NEW YORK'S ONLY COUNTRY MUSIC STATION NASH FM 94.7 AND BARCLAYS CENTER PRESENT FIRST NASH BASH CONCERTFeb 23, 2015
BROOKLYN (February 23, 2015) –New York's #1 Country music station NASH FM 94.7 and Barclays Center will present their first-ever NASH BASH Country concert on Tuesday, March 24 as part of their new partnership. Country artist Cole Swindell will headline the star-studded show at Cushman & Wakefield Theater at Barclays Center with additional performances by Country stars Gloriana, Michael Ray and Jana Kramer.
The March 24 NASH BASH is the first in the live content partnership between Cumulus and Barclays Center that will bring at least two concerts annually to the Brooklyn venue. NASH FM 94.7 is the flagship station for Cumulus’s NASH lifestyle and entertainment brand. The NASH brand has original programming that lives on more than 100 Country radio stations around the country. Nash also owns Nash Country Weekly Magazine and NASH TV.
In September 2014, Barclays Center launched its Country in Brooklyn platform by hosting Billboard's reigning 'Top Country Artist' Luke Bryan for the arena's first Country show, which sold out.
"We are looking forward to launching the NASH BASH series and initiating our partnership with NASH FM 94.7," said Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark. "This relationship will help us tap into the burgeoning Country music fanbase in the New York City area and grow our Country in Brooklyn platform."
"We are thrilled to bring NASH into Brooklyn and onto the stage at Barclays Center," said John Dickey, Executive Vice President of Content and Programming for Cumulus. "This NASH BASH will be a must-see for New York's Country music fans, including the over one million NASH FM 94.7 weekly listeners."
