Aldean, McGraw, Brooks & Dunn gig at FarmBorough

Wednesday, January 20, 2016 – Jason Aldean, Brooks & Dunn, Brantley Gilbert, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw and Thomas Rhett will play the second edition of FarmBorough in New York City.

The Live Nation Entertainment and Founders Entertainment collaboration will be a two-stage festival on June 17-19 for a second year on Randall's Island.

Kacey Musgraves, A Thousand Horses, Billy Currington, Lonestar, David Nail and Eric Paslay all will play with more artists yet to be named.

Festival passes will go on-sale on Jan. 29 at 10a a.m. eastern at FarmBoroughFestival.com.

"Since the gates closed on FarmBorough last year, we've been working towards today and how to come back even stronger than FarmBorough's first year," said Brian O'Connell Live Nation President of Country Touring. "Having the heavyweight power of such huge and distinct names as well artists that I think will be the genre's next big superstars on the bill helps ease the pressure a little bit of putting on a festival in the greatest city in the world. I can't wait to get back out there and continue to make our mark on the Big Apple."

"We made history last year by launching New York City's first ever major country music festival," said co-founder and partner at Founders Entertainment, Jordan Wolowitz. "The amazing lineup for FarmBorough 2016 speaks for itself, and we can't wait to show everyone what's in store for June. It's gonna be awesome."

The first year of FarmBorough drew more than 40,000 people.

CD review - 9 Hollywood may be pushing a broadminded agenda where there are more genders than one can even count, but in Jason Aldean's world, there are only two: tough guys, and the women that love them. There's no confusion it's a guy in the "Camouflage Hat," for example. Also, nothing is said or done without also washing it down with alcohol. The opener,"Tattoos and Tequila," breaks it down into tattoos to remember, and tequila to forget. Within its booze for every ...
CD review - Reboot Brooks and Dunn return with the duo's first studio album in a dozen years. Sort of. That's because they revisit a dozen of their hits (leaving a bunch behind) with contemporary country singers. "Reboot" is a cross between a tribute album and a redo, and overwhelmingly, the idea works. The general idea is that the guest artist will trade lines with Brooks or Dunn. One could surmise that Brooks & Dunn did this kind of album to introduce these chestnuts in an attempt to ...
