New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) Hill Country Live, NYC's go-to destination for Americana, alt-country, and roots music, brings Saturday Night Live's house band soul singer Christine Ohlman, Kenny Chesney's hand-picked "Next Big Thing" Curtis Grimes, Billboard's "Artist on the Verge" Connor Christian, and many more to their 26th St roadhouse this March.

Mar 9 - Connor Christian & Southern Gothic - Equal parts modern troubadours, back road poets and outlaw rockers, Connor Christian & Southern Gothic create gritty, soulful songs of experience, with a dustbowl sensibility. The band was recently named an "Artist on the Verge" by Billboard.

Mar 13 - Cory Morrow - A native of Houston inspired by Texas songwriting greats like Robert Earl Keen and Townes Van Zandt, Morrow has recorded with the likes of Pat Green and Owen Temple in his 15-year career. When he first started out, Morrow set about creating personal music that harkened back to the heyday of Willie Nelson's progressive country movement in the 70's, and he continues that tradition with 2012's 'Live at Billy Bob's Texas.'

Mar 15 - Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez - The blonde beehived queen of blue-eyed rock n' soul is the current, long-time vocalist with the Saturday Night Live Band, who sang at SNL's 25th Anniversary telecast, Bob Dylan's 30th Anniversary bash at The Garden, and the 2009 Obama Inaugural Gala. Hers is the voice you hear on the '30 Rock' theme song, and last year she performed at their wrap party. "I've come here tonight to set your souls on fire," she'll tell an audience. And she will.

Mar 29 - Curtis Grimes - In 2011, Kenny Chesney hand-picked Curtis Grimes as the winner of his "Next Big Star" contest, inviting him to open for him on the road and even join Kenny for the encore. Soon after, Curtis made the quarter finals for first season of NBC show 'The Voice' (on Cee Lo Green's team). Following his success, Grimes played with artists such as Leann Rimes, Jack Ingram, Justin Moore, Eli Young Band, Josh Abbott, and Kevin Fowler to name a few.

Hill Country Live is located at 30 W. 26th St. New York, NY 10010. Phone: 212-255-4544
