The Island Federal Credit Union summer concert series has already brought A-list country stars to Pennysaver Amphitheater in Farmingville, NY on multiple occasions, and did so once again on Saturday July 26th. Long Islanders were already treated to Brantley Gilbert, Thomas Rhett, Tyler Farr, Cole Swindell, The Band Perry, and so many more on previous occasions, which was met with great success. Hootie & the Blowfish vocalist Darius Rucker took Long Island by storm with the help of Eric Paslay and Joel Crouse to once again pack the house with country fans from across the island.
Taking the stage first was Nashville, Tennessee’s Joel Crouse. Despite having only been a part of country music for three years, at the age of 22 Crouse has already shared the stage with some of the biggest and most respected names in the industry including Toby Keith and The Band Perry. Opening with the popular single “Why God Made Love Songs”, off of his forthcoming album Even the River Runs, he continued on from there to play a good mix of songs, including his debut single “If you Want Some” released in 2013, which fans really seemed to enjoy. It was clear how much Crouse enjoys what he is doing by the giant smile that was painted on his face all throughout the set. That smile became even bigger when he introduced each song and explained how proud he was to have worked with guitarist and close friend Kyle Rife. Everyone really seemed to love the entire set, especially songs that have yet to be released. There is no doubt fans are in for a real treat when Even the River Runs comes out later this year!
