Country Now, the first original Country music and lifestyle-dedicated YouTube channel will launch the new program “Hear & Now: Live From Blackbird Studio.” Intimate performances will be recorded live from Nashville’s historic Blackbird Studio. The first taping kicked off Jan. 28 with Casey James, followed by weekly episodes from Love and Theft, Frankie Ballard, Craig Campbell, Brandy Clark, Will Hoge and Eli Young Band set for Feb. 27. The performances, combined with artist commentary, will be posted weekly.

“Eli Young Band’s music connects with their fans in a live setting,” said John Zarling, SVP/Partnership Marketing & Promotion Strategy, Big Machine Label Group. “The team at Country Now knows how important it is to document moments that matter on film, and it is because of this attention to detail that you feel like you’re sitting in the room watching Mike, James, Chris and Jon perform. We can’t wait for EYB fans, and music lovers in general, to see this performance.”

Ballard’s “Hear & Now: Live From Blackbird Studio” episode includes “Sunshine & Whiskey,” the title track from his Feb. 11 album release, as well as “Helluva Life,” “It Don’t Take Much” and “Drinky Drink.”
