May 11, 2023 – By Bradley Casada:
I had this amazing pleasure of seeing Hayden McBride for the second time. The first was an energetic crowd at one of the staple Venues in Texas, The Blue Light Live. The second and most recent was in an awesome underrated venue in Denton, Dans Silver Leaf. This venue has some of the best Acoustics I have ever heard and has big names such as Kody West, Cody Canada, and even Hayes Carl. Adding to the list of talented musicians to come play this intimate venue Hayden McBride and his band played a show that had the crowd dancing and singing along!
The set list of originals and covers made everyone in the venue head bob and the dance. The energy between two venues never shifted as I believe what Hayden Says, “Five or Five Thousand we are going to play the same show”. That they did. The insanely clear guitar tones make you feel like you are listening to a recording instead of a live show!
Hayden McBride may not be the most recognizable name as of now but he just released a single, “SPEED”, and has a full EP that is “Worth the Wait”, but he is well on the way with the energy and writing!
I invite you to watch out for Hayden on Facebook and his website as he is coming to more local venues an releasing more music soon. He is also on Spotify, Apple Music, and ITunes with a full album coming this year. We will also add a couple to our TCMN Featured Artist Playlist.
Note from the Editor- (about the author – Bradley Casada)
I recently met Bradley Casada at the 34th running of Larry Joe Taylor’s Texas Music Festival, and I learned very quickly Bradley is passionate guy when it comes to Music and also a guy who loves Texas Country Music. He has a passion for writing, and expressing the emotion of seeing a band live through the written word, a talent not many can successfully do. We look forward to more words from Bradley and all the amazing shows he will be attending in the future.
