NASH FM 94.7 took over The Beacon Theatre with a celebration of Country Music in New York City!
NASH FM’s own Kelly Ford and Jesse Addy kept the crowd excited all night introducing each amazing artist and thanking everyone for coming. These two know how to get a country party started!
Twin sisters, Mary and Brianna started the evening singing the National Anthem. We asked Mary and Bri about their experience and they said “It was a magical experience being on stage at the Beacon Theater. What a rush hearing the crowd roar for our Country. Nash FM has been so supportive. We really appreciate it.”
Mo Pitney, a talented singer/songwriter kicked off the night. We loved his sound, including his song “Clean up on Aisle 5” which earned him a standing ovation at the Grand Ole Opry, and we can see why.
Dylan Scott followed Pitney. He instantly made a connection with the audience while interacting with the crowd. Songs in Dylan’s set included his single “Crazy Over Me” and his very new song, “Living Room” about not knowing what you have until it’s gone. This was a song so new that he was still learning it minutes before heading on stage.
Rodney Atkins, a NASH BASH favorite, hit the stage with one of our favorites, “Farmer’s Daughter.” Song after song, the crowd was belting out his lyrics. The audience even got in on the action when Rodney threw his microphone into the crowd for “If You’re Going Through Hell.”The crowd went crazy over “Take a Backroad” and as if it couldn’t get any better, Rodney even added in a little New York City spirit to his song “Take a New York City Backroad.”
With the drinks flowing and the energy rising, the “Drinking Class” was on their feet when Lee Brice took over to close out the unforgettable evening.
Other songs in Lee’s set included “Hard to Love”, “Crazy Girl” which he wrote and was recorded by the Eli Young Band, and a nice compilation of Weezer’s “Beverly Hills,” Magic!’s “Rude,” and Bruno Mar’s “Locked Out of Heaven.” One of the most heartfelt moments of the evening happened when the spot lights went off, and those phone / flashlights went on and everyone joined in to sing the powerful, “I Drive Your Truck,” which was followed by a “USA” chant started by the crowd.
This was an amazing line up and an unforgettable experience. We can’t see what Nash FM has in store for the next NASH BASH!
