Our ‘I Love New York’ Series features artists in the country music community taking over our Instagram Story each week to give us the Top 5 Things they love most about New York City.
This week, singer-songwriter, Tyler Rich, who just released his latest song, “Feels Like Home” took over to give his Top 5 Picks in the personalized videos here on Instagram Highlights plus a rundown below.
#5 – The Subway
Rich kicks off his Top 5 Picks with The NYC Subway. “I freaking love it, I think it’s such a way to make a massive and incredible city so connected and so easy to get around,” he says.
#4 – The People of New York
Rich includes the people of New York as his #4 pick, adding “Everybody is always hustling, on their own grind. Just getting sh*t done and taking over the world one by one. It’s inspiring.
One of the city’s oldest event and performance venues, The Hammerstein Ballroom, takes Rich’s # 3 spot. “It’s an absolutely beautiful theatre. I’ve not only gotten to perform there now, but I’ve gone to shows there just as a fan of music. The next goal is headlining Hammerstein Ballroom.
Including his favorite watering hole in the # 2 spot, Rich adds “The Big Whiskey”, recently changed to “The Grand National”, located in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood. He also includes an honorable mention for another favorite bar, “Rocka Rolla”
#1 – Friends.
Rich’s #1 Pick for his Top 5 Things he loves about NYC in our ‘I Love New York’ Series is: Friends in New York. “I have such an amazing group of friends out there that actually feels like family and anytime I am in New York it truly feels like home because of those people and all of the incredible strangers I always get to meet.”
Rich ends the series making a special announcement that fans got to hear exclusively with NYCountry Swag first, The “Feels Like Home” singer teased that he would be releasing an acoustic EP “very very soon”.
