Teddy Robb Supports “be kind.” Campaign with Virtual Show

As 2020 came to an end, we joined forces with radio station New York’s Country 94.7 and singer-songwriter Teddy Robb to help provide comfort and warmth to those in need during the holiday season. For each purchase of our ‘be kind.’ beanie, we donated another to homeless shelters in New York City. Learn all about the project and even how our founder’s nephew, Bobby got involved to help us make a difference in the video below. The purchase also gave you access to an exclusive Teddy Robb show.

Wednesday (January 6th) was the special show with Robb and in these crazy times, it was nice to feel a little bit of normalcy with a live show, even if it was virtual on Zoom.

The concert started off with our own Stephanie Wagner and Christina Bosch along with Jesse Addy from New York’s Country 94.7 discussing teaming up for this wonderful cause. During the course of the campaign, we packed and shipped each order and sent several boxes of donated beanies to various homeless shelters in New York. A big shout out to anyone who purchased a beanie and helped complete our goal of donating over 250 beanies!

Robb then joined in and talked about what it meant for him to be a part of such a special campaign. Currently, Robb is promoting his first single to head to country radio, “Heaven On Dirt”. Throughout the entire campaign, the song could be heard on New York’s Country 94.7 while radio hosts reminded listeners of the special ‘be kind.’ initiative.

Getting ready for the set to start, the zoom room was a sea of guests rocking their special ‘be kind.’ pompom beanies. Teddy Robb started out just him and his guitar playing his song, “Me On You”, followed by “Lead Me On”. Robb then teased a brand new song, yet to be released “Whiskey Can’t”. Finishing out the night with his radio single “Heaven On Dirt”, everyone was dancing and singing along in their living rooms as if they were at their favorite concert venue.

One of our favorite parts of these exclusive zoom concerts is that the artist has the chance to really interact with their fans, watching their reaction to new music, shouting them out, and reading and answering questions through the chat. It gave fans a chance to really show their love for Teddy Robb and we loved seeing it!

We can’t thank Teddy Robb enough for teaming up with us and New York’s Country 94.7! Although the show has come and gone, we will keep the campaign running and continue to donate a beanie for each sold through the winter. Grab yours here.

Fans can join our Weekly Round-Up e-newsletter here, for the latest in country music and more news about upcoming Teddy Robb announcements and releases.

To keep up with Teddy Robb, Follow him on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

“Heaven On Dirt” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our “New Country Music” playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.

Kindness Isn’t Canceled Spotlight: Tyler Rich Supports @travelingmessage

It has been a tough few months in quarantine for us, our friends in Nashville, for the country, and for the world. Small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, people are trying to rebuild their homes, many Americans are losing their jobs, and we are all forced to stay in as we fight through this pandemic. Despite all this turmoil, beauty and kindness have remained.

We decided to flip the script and shine our spotlight, while we can, on some of the kindness that we have witnessed from others because Kindness Isn’t Canceled. To grab your exclusive shirt, click here.

 

This week we chose to focus on an act of kindness that is a small, but mighty gesture. Social media is a big part of our everyday lives, but sometimes it can feel overwhelming to keep up with the Instagram “image.” However, Tyler Rich and his beautiful wife Sabina Gadecki have a knack for keeping their social media platforms humble and real. Recently, Rich posted a photo of himself with Sabina embracing, and holding a sign that reads, “Fall in Love With Yourself First.” The duo tagged an Instagram called @thetravelingmessage.

The newly formed Instagram is a site that was created to spread positivity, something we all desperately need during these unsettling times. The Instagram, created by close friends of the couple, shows beautiful images of views from around the world paired with powerful anecdotes and quotes. These messages from strangers are exactly what we need to fill up our cup. Even better, this new Instagram community encourages people to submit their own inspirational messages to be featured on the feed, so we can continue to spread the good vibes without even leaving our comfort zones! Following along here.

We look forward to continuing to keep bringing you more stories that remind us that Kindness Isn’t Canceled. Join us in our campaign, and buy yourself a t-shirt here. As always, we appreciate you support of  NYCountry Swag.

Kindess Isn’t Canceled Spotlight: Robert Kenney Creates “Dad, how do I?”

It has been a tough few months in quarantine for us, our friends in Nashville, for the country, and for the world. Small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, people are trying to rebuild their homes, many Americans are losing their jobs, and we are all forced to stay in as we fight through this pandemic. Despite all this turmoil, beauty and kindness have remained.

We decided to flip the script and shine our spotlight, while we can, on some of the kindness that we have witnessed from others because Kindness Isn’t Canceled. To grab your exclusive shirt, click here.

Today we wanted to highlight a magnificent father, who took his own trauma, growing up without a dad, and made something good come from it. Rob Kenney, a father of two adult children, has become a YouTube sensation after starting a series entitled “Dad, How Do I?” The series focuses on teaching young people how to deal with basic household tasks through simple tutorials.

Dad, How Do I

In just one month, Kenney has garnered almost 2.1 million YouTube subscribers, showing the void he truly fills for many people out there. Kenney accomplishes this through compassionate teaching in short, to the point, videos geared towards answering questions that children without fathers or father figures may not know the answer to.

His ability to pay it forward, despite the trauma he endured in his own childhood, is both honorable and inspiring. Kenney personifies how easy it is to perform a simple act of kindness.

Check out Kenney’s “Dad, how do I?” YouTube series here.

*UPDATE 6/18/20: Kindness Isn’t Canceled! We launched this tee in partnership with New York’s Country 94.7, Walker Hayes and The ‘Be A Craig’ Fund to raise money for the purchase of meals to feed our frontlines in NYC! Buyers also got access to an exclusive Virtual Walker Hayes show! Learn more about the special project here.

The virtual show has come and gone, but you can still help! With each purchase now through the end of the summer, we’re donating 20% back to The ‘Be A Craig’ Fund, so that they can continue to do great things!

The Be A Craig Fund was established by Walker Hayes as a tribute to a man named Craig who gave the Hayes’ family a van when they were struggling. His kindness meant that the family would have a vehicle big enough for all of the Hayes children to have a seatbelt. In keeping with the sentiment of paying it forward, and through gifts to support nonprofits that empower others to make the path easier, Walker wants to encourage individuals to seek out opportunities to help others.

NYCountry Swag recently caught up with Hayes and his family for a Virtual Brunch hang where the whole clan joined in for a special version of “Trash My Heart.” Check out the hilarious rendition in the video below.

Kindness Isn’t Canceled Spotlight: Nightly News Kids Edition

It has been a tough few weeks for Nashville, for the country, and for the world. Small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, people are trying to rebuild their homes, many Americans are losing their jobs, and we are all forced to stay in as we fight through this pandemic. Despite all this turmoil, beauty and kindness have remained.

We decided to flip the script and shine our spotlight, while we can, on some of the kindness that we have witnessed from others because Kindness Isn’t Canceled. To grab your exclusive shirt, click here.

This week, we learned of a cool way that a famous newscaster Lester Holt is given back to the community. Young kids, children, and even teenagers are constantly asking questions to their parents and other adults about what is going on in the world, and sometimes, mainstream news is too scary or too much for even adults. With that being said, families can only shelter their kids for so long, and truthfully, they deserve to be given the chance to understand.

Lester Holt Nightly News Kids

For all these reasons, Holt in conjunction with NBC News has started NBC NIGHTLY NEWS: KIDS EDITION as an outlet to discuss all the top stories going on in the world in a way that kids can understand and digest. The program broadcasts on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, running for approximately 10 minutes. The show is also available via NBC’s Youtube channel.

Children have a voice, so it’s important that we give them the platform to be heard and to comprehend everything going on. Even so, Holt makes it a point to discuss lighthearted and happy subjects too because admit all the chaos in the world, there are positive stories to relish in too.

Kindness Isn’t Canceled Spotlight: Music Always Prevails

It has been a tough few weeks for Nashville, for the country, and for the world. Small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, people are trying to rebuild their homes, many Americans are losing their jobs, and we are all forced to stay in as we fight through this pandemic. Despite all this turmoil, beauty and kindness have remained.

We decided to flip the script and shine our spotlight, while we can, on some of the kindness that we have witnessed from others because Kindness Isn’t Canceled. To grab your exclusive shirt, click here.

This week we noticed a sobering theme in a lot of our blog posts and reviews this week, music is always there for us. For a couple weeks, new music releases we are at a standstill. We noticed when new songs were missing, but we recognized even more the impact music has, when it returned. Despite all the uncertainty and the chaos going on, music has always found a way to rise from the ashes and lift up our spirits. Music always prevails.

 

Many artists in the country music genre have shared some new music over the past few weeks that were inspired by their own experiences during this pandemic or just released in spite of the isolation. Hope and relatability are the common threads between all the new music. It was the gift we needed.

 

Here are a few of our favorites so far.

  1. “Six Feet Apart”- Luke Combs

But there’ll be crowds and there’ll be shows / And there will be light after dark / Some day when we aren’t six feet apart”

 

  1. “Ya Heard”- Thomas Rhett

People say you’ve got a way of being pretty funny while you make us wait / cause I look at these babies crawling up on me / the ones that I bothered you about since I was 23 / Ya I know that I wasn’t wasting breath or words cause I look at them and I look at her / More than I deserve yeah I’m pretty sure ya heard”

 

  1. “humble and kind”- Avenue Beat (cover)

When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you / When the work you put in is realized / Let yourself feel the pride, but / Always stay humble and kind”

 

  1. “When I Say Amen”- Rachel Wammack

At the end of a prayer / Running out on the edge / On fire like a sunset / I lift my hands / To first love shooting stars / Burning candles in the dark / Every step, every breath / That’s when I say amen”

 

  1. “Better Than Me”- Riley Green

With all this goin’ on / I found some right in all this wrong / And I finally see / The good Lord knows better than me”

Kindness Isn’t Canceled Spotlight: John Krasinski’s ‘Some Good News’

It has been a tough few weeks for Nashville, for the country, and for the world. Small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, people are trying to rebuild their homes, many Americans are losing their jobs, and we are all forced to stay in as we fight through this pandemic. Despite all this turmoil, beauty and kindness have remained.

We decided to flip the script and shine our spotlight, while we can, on some of the kindness that we have witnessed from others because Kindness Isn’t Canceled. To grab your exclusive shirt, click here.

This week we are excited to share with you actor Jon Krasinski’s new Youtube web series called ‘Some Good News.’ Like us, Krasinski aims to highlight some good news and positive stories from around the world. The ‘news’ show is dedicated to spreading only positive messages to people. His project is the perfect way for someone with his resources and connections to share and spread kindness with his fans and a wider audience.

Krasinski invites some of his famous friends like Steve Carrell and Brad Pitt to the show, as well as, some inspiring people like Coco, a 15-year-old, who has recently had her last chemotherapy treatment. He also shares clips of good news that have been submitted by people all over the world.

In the first episode of the show Krasinki ends with Krasinski ‘signing off,” adding “no matter how tough life can get, there’s always good in the world.” This embodies the whole project as a whole. Somehow he has managed to find a way to provide us with real news, comic relief, and a sense of humility during these unprecedented times.

 

Watch all four episodes on the YouTube channel here.
