MIXED DRINKS

Dierks Bentley rattled Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Friday during his sold-out hometown stop on the 2019 BURNING MAN TOUR in partnership with 5-hour ENERGY®. Bentley’s 90s cover band Hot Country Knights set the tone for the night as they brought out Thomas Rhett incognito as cousin “Daryle” who sang father Rhett Akins’ hit “That Ain’t My Truck,” while Mark Miller from Sawyer Brown later joined for “Some Girls Do.” Starting to feel like a family affair, Bentley’s alter-ego “Doug” was joined by his daughter Jordan, “Lil Doug,” as they serenaded the crowd. Bentley later welcomed Keith Urban for a rollicking collaboration on the title-track of his recent critically-acclaimed album (The Mountain) before Miranda Lambert appeared for a medley of classic Country hits including Hank Williams’ “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” Merle Haggard’s “The Bottle Let Me Down,” Loretta Lynn’s “Blue Kentucky Girl” and Dixie Chicks’ “Cowboy Take Me Away.” 

BACKSTAGE PASS

Our friends over at New York Country Swag teamed up with BMG/BBR Music Group to promote their brand new artist, King Calaway. NYCS was tasked with filling up a New York City venue for an exclusive showcase and the first ever King Calaway show for fans. The real test of course was that at the time, the band had not yet released music nor had they played for a public audience. Normally, the NYCS team could share music or video clips and say ‘Hey, if you like this song, come to this show’… but this time that was not the case. NYCountry Swag had the confidence that the audience we have built over the past three years trusted our taste and judgement in music and in new artists and would come to the showcase unaware of what they would get to experience. After ten days of promotions, New York Country Swag received over 500+ unique entries across all social media platforms from country music fans hoping to win their way in to our exclusive showcase event. A true testament to what we have built! We successfully filled the room at New York City’s Bowery Electric to max capacity with over 200+ people including both fans and guests from reputable outlets like Billboard, Rolling Stone, Vevo, Music Choice, TJ Martell Foundation, Nash FM and more. From the show announcement to the night of the show, King Calaway saw a jump in socials gaining over 600+ followers. Two days after the show, King Calaway released their self-titled debut EP and received 20k+ streams in the first 24 hours. Check out the video above for a fun look into some of the behind-the-scenes shots from the exclusive event.
