York, Pa is a fairly small town, but their premier country radio station Froggy 107.7 hosts a week long free concert series at The York Fair each year. They’ve hosted acts such as Lauren Alaina, Kelsea Ballerini, and even Eric Church.
Sunday’s lineup included Red Bow recording artist Brooke Eden and Sony Nashville’s Kane Brown.
Eden, dressed like a super star, took the stage with such pose. Her vocals are extremely crafted and her stage presence roars with star quality. Still up and coming, Eden performs like a natural. Although her look is classy and elegant, her personality mirrors a redneck girl at heart.
“Daddy’s Money” is a clear representation of the songstress and her character. However, “Diamonds” shines her inner diva bright. Although, if you want to know how Eden wiggled her way into country music “American Dreamin’” is a good place to start. As the industry becomes harder for women in country music, Eden just gets better and stronger as an artist.
Kane Brown is one of the hottest country acts right now. After his youtube videos of cover songs went viral, he found a home with Sony Music Nashville.
Kane Brown is a young Georgia native who has seen some tragedy in his life including abuse and homelessness. His story is daunting and heart felt. His music? Meaningful.
He modestly took the stage with a smile that was sincere and golden. He sat on a black stool where he flawlessly sang songs such as “Pull It Off” and “Better Place” to one of the biggest crowds The York Fair has ever seen. He was serene, but a little hesitant. Aren’t all the best artists though?
Quirky and reserved is a way to describe Kane Brown and Edgar Allen Poe who is legendary in today’s time. Now, I’m not comparing Brown to a mastermind like Poe…wait? Okay, you caught me! Some of the best poets are quiet and sheltered and if Brown’s music was art, it would be the Mona Lisa.
A humbled Brown performed his new song “Found You” with such belief and “Cold Spot” was executed beautifully. Kane Brown has made an impact here in country music and he is here to stay, talent and all.
