Courtney Drummey and the Meadows Brothers

Rising country singer-songwriting star hits the stage with roots music duo

(Holyoke, MA, July 18) Courtney Drummey and the Meadows Brothers play a live concert at Gateway City Live, the nightclub venue at Gateway City Arts, on 92 Race Street, Holyoke, MA.

Primed to be the next rising star in the country music scene, Courtney is a 21 year old singer/songwriter with a distinct style of her own that blends her Connecticut and Nashville roots. Courtney recently joined Keith Urban on stage to sing a rendition of his song ‘We Were Us’ at the Xfinity Theater in Hartford, CT. She has also shared the stage with artists such as Jake Owen, Cole Swindell, and Luke Bryan. At Gateway City Live she performs her own originals as well as covers.

Opening the show are Connecticut’s own 2015 New England Music Award Winners “The Meadows Brothers” who were voted best in the state of Connecticut, beating out many talented acts. Ian and Dustin Meadows have been playing music together for most of their lives. Their distinct brand of roots music draws inspiration from a huge list of influences; combining folk, blues, country, and rock n’ roll into what The Boston Globe calls “An engagingly twangy sound all their own.”

Tickets for the show are $8 in advance and can be purchased at www.gatewaycityarts.com or $10 at the door. The show starts at 8:00pm, doors open at 6:00pm. Dinner and drinks are available from the Gateway City Arts Beer Garden and Grill starting at 5:00pm and during the show. For questions and more info please contact Gateway City Arts at hello@gatewaycityarts.com or 413-650-2670.
