When Lee Brice married Sara Reeveley in April 2013, he decide to write the song the couple would dance to for their first dance as husband and wife. The result was “I Don’t Dance,” a beautiful love song that would cause any woman to swoon.

The ACM nominee for male vocalist of the year, released the lyric video for the track to Country Weekly and we are absolutely obsessed with this song.

Mustached Man Monday in Movember

Tyler Farr

For the final Monday in Movember, we decided to spotlight a man who reached a milestone in his career most recently…His first ever platinum single! Tyler Farr is a singer/songwriter from a small town in Missouri. Tyler learned about country music from his stepfather, who played guitar for the legendary George Jones.

Once Tyler realized his love for country music, he moved to Nashville to pursue his dream of becoming a musician. Tyler began working at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, a popular bar in Music City. After working at Tootsie’s for several months, Tyler convinced the management to allow him to perform. Tyler started performing four nights a week, along with maintaining his job as a bouncer.

Tyler also found himself becoming friends with Rhett Akins, who saw Tyler’s talent and wanted to work with him. Tyler ultimately worked with some of the best writers in Nashville and was signed to BNA Records. Tyler has written for Colt Ford and opened for Jerrod Niemann and Lee Brice before releasing his debut album, Redneck Crazy. The title track of Redneck Crazy recently was awarded with RIAA Platinum Certification.

Congratulations, Tyler, on your recent successes! Keep this artist’s name in your minds, ladies and gentlemen. Tyler is certainly going to be a huge part of country music moving forward!

Abbi Scott

Our next Stageit show is upon us and it will be an absolute blast! Keepin’ It Country proudly presents … Abbi Scott! The show will take place on Sunday, December 8th, at 9:00pm EST.

Abbi Scott is a singer/songwriter who was recently deemed as a #CMChat “One to Watch.” Abbi has opened for several of country music’s hottest artists, including Luke Bryan, Lee Brice, Dierks Bentley, Jana Kramer, DJ Miller, David Bradley, Dustin Lynch, and Maggie Rose.

On September 21, 2013, Abbi released her EP, Abbi Scott, which was released on iTunes. Abbi music can be described as high energy, honest, and fresh, while remaining true to her country music roots.

We are so excited to welcome Abbi to our Keepin’ It Country Presents stage!

Additionally, this show is unlike any other! The theme of Abbi’s show is “Ugly Sweaters For the Holidays” and ticket proceeds will be donated to Toys for Tots, an organization that Abbi is ecstatic to assist. During the show, Abbi would love for her audience to sport some ugly sweaters and post pictures on Twitter using the hashtag #KICUglySweaters.

This is going to be a unique and fun show with a whole lot of country and some holiday spice in the mix. Don’t miss out on this fun event for a great cause!

Mustached Man Monday for Movember

Chris Janson

Today, on this Monday in Movember, we introduce you to Chris Janson. Chris is, ironically, in the process of growing out his facial hair in honor of this month, so it definitely made sense for us to spotlight this spirited new artist!

Chris Janson began collaborating as a songwriter at eighteen years of age with classic rock band, Guns N’ Roses. In 2009, Chris recorded two duets with Holly Williams, granddaughter of Hank Williams, Sr., on her album Here with Me. Instead of heading to veterinary school, which was his original plan, Chris made the move that many musicians before him likewise made — the move to Nashville, Tennessee.

Keepin’ It Country’s CMA Predictions

Blake-Miranda-CMA-predictions

The CMA’s are upon as once again, so the Keepin’ It Country Staff narrowed down our picks for the night’s biggest awards. Let us know who you agree with!

Entertainer of the Year Nominees: Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, George Strait, Taylor Swift

Nicole: It’s not an easy choice here, and there’s definitely the obvious inclusion of George Strait for sentimental reasons, but I have to give this to Blake. He played a huge summer tour, anchors the judging panel on The Voice season after season and put out quite a few huge hits. He’s arguably the biggest thing in country right now so I have to give it to him.

Jessica: Luke Bryan has had a huge year, and I think he’s taken one of the top spots in country music right now. You can’t deny those dance moves!

Jennifer: Luke Bryan – With sold out shows across the country and yet another #1 hit song (despite Zac Brown’s disdain for said song), no one is killing it on radio or on the road quite like Luke.

Jeanna: Blake Shelton or Taylor Swift? Both have really helped broaden the country music audience and impact the genre in such a significant way. Taylor is massive with her sold out tours worldwide and cross-over success. Blake is the face of the genre at the present time, and he has helped put country on the map and bring it to focus with The Voice. Luke Bryan had a big year and is a possibility too. However, I feel like it’s Blake’s time for this right now so I’m giving this one to him.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: CMChat’s One to Watch — Abbi Scott

abbi scott.

Abbi Scott is an Indiana teenager who is in her senior year of high school and looking forward to graduation (much like all other high school seniors!). However, Abbi is not your typical high school senior. While Abbi has her face in textbooks, she has her sights set on music, and there is no stopping this country girl from making her dreams come true! Abbi describes herself as “a true country girl, living on twenty-five acres, and . . . in love with the outdoors.” Abbi has been compared to Miranda Lambert, Gretchen Wilson, and Kelly Clarkson, and values these music industry phenoms’ strong work ethic and ability to maintain a sense of humor.
