I've been inspired.

Last week we announced the rest of the line up for the 2018 Taste of Country Music Festival at Hunter Mountain. The three-day festival will feature headlining artist Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line and Sam Hunt. Now that it's officially 2018, we learned the rest of the artist joining our headliners.

Dustin Lynch, Justin Moore, Montgomery Gentry and Kane Brown are just a few of the big names heading up the mountain for the weekend. It was also announced that Ashley McBryde would be performing as well.

Paty Quyn was so excited about the Ashley McBryde announcement and she basically told me I HAD to listen over the weekend.

So I did. And now I'm obsessed.

This song is a gem. I can't wait to hear it at TOC. However, it does have me thinking about my favorite Hudson Valley dive bar.

I personally think being called a dive bar is a compliment. So my pick would have to be Max's on Main in Beacon. In the mist of all the hipster bars, Max's stands out as the low-key dive bar with domestic beers and delicious bar food.

What's your go-to Hudson Valley dive bar?
