Runaway June Is Bringing Christmas To Our Troops In a Virtual Concert

Runaway June is helping to bring some holiday cheer to military members and their families with their virtual When I Think About Christmas concert, presented by Armed Forces Entertainment.

Due to the ongoing pandemic restrictions, this is the first time in several decades that troops will not be entertained in person. So, Armed Forces Entertainment partnered with Runaway June to create an experience unlike any other for the deployed men and women of the service branches. The holiday concert was filmed in Nashville before an audience of socially distanced family members of the Tennessee National Guard and 5th Special Forces Group.

Runaway June members Naomi Cooke, Natalie Stovall, and Jennifer Wayne were all honored to take part in this special event, and expressed their appreciation for the troops, “Thank you so much for what you do, what you’ve done, the sacrifices that you’ve made, the sacrifices that your families have made over the years…Being able to exercise our rights to our freedom…we wouldn’t have that without our men and women that serve this country, so thank you.”

The live audience and people who view the virtual concert are treated to the trio delivering heart-warming renditions of new and classic Christmas songs including  “Let It Snow,” “O Holy Night,” and “Sleigh Ride,” as well as songs from their new EP, featuring the title track, “When I Think About Christmas,” and another original “Christmas on the Radio.” Mixed in with the holiday tunes, Runaway June performed songs from their own catalog, including their hit “I Can Buy My Own Drinks,” “Wild West,” “Lipstick” and their current single, “We Were Rich.”

When I Think About Christmas is an original virtual concert available now through Saturday, January 2, 2021 exclusively on the Armed Forces Entertainment YouTube Channel, and you can see it here…

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
