The Wheels Up Tour Lands at Jones Beach

A fangirl freakout definitely occurred when we  found out that two of our favorite artists, Sam Hunt and Hunter Hayes, would be on tour together this Summer!   Sam and Hunter are opening up for Lady Antebellum on the Wheels Up Tour, hitting cities across the US throughout the Summer.  We’ve been counting down the days since the tour was announced in January and finally got to check it out when it hit Jones Beach!

It was a perfect early Summer night for the first show of the season at Nikon Jones Beach Theater.  Sam Hunt got the evening started with hits like “Take Your Time” and “House Party,” and got the whole house on their feet.  He even came out into the crowd to sing and get up close and personal with some lucky fans!   Sam sure knows how to get the party started and leave the night on.

Hunter Hayes continues to impress us – every time we see him we are blown away by just how talented he is.  You can also tell just how much he loves music and loves performing.  Hunter makes sure that each live performance is a unique experience, and creates new arrangements with extended guitar solos and instrumentation.   We’ve seen him quite a few times now, and have never heard the same song played in the same way.   Hunter also incorporated some new skills, like beatboxing, and showed off his vocal range.

Hunter is also using his popularity for a good cause, and announced a campaign for the American Red Cross to go along with his new single, “21.”  He’s encouraging 21,000 fans to sign up to donate blood, even if it means conquering their fear of needles.  Read more about the #HH21SleevesUp Campaign!

The Friday Five: Summer 2015 Tours

Livenation kicked of the summer concert season with a huge show in NYC on National Concert Day, May 5th and that got us super excited about all of the huge tours we’re going to!   This week, we’re bringing you our five summer tours we’re the MOST excited about.

1. “The Main Event Tour” ft. NKOTB, TLC, & Nelly
This tour deserves the name “The Main Event” with three huge acts on one stage, one night, the night of a lifetime!  Yahoo!Screen is also streaming the show next Thursday, May 14th at 10pm EST for 24 hours only – if you can resist tuning in, we salute you.

2. “The Wheels Up Tour” ft. Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes, & Sam Hunt
If you are a regular reader you know we’ll go pretty much anywhere to see Hunter or Sam.  We were so excited when this tour was announced we literally screamed in a French restaurant.   Tickets for this tour went on sale in waves which drove us nuts waiting for the email with our dates in it but once it arrived, it was wheels up, baby!  If you can score tickets to this tour, you’ll be treated to some extra special in flight entertainment all night long.  After all, we don’t have to go home we can leave the night on.

3. “Rock This Country! Tour” ft. Shania Twain
Shania announced a brand new tour on the heels of her Las Vegas residency coming to a close but she made sure we knew this was her last tour – EVER!  Put on your cowboy boots and get ready to rock this country with Shania!

4. “Dazed & Confused Tour” ft. Jake Miller
When our bae Jake Miller just released his brand new single “Dazed & Confused” and he announced a tour with the same name, we knew we had to be there to see those arms in person – and hear his angelic voice obviously!

5. The Vamps USA Tour
It’s been entirely too long since The Vamps last US invasion and we can’t wait for their first headlining tour here this Summer!  They’re bringing Before You Exit along for what’s sure to be a memorable evening.    We have high hopes that you’ll be lovestruck and will shout about it for weeks to come.

 

Sam Hunt’s New Single: “House Party!”

Sam Hunt has some great advice for going out.  “It’s still early out in Cali baby don’t you wanna rally again?”  and “It’s Saturday night and the city never sleeps baby why should we?”  But what about those nights when you just want to stay in?  Sam’s got you covered.  “If you’re gonna be a homebody, we’re gonna have a house party.”  After all, it don’t take but two to have a little soiree.

Sam just announced the next single off his debut album “Montevallo” will be “House Party!”   Watch the video below for a little inspiration for your next soiree.

Pickup a copy of “Montevallo” on iTunes or Amazon now!

Old Dominion Play 2 Sold Out Shows at NYC’s Joe’s Pub

Even if you haven’t heard of rising country band Old Dominion, chances are you’ve heard a track or two that one of the members have written.   Does “Say You Do?”  ring a bell?  Or “Ex To See?”  Old Dominion is Matthew Ramsey (Lead Vocals, Guitar); Brad Tursi (Lead Guitar, Vocals); Trever Rosen (Guitar, Keys, Vocals); Geoff Sprung (Bass, Vocals); and Whit Sellers (Drums).   They’ve written for Dierks Bentley, Tyler Farr, Sam Hunt, The Band Perry, Dustin Lynch … and that’s just to name a few.   Their own single, “Break Up With Him,” has been slowly climbing the charts and dominating Sirius XM’s “The Highway” countdown.

“The Highway” hosted two back to back sold out shows with Old Dominion at Joe’s Pub last night.  We’re glad we got to experience the band live before they move onto bigger venues – like oh,  Met Life Stadium in NJ?   They’ll be playing there in August, opening up for Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney on their Summer tour.

We’ve heard people ask what’s happened to rock music?  Well if you’re looking for it, country music is a good place to start.  Old Dominion is a country act, but they sure know how to rock.  Their set included a mix of material they have written for other artists, and tracks off of their EP, released earlier this month.  The band is incredibly energetic and fun to watch live, interacting with audience members and each other.  It’s nice to see a full country band as well, with each member bringing something different to the table.

Pickup a copy of the Old Dominion EP on iTunes or Amazon now!  Head over to OldDominionBand.com to check out their upcoming tour dates.  If they’re playing in a small venue near you, we highly suggest checking them out while you have a chance!  Watch them perform “Break Up With Him” below.

The Friday Five: ACM Award Nominees

The 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards air this Sunday, April 19th, on CBS! We’re especially excited about this year’s group of Best New Artist nominees, along with some more familiar faces. Don’t forget you can vote for Best New Artist and Entertainer of the Year at VoteACM.com up until the start of the show! Here are our favorite tracks from some of this year’s ACM Award Nominees.

1. Thomas Rhett – “Front Porch Junkies”
Nominated for Best New Artist
We fell for Thomas’ funky country style, and after seeing him live he is one of our favorite performers, ever. We love all the Best New Artist nominees (really, you can’t go wrong), but we can’t help but root for the Home Team.

2. Dan + Shay – “What You Do To Me”
Nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year
This is one of our favorite songs of all time, of any genre, and quickly made its way to the top of our most played tracks. We can’t wait to see Dan + Shay + Nick (Jonas) perform at this year’s show!

3. Cole Swindell – “Let Me See Ya Girl”
Nominated for Best New Artist
Cole has written hit after hit for artists like Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, Florida Georiga Line, and more. His debut album has had 3 #1 singles and counting. It’s one of those albums where every song is your jam.

4. Sam Hunt – “Breakup In A Small Town”
Nominated for Best New Artist
We. Are. Obsessed. With. This. Song. The perfect representation of Sam’s R&B / country mashup. Sam has been dominating the charts lately since “Montevallo” was released late last year, and we wouldn’t be surprised if he pulled off a win.

5. Kacey Musgraves – “Biscuits”
Nominated for Song of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year
Kacy’s throwback music and sartorial style (she and her band are always on point) is a refreshing change. We can’t wait for Kacey’s upcoming album!
