Thursday Night, January 5th, marked My Country 96.1’s 6th Birthday. 96.1, Long Island’s premier country music radio station, celebrated with a birthday party at The Emporium in Patchogue, featuring performances by Russell Dickerson, Love & Theft, and Tyler Farr. With a line-up like that, the decision to hop on the LIRR and trek from NYC to the Long Island venue was an easy one!
Singer-Songwriter, Russell Dickerson kicked off the night with a high-energy set. Singing songs from his EP, Yours, as well as a few new songs we can look forward to hearing on his debut album after recently signing with Triple Tigers Records, a new imprint by Thirty Tigers, Triple 8 Management & Sony Music. NYC Country Music fans – you’re in luck. We’re bringing Russell Dickerson back to the big city for our next Country Brunch on Sunday, 1/29 at Printer’s Alley – NY. Grab your tickets here.
Following RD, Love & Theft took the stage. The emerging country duo, best known for their #1 Single, “Angel Eyes,” and recent hit, “Whiskey On My Breath,” kept the crowd singing and dancing along to every beat of the show. The group is set to release their forthcoming studio album in 2017. In the meantime, you can download their first single from the album, “Candyland”, here.
To end the show, next up to the stage was Tyler Farr. Farr, who was recently forced to take a break from touring after his micro-laryngeal surgery last January, came back with a powerful performance like he never left the spotlight. Knocking each song out of the park, Farr had the crowd’s undivided attention from beginning to end. Farr’s set included some of his most popular hits like “Whiskey in My Water”, “Better in Boots” and “Redneck Crazy” as well as his new single, “Our Town,” one of our personal favorites! Farr ended the show in an encore with his #1 Hit single, “A Guy Walks Into a Bar.” Tyler Farr returns to New York this summer for the Taste of Country Music Festival. Tickets are on sale here.
