We’re not sure what’s happened to Spring in New York, so we’re dreaming about Summer concerts. It’ll warm up someday, right? We’re about two months away from the inaugural FarmBorough Festival – NYC’s first Country fest. We can’t wait for a weekend listening to our favorite Country artists under the stars on warm Summer night on Randall’s Island. Of course we’ll be singing along to hits like Luke Bryan’s “Play It Again” and Dierks Bentley’s “Drunk On A Plane,” but we’re also excited to see some of Country’s newer acts. Here’s our Playlist for the up and comers we can’t wait to check out at FarmBorough Fest!
June 26-28 2015
Randall’s Island, NYC
1. Canaan Smith – “Hole In A Bottle”
We had so much fun during Canaan’s energetic set on the “Where It All Began Tour” with Dan + Shay. He got the crowd going from the start, opening with this fun track from his EP that is sure to be a hit.
2. The Railers – “Ray Bans”
The Railers have a sunny outlook on life and their music is just as fun as they are during a live show. “Ray Bans” is a great display of how well their voices harmonize together as well as blending their influences.
3. Chris Stapleton – “Traveller”
Chris has written hits like Luke Bryan’s “Drink A Beer” and Thomas Rhett’s new single, “Crash and Burn.” He’s about to release his first solo album, “Traveller,” in early May. His album release show at the Mercury Lounge in NYC sold out, so we can’t wait to see his set at FarmBorough!
4. The Cadillac Three – “I’m Southern”
The Cadillac Three’s new single “White Lightening” is super mellow compared to previous songs from these Southern boys. Their live shows are not to be missed – they definitely bring some rock n roll to country.
5. Maddie & Tae – “Girl In A Country Song”
The duo crashed onto the scene with their anti-bro country anthem last year. They also released one of our favorite music videos of the year.
