WMZQ Country Music Concert

Last Friday, I went to the Fillmore in Silver Spring see a country music showcase sponsored by WMZQ, my local country music radio station. It was AWESOME! All of the singers were really great, and the crowd was so into it, singing along with every song (Shawna from Thompson Square said, "I don't know if it's because it's Friday night or because we're in Maryland, but you guys are awesome!). Here are the artists and songs that I heard.

Joe Nichols
Nichols was the "host" of the night. He is just as handsome in real life as he is in his music videos. He was so much fun to watch live!

Gimme That Girl
Sunny and 75
Tequila Makes Her Clothes Come off
and he sang his own country version of Sir Mixalott's Baby Got Back.


Chase Rice
I saw Chase Rice at the Fillmore in 2013 when he had his own show, but I was excited to see him perform again. But I must say, I was disappointed that he didn't wear white jeans. He is SO fine!

How She Rolls
Cruise (he helped write the Florida Georgia Line song)
Nelly's version of Cruise
Ready Set Roll

 Eric Paslay
I also saw Eric Paslay perform earlier when he opened for the Eli Young Band at Rams Head Live! in Baltimore. He, too, was just as much fun to see a second time!

Friday Night
Less Than Whole
Song About a Girl

Craig Campbell
Cambell is not a name I instantly recognize, but when he started singing, I thought, "Oh, I know that song!" I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for his music in the future!

Outta My Head
Keep Them Kisses Comin'

Thompson Square
I think this married duo is too cute! They harmonize very well together, and I'd love to see them again sometime!

Everything I Shouldn't Be Thinking About
If I Didn't Have You
Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not

The group finished the show by singing Family Tradition. All in all, a very fun night!

AND on top of a great concert, a portion of the ticket sales went to support the American Heart Association. The sold out show raised $10,000 dollars for the cause!
