Kane Brown made his way to North Carolina this past Friday to perform at Johnny and June’s in Winston-Salem, but I wasn’t there for Kane Brown. I didn’t drive 180 miles round trip or get stuck in 2 hours worth of traffic on the way there for Kane Brown. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike him, I’ve just never really jumped on that bandwagon.
So why then was I at Johnny and June’s this past Friday night? The answer is simple: Ross Coppley.
A Lexington, North Carolina native who made the move to Nashville a few years ago opened up the show. Ross Coppley is an artist that has always stayed close to his roots. His lyrics are real and genuine and hold true to everyone singing them back to him even if all for different reasons.
His high energy performances and veteran stage presence along with a talented group to back him make for a show you don’t want to miss no matter what it takes for you to get there. His newest single “Wildfire” is climbing the charts and that song is only the tip of the iceberg for what this guy is capable of.
Below is a montage of a few of the songs sung during Coppley’s performance on Friday night. See for yourself what you’ve been missing.
