A little earlier this evening, we told you about our recent trip to Nashville, to attend BMI’s Rooftop on the Row. We had the pleasure of seeing two great artists on stage at the event. Kalie Shorr was the opener, followed by Morgan Wallen. (Article about Kalie’s performance here).
Morgan is certainly not new to our readers. The more than a dozen articles we’ve posted about this up-and-coming country artist include a January 2017 interview (if you missed it, you can go back and read it by clicking here).
This was our first opportunity to see Morgan live, and hopefully it won’t be our last. From the minute he jumped onto the stage, everyone knew they were in for a great night. He has so much energy, it just spilled out into the crowd. He opened with “Whatcha Know About That”, a great song that I think should be a single. He sang “Chasing You”, one of my absolute favorite Morgan Wallen songs, and I was very happy to hear him do “Make It Easy”, a song he wrote which became a No. 1 single for Jason Aldean. His set included “Happy Hour”, “Play Something Country”, “Little Rain”, “Whiskey Glasses,” “Up, Down,” and “The Way I Talk.”
Morgan’s performance also included a medley of rock and rap, that I’m thinking was from the 90’s. But, once we get away from country, I’m pretty much lost. (Please don’t give me a test, because I’m sure I won’t know the answers). I think an artist knows he has everything under control when he can look out from the stage and his audience dancing, smiling, and singing along.
Kelly Ford and Ty Bentli, from Ty, Kelly and Chuck Mornings were on hand to serve as emcee for the night. We all enjoyed meeting them, and of course they were great on stage, bringing out the artists.
Sponsors for this series are George Dickel Tennessee Whiskey, NASH FM 103.3 and 95.5 NASH ICON. Additional sponsors for the July 17 event included YETI, Texas Roadhouse, Royalty Exchange, Twisted Tea and Topo Chico.
We always try to add a few photos at the end of any article about a concert, and we are going to do the same with Morgan. I’m going to include a few of his band, too. They were great. And, I apologize for not getting their names to share with all of you.
