Popular In Country: "Strong" - Will Hoge

I'm sure you've seen Chevy's latest ad campaign.  They highlight the American midwest, a cowboy lifestyle built on hard work and dignity, something rarely seen in America lately.  Behind the ad is the voice of Will Hoge.  He has a strong sound and a sort of country/rock soul.  Ever since the ad came out I needed to know who this guy was and what the name of the song was.  "Strong" has earned Hoge notoriety lately, however it isn't his only hit.  Hoge just released an album back on Oct. 15 - "Never Give In".  The album is full of hits including this most popular track "Strong"and we highly recommend you check it out.

Eric Church - "The Outsiders" Release & Album Expectations

The Outsiders Are Poised to Take Over Country Music

     Country got a little more badass yesterday with the release of Eric Church's "The Outsiders" to iTunes. Ever since his rugged tracks from his Chief album hit it big, Church has been the poster-boy for rocking country music and "The Outsiders" solidifies this position on top.  In his latest single, Church takes his signature bad boy attitude to the next level by mixing country music with elements of Tom Petty (listen to when he says "and the regulators born to regulate") and the Red Hot Chili Peppers (check out the bass solo towards the end of the tune).  This makes for a crossover tune that shows musical maturity that bodes well for the future of Eric Church's recording and performance career.
     Above is a video Church released via Facebook last week that got the Church Choir faithful excited for some new content after more than two years of patient waiting.  This new release does the job of satiating his fans' hunger for the time being but now the focus will turn to the expectation of a new album.  We expect Church to really carve out his own niche in country music as the bad boy rocker with both his latest anthem and the upcoming album.  Church already has a cult following in country-rock circles but if his upcoming is as impressive as Chief, we can expect to see Church headlining a major tour this upcoming summer.  Church has all the tools to become entertainer of the year in the future, despite being a self-proclaimed country music "outsider".  As you lay in wait for Church's new content, get jacked up by putting "The Outsiders" on repeat with the volume up as high as it can go.

Check this tune on out iTunes Here and just imagine this one being played in concert. Can you say electric?

Weekend Drink Pick

Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale

Every year in August, Shipyard Brewery of Portland, Maine releases a seasonal specialty brew - Pumpkinhead Ale.  It's the perfect compliment to the change in season, as nothing goes better with falling leaves than this beer.  It tastes like fall in a bottle, and is a New England favorite.  It's quite simply delicious, and a must have throughout Autumn.  To entice your taste buds even more, drink it out of glass that is garnished with a cinnamon and sugar rim.  It's so different than just your typical Bud Light or Coors Light that you might be used to drinking regularly, and we can guarantee it'll definitely be one of your favorites for the fall season.  Not to mention it goes very nicely with a bonfire and some country music.

Check out Shipyard's website for more information on Pumpkinhead Ale as well as other brews HERE

13 Bars Rising Star: Levi Riggs

Back in mid-August Levi Riggs released his first full album, "I'm Good".  He's been in the country game for awhile, releasing his first 2 EP's back to back in August of 2011 - "There's Still A Place For That" and "Hillbilly Superstar".  However, both those EP's were preceded by 2 singles released back in the winter and summer of 2010 - "F-150" and "Tailgate Time".  So as you can see he's no new-comer, and he's pretty damn good as a matter of fact.  Riggs has performed with many of country's biggest names, including Jason Aldean and Jake Owen.  He's one of country music's rising stars, and sounds very similar to Craig Morgan.  If you haven't heard of this guy before, be sure to check him out, he's no joke and will be one of country music's household names in the near future.
