This week on Play the Music, we’re featuring two women who are no stranger to blending music genres.

Stephanie Wagner is founder and operator at NYCountry Swag, New York’s No. 1 country music lifestyle and media brand. Wagner launched her country music outlet in 2015 in order to connect fans and artists through special events and promotions. Today the platform is known for its artist interviews, events hosted to showcase rising talent, and its clothing line.

NYCountry Swag’s managing editor, Christina Bosch, also joins us for the conversation. We chat about country’s recent rise up the charts by way of pulling inspiration from other genres, the country music scene in New York and more.

To stick with this theme, we’re also covering some genre-bending tracks from Blanco Brown, Maren Morris and Hozier, Marshmello and Kane Brown, Sam Hunt, and Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber.

To learn more about Stephanie, Christina and NYCountry Swag, visit the official website and keep up-t0-date with the latest on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
