ON THE JUKEBOX

It’s been three years since @BrantleyGilbert (Team Valory) released an album, and in those three years, the life of the Georgia native has changed dramatically. BG is approaching life and music a bit differently as he prepares to release his 5th studio album, Fire & Brimstone, available everywhere October 4th 

HOUSE PLAYLIST

@RileyGreenMusic (Team Big Machine) just put out a song that I think is a career-defining song for him – it’s special – like #SongOfTheYear special – check out #IWishGrandpasNeverDied. Riley just announced that he will release his debut album DIFFERENT ‘ROUND HERE on September 20th feat 14 new songs!

ON THE HOUSE

My weekend couldn’t have started any better than watching @JustinColeMoore (Team Valory) perform for thousands of rednecks in #Baltimore … this was def one of my fav crowds in terms of energy and passion that I’ve seen for a Justin show and as always, Justin gave every ounce of everything he had back to them, which was pretty amazing, since he started his day off at 4 a.m. in NYC. Justin sounds better than ever and it’s robbery that he hasn’t received a #MaleVocalistOfTheYear nomination because pound-for-pound – he brings one of the most distinct country music sounds in the genre. The fans already knew the music from his just released #1 album #LateNightsAndLongNecks by heart – #TheOnesWhoDidntMakeItBackHome deserves a #SongOfTheYear nod and the anthem #ThatsWhyWeDrink is good-ole-fashion country music at it’s best. It’s time Justin got the respect from the industry that he deserves IMHO. Check out our featured #InstaStory section on @MorningHangover #Instagram for highlights!

FRONT OF THE HOUSE

From rednecks in #CharmCity to even more out in Bristow, VA, my weekend went to the next level on @FLAGAline (Team Big Machine) #CantSayIAintCountryATour! I loved the entire structure of the evening because it felt more like a music festival thanks to @DanAndShay (Team Warner) and the Team Big Loud trio of @CanaanSmith @HARDYmusic & @MorganCWallen. The size and scale of the stage was the first thing that really stood out to me – throughout the whole night it’s an ever-changing/moving/evolving stage complete with pyro, fire, smoke & lights. Each song has a unique feel with distinct production. It’s an immersive entertainment experience through-and-through that is heightened by the dizzying array of hits FGL throws at the crowd with a relentless frenzy! 
I expect this to be the last summer season we see @DanAndShay on someone else’s tour. Judging by what I saw from this crowd of 20,000+ – this duo is at that superstar/headlining level. I don’t think there’s another act that creates so many sing-along moments with a crowd than these two.
Talk about a guy who has just exploded – it’s Morgan Wallen. You know something special is happening when you take the stage at 7:30 and the entire amphitheater is packed to capacity. The frenzy he creates is something you don’t usually see until much later on in the night, when it’s a whole lot darker and the crowd is a whole lot drunker. This boy’s got some certified redneck swagger going and the fans are eating it up!
Talk about a guy who has come on the scene and just does his thing and doesn’t really give a damn – that’s HARDY! One of the songwriting forces behind #GodsCountry, Hardy is one-part hardcore rock n’roll and another part #Rednecker. I think Hardy is one of the most intriguing artists to come on the scene because I don’t think he fits into any perfect box – which is what makes him so compelling to watch. He kind of reminds me of a Stone Cold Steve Austin type persona – just a guy who goes out there, kicks-ass, drinks beer, doesn’t really give a damn if you don’t like him – is just that comfortable in his own skin. I’m really curious to see where he goes from here. 
I remember the first time I saw Canaan Smith – it was in this very venue in Bristow, the night #LoveYouLikeThat went #1 on the @DierksBentley (Team Universal) tour. I still personally think that album #Bronco is under-rated as there are 3-4 songs that to this day, I still listen to. I loved that FGL has Canaan playing in-between set-changes vs house music or a DJ. That continuity of music helps keep the audience engaged and their buts in the seats. It was actually really heartening to hear the crowd sing-along to Canaan’s #1 hit. The best part was hearing some new music from him and by the sound of it – I think he’s got a second-chapter coming that’ll be even better than his first.
