This year, HGTV partnered with Paste as we headed down to Gulf Shores, Ala., for what we’d considered the best Hangout Music Fest to date. Beyond watching shows from some of our favorite artists, we filmed and recorded our own performances on the beach. Not just near it, but with our feet covered in Alabama’s pristine sands.
Nashville songwriter Jon Black, performing under the stage name Fort Atlantic, returned to Hangout Music Fest this past May for the second consecutive year. During his time at the festival, Black joined us for a two-song beach session, sharing new songs off his new self-titled record. Watch him perform “Let Your Heart Hold Fast” and “No One Will Know” in the streaming player below.
