LAS VEGAS, Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Stoney's Rockin' Country was awarded Best Country Bar in the Las Vegas Review Journal's Best of Las Vegas Poll, an honor well-deserved according to owner Chris Lowden. "It's no coincidence we won. It's the result of hours of hard work from our entire team. Our bartenders, our DJ, our bull operator, anyone and everyone at Stoney's strives to deliver the best country experience in Las Vegas each and every night, week in and week out. And I couldn't be prouder," continues Lowden.
This passion has made Stoney's one of the most sought after Vegas venues for country artists. In fact this year alone, the likes of Love & Theft, Chase Bryant, Maggie Rose, Phil Vassar, Chris Lane, and Montgomery Gentry have played the Stoney's stage. " Montgomery Gentry was huge, we were at capacity, an absolutely amazing show. That's why we do this to keep country alive in Las Vegas," exclaimed Lowden. Country music has been on a meteoric rise over the last several years and has seen a large demographic shift as bands like Florida Georgia Line and artists like Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, and Sam Hunt blur the boundaries of country music. "Stoney's is rooted in the history of country music, but that music is shifting and we have to shift with it. We have to appeal to the traditional couple looking for a night of two-stepping and cha-chas as well as the sophomore from UNLV that wants to line dance to Justin Timberlake. It's a real balancing act," laughed Lowden. Stoney's manages to cater to the wide spectrum of country music fans featuring free nightly line dance lessons, mechanical bull rides, and drink specials every Wednesday through Saturday night.
