Country Music On Campus

St. Rose Country Night

One of the coolest things about my job is exposing people to country music and promoting our genre. Through the years, I’ve been lucky to present and host country dance parties at colleges and schools around the upstate New York area.

We recently dropped by the College of St. Rose in Albany for a special Country Night, where over 75 students jumped in to take line dance lessons and enjoy a great night of hot country music.

We chatted with Meghan Kiely, a Junior at the College of Saint Rose and the musical entertainment chairperson on the Students Events Board, about the first big Country Night at the College of St. Rose.

Why did the students want to bring country music to the Campus of St. Rose?

We wanted to bring country music to campus because not everyone has been exposed to it all of their lives, and many people don’t even know what line dancing is! We wanted to bring a different cultural event to our campus. Since it’s such a fun, and simple genre of dance, we knew that it would be easy for everyone to follow along and participate. Even for those students who aren’t huge fans of country music, there was still songs played that they knew!

Why do you think the students enjoyed country line dancing?

The students definitely enjoyed country line dancing. There was not one person participating that did not have a smile on their face. I think that the students really appreciated an event like this that appeals to a whole different crowd. Whether they stayed to learn one dance, or all five, everyone had an absolute blast.

Who are some of your favorite singers in country music?

Some of my favorites are Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, and Toby Keith.
