On September 18, 2011, rising country music singer-songwriter JT Hodges performed at the Brookhaven Amphitheater situated in Farmingville,New York.  He was one of eleven country acts that performed and paid a tribute to the U.S.veterans.

Hodges opened his set with the fun, up-tempo “Rather Be Wrong Than Lonely,” and it was followed by “Green Eyes” and the stunning “Leavin’ Me Later,” which he performed a-capella.

Yet another fan favorite tune was “Sleepy Little Town,” which he dedicated to the “small town folks” that were in the audience. Equally remarkable was “Rhythm of the Radio” with the vivid imagery in its lyrics.

When he performed his spitfire single “Hunt You Down,” which is climbing up the country charts, he got the crowd singing and whistling along to its catchy chorus. He noted that his new single was inspired from a night in Memphis,Tennessee.

“This is an amazing event to be a part of today!” Hodges exclaimed. “Thank you 96.1 FM for having us,” he added.

He closed his well-received set-list with “Give It One More Night,” which left the audience wanting more.

Following his mini-concert, he was gracious enough to make himself available to fans, who gathered by the crowds on this hot Sunday afternoon, to pose for pictures and sign autographs.

In summation, JT Hodges proved that he is more than just a man with good looks. He is one talented country singer and songwriter who knows how to work the Long Island audience. If he continues to write and record songs of this caliber, his future in the country industry looks very promising!
