Music stars rave about Stage 17 at Cumulus station in New York (Includes interview)

Country star Easton Corbin remarked, “”I’m looking forward to it. They’ve really done a really great job up there, and it sounds great.”

American Idol Season 7 winner and rock singer-songwriter David Cook said, “Honestly, I love coming here. To be able to perform here is pretty chill. The new Stage 17 is great,” he said.

Rising country singer Jordan Davis said, “I love it. We got a chance to come up here and visit, and once I saw the set-up of Stage 17, I was really looking forward to it.”

Pop-rock group The Script said, “It was great! We haven’t played in over two years, but it was so much fun to just get out there and play. It was nice! New York is like the flagship city, so you don’t want to screw it up in New York.”

Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw complimented Stage 17 for looking “great,” in his inaugural show on that platform back in April, and he expressed his gratitude for the radio station, for always being good to him.

Country star Canaan Smith praised Stage 17 for being “amazing.” “New York City and country music should have happened a long time ago, and I’m glad it’s popping right now, and I’m a part of it,” he said.
