Drew Baldridge gave an ecstatic performance for his 3rd annual Drew Year’s Eve event in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel’s music venue, Vinyl, with special guests Neal McCoy, Tim Nichols, Monty Criswell and Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton. He performed his current single “Guns & Roses,” along with a preview of six new tracks.

The set started with “Goodyears On Gravel,” a song that describes what home feels like for Baldridge stating, ”It’s 100% what I feel when I go back to Illinois.”

After hearing “Lonely” and “Cool Like That,” the audience knew they were seeing something special. The new music continued with “Gentle Man,” “Heartbreak Waiting to Happen,”  followed by “Tomorrow,” a disco-feeling party track that had everyone in the room up and moving.

Radio friends in attendance had rave reviews of the new music.

“Country music always tells a story, but Drew Baldridge brings the personalities of their narratives to life on stage. #DrewBelievers,” said Jason McCollim, SVPP of iHeartRadio/Colorado Springs.

“Drew’s growth as an artist and performer is undeniable,” said Ashley Wilson, newly-minted PD at WNOE/New Orleans. “This guy is a star!”

Jon Shannon from WPOR/Portland said: “Drew stands out from the crowd. This guy is the total package.”

With the current single “Guns & Roses” – a big crowd favorite – rolling up the charts, more and more momentum gathers for Baldridge as he completely wins in person and on stage.

“Guns and Roses is a hit record,” said KRTY/San Jose GM Nate Deaton, “2018 is the year we’ll see him break through.”

“Definitely the one to watch in the coming year,” added KEEY/Minneapolis APD/MD Levi Jessen. “The new music we heard at Drew Year’s Eve surely indicates it’s going to be his best year.”

Cold River Records Hosts Their 3rd Annual Drew Year’s Eve In Las Vegas

Cold Rivers Records hosted their 3rd annual Drew Year’s Eve event in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel’s music venue, Vinyl, today featuring Drew Baldridge with special guests Neal McCoy, Tim Nichols, and Monte Criswell joining him.

The day began with a cocktail party complete with mimosas, bloody mary’s, and Dunkin Donuts in Cold Rivers Records’ suite in the Hard Rock Hotel.  Followed by a nice buffet lunch of shrimp & grits, bbq, apple pie, and much more in Vinyl inside the hotel just before the show began.

Starting things off, Neal McCoy hosted the event and introduced Drew Baldridge, Tim Nichols, and Monte Criswell to the stage for an acoustic round.  They sang their hit songs like “Live Like You Were Dying” and more.

Neal McCoy closed out the acoustic round to sing his new patriotic song that is very important to him.

Drew Baldridge then took the stage for an energetic and entertaining full band performance to finish out the fun-filled event.  Neal McCoy rejoined the show to sing along with Drew his hit song, “Wink”.

We finished out the show dancing along as Baldridge performed his song, “Dance With Ya”, but just before the event concluded, a very special guest appeared at the door.  Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton, dropped by with 2 Vegas showgirls arm in arm and joined Drew, Neal, and the band on the stage.

Thank you so much to Karen Gale of Loudmouth PR & Cold River Records for including us this year! Had such a great time and appreciate it very much!

The weekend is not quite done, but could not imagine spending New Year’s weekend ANY better way than with the incredibly-kind & gracious staff of Cold River Records and Drew Baldridge in Las Vegas.

Find Drew Baldridge’s newest single at country radio, “Guns And Roses”, and give this amazing, authentic, and talented artist your support.  New music in the works to be released very soon.  Be on the lookout for it!
