|Nashville Crush @ Star Spangled Spectacular July 4, 2013|
It all came to pass right at 7:00,No serious injuries were sustained but I believe a few red necks may have been strained, some boots were over stomped, and someone reported they found themselves yelling "Hell Yea"(something they had never done) when the "Nashville Crush" (new and promising country music artist) took the stage.And there was a couple guest appearances by Jessica Kenney.
"These guys got it right" I heard someone say, "boy that bass player is into it isn't he" came from another as I watched in awe of this up and coming band from Ohio. I pride myself on knowing good music and good performers as anyone who has read my posts and predictions on American Idol and The Voice(click above link to view them and see my accuracy) and with that I have to say I do agree with them. They got it right, I mean they have everything country music fans want in their country. I was especially impressed with their harmony.(note to Nashville Crush: would love to hear your rendition of "Seven bridges road") When it comes to musical talent, these guys have that too. I saw and heard some acoustic guitar, electric guitar and lead,banjo,fiddle,steel guitar,bass, and drums. Nashville Crush says they love hearing people tell 'em how they normally don't like country but love Nashville Crush. Not to take away from Nashville Crush but, in my opinion, when someone says they don't like an entire genre of music, they have never truly listened to it. They go by one or two they have heard and say "I don't like country" Country music has so many facets, it's like a fine cut diamond.
No matter your likes or dislikes, Nashville Crush has it covered. Last night on stage they covered Rascal Flatts, Alabama, and even Kenny Loggins "Footloose" These guys pride themselves on their unique and diverse backgrounds which is what they put in the mix and it came out Nashville Crush.They bring experiences from bluegrass, country,rock,heavy metal and blues.
ie: Marshall Miller - Marshall has played guitar for over 24 years. He is an award winning
guitarist and was even a finalist in the 2011 GuitarCenter.com “King of the Blues”
These guys, in my opinion, are what Travis Tritt was singing about when he said "put some drive in your country" was what one fan told me.
