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!

Thomas Rhett & Brett Eldredge Kick Off The “Suits and Boots” Tour in NYC

Thomas Rhett & Brett Eldredge kicked off the Suits and Boots Tour in style last night, with a sold out show at NYC’s Terminal 5.  The duo are the latest artists to headline CMT On Tour, which showcases the best rising talents in country music.   To make it a true co-headlining tour, Thomas & Brett will flip a coin each night of tour to decide who goes on first.  Thomas won the toss and elected to open.

P1370200
If we had to sum up a Thomas Rhett concert in one word, it would be FUN!  Thomas does his best to make sure that each and every person in the room is having the time of their lives and feels like they are a part of the show.   Whether he is shaking his south side or showing his softer side, Thomas is great at connecting with the audience.

P1370078
With his new album, Thomas is bringing lots of soul and funk into country music.  The title track from his new album, “Tangled,” moved seamlessly into a cover of “Uptown Funk.”  Tracks like “Anthem” and “Vacation” made it impossible not to start dancing along with him.   We think TR says it best himself: “This is the beat that puts the fire in your feet gives you the license to be a little crazy.”  The energy in the room was off the charts by the time Thomas left the stage.

Tangled

Get Me Some of That
Crash and Burn

P1370186
After a set change, Brett Eldredge emerged, launching right into his hit “Beat of the Music,” rocking a shimmery blue suit.  The “Suits & Boots Tour” is an interesting dynamic:  Brett’s style is more of a smooth crooner, in contrast with Thomas’ funky vibes.  An epic singalong occurred to his #1 hit “Mean To Me.”  We’re talking dudes up on each others shoulders epic.

P1370296
Brett later explained that he wanted to make music that people could dance to, laugh to, cry to before launching into “Wanna Be That Song.”

Don’t Ya
Shadow

P1370313
Both Brett and Thomas returned to the stage for the encore, pouring each other celebratory drinks. “Thomas Rhett gives Brett Eldredge Advice Time”  was one of the highlights of the show, as they launched into a medley of cover songs related to Brett’s girl problems.  We loved seeing the two interact and show their unique personalities.

P1370396
“Gold Digger” re-worked as an acoustic country song was something we didn’t know we needed until now.   Thomas instructed Brett to work on his dance moves, as he launched into “Whip/ Nae Nae.”  Thomas Rhett doing the stanky leg is one of the greatest things we have ever seen.  The duo ended the night with their track “You Can’t Stop Me,” from Brett’s new album “Illinois.”

Rhett & Brett Setlist

Gold Digger
Neon Moon
The Way You Look Tonight

Real Good Man
You Can’t Stop Me

P1370406
Opening act Danielle Bradbery’s set highlighted her powerful voice and gave her a chance to show off some new tunes she’s been working on.  “Shot of Whiskey” got the night off to an energetic start.  Danielle later joined Thomas on stage for a duet to “Play With Fire,” which Thomas sings with Jordin Sparks on his album.
