Farmingville - On September 7, Show Dog-Universal Music recording country artist Joel Crouse played for “Vets Rock” in Farmingville, New York.
It was presented by “My Country 96.1 FM” and this show pays tribute to the men and women in the U.S. military. Crouse opened for such musical acts as Rachel Holder, The Farm, Florida Georgia Line, Love and Theft, Thompson Square and headliner Brantley Gilbert.
The singer-songwriter opened his six-song set with “Even the River Runs.”
“Hey. How are you guys doing,” he shouted. “It feels good to be at the ‘Vets Rock’ concert.”
The country singer continued, “My name is Joel Crouse and I am originally from Massachusetts.”
Crouse noted that his follow-up vocal “Don’t Tell Me” is a “beer-drinking song” and a “cool” tune. “How are you doing Long Island?” he asked his New York concertgoers.

He concluded his set with his breakthrough single and Top 35 country hit “If You Want Some,” where he was able to get the crowd on their feet.
