Country trio The Railers just dropped a brand new single, “11:59 (Central Standard Time)!” We fell in love with The Railers’ sound when we caught them on tour with Hunter Hayes a few years back. We’re thrilled to have new music from one of our favorite bands out of Nashville! The new track brings a funky, party edge to The Railers’ classic bluesy country sound that had us grooving along by the time they hit the first chorus. Listen to “11:59 (Central Standard Time)” below!

After months of counting down, it’s real y’all! FarmBorough Festival is here! We’ve already previewed days 1 and 2 of the festival, now it’s time to look at which artists are a must-see on Sunday.
1. The Railers – Next From Nashville Stage – 3:40pm
We’ve been lucky to catch The Railers at a couple of shows with Hunter Hayes. They are one of our top artists to watch, with their gift for musicianship and chilling harmonies. Their live show is not to be missed!
2. Lindsey Ell – Main Stage – 3:30pm
She’s often referred to as “the female Keith Urban” and we’ve heard nothing but high praise for her guitar skills.
3. Logan Mize – Next From Nashville Stage – 5:35pm
You won’t be able to get away from a Good Time during Logan’s set!
4. Cassadee Pope – Main Stage – 4:40pm
Make sure you stick around for this set from the former Voice champion and see how she blends a little pop punk with her southern roots!
5. Luke Bryan – Main Stage – 9:10pm
What better way to end the festival than shaking it in the city with Luke Bryan? Shake it for the big rats running down deep on the tracks / For the pigeons and the bankers and the squirrels / Shake it to the Bronx, shake it for me girl / City girl shake it for me now
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!
We are T-minus 36 days away from FarmBorough Festival, New York’s first country music festival, and what is sure to be one of the most memorable weekends of the Summer! The Festival just released the full lineup and schedule, so you’ll have plenty of time to plot which sets you’d like to catch. Canaan Smith will kick off the festivities first on the Main Stage Friday afternoon, while Luke Bryan will have you singing “I Don’t Want This Night To End” when he closes the fest Sunday night.
In between, we can’t wait to catch Dierks Bentley, Kip Moore, The Railers, The Cadillac Three, Chris Stapleton, Logan Mize, Mickey Guyton, Maddie & Tae, Charlie Worsham, and more. Visit FarmBoroughFestival.com for the full schedule and get ready for when NYC Goes Country!

Randall’s Island – New York, NY
June 26 – 28th 2015
In between sets, or when you need a break from it all, FarmBorough will have plenty of other activities! Everything from a giant slide to an epic burger cook off, and even a beach house! You’ll find us in the “Festival Fare” section, with some of our favorite eats from Luke’s Lobster and Handsome Hanks.
Here’s a little Dierks Bentley throwback for you!

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.
Rising country band The Railers, who are currently on tour with Hunter Hayes and Dan + Shay, just released the video for their first single, “Kinda Dig The Feeling.” The video follows their beloved tour van, Geraldine, on a cross country trip, giving you a bus-eyed view of what being on the road is like!
Watch it below!
You can get a copy of The Geraldine Sessions from The Railers and pickup a copy of “Kinda Dig The Feeling” on iTunes now! Check out all of the upcoming Tattoo (Your Name) Tour Dates HERE!

It’s been a long week, feels like two. Here’s what we’ve been listening to!
1. “Single For The Summer” – Sam Hunt
Blame it on the fact that we’re seeing Sam Hunt again in 5 days (!!!!!) but we can’t get this song out of our head. The track is off of Sam’s debut album, “Montevallo,” which if you don’t already have you need. Go to iTunes.
2. “Ray Bans” – The Railers
We’ve basically been singing this nonstop since seeing The Railers again on the Tattoo (Your Name) Tour a couple of weeks ago. You can get it on “The Geraldine Sessions” EP.
3. “Tip Toeing In My Jawdins” – RiFF RAFF
File this one under stuff we didn’t mean to like, but accidentally do. The song has a catchy chorus, and is also a great anthem against haterz. The iconic video was released this week, even shouted out by Austin Mahone. Seriously, if you don’t love JODi HiGHROLLER, you can sleep outside in a non-Versace sleeping bag.
4. “We Ride” – North Of Nine
Fnagirl favorite North Of Nine kept it pretty simple with the official video for their debut single “We Ride,” featuring the band in performance shots.
5. “Shut Up And Dance” – Walk The Moon
The insanely catchy first single off the bands’ brand new album “Talking Is Hard” (out 12/2) has a very 80s themed video that we love! Bet you can’t shut up and dance while the band are showing off their goofy dance moves.
Rising country band The Railers just released their first single “Kinda Dig The Feeling!” You might have heard the track on tonight’s “Nashville,” or on country radio, where it’s been gaining airplay. Listen below and pickup a copy on iTunes now!
We first discovered The Railers when they opened for Hunter Hayes on his 24-Hour Road Race and instantly we were hooked by their on stage energy, musicianship, and catchy melodies. They’re also a lot of fun live, and great at interacting with fans, be it with the crowd at a show or on Twitter. We’re looking forward to seeing them again on the Tattoo (Your Name) Tour with Hunter Hayes & Dan + Shay this Fall! Check out the dates HERE!

During his outstanding performance on the Today Show this morning, Hunter Hayes dropped his big news: he got a tattoo! Not really, but he is going back out on tour this fall! The Tattoo (Your Name) Tour kicks off in October in Pennsylvania. Even better? He is bringing SecretFangirl.com favorites Dan + Shay and The Railers on tour with him! Talk about a dream tour lineup. Hunter also said that he will be doing something unexpected on this tour that’s never been done before, and that they had been working on a new technology to make it happen. We have no idea what we’re in for, but we can’t wait for this tour!
Watch the trailer for the tour below!
