HOUSE PLAYLIST

@ThomasRhett & @ScottBorchetta (Team Big Machine) hosted an awesome #CenterPointRoad album (5/31) preview event at Mandalay Bay in Vegas this past weekend. We learned that over the past year, TR had written more than 200 songs — 16 of which are on this new album. From what we heard, this is going to be his best project yet. Thomas is truly a triple threat: songwriter, singer & performer with, thankfully for us, a seemingly infinite amount of stories to share via his music. This is my early favorite to win “Album of the Year”

ON THE HOUSE

Somehow, I managed to take a pic with @RDCountry’s @BetsySpina and Team BBR’s JoJamie every day during ACMs weekend in Vegas … so grateful to have these two gracious gals in my life! 

FRONT OF THE HOUSE

Be sure and check out @MorningHangover featured #InstaStory to go inside BIG LOUD’s party at Loser’s at the MGM Grand where @HARDYMusic, @IAmChrisLane (with a little help from @MacKenziePMusic & Morgan Wallen performed. Not a better way to set the tone for a Saturday night in Las Vegas than with this line-up!

BAR BITES

ACM Awards Sunday kicked-off with the 6th annual BBR Music Group Brunch where we got a sneak peak at the new @dustinlynch “Ridin’ Roads” music video that is CMT Music Video of the Year-worthy material. Two performances that stood-out were @AdamCraigMusic and @KingCalaway. I’ve been a big fan of Adam for a few years now and could not be more thrilled to see him back center-stage with new music. When I think of terms like “Male Vocalist of the Year” – I think of talents like Adam. If you haven’t heard his new single #IfYoureLucky yet – you need to check it out and give it a spin/stream. I’ve seen the boys known as King Calaway a few times now but this is the first time I think I really got to experience their raw, vocal talent, in a more stripped-down setting. From what I saw, this ain’t your typical group or band. All six members of this group can sing – which that in itself caught my attention as so many “boy bands” really only feature 2 or 3 of the members vocally. Their harmonies will give you goose-bumps. Their blend of positivity and charisma will you have you rooting for them to succeed. 

ON THE BAR WALL

By far, the most important person I spent time with during the ACMs weekend was Addie … this remarkable 5-year old is a 2-time brain cancer survivor and was conducting interviews at the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital corner at “Remotes.” Addie loves country music and her favorite animal is a giraffe.

I’m not sure how any song that has @BillyRayCyrus featured on it isn’t considered “country enough” – check out @LilNasX & @BillyRayCyrus (Team BMG) cut of #OldTownRoad for yourself and you decide what you think!

ALL ACCESS

One of my favorite experiences of ACMs weekend in Vegas is catching up with my country radio compatriots at “Remotes.” For my country music fan readers, “Remotes” is a space where dozens of country radio shows, national and local, set-up shop to conduct interviews and content captures with just about every single artist in town from superstars like @KeithUrban to newcomers like @TenilleArts. It’s a really neat environment and I’m so glad I got to catch up with folks like @CMTCody & local country radio station PD’s/On-Air talent like the team from 99.5 WYCD (Detroit) and 92.5 XTU (Philly). Special thanks to Cumulus’ Charlie Cook & Jenn Fallin for all of their support of the Morning Hangover!
