10. Justin Moore
Justin isn’t on this list because I see him as a modern day rockstar. I wouldn’t expect to see cocaine at a Justin Moore party. But he’s been my favorite singer since I got into country, and I can’t see not having him on the list. I’d be happy to just have a backyard BBQ with Justin, a few beers and a bonfire. A good ole country hangout would be enough of a party for me.
9. Lainey Wilson
Lainey just seems like an awesome hang. I’m sure she would be fun at a party, but I want to attend a crawfish fry with her and listen to her tell the story of her rocket ship of a life. I’d want to talk about Yellowstone, working with Hardy, and where she sees her own music going. That would be an awesome time.
8. Chase Rice
Chase just seems like a good time. He seems like the buddy that says, “damn that girl is hot” and then next thing you know he has his arm around her. He also seems like the guy that will just sit back and get drunk but watch everyone else be stupid around him. I mean, the dude owns bison. He’s cool. Throwing down with Chase on his bison farm would be legendary.
7. Michael Ray
I think the Michael Ray crew is widely underrated. I’m sure Michael is an awesome hang. If he brings Tim Montana, even better. If Tim brings Travis Pastrana or Billy Gibbons… better. If Gibbons brings Nickelback… you see what I’m getting at. Micheal Ray seems like a good ole boy who gets a little bit of a bad reputation from his early music, but “Whiskey and Rain” and “Holy Water” are two of the most country songs I’ve heard in a long time. I’m down to booze with him anytime.
6. Jason Aldean
Jason Aldean seems like the type of guy that has parties where everyone would wear white and drink fancy shit. Still, the guests at the parties would be insane. Dee Jay Silver, Chucks Wicks, and Donald Trump? Sign me up. Maybe the party would be at his massive mansion in Nashville. Maybe it would be down in Florida on some yacht. I wouldn’t be going to chill with Aldean expecting a camo redneck party, but it could be fun to hang with a bunch of rich conservatives.
5. Kid Rock
Take everything I said about Jason Aldean but making it white trash. That’s exactly what I would expect from Kid Rock. I want beers flowing, extremely illegal drugs everywhere, and people driving around on quads. I want a massive bonfire that someone is dumping wood in using an excavator. I want kegs all over. I want the most redneck shit ever, and I’d expect that from Kid Rock.
4. Brian Kelly
Give me a rager at the beach cowboys house on Daytona beach. I want some fruity beach drink in my hand, the waves in the background, and everyone in bathing suits in the sand. I’d imagine that’s exactly what it would be like to party with the former FGL singer. Give me the tropical dream party.
3. Koe Wetzel
A party with Koe Wetzel should be how the hangover started. I’d expect to walk into the punk-country singers house, and then wake up in another state the next morning. I bet Koe goes hard, and I want to try and keep up.
These guys are wildin. If you’ve never heard them on the “Bussin’ With the Boys” podcast, do it. I want all the shenanigans. I’d expect a lot of boozing, a lot of ball busting, and a wild night with Midland. They do have a cruise next year… maybe that would be a good time to go hang?
1. Morgan Wallen + Ernest + Hardy
I’m going to cheat here. Obviously Hardy and Ernest should be on this list, but it felt kind of lame to have 30% of my list be those three. So I sandwiched them all together and I’d expect them all to be together when we throw down. Ernest has the kid, Hardy has the wife, and Morgan still has the wild side, but 1 night with these three all going 100% would be unbeatable. I can’t even imagine what a night with them would be like, but I’d be willing to bet it would be the best night I’d never remember.
So this is my list. Who did I miss? Let me know in the comments!
