Steve Moakler Treats Fans to Acoustic Set When Power Goes Out Onstage [Watch]
Steve Moakler made the most of a tricky situation when the lights unexpectedly went out at a recent show.
When the power went out for more than an hour at a show in Knoxville, Tenn., Moakler didn't stop playing. Instead, he took matters into his own hands and got up close and personal with the crowd to continue the set. Moakler shares a fan-captured video of the fun on his Facebook page, where he's seen singing "Suitcase" with his band, surrounded by a crowd of fans as they hold up the lights from their cell phones and sing every word along with him.
"Some of the most fun I've had in a long time. All we need is each other and some songs. And the little lights on our cell phones...," Moakler writes alongside the video.
Moakler released his new album Steel Town on March 17, which includes "Suitcase," co-written by Thomas Rhett, and "Love Drunk" from his self-titled EP released in 2016. The album is produced by hit Nashville songwriter Luke Laird ("Fast," "Pontoon"). The title is inspired by the factory town Moakler grew up in just outside of Pittsburgh, Pa., and its lead single "Wheels" is currently on country radio.
"I’m so proud of this song,” Moakler said of "Wheels" at his album release party.
The rising country star is currently headlining Sirius XM’s Highway Finds Tour, which takes him across the country throughout the spring. The tour kicked off March 16 in Charlotte, N.C., and continues through May 20 when it wraps in Chicago, Ill.
