CHEERS

Happy Birthday to living legend Alan Jackson & to Big Loud’s Maggie Abrams

TOP SHELF

By far, my favorite country music memory of 2018 was experiencing Stagecoach for the first time (thanks Rob Beckham for making that happen). Hard to believe it’s already time to get ready for the 13th Annual Stagecoach Festival going down in Indio, CA from April 26th-28th with a killer line-up featuring Luke Bryan, Sam Hunt, and Jason Aldean headlining what has become affectionately known as “country Coachella.” Joining them are some of my favorite performers including Cole Swindell, Kane Brown, Scotty McCreery, Russell Dickerson, Devin Dawson, Tyler Rich, Brandon Lay, Luke Combs, LANCO, Travis Denning, Old Dominion, Lauren Alaina, Jordan Davis, Danielle Bradbery, Mitchell Tenpenny, Jimmie Allen, Adam Hambrick and Abby Anderson. There are also some great acts you wouldn’t necessarily expect performing including Bret Michaels, Joe Diffie, and Tom Jones! To me, Stagecoach is the biggest country music party of the year and I cannot wait to experience it again in 2019! Festival passes go on sale this Friday at 11 a.m. PDT with General Admission passes for all three days starting at just $349!

WITH A TWIST

Lindsay Ell had one of those days in Los Angeles recently that is something you’d see out of soap opera/ABC-primetime drama … her day started by getting stuck in an elevator for the first time…of course the minute she entered said-elevator, her phone died. Luckily, she was able to pass the time with Raquel and Eric who were elevator-mates before they were saved by the maintenance crew…if that wasn’t enough, what happened that night is just ridiculous…her rental car got broken and more than $5k worth of equipment was stolen including her backpack, computer, files of songs that weren’t backed up. Luckily, she didn’t lose her passport since she was headed across-the-pond to London less than 48 hours later. She’s there as we speak and crushed it last night at Borderline!
