Drake White and The Big Fire’s “Muddy Water-inspired soul-country” (Taste of Country) is resonating with artists and fans alike. White’s music, including his Top-40 single “It Feels Good,” has attracted some major fans in both Little Big Town and now Zac Brown Band. Enough so that both groups tapped the DOT/BMLG recording artist for their respective tours this fall with dates starting this Friday at New York City’s Citi Field with ZBB.

“A change would do you good,” Sheryl Crow sang at the start of a huge event in Nashville Monday night celebrating Rolling Stone Films and Rolling Stone Country, and presented by Patrón. Her 1997 hit was a fitting choice to kick off the party in the town she has called home for a decade now, making the huge change from busy Los Angeles to a quiet Nashville ranch and also making the gutsy (and widely praised) leap from rock to country with 2013’s Feels Like Home album. Nashville has also become a second home to Rolling Stone, with last summer’s launch of our country vertical, and the city serves as the backdrop for the sixth installment of Rolling Stone Films’ “Mastering the Craft” series presented by Patrón, with the latest mini-documentary looking back on Crow’s extraordinary rise from shy Missouri music student to Michael Jackson’s backup singer to a rock & roll icon.
Dot Records recording artists Maddie & Tae brought the house down at their album release event on Tuesday night in Nashville. The dynamic duo performed songs from their self-written debut album START HERE, which is available everywhere on August 28.
