Up-and-coming acts from the Nashville music scene are returning for Northern Colorado concerts in 2019.

The New Country 99.1 free concert series New From Nashville is back for its eighth season — this year hosted at The Boot Grill at 4164 Clydesdale Parkway in Loveland. The series is sponsored by Coors Banquet and High Country Beverage.

The 2019 concert series kicks off at at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday featuring Matt Stell and the duo Haley & Michaels. Attendees will have a chance to win free tickets, and meet and greet passes to Brett Young's concert at 7 p.m. on March 14 at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver.

Stell, born in Central Arkansas and later raised in Central Florida, was a college basketball player at Drury University before launching his music career. He's opened for Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Chris Stapleton, Gary Allan, Jason Isbell and Jake Owen, among others.
