CHEERS

Happy Birthweek (was yesterday) to FlyteVu’s Natalie Logan! Happy Birthday to Creative Nation’s Beth Laird. On a more somber note, the country music community is mourning the loss of Country Music Hall-of-Fame member Maxine Brown Russell, who along with her family trio The Browns helped define an era while also taking Country Music to wider, more cosmopolitan audiences. Perhaps the most important vocal group of the Nashville Sound era, The Browns’ harmonies were among the most influential of the time, immediately influencing groups like the Beatles and the Osborne Brothers. And the trio’s take on what Country Music can aspire to be can still be felt decades later in the music of modern vocal groups like Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town.

TOP SHELF

After selling out the Gramercy Theatre in NYC on opening night of his “Nothing To Do Town Tour,” Dylan Scott rolled on out to Boston and Silver Spring, MD for two more sold-out shows! The first time I saw Dylan perform was last winter opening for Justin Moore and it’s really something to see how far he’s come in such a short time as a performer. I told you on Friday how surprised I was that the crowd was so responsive to his new single and I was curious if that would continue to be the case in Boston and Silver Spring. Well, it sure as heck was. I oftentimes feel like words/blurbs/reviews don’t do these shows any justice so if you get a chance, check out @morninghangover on Instagram and watch the featured InstaStory we have for highlights from all three of Dylan’s opening week shows!

ON THE BAR WALL

Hanging out with Team CURB’s RJ & AG and Dylan Scott in Boston! Can’t thank this team enough for bringing me out on the road for the first three dates of Dylan’s tour. It really makes such a big difference for me as both a fan and as someone who writes about these shows to be able to experience multiple shows and be trusted enough to basically have free reign about where I go and what I shoot in terms of pictures and social media. I really make a conscious effort to watch the show from multiple vantage points: front of the house, in the back, balcony, stage, etc. My hope is that for all of the fans who follow the Morning Hangover, even though they may not be at the show, they feel like they get a taste of what’s it like from all points-of-view.

ALL ACCESS

If Chris Lane & Morgan Wallen’s mullet had a baby, Cody Villalobos’ hair is what you would end up with … Cody is an incredibly talented photographer/videographer who works with one of my other favorite artists Justin Moore. If you saw his, Dylan’ or my InstaStory from the weekend, you saw Mr. Dylan Scott giving Cody a little mullet-touch-up backstage in his dressing room…a little something something we’re calling the “Morgan Lane” or was it the “Chris Wallen”...

BACKSTAGE PASS

Gotta say, I really didn’t know much about Seth Ennis coming into this last week, but man, I really enjoyed hanging with him and experiencing his music. Also have to thank Seth for literally opening up the box of just made t-shirts and hooking me up! I’ll have more on Seth in tomorrow’s edition!
