For the third consecutive year, the NYCountry Swag team packed a U-haul and drove up to Hunter Mountain for a weekend of music, meeting country music fans and interviewing the artists. Each year we have gotten bigger and better and 2019 was no exception.
The Taste of Country Music Festival lineup this year included headliners, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Brooks and Dunn and Little Big Town with rising artists such as Lindsay Ell, Adam Doleac, Tyler Rich, Runaway June and more. Each day the festival kicked off in the afternoon and the perfect sunny weather made for quite the exciting festival. Highlights included artists like Adam Doleac and Tyler Rich premiering new music, Brooks and Dunn showcasing the military during “Only In America” and the fans packing onto the mountain for each and every headlining set.
This year we featured all of our merchandise from our shop including brand new exclusive items. Our signature line features hats, tank tops, t-shirts and sweatshirts that all help to cohesively explain our brand, clothing, and accessories that country music fans will love. In addition to our country music inspired items, our Hero Collection was expanded this summer with the addition of tank tops and t-shirts all showcasing the red and the blue line American flag. This turned out to be a huge seller at the festival and two artists, Tyler Rich and Adam Doleac even supported by wearing our shirts on stage.

Besides hosting exclusive interviews right at our booth in front of our step and repeat, festival-goers were able to grab a prop and take their picture in our photo booth. All of the photos can be found online, here. We hosted a giveaway for two pit tickets to see Luke Bryan on July 14th, at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theatre, and we want to congratulate Kristy Olivier on being the lucky winner!
Each day artists stopped by our booth to chat about their new music, playing a festival in New York and more. Check out our interviews with Walker Hayes, Adam Doleac, Runaway June, Brett Eldredge, Lindsay Ell, Ross Ellis, Tyler Rich, LANCO, Michael Ray, Ryan Hurd, Josh Turner, and Brandon Lay.
