Watch All Seven Taste of Country RISERS Original Performances
You've now met all seven Taste of Country RISERS, artists poised to break in a big way in 2017. Now treat yourself to a concert of all seven original performances! Some of these are songs you know, most are songs you need to know. All seven will make you fans.
Aubrie Sellers and Brett Young are first. Sellers, the daughter of Lee Ann Womack, performed her new single "Liar, Liar," a bluesy country grinder that is a perfect reflection of her alt-rock meets country style. It's clear why Miranda Lambert chose her to open her 2017 tour.
Young's "In Case You Didn't Know" is on its way to becoming a radio hit, but you'll no doubt appreciate this performance. The California-raised singer's sensitive side dominates the song — it makes you wanna go give him a big ol' hug!
Kalie Shorr's solo performance of "Nothin' New," Jacob Davis's funky performance of "What I Wanna Be" and Runaway June's hit song "Lipstick" are three very original originals from our first generation of RISERS. You'll also find Brandon Lay's "Back on the Wagon" and vocal quartet Farewell Angelina's gorgeous harmonies on "If It Ain't With You."
The first generation of RISERS were selected after conversations with radio and streaming programmers, as well as live venue operators, fans and country music media. These are seven newcomers with a high ceiling. Be sure to subscribe to the Taste of Country YouTube channel for more from the RISERS video shoot.
