Congratulations To Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney For Record Breaking Ticket Sales in New York City Area
This is fantastic news. A couple of country music icons have “schooled” everyone down in the city who said that “nobody likes that redneck music down here”. Check this out
According to a story on Billboard.com, two country music icons – Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney have broken a record for ticket sales at Met Life Stadium (technically in NJ, but it still counts as the New York City area)
Quoting from the story:
That’s mind boggling, considering that not too long ago, I had a conversation with my brother-in-law, Rich Scalia who lives in the East Brunswick area. He told me that he was really starting to love CMT and country music in general, but couldn’t find a radio station down there that played the songs!
Well, we’re getting there, Rich. Townsquare Media, our parent company, has a sister station down in the Atlantic City area -WPUR. I know you’re not near there, buddy, but you can find it on RadioPup, our free smartphone app.
So there you go: a great story AND a great promotional opportunity for country music. Time to rewrite “New York, New York” and put a little twang in it. (I’ll get working on that)
