It’s officially Summer, y’all! Now that the weather is heating up, Summer tours are underway (our first is Lady Antebellum at Jones Beach!) we can’t stop listening to country-not that we want to. It was difficult to pick just five this week but these are our picks for up and coming-fresh faced country groups that are ready to storm the charts with their perfect harmonies and wild on stage energy!
1. Old Dominion
We were lucky enough to catch Old Dominion at Joe’s Pub in NYC a few weeks ago and we were blown away with how good they are to their fans. They’ve written for so many other country artists but these guys are ready to break out on their own and show the world what they can do!
2. The Railers
The Railers are one of the most fun groups we’ve seen both acoustically and plugged in! They really bring down the house with on stage energy every time we’ve seen them. The Railers are taking their show on the road with tour dates around the US including NYC’s first ever Farmborough Festival!
3. A Thousand Horses
NashFM called A Thousand Horses “one of the tallest bands in country” and after catching their private show in NYC, we know why. Between the height, the luscious hair, and the insane talent, these guys are revving up their engines- ready to kick it into overdrive before Summer is over!
4. The Cadillac Three
The band may be called Cadillac Three but these guys turn their set all the way up to 11! Loud, raucous, and ready to party, this group blend classic rock with country that will be the soundtrack to getting’ your Southern on this summer.
5. Natalie Stovall And The Drive
Natalie has been fiddlin’ around in music since she was ten years old, her on stage arena ready energy is what is getting this group noticed. Natalie was recently named one of CMT’s “Next Women Of Country” and it’s a no-brainer – Natalie Stovall and The Drive are here to stay!
