TOP SHELF

Congrats to Thomas Rhett on “Sixteen” becoming his 12th career #1 hit and his fifth number one off his “Life Changes” album. Kind of hoping he goes for number six off this album and releases “Drink A Little Beer” (which also features his pops Rhett Akins) as his next single!

ON THE HOUSE

As y’all know, I  spent the weekend on Dylan Scott’s sold-out “Nothing To Do Town Tour” and one of the real bright-spots was getting to experience newcomer Seth Ennis for the first time. His music and humor won me over. Was surprised at the really enthusiastic reception his single “Call Your Momma” received. And he plays this new song called “U-Turn” that I’m obsessed with. He also does this really need medley of songs from artists he’s opened for these past two years including FGL, Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan & Billy Currington. If you make it out to this tour, be sure to get there when doors open to see Seth – it’ll be well worth-it.

FRONT OF THE HOUSE

CRUSHIN IT

If there is one tour I really want to make it out to in 2019 – it’s this one. Eric Church is the reason why I am a country music fan and somehow, while I’ve been fortunate enough to experience virtually every tour in country music these past two years, I’ve somehow missed seeing Eric! It was five songs in to his set before Eric addressed the sold-out crowd at the CHI Health Center in snowy Omaha, Nebraska on Friday night, the first of two shows kicking off the Double Down Tour, proclaiming “it’s gonna be a journey, so buckle up… We’re gonna have a lot of fun tonight.” He stood beneath a 137,000-pound lighting rig that ran from his stage all the way to the back row of the arena on the 10-bus and 18-truck tour, clearly enjoying his return to the stage after a 16-month hiatus from touring to write, record and release Desperate Man. Church took more than 30,000 total fans on unique journeys sans opening act each night, covering a range of songs off all six of his studio albums. As he always does, Eric owned the stage for more than seven hours to play nearly 70 songs – only 13 of which appeared on both set lists, upholding his promise to make every show completely its own.
