GNA Hotshots! Fans Pics w Travis Denning and Ja Rule & Ashanti in Toga

We celebrated the kickoff to Fall in Upstate NY on Saturday with the Taste of Toga Music Festival at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds.

The weather was a bit cool, but there was great food from local restaurants to keep our bellies full, and we washed them down with tasty drinks from some of our favorite breweries and wineries.

And the music wasn't bad either!

The afternoon got off to a fun, engaging start with Shake, Rattle & Roll Dueling Pianos, which was followed by rising country star Travis Denning, and then it was throwback hip-hop/pop/R&B legends Ja Rule and Ashanti closing the show!

Thanks to all who came out and supported this Town Square event.

GNA Hotshots - A Look Back at the Summer of Country Music in Upstate NY

It was an incredible summer for country shows in the area, and we were fortunate to have some of the biggest stars in the industry come to the Capital Region.

Things started to warm up this summer when Thomas Rhett and Cole Swindell brought the Hometeam Tour to MVP Arena in June and wrapped when The Chief, Eric Church came to town for the first time in a decade with rising superstar Lainey Wilson.

But MVP Arena and SPAC weren't the only venues rocking out in the summer of 2023, Jackson Dean and Dylan Scott played Pinehaven Country Club in Guilderland, Lee Brice hit up a historic venue in Albany, and country legend Tracy Byrd played the Schoharie County Sunshine Fair.

GNA was there for all of these shows, plus a whole lot more, and our amazing photographer Claude Sawyer was front and center, to bring you all the action from the pit.
