Join us at the Bluestone for 92.3 WCOL’s Winter Wonder Jam featuring Michael Ray’s “Get To You” Tour with special guests Love and Theft and Devin Dawson.  Doors open at 8pm.

Michael Ray is known for his break out single, “Kiss You in the Morning”, but has come a long way since then.  This Florida native is bringing his edgy country sound to Columbus for a night to remember.  This will be Ray’s second headlining tour.   It is named after the first single released from his sophomore album, “Get To You”.  He is using skills learned from time spent opening for big name artists and the experiences from his first headlining tour to create the best show he possibly can for all of his fans.

Michael Ray is bringing an incredible line up with him:

Love and Theft is the duo that brought “Angel Eyes” to country music fans in 2012.  Their most recent album, “Whiskey On My Breath” explores new avenues of style and sound.  But it sticks to the basics Love and Theft is known for–high energy and songwriting fueled with emotion.

Devin Dawson is currently breaking into the country music scene.  His hit single “All On Me” is featured on Spotify’s New Boots playlist.  He is getting ready to release his album, “Dark Horse” early next year–come get a sneak peak of some of the material at the show!

This will be a party you won’t want to miss.  Grab a friend, and get ready to spend a night out with 92.3 WCOL and your favorite country music fans at the Bluestone.  Tickets are $30 in advanced and $35 at the door.  So get your tickets now, no reason to wait!

Aaron Lewis at The Bluestone

2nd show added

Country Music artist, Aaron Lewis sells out The Bluestone July 28th and adds another show, July 27th 2017. Aaron Lewis has been playing the Bluestone located at 583 East Broad Street Columbus, Ohio for many years but has never sold it out in 12 hours. The second show was added very quickly after tickets sold in less than 24 hours. The second show for Aaron Lewis will be July 27th 2017 and tickets will go on sale Friday April 14th at 10 AM www.liveatthebluestone.com or on Eventbrite. (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wclt-presents-aaron-lewis-at-the-bluestone-tickets-32442930679)

The country singer announced last year that he would be embarking on a huge tour to promote his first album with Dot Records, Sinner, and set out a massive number of dates for fans to come check out the new music. But rather than quit right at the peak of winter, he decided to roll off of the spirit of his previous sold-out shows through the end of April.

His latest project, Sinner, released back in September, and Lewis contributed to nine of the 11 tracks on the album. Going for a more old-fashioned, rebellious vibe, he felt the need to channel his musical heroes to find the right influence throughout the record.

“I’d like to think that ‘Sinner’ is a newer take on classic, traditional Outlaw Country, Waylon and Merle and Willie, and Hank Jr. and Johnny Cash and all that stuff,” he said. “That was the music I heard a kid, and that’s the Country music that permeated my soul and stuck with me my whole life.” -http://www.soundslikenashville.com/news/aaron-lewis-extends-sinner-tour/

Love and Theft

NYE 2017 Love and Theft

Love and TheftOriginally a trio that also included fellow singer-songwriter Brian Bandas, Love and Theft first galvanized fans in 2009 with the Top 10 hit “Runaway.” That breakthrough success set the stage for their debut album World Wide Open, which also produced the hit single “Dancing In Circles.” After a move from the Disney-affiliated Carolwood label to RCA, Stephen and Eric scored their first #1 single with “Angel Eyes,” which was featured on Love and Theft’s self-titled second album, along with the hits “Runnin’ Out of Air” and “If You Ever Get Lonely.”

The longtime partners agree that their potent musical chemistry is a reflection of their personal rapport. “The thing about us,” Eric asserts,” is that we really are best friends, and that’s helped to get us through the tougher times. At the same time, though, we’re different enough personality-wise that the combination works. Stephen’s naturally a more social person than I am, and I’m a little more introverted. He tends to see the best in every person and every situation, and I’m kind of the opposite. My songwriting’s different from his, and when we’re in the studio, his approach is different from mine. The way we play guitar is different. The way we arrange songs is different. But our differences come together to make something that each of us couldn’t do on his own.”

The pair’s second-nature chemistry led them both to agree that the occasion of their third album called for the bold musical statement that Whiskey On My Breath would ultimately become.

“In some ways, we’ve played it safe in the past, and I think we’re over that now,” Stephen observes. “It’s easy to fall into that when you’re working in the Nashville system and trying to please everybody. But eventually you come around and realize that you need to be true to yourself. I don’t mind that songs like ‘Whiskey On My Breath’ and ‘Everybody Drives Drunk’ may be a little controversial, because they’re honest, and I think that they’ll make people think about how they feel about life.”

“Those songs are both really personal for us,” Eric notes. “They show a side of us that’s legitimately us, and how we’ve grown up and matured in the time that we’ve been in this business. But there are plenty of songs on this album that are just good, fun songs, and that’s still a side of us too.”

Indeed, Whiskey On My Breath makes it apparent how far the duo—who’ve both become husbands and fathers in the six years since they began their recording career—have traveled, and demonstrates that they’re in for the long haul.

“We feel more strongly about this record than anything we’ve ever done,” Eric concludes. “Whatever happens, we’ve made a record that we both love and that we can both stand behind, and that’s a great feeling.”

 

Its going to be a GREAT New Years Eve 2017!

Tucker Beathard Live November 10th 2016

Tucker Beathard Live November 10th 2016

At just 20 years old, singer-songwriter Tucker Beathard already exudes the confidence and swagger of an established artist. It’s probably because music is in his blood. He started playing drums and guitar in a band with his brothers at 10 years old and had an early immersion into songwriting via his dad, two-time BMI “Songwriter of the Year” Casey Beathard. It was Tucker’s rebellious attitude as a teenager that inspired the lyrics for the chart-topping hit “Homeboy” recorded by Eric Church. Not long after making the decision to forgo a baseball scholarship to focus on music, Beathard signed a publishing deal with Big Machine Music and a recording contract with DOT Records. Now he is beginning to carve a path for his own unique and unapologetic sound with lyrics like “Hell no I don’t mind turning heads; Hell yeah I’ll get by living on the edge; Our point of views may never meet; I don’t wanna be you, yeah I know me.” Beathard is working on his debut album and is already booked for shows this summer with superstars Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban. http://tuckerbeathard.com/home

Growing up in a family that excelled at both music and sports — his father is a hit songwriter; his brothers, star quarterbacks — Big Machine Label Group recording artist Tucker Beathard has an unrelenting competitive spirit: He wakes up every day trying to write the perfect song. For Tucker, a self-taught guitarist and drummer, there’s no such thing as “good enough.”   “I love anything with great melodies and I’m drawn to the little things,” Tucker says, rattling off his influences with an artist’s attention to detail. “When I listen to Led Zeppelin, I focus on John Bonham’s drums. Or Joe Walsh’s guitar licks in the Eagles. And Hank Williams Jr.’s ‘Family Tradition’ is as country songwriting as it gets.”  Tucker certainly knows something about family tradition, taking cues from dad Casey Beathard, who wrote Kenny Chesney’s “Don’t Blink” and Eric Church’s “Homeboy.” The latter, in fact, was inspired by Tucker, who admits to going through his own rebellious phase.  Giving up a college baseball scholarship to dive headlong into songwriting, Tucker came out better for his diverse experiences and documented those wild times in the wise-beyond-its-years “Momma and Jesus.” The track is one of many in contention for his debut album, being overseen by producer Angelo Petraglia (Kings Of Leon).   With a rhythmic way of playing guitar, influenced by his innate drumming ability, Tucker has created some of contemporary country music’s most progressive songs. “Rock On,” a song about regretting the girl that got away, is taut in its delivery, with clever turns of phrase. Likewise, “20-10 Tennessee,” a standout, uses a football game as metaphor for a relationship and “Better Than Me” puts a unique spin on an arena-ready breakup anthem, ultimately wishing the best for someone after parting ways.   “I’ve always been a huge fan of deep songs, and I’ve always liked poems,” he says. “I’m an introvert, but writing songs that go beneath the surface allows me the chance to open up a piece of myself.”   As does his engaging live show.  Having played with artists like Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert, Tucker regularly bares his soul in front of a crowd. Despite his reserved demeanor, the stage is where he is most free — it’s his canvas to paint an honest picture of who he is, as both a songwriter and an artist.   “Expressing yourself onstage and putting your emotion into each song is a feeling that is tough to match. It’s your way of letting the world know who you are,” says Tucker, who has one main goal when performing. “Whether it’s ‘My heart is broken’ or ‘Let’s party tonight,’ I want people to feel this is a real dude who knows who he is — and who says it like it is.”

Country Music’s LOCASH will be performing live at The Bluestone on Thursday, November 10th, 2016. Fresh off their #1 Country Music Hit

Locash returns to The Bluestone

Locash returns to The Bluestone

It’s an exciting time to be LOCASH these days. That might very well be one of the biggest understatements in Nashville these days. Already in their career, the duo of Preston Brust and Chris Lucas have enjoyed hit singles, sold-out concert appearances here and abroad, and have tasted the top of the chart as two of Nashville’s quickest-rising songwriters. But, to quote the old saying… You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet.

Recently signing with Reviver Records, the duo is joining forces with some of the biggest names on the Country Music business landscape. Brust says they could feel the team’s energy from the first meeting. “We haven’t felt an energy like this since the day we began our journey. This feels like it has all come together –the right label head, the right promo team, it finally feels like we’ve got all of our ducks in a row for the first time in our lives. We’ve been out there doing the grass roots thing for so long, and to feel it all come together, is so encouraging.”

That part together happened at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon, where the pair worked together in the club’s DJ booth. They talked about their influences – which range from Gospel (Preston’s great-uncle was Gospel legend Albert Brumley) to Rock and Roll bands such as Motley Crue and Quiet Riot. The two also talked about their dreams of a career in the business, which have come true beyond their wildest imagination – though they are far from done writing the chapters to their story.

An integral part of that LOCASH book is their songwriting. “I think that part of what we do reflects our different personalities, and what has happened in our lives,’ says Lucas. “The passing of my father was ‘The Best Seat In The House.’ Preston and I still write things like that. But, a lot of times, as songwriters, you get to go in someone else’s world, and try to think about what you would do in a situation. Some days, I feel like hearing something upbeat, and when there’s a lot of stuff going on in the world, we want to bring something a little fresh and make people want to roll down the window and smile. Then, there are songs that you have for when you’ve loved someone so much in your life, and you don’t want to let them go – like your wife and your kids, we have those songs too. It’s day by day what we write, and I don’t think any of that has changed. I just think the sound of it has evolved. We’re so excited to put it out so people can hear it.”
