Hunter Hayes To Release “Wild Blue: Part I” Album on August 16

After nearly 4 years since dropping his last album, the wait is finally over!   And we mean over – Hunter Hayes is dropping his new album, “Wild Blue: Part I,” TOMORROW, August 16th!   Hunter shared the big news on an appearance on the TODAY show earlier this week.  He also dropped the title track of the album, “Wild Blue,” which you might have heard if you caught Hunter on the Closer To You Tour earlier this year (IT’S SO GOOD).  If not, listen to the track now!   The song, and the album, are all about finding yourself and the true feelings of freedom and lightness that go along with it.


We’re even more excited because “Part I” means there is a “Part II” and maybe even a “Part III” on the way, which means even more new music from Hunter!   What was the reason for such a long wait?  Hunter took his time to really write everything on his own and make his most personal and honest record yet.  He initially set out with the mindset of creating an album that no one would ever hear, which gave him the freedom to be as honest and real as possible.   This honesty really shines through on tracks like “Dear God” and “My Song Too.”

Hunter Hayes “Wild Blue: Part I” Tracklisting
1. “Madness”
2. “Wild Blue”
3. “Heartbreak”
4. “One Good Reason”
5. “Dear God”
6. “Loving You”
7. “My Song Too”
8. “One Shot”
9. “Night and Day”
10. “Still”

You can pre-save the album on Spotify now!

MAX, Austin Mahone, Blanco Brown, Ava Max & More To Headline Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day 2019

Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day is always one of our favorite days of the year!   It brings together our love of tennis and music in celebration of the start of the US Open Tennis Championships in New York City, in honor of tennis legend Arthur Ashe.  The event is in celebration of tennis player and humanitarian Arthur Ashe, who co-founded the National Junior Tennis & Learning Network (NJTL) as a way to engage kids in the sport of tennis.  NJTL is celebrating its 50th year in 2019, and you can be sure to see lots of NJTL participants at AAKD!

AAKD features a FREE Kids’ Festival on the grounds of the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, that features tons of activities like face painting, balloon artists, story telling, pro tennis practice, music and of course lots of interactive tennis and fitness events!   You can catch free musical performances on the grounds on the AAKD Festival Stage as well from up-and-coming stars like JAGMAC and Jenna Raine.

The event also features a show inside Arthur Ashe Stadium that brings together the biggest names in tennis and music for an unforgettable day.  You’ll need a ticket to gain entry to the stadium show, but inside you’ll be treated to incredible performances as well as the chance to see the world’s greatest tennis players compete in fun challenges for their favorite charities.  Performers this year include MAX, Austin Mahone, Blanco Brown, Meg Donnelly, Ava Max, and JD McCrary.

The event has a knack of booking stars before the make it big – Britney Spears, Rihanna, Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Backstreet Boys, Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendes, and Ariana Grande are just a handful of past performers.   Don’t miss out on one of the most fun events of the Summer and your chance to see the next big thing in music!

Bryce Vine Celebrates “Carnival” Release With Sold Out Webster Hall Show

Bryce Vine dropped his first major label album, “Carnival,” on July 26th and celebrated with a handful of shows including a stop at the legendary Webster Hall in NYC.  The sold out show doubled as a hometown show for Bryce, who was born in New York just a few blocks from the venue.

From the opening song, “Love Is A Blessing,” the crowd could tell they were in for an unforgettable night.  Everyone was singing along loudly throughout the show, from Bryce’s older material to brand new tracks from “Carnival.”    The singing was so loud at times Bryce just let the crowd take over and soaked in the moment, remarking that at times it was so loud it  was “almost irresponsible.”

Bryce closed out the set with his current hit, “La La Land,” which had the already energetic crowd in a frenzy.  He hopped off stage to get even closer to the fans but ended up landing badly and spraining his ankle!   You wouldn’t have had any idea what happened, as Bryce kept on performing and ended the song without missing the beat.

He triumphantly came back out after a short break, telling the crowd he “thought he broke his ankle” but that he couldn’t leave without giving his full set.   Bryce finished the show sitting in a chair on stage, still going just as hard as he had been throughout the night.  The encore included his smash “Drew Barrymore,” “Sour Patch Kids,” and most fittingly “Guilty Pleasure.”    It was a hella fun night and we’re sure Bryce and the entire crowd would do it all again!

Setlist:
Love is a Blessing
On The Ball
Sunflower Seeds
Classic and Perfect
My Holiday
Street Punks on a Freight Train

Chase Atlantic Sell Out Webster Hall in NYC

Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!  OY OY OY!  Chase Atlantic brought their massive headlining “PHASES Tour” to Webster Hall in New York City last week and the boys sold the place out!  Newly independent up-and-coming artist, Lauren Sanderson kicked off the night and comanded the stage like the rockstar she is.  Breezing through new tracks and old favorites like “Electric,” “Differently,” “Hotel Room,” and “Better Anyway,” Lauren got the crowd pumped up and won over lots of new fans.

Clinton, Christian, Mitchel, Pat, and Jesse took the stage and it was like the stars aligned and the energy in the room went from a solid 8 to infinity and beyond! Chase Atlantic are known for giving their all during every show, but Webster Hall has a history of pulling out THE BEST shows from artists. Maybe it’s the NYC crowds that are superior, or maybe it’s the water, but this was hands down the best Chase Atlantic show we have ever seen!

They burned through an extensive setlist mixing old favorites like “The Walls” and “Friends” with new tracks like “Angels” and “Heaven And Back” keeping the energy at a solid 10 all night long.  Mitchel covered the stage back and forth without missing a beat and Christian took to an inflatable pool raft to crowd surf towards the end of the set.  Clinton’s saxaphone solos brought down the house every chance he got!
