KIP MOORE AND FRIENDS LIGHT UP PENNYSAVER AMPHITHEATER FARMINGVILLE, NY 8-29-14

 

Weeks prior to the CMT Up In Smoke Tour, Kip Moore made a stop at Pennysaver Amphitheater on Saturday August 29th for yet another stellar country show put on by Long Island’s My Country 96.1 FM.  With direct support from an exciting line-up of Brothers Osborne, LoCash Cowboys, and Chris Stapleton, Long Island’s growing country fan base was treated to beautiful end of summer weather at one of Long Island’s most unique outdoor venues with some of the genre’s most exciting young stars.

 

Brothers Osborne, comprised of brothers John and T.J, were the first act to take the stage. With them they brought T.J.’s traditional, deep country vocals, mixed with a delightfully easy-going folk-like rock sound. T.J. Osborne’s voice makes Brothers Osborne a very pleasant band to listen to in a live setting, and is a memorable feature to many fans that are not familiar with their music. Because they currently have just two singles released, many of the songs the brothers performed were not yet known to those in the audience. That may change with the impending release of their self-titled five-track EP set to be released on September 9th, but it did not stop fans from enjoying all the new music they got to hear from one of country music’s up-and-coming bands. The Brothers Osborne opened with a song that will be included on this new EP called “Shoot From The Hip”, a song with a great hook in the chorus that has a definite outlaw country vibe. They also played previous single “Let’s Go There” and new songs “The Last One”, “Stay A Little Longer”, and “Pins and Needles”, which are candidates to be included on their full length album that is expected sometime in 2015. They closed their set with their current radio single “Rum”; a fun, mid-tempo summery song that is currently sitting at #35 on the Billboard Country Charts.

DARIUS RUCKER DELIGHTS PENNYSAVER AMPHITHEATER FARMINGVILLE, NY 7-26-14 WITH ERIC PASLAY & JOEL CROUSE

 

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!
