Drake White and The Big Fire’s “Muddy Water-inspired soul-country” (Taste of Country) is resonating with artists and fans alike. White’s music, including his Top-40 single “It Feels Good,” has attracted some major fans in both Little Big Town and now Zac Brown Band. Enough so that both groups tapped the DOT/BMLG recording artist for their respective tours this fall with dates starting this Friday at New York City’s Citi Field with ZBB.

Growing listening to dynamic touring acts like Joe Cocker and The Grease Band and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, the Alabama-born soulful singer couldn’t imagine a better scenario than to be chosen for these tours. “You don’t even dream of opportunities like this,” shares White. “To be on the road with artists that we are fans of is just wild!”

When not on tour, White is in the studio with producers Ross Copperman and Jeremy Stover working on his debut album, which is planned for an early 2016 release.

CMA Fest Day 2 Wrap Up!

DSC05540

Even though we dodged morning showers and then sizzled in afternoon sun, Friday of the 45th Annual CMA Fest was AWESOME!!! We spent a majority of the day down at Riverfront Stages. We caught the tail end of Restless Heart (who’ve still got it), then we settled in for entertainment by Kellie Pickler (who looked and sounded amazing), Eric Paslay, and Charles Esten (that’s Deacon from Nashville).

 

Afterwards we hit-up Brett Eldredge’s fanclub party to see him perform an off-the-cuff set in front of a couple of hundred of his biggest fans.

We enjoyed delish chicken salad sandwiches from Bongo Java before heading down to LP field for a night of amazing concerts by the Oak Ridge Boys, with a Little Big Town surprise during “Elvira,” The Band Perry, Maddie and Tae, Randy Houser, Lee Brice, Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band, and Luke Bryan. Normally, Luke would’ve been our favorite of the night, but since his latest music isn’t our cup of tea, Zac Brown Band took the prize for best performances of the night…Thanks to a rousing rendition of “Chicken Fried” and a killer cover of “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Overall, it was a great day that ended with a party! Off to Day 3 where we’ll be at Riverfront most of the day!!! Check out our photos here.
