FRONT OF THE HOUSE

It was opening night in NYC at the SOLD OUT Gramercy Theatre for Dylan Scott’s “Nothing To Do Town Tour.” There’s always a unique energy about a show in NYC. This was a hyper-engaged crowd, singing along to every single song Dylan performed. What really blew me away was the loudest sing-along of the night was for Dylan’s new single “Nothing To Do Town.” After seeing this song get that kind of response, I am convinced that it will be one of the biggest songs of 2019. More from the road in Monday’s edition & on @MorningHangover #InstaStory as the tour heads to Boston (Fri) and Silver Spring, MD (Sat). Special thanks to the team at CURB for hosting me for opening weekend of the tour!
