New monthly livestream offers intimate insight to artists’ lives off the road
Live Nation’s premiere family of country music festivals is launching a special monthly livestream series Monday (Oct 12), with the announcement that Live Nation Presents: Country Conversations at 8 pm ET. Hosted by Brian O’Connell (President of Country Touring and creator of Live Nation’s family of country music festivals), the first episode will feature special guests Jon Pardi and Lindsay Ell. The new monthly series will offer fans at home the opportunity to catch up with their favorite artists as well as enjoy special performances. Each episode will livestream across Live Nation’s Facebook page, as well as Watershed Music And Camping Festival, Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival and Faster Horses Music Festival‘s respective Facebook platforms. Fans can also watch the series online on Live Nation’s homepage at LiveNation.com.
“We wanted to start Country Conversations because our fans at our festivals and on tour are so important to us, they’re the reason why we do this. We also have a unique platform to help keep us connected and ease how much we are missing them this year,” explains Brian O’Connell. “Being able to check in once a month with artists and fans is going to be fun, and I’m personally looking forward to trying to bring some unique performances with some of my friends, while continuing to innovate this series.’’
Live Nation’s premiere family of country festivals established across North America include Watershed in George, WA; Faster Horses in Brooklyn, MI and Tortuga Music Festival in Ft. Lauderdale. Each festival is a three-day weekend with the genre’s biggest names heading them up and all of which incorporate a unique twist on the country festival.
