The one-of-a-kind online series, KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY PRESENTS, will showcase what country music is known for – its stories in its songs – through performances with the artists live from their homes and tour buses. The concerts are presented by STAGEIT.COM. Each concert will be streamed live via webcam and give fans the chance to get to know their favorite new artists through a live chat and private pay-per-view events. Each event will be at a low cost and with limited tickets available.
