TOP SHELF

The #NoShoesNation was out in full force in #DC last night for Night 1 of 2 of @KennyChesney (Team Warner) #SongsForTheSaintsTour (special thanks to Team Warner's Shari Roth for inviting me out to the show). This was the first time I had the chance to see KC perform at an indoor venue and it wasn't lost on me how special it was to get to see him in a more intimate setting. The thing that stands out to me with Kenny is how he comes right out of the gate with a high-octane set that just ascends with each song. The guy doesn't even take a breather to say an official hello to the crowd until the 8th or 9th song! You go from #BeerInMexico to #Reality to #TilItsGone to #Summertime to #PirateFlag to #NoShoesNoShirtNoProblem to #SomewhereWithYou and 25 minutes in you've already seen more hits than most folks can give you in two hours. And the crazy thing is Kenny is just getting warmed up. What was really special about last night was that because Kenny is playing the same venue tonight, he was able to play a little bit longer and throw in some songs he doesn't usually play since, for once, the whole crew doesn't have to pack-up, travel, build-the-stage from square 1, etc. It was one of the most unique Kenny Chesney experiences I've ever had and I cannot wait to do it all again tonight. In the meantime, watch @MorningHangover #InstaStory for some of my favorite moments from the show. BTW - if there was ever a time and place for songs like #Noise and #EverythingsGonnaBeAlright to resonate, it was def yesterday in DC.

ON THE HOUSE

FRONT OF THE HOUSE

First time getting to see the original #HillbillyRockstar @DavidLeeMurphy (Team Reviver) perform an extended set and it was fantastic. I don't think I truly appreciated how many songs this guy has been a part of. His set includes the @ThompsonSquare breakthrough hit #YouGonnaKissMeOrNot @Jason_Aldean #BigGreenTractor @BlakeShelton #TheMoreIDrink not to mention DLM's own signature hits like #DustOnTheBottle. 

TAILGATE WATCH

@BudweiserUSA is continuing its long-standing support of country music and bringing the Budweiser Country Club to @stagecoach next week in CA feat @ScottyMcCreery (Team Triple Tigers), @M10Penny (Team Sony) and @TheGrillDads. Guarantee you me and my girls will be spending some good quality time in this tent!

AT THE BAR

Check out @Morgan_Evans (Team Warner) bring #DayDrunk & #Tequila together in a really creative way

BAR TALK

This is pretty funny, appearing on @Morning_Joe yesterday, #SouthBend Mayor & presidential candidate @PeteButtigieg shared the story of how he met @BradPaisley (Team Sony) but DID NOT RECOGNIZE him!!! He did however recognize @MrTimMcGraw (Team Sony) when he met him this past weekend at #NotreDame. During my segment, I suggested starting a #RedNeckRecognitionTrainingProgram for Pete. #FredPaisley

@RodneyAtkins (Team Curb) with some of the songwriters from his #TakeABackRoad album, after presenting them with plaques celebrating the album being certified RIAA Gold, at his #CaughtUpinTheCountry album launch event at ONE at Cannery Row in #Nashville.

SHOT

I have to say that I was really impressed with Kenny's opening act @CarolineJones ... she sounds fantastic, has legit stage presence, and plays the guitar, piano and harmonica. I don't know if she has a label deal yet but if I had my own label, I'd sign her.

LAST CALL

Sending you off to the weekend with @KipMooreMusic (Team Universal) @FrontAndCenter performance of #BeerMoney
