Last Friday evening (September 27th), we set sail on our 3rd Manhattan By Sail Country Edition with followers and country music fans alike. What’s better than the ocean breeze, stunning views of the Manhattan skyline and country music? Nothing. We teamed up with Manhattan By Sail for another Country Edition sail last Saturday, September 27th and once again country music fans boarded the Clipper City to make memories they will never forget. Check out the full recap video of the special night below.
After boarding, patrons grabbed a cold drink on a beautiful clear evening and found their spots as the boat sailed into the harbor. After our founder Stephanie Wagner and our Managing Editor, Christina Bosch thanked everyone for attending our first musical guest grabbed the mic to entertain the ship.
Staten Island local, Jessica Rose kicked things off with a high-energy set including some of her own songs and some of our favorite cover songs. She had the boat singing along on “Sweet Home Alabama” as well as “Redneck Woman” and her original, totally appropriate for the setting, “Floatin'”. While guests took pictures in front of the Statue of Liberty, Rose showcased her spunky talent and incredible vocal abilities.
Up next was Arkansas native, singer-songwriter Baker Grissom. Grissom had flown into New York City for the very first time earlier in the day, experiencing the Big Apple in all its glory from the sailboat. He kicked off his set with Eric Church’s “Drink In My Hand” and continued to entertain the fans with great covers like Garth Brooks’ “Rodeo” and hosted a giant sailboat sing-a-long during Luke Combs’ “Beer Never Broke My Heart”. He also sang originals like “Right Bar Wrong Stool” as well as a great drinking song, “Jack Made Jack”, proving to these new followers that his name should be one they remember.
Cold drinks in hand, guests had the chance to take pictures in front of Lady Liberty and the entire New York City skyline. Check out more pictures from the night here.
