Tampa Bay’s Hometown Morning Krewe

Weekdays 6:00AM - 10:00AM

Blake Shelton was on the Kelly Clarkson Show recently and the sang an acoustic version of “Austin”. We can hope that Kelly will join Blake and perform that song at Amalie Arena when Blake is here in Tampa on March 3rd.

Check out the acoustic version of “Austin” below.

“Austin” was Blake’s very first single that was released to country radio in 2001. It also became Blake’s first #1 song on country radio. It spent five weeks in the number one position on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. It was the longest amount of time spent at the number-one position by a debut single since “Achy Breaky Heart” by Billy Ray Cyrus.

Blake has been a coach on The Voice since the very first season in 2011. Kelly was a coach from Season 14 through Season 21.

Top 5 Best Guitar Pull Moments

Top 5 Best Guitar Pull Moments.  We hope you will join us this year for the QYK Guitar Pull.  It is not only our favorite show of the year, but so many in the Tampa community have said the same thing.  This is the 8th year we have done this show for you.

What Is A Guitar Pull

If you don’t know what a “guitar pull” is, it’s an intimate show where all of the artists are on stage at the same time.  The artists will each play two songs, then a quick break and then two more songs.  The show lasts around 3 hours long, depending on the artists themselves.  Each artist stops down and talks about the song stories.  Sometimes they just talk about other stuff, but the crowd is always entertained and laughing.  You never know what they will say on stage at the QYK Guitar Pull, which makes it our favorite show of the year.  The show sells out every year.  It’s not a dance show, majority of people in the audience sit in their seats, a great date night actually.

This years show will once again be at The Mahaffey Theater in downtown St. Petersburg on Sunday November 12th!  On stage this year is Scotty McCreery, and more!  There will be 5 artists on stage this year.    Stay tuned to find out who else will be joining the show each weekday morning at 8:20 the week of September 5th-8th.

Previous Artists On The QYK Guitar Pull Stage

It’s crazy to think about some of the big names that have been on our Guitar Pull stage in the past.  Morgan Wallen, Sam Hunt, Kane Brown, Chris Young, Lee Brice, Chris Janson, Dustin Lynch, Charles Kelley, Big and Rich….and many more.  Majority of the artists want to be apart of our guitar pull because we use this to give back to our community.  Proceeds from the show help out the Bill Edwards Foundation for the Arts.

So hard to pick out some of the most memorable moments, but here is our top 5

Here is a video from 2021  and us having fun with the artists.

  • 1. Chris Janson sings Drunk Girl in 2018

    Someone asked Chris to sing this song – and so Chris decided to do it tonight. The very first time he sang Drunk Girl at a show was this QYK Guitar Pull and it was amazing!

    Morgan sat on stage next to Hardy and the boys had a great night – Morgan sang a bunch of his songs acoustically and we really enjoyed it!
