In celebration of the Grand Ole Opry’s 90th Anniversary, the Opry and Southwest Airlines are returning to the heart of New York City for the third annual series of free acoustic performances at the Southwest Porch at Bryant Park. Nashville’s New Music in New York is set to feature two of country music’s top new acts, Kelsea Ballerini (Sept. 9) and Chase Bryant (Sept. 28). Ballerini and Bryant will each travel to Manhattan with the Opry’s signature microphone stand and will continue the 90th anniversary year tradition of throwing down a replica of the famed circle of wood from center stage at the Opry House, a la an “Opry Circle Throwdown.”

Kelly Ford from New York’s NASH FM 94.7 will host the Bryant Park concerts. Each performance is open to the public, and seating will be based on a first-come first-served basis. Other guests will be invited to be a part of each performance in the park outside the perimeter of the Southwest Porch.

“We’re excited to take part of our 90th anniversary celebration to New York and introduce two of our favorite new artists to audiences there,” said Pete Fisher, Opry Vice President and General Manager.

“Southwest Airlines and our partners from Bryant Park Corporation are thrilled to bring the sounds of Nashville to the Big Apple,” said Kevin Krone, Southwest Airlines Chief Marketing Officer.  “Partnerships like these give us the opportunity to showcase our top destinations to our New York Customers.”

The Opry will officially celebrate with its 90th Birthday Bash in Nashville Oct. 2 & 3.

Jon Pardi Announces ‘All Time High’ Tour with the Brothers Osborne

jon pardi

Jon Pardi announces today his headlining All Time High Tour presented by Texas Roadhouse launching this fall. With 18 cross-country dates, the California native kicks off the tour in his home state at House of Blues in San Diego on Oct. 8th. Fans can purchase tickets beginning August 28 at with an exclusive presale for Pardi fan club members opening August 26th.

On the All Time High Tour, fans can expect to hear their favorites from Pardi’s highly-praised debut album Write You A Song including Top 10 GOLD-certified hit “Up All Night,” “Missin’ You Crazy,” “What I Can’t Put Down,” as well as much-anticipated new music. In between his active tour schedule, Pardi has been busy in the studio writing and recording for his forthcoming sophomore album with the lead single from the project set to release in the coming weeks. On the All Time High Tour, fans will have the unique opportunity to preview brand new music from the singer-songwriter.

“Out of all the tours I’ve been fortunate to be a part of, this one is especially exciting because we’ve been building towards this moment for a while. I have been buddies with TJ and John [Osborne] since moving to Nashville and we have talked about touring together for years. It’s finally here and going to be a blast,” shares Pardi. “I really love the new music I have been working on for the next album and cannot wait to start playing it out on the road for the fans.”

“We have a long history of supporting country music. From our jukeboxes to line dancing among our staff, country music is a big part of the atmosphere at our restaurants,” says Kent Taylor, Texas Roadhouse, Founder and CEO. “We’re proud to partner with Jon on his ‘All Time High Tour’ and our guests can look forward to hearing his music in our restaurants.”

Carving out a new path in the country marketplace and gaining an incredibly strong fan following on the road, Pardi has been praised by The New York Times as “redolent of the buttoned-up power-country of a couple decades ago” and NPR Music for his “clever way with wordplay” and “doing a good job of straddling two markets – what the large mainstream country demo wants, which is pop-country-rock as party anthems, and the smaller segment of the market that prizes its own concept of authenticity.”

Joining Pardi on tour is ACM and CMT Awards nominated duo, Brothers Osborne. Topping the “2015 Ones To Watch” lists for Rolling Stone, Spotify, Paste, Country Weekly and Nashville Lifestyles, the duo kicks off the tour as their current Top 30 single “Stay A Little Longer” fires up country radio charts, leading their forthcoming debut album expected early next year.

Clare Dunn Announces Heartland Tour

Clare Dunn

Clare Dunn announces her inaugural Heartland Tour, an initiative to benefit and highlight small farming communities. Raised on a farm in Southeast Colorado with a population of approximately 30, Clare hopes to shine a light on deserving communities similar to her own. Clare established the Heartland Tour as an annual event providing exposure to a select number of struggling farming communities in the Heartland of America.

The debut Heartland Tour will be held near Clare’s hometown of Two Buttes, where her family still resides, on September 19 at The Sand and Sage Rodeo Pavilion in Lamar, CO. Tickets are available now for $15 and can be purchased here: All net proceeds go directly back into the surrounding farming communities.

“I couldn’t be more excited to go back to Colorado and perform for the deserving farm communities near my hometown” says Clare. “My farming upbringing has been integral in shaping who I am as an artist and I am passionate on giving back to the great, hard-working people that make up these communities.”

The Heartland Tour is the first initiative of Clare’s “My Love Gives Back Fund” of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee (CFMT) and will be produced by Big Hearted Babes. The “My Love Gives Back Fund” will focus on Clare’s many philanthropic interests including farming families and communities.

Clare’s debut single “Move On” continues to climb the country airplay charts and will be featured on her self-titled EP out September 18. Fans can catch the singer/songwriter this fall as part of Miranda Lambert’s Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour as well as Chris Young’s I’m Comin’ Over Tour.
