Keepin’ It Country Presents: Abbi Scott!

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!

Keepin’ It Country Presents … Logan Mize – Take 2!

Logan Mize

Logan Mize has opened for artists like Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton, The Band Perry, and Dierks Bentley, and on Thursday, October 24th, at 8:00pm EST, Logan is bringing his talents back to the Keepin’ It Country Presents stage to share with his fans some new music and stories, as well as old fan favorites!

Logan recently released his new single, Used Up, which he is actively promoting at this time. Logan describes Used Up as a track that began as “a fairly intense marital dispute between me and Jill (my wife). I can’t remember what it was about, but I’ve been joking with my live audiences that I stormed off like Taylor Swift to go write a song about it … Moral of the story I suppose is: listen to your wife more.”

Logan is currently finishing up his next album and completing the writing process. This album, which Logan describes as “the most accurate representation of me to date,” will likely be released in early 2014. Don’t miss this Stageit show … you never know what new songs will make their way on to the setlist!

We are thrilled to welcome Logan back to our Keepin’ It Country stage, and hope to see you all there! To purchase your Pay What You Choose ticket for this Thursday’s show, click here.

Two Acts, Two Duos, One Night, One Great Cause

j&k2sr

As you all know, we are having our next Stageit show this Sunday, October 20th, at 8:00pm EST with one of our staff’s favorite duos, JillandKate. However, the night just got even better, as Jill and Kate have teamed up with country music duo, Two Story Road, and the two duos will share the Keepin’ It Country Blog Presents Stageit stage as our first collaborative show to date!

We have introduced you to Jill Pickering and Kate Rapier in the past, but the girls have done so much since our initial exclusive interview with them exactly one year ago that we need to boast about some of their achievements and projects. When we introduced you to JillandKate, the girls were working hard on promoting their album Heart of Stone. The girls continue to perform their music, while continuing to entertain their fans with new and unreleased songs in their catalogs, blogging, making music videos, creating jewelry, and flying up the iTunes charts. They have also released the live version of Heart of Stone, which continues to prove why these girls are on their way to being one of the hottest duos in Nashville.

Two Story Road is categorized as a “new” country duo, but make no mistake — Jamelle and Brandon are no strangers to the country music scene! Both Belmont University graduates, Jamelle and Brandon have each hit the road with some of country music’s biggest acts and have worked with some of Nashville’s most prestigious executives. Jamelle has worked closely with Tommy Sims (Garth Brooks, Eric Clapton, and Sheryl Crow), but perhaps her biggest gig to date has been touring as a background vocalist for country powerhouse, Carrie Underwood. Brandon is also quite familiar with touring with extremely well-known artists, as he hit the road with Gretchen Wilson and Danny Gokey, also hitting the stage with Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, and Sugarland. After years of hitting the road separately, the talented couple decided to merge their talents, working with Tommy Sims and Mark Bright (Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, and Sara Evans), and are ready to travel their future musical path as a united front. As so eloquently stated on http://www.twostoryroad.com, the Fraleys bring to the table “[t]wo incredible stories, finally traveling down the same road.”

We are so excited to see these two duos come together on Sunday night on our very own stage. This is history in the making and would hate for any of you to miss this event!

Remember, all ticket proceeds are benefitting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, so not only are you going to experience fantastic music, but you will be supporting an amazing cause!

Keepin’ It Country Presents: JillandKate – Concert for a Cure

JillandKate Concert for a Cure

We are incredibly excited to announce the return of Nashville duo, JillandKate, to our Keepin’ It Country Presents Stage! Keepin’ It Country Presents is teaming up with JillandKate to combat cancer with our first ever “Concert for a Cure.”

This show, the first in our Concert for a Cure series, will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), a foundation which increases awareness for blood cancers and raises funds for research of those cancers. “One person in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer approximately every four minutes. An estimated combined total of 149,990 people in the United States will be diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma in 2013. New cases of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma will account for 9 percent of the 1,660,290 new cancer cases diagnosed in the United States this year.”

Keepin’ It Country Presents…JAMES OTTO!

64847_519709268072486_612335836_n

No folks, your eyes did not deceive you! We are bringing you THE Grammy nominated, CMA and ACM award winning, James Otto!

Otto hails from the great Northwest, which hasn’t turned out a huge number of country stars, though it hasn’t been for lack of local interest. “Country music is actually really big up there. I know when people think of Washington state they think of Seattle, but the side of WA that I’m from, which is the high plains/desert side, is all straight-up agricultural.” Not that he isn’t equally proud of being a Nashvillian, which you might guess from his ability to pinpoint the date he made the move (“thirteen years ago, August 4”).
