his band.

Guys with Guitars

The singer-songwriter told stories behind his songs especially about his high school sweetheart turned wife and how they’re expecting their second child. Allen brought out his surprise guest, Abby Anderson to sing their collab on the resonating “Shallow” duet by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Anderson also sang her sassy, southern new single coming out tomorrow called “Good Lord.”  From the crowd’s participation and enthusiasm, it’s safe to say country music is a fan favorite on Long Island.

Dylan Scott Sings “Nobody” in a 100-Year-Old Church

Gearing up for the April release of his EP Nothing to Do Town, singer-songwriter Dylan Scott released another song entitled “Nobody.” The track follows previously released title track, “Nothing to Do Town” and most recently, the ballad, “You Got Me.” The hitmaker premiered “Nobody” with a stripped-down live video performance of the song.

Scott titled the video “Nobody (The Nashville Sessions),” leading fans to believe that there may be more live videos for new songs in the future. The video was filmed at Ocean Way Nashville Recording Studios, a 100-year-old Gothic Revival-style grey stone church with its stained glass acting as a backdrop and a full-band acting as support. The singer-songwriter’s smooth and passionate vocals were on full display, as he belts the lyrics into a microphone.

Girl nobody, nobody, nobody, gonna love you like I do / Yeah nobody, nobody, nobody, gonna love you like I do / I’m gonna love you till the good Lord comes back for me you /Yeah nobody, nobody, nobody gonna love you like I do,” he sings in the catchy chorus.

 The song is a slow-paced and confident love song, co-written by Scott. The lyrics tell the story of a man noticing the attention his partner is getting but reassured by the fact that “nobody” can match their passion, affection, and love for each other. The song has a similar vibe to Scott’s past hit song, “My Girl.”

Currently, Scott is on the road with country singer, Seth Ennis, on his headlining ‘Nothing To Do Town Tour.’ We caught the tour at the sold-out show at Gramercy Theatre in midtown Manhattan back in January. Check out our recap of the night here. For more tour dates and ticket information head to dylanscottcountry.com. Scott will also be performing at CMA Fest in Nashville this June at the free Riverfront Stage.

Dylan Scott Releases New Single & Video for “You Got Me”

Dylan Scott You Got Me

As we anticipate the release of singer-songwriter, Dylan Scott’s Nothing To Do Town EP this coming April, the recording artist gave us something to hold us over as we wait. After dropping his newest single, “Nothing To Do Town,” at the end of last year, Scott released another track off the EP, “You Got Me,” along with a video to go with it. This marks the first new song from the singer in 2019 and the second off the upcoming EP.

Scott delivers the ultimate heartfelt love song with “You Got Me,” written by Justin Wilson, Jason Sever, and Kyle Fishman. Although the only song off the EP not penned by the singer, the lyrics feel personal, as if drawing inspiration from the singer’s relationship with his wife, Blair. The slow jam features catchy lyrics with uniquely enticing instrumentals to go with it. The chorus is super relatable, surely to be quoted by fans in the future. “When you kiss me / You stop me / When you touch me / You rock me / No one knows me like you / Nothing I wouldn’t do / Yeah, whenever you want me, you get me, you got me, girl.”

Scott acts as the narrator in the music video, singing the lyrics both on stage and at a table in an empty eatery, while the camera follows around a cute couple. Although simplistic, the video is exactly what it should be, focusing on the cuteness and comfortability of being with your person.

Scott continues headlining his  ‘Nothing To Do Town Tour’ with special guest, Seth Ennis, through April. We caught him earlier this month on opening night at the Gramercy Theatre. Check out some highlights from the sold-out show here. For a full list of tour dates and more information head to dylanscottcountry.com.

Dylan Scott Sells Out Opening Night of His Tour in NYC

Dylan Scott Nothing To Do Town Tour

Not too many country artists can say that they have sold out shows in New York City but Dylan Scott is now one of the few.  Last night, as a part of Nash FM 94.7’s Birthday Bash, Scott kicked off his ‘Nothing To Do Town Tour’ at Gramercy Theatre in midtown Manhattan.  The venue was packed earlier for opener Seth Ennis who also just happened to play on the Today Show for the very first time. Check out a recap of that performance here. 

In addition to singing his very single “Woke Up In Nashville” and his current single “Call Your Mama”, Ennis wowed the crowd with a medley of pop-rock cover songs including The Killers “Mr. Brightside”, Fall Out Boy’s “Sugar We’re Going Down” and Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue”.  As one of our 2017 Artists to Watch, Ennis was the perfect opeing act, warming up the sold-out venue.

Gramercy Theatre was filled wall to wall when Dylan Scott stepped on stage, kicking things off with his most recent hit “Hooked” which was the 7th most played country song of 2018.  Fans sang along to the uptempo hit as the Lousiana native ran around the stage exuding his immense passion for performing.  Showing no signs of slowing down, Scott went right into “Lay It On Me” and then his current single which just hit radio this past Monday, “Nothing To Do Town”.

He continued the night filled with high energy and played songs spanning his career in country music including the very first song that got things started for him “Crazy Over Me” which he explained to the audience he wrote for his wife who was his high school sweetheart. He also let New York City fans in on a sneak peek of what is to come from his next project, an EP due out April 26th.  “This is one of my favorite songs I’ve written in the past six years,” Scott tells the crowd before playing “Nobody” which will be on the Nothing To Do Town EP. 

He slowed things down a bit by sitting at the piano, asking the crowd if anyone here liked The Eagles, hilariously enough, the crowd starting booing, thinking Scott meant the National Football Team when he really meant the band. He then did a solo performance of “Desperado” and you could truly hear a pin drop, most likely introducing the beautiful song to his younger fanbase. He started a venue-wide sing along to Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s “Fishing In The Dark” and played “Ball Cap”, “My Girl” and “Beer Buddies” from his 2017 self-titled album.

For the first night of the Nothing To Do Town Tour, New York City fans gave the singer quite the kick-off. Scott continues his tour throughout the end of February.  Be sure to check out our coverage in a few weeks when Dylan Scott performs in Nashville at Country Radio Seminar’s ‘New Faces Showcase’.

[Watch] Dylan Scott Releases Music Video for Single “Nothing To Do Town”

Just over a month ago, chart-topper, Dylan Scott released his new single, “Nothing To Do Town” to fans across all digital platforms. The track will be sent to country radio in the new year and is most likely our first taste of the singer-songwriter’s upcoming sophomore album. Scott continues his momentum, as he dropped the official music video for the jam just yesterday.

Rocking his signature ball-cap and swagger, Scott plays the lead in the music video, as he engages in different activities throughout the small town. Viewers get to see the simplistic happiness on the singer’s face, as he greets each and every person he encounters rides a four-wheeler, and has a party outside, complete with a fire and good people. The setting mirrors where Scott grew up, and the feeling of going back home again, after experiences big-city living. “Nothing To Do Town” is the rising country star’s lyrical take on how he grew up in a small town in his home state of Louisiana. The song focuses on the joys of living in a small town, including all the fun things to do and the refreshing vibe. Check out the music video below.

Looking ahead to the new year, Scott has a lot in store for fans and the music industry. In February, the singer will take part in the 2019 Country Radio Seminar in Nashville, as one of the ‘New Faces’ in country music. Don’t forget to check out New York Country Swag’s coverage of the event.  For New Yorkers, Scott takes his headlining ‘Nothing To Do Town Tour’ to the Gramercy Theater on January 17th, accompanied by Seth Ennis.

CRS is an annual three-day convention sponsored by the Academy of Country Music and St. Jude Children’s Hospital, where country music and the radio industry gather to exchange ideas, set trends, introduce brands, launch artists and make decisions that affect every aspect of the genre’s future. Featuring some of the most established artists in the business, the seminar also includes new music from rising new artists.

Each year, a group of five of the previous year’s brightest rising artists are selected to showcase their talent as part of the weekend-long events closing showcase entitled New Faces. This showcase remains one of the most anticipated events of the entire seminar.

The Class of 2019 features the following artists: Jimmie Allen who just recently scored his first ever number one single with “Best Shot,” Russell Dickerson who was recently honored with a BMI award for his platinum single “Yours,” Lindsay Ell who scored a number one single in her homeland of Canada with “Criminal,” LANCO whose album Hallelujah Nights debuted at number one on the country charts earlier this year and Dylan Scott who achieved his first ever number one single last year with “My Girl.”

Last year our team attended the seminar and New Faces Show which featured Carly Pearce, Lauren Alaina, Midland, Michael Ray, and Luke Combs.  Check out the full recap from the week here. Precious New Faces include Kelsea Ballerini, Old Dominion, Brothers Osborne, Sam Hunt, Luke Combs, Thomas Rhett, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Maren Morris and many more.

The 50th annual Country Radio Seminar will take place this upcoming February 13th through February 15th at the Omni Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.  Be sure to keep up with New York Country Swag for exclusive CRS coverage.
