It has been a year without live music, and we still desperately miss country music concerts. However, we see the light at the end of the tunnel with artists like Eric Church and Kane Brown announcing future tour dates! Until then though, here are the 8 things we miss the most about country music concerts.
- The Good Vibes
There is absolutely nothing like listening to live music. The atmosphere, the adrenaline, the artists, the fans, absolutely EVERYTHING feels magical. We cannot wait for that feeling again!
- The Sound of Live Music
Albums and records are great, but there is nothing quite like hearing your favorite artist perform live. There are so many artists that we cannot wait to see as soon as we get back to some resemblance of normalcy.
- The Tailgate
If you have ever joined us at a show, especially at Jones Beach, then you know how much we love to tailgate! The tailgate sets the tone for the rest of the night and allows fans to connect and bond over the music.
- Connecting with Other Fans
One of the things we love most about NYCountry Swag is getting to connect with our followers at live shows by some of our favorite artists all across New York City and Long Island.
- Singing Along to Every Song
This one goes without saying. We even miss the raspy voice you get the day after the concert from singing your heart out for three hours straight!
- The $15 Beers at the Venue
What we would do to pay that much for a beer right now…
- Discovering new music acts to love
Although we pride ourselves on being tastemakers in the industry and always know all the acts performing at concerts, we love watching our friends and other fans experience a new artist for the first time. We’ll never forget when Tenille Townes took the stage as an opener at Dierks Bentley’s concert, and how crazy everyone went for the newcomer.
- Hearing Our Favorite Song Live
At this point, we have a whole list of songs that we cannot wait to hear live! We’re sure you do too!
