How better to start a Thursday than with some drunk Jeff Bridges country tuneage? Not drunk. That’s only in movies. Not my favorite track from the record…actually, forgot I even owned this soundtrack when it magically appeared as song #109 in the shuffle. I come across some many Sondre Lerche, Train, Darren Hayes/Savage Garden, Jenny Lewis/Rilo Kiley, Lifehouse, MCR, etc that these small records get lost in the sea of musical madness. Refreshing. What else is hiding? Can’t wait to find out.
Sorry for not uploading more yesterday. Got royal fucked by everyone…the writers, producers, promos, researches, the directors…when your the middle man to some many different pieces of meshy solid foundation when the tower is built, eventually it shatters spectacularly. The broken shards didn’t cut as deep as I thought they would. I’m not the same man I once was when i started this gig a nearly a year ago. My heart is so numb. My feelings are now cold & distant. Hate feeling like this. Guess I should stop talking about it and keep getting fucked…only sort of action I’ve been getting at the moment.
It’s wing night and end of the office. Gonna rush home and watch it. I might post more today or I’ll cheat on you with meaningless work. Either way, I’ll be entertained. Here’s Oscar Winning actor & country singer Jeff Bridges with a classic.
Golden is/was our Album of the Week. Track 2 is the nostalgic-heartbreaking ‘Goodbye Town’ featuring Lady A’s Trio reliving their past lives in a small town. Literal video for a literal country song. Enjoy!
(It didn’t auto-publish yesterday, so here it is!)
Talk about a great country record. Lady Antebellum are consistent. Makes this fan quite content every time they drop a new album. The subject matter, this time around, is a bit darker & is made for lovelorn admirers. Rain is symbolized many times over the course of the 12 cuts.
No car is needed. Just have to be in a place by yourself. Two tracks you should really check out are the title track — Golden — and track 10 — All For Love. Upon hearing those, try not to fall in love instantaneously.
Golden is in stores now!
That’s not spring break, that’s just a regular Luke Bryan show. Full of crazy fun. Dig the song. Dig the video. So did this security official…hehe. Go pick up his new record — Spring Break: Here To Party. One of my favorite country records of 2013 so far. Almost time to take a Wing Night sip!

Music Video Megapost in the same light as our old dead segment — Daily Turntable. It’s more videos than you’ll see on MTV right now. And most are quite great.
Being a huge fan of Steve Martin’s records made it easy to love Edie Brickell featured act on their new collaboration – Love Has Come For You. The record is available everywhere. I own it. Happily too. Though I don’t recommend it to causal bluegrass/folk listens without first a preview. You’re either going to love the vocals or find them bland. Deserves a shot of your attention at least once.
Gotta love that banjo.
Your spotify preview is waiting below!
So do I. The country Tuesday continues with the new music video from Hunter Hayes. ’I Want Crazy’ is everything I love about country music. Catchy hook, romantic music video, and most importantly…it will make you smile. His self titled debut is out now.

We enjoyed ‘Hell on Heels’ and all the solo records/singles that Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe, and Angaleena Presley have dropped since 2011. Even saw them a year ago. Happily, their sophomore offering — Annie Up! — is more of the same. Amazon has your exclusive first listen of the record which has impressive country songs for country girls. The link is a bit tricky…the player is on the far right side of the page towards the top.
Sure I’m not the core audience, but most of my readers are and I never can turn down a country ballad.
The Pistol Annies raise the stakes next Tuesday.
1. “I Feel A Sin Comin’ On”
2. “Hush Hush”
3. “Being Pretty Ain’t Pretty”
4. “Unhappily Married”
5. “Loved By A Workin’ Man”
6. “Blues, You’re A Buzz Kill”
7. “Don’t Talk About Him, Tina”
8. “Trading One Heartbreak For Another”
9. “Dear Sobriety”
10. “Damn Thing”
11. “Girls Like Us”
12. “I Hope You’re The End Of My Story”
Friday! Brought to you by Stagecoach Weekend Headliner — Lady A. Wish I could be there for an encore performance of last year. Saldy, got other plans. That was one of the craziest weekends of 2012 featuring all your favorite country artists. Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, The Band Perry, & Steve Martin’s performances still hold up in my mind. You can relive the picture highlights here. One of my biggest blogging regrets was not writing up a megapost of that battle. It would’ve been erased by Google like all my B4M memories, but still. This year’s card left me underwhelmed. To all those crazy country souls…my only advice is to wear a mask & take claritin because that hayfever is a bitch to recover from.
I’ll mark Lady A from list one of these days. Update y’all later.
Still don’t know what to make of last night. I felt off. Should’ve saw it coming. My astrology predicted it back on April 1st. Yeah, I was surprised too. Weird Voodoo. Bad mojo. Cool Runnings man. Bobsled. (haha, coolest line I’ve written in days) Can’t say I’m disappointed in myself, but no one to blame except me. *sigh* Such potential. Moving on.
Excited for the weekend. Long day looming. Here is a song to get it started. Cheers to Friday!
Couldn’t decide between the Mega collection or my fresher IPod Touch. A cage was built. Two songs enter. They fight. Both are gonna survive because you & I know there won’t be an update. The winner is ultimately you. For I thoroughly enjoy both these tracks. As you should.
Ben Harper & Relentless7′s “The World Suicide” was one of the standout tracks from 2009′s ‘White Lies for Dark Times‘. A darker blues anthem that is so nice to ride too. To underestimate it…is poppycock. The music video is as raw as the track. How can you not side with it? It’s meaning can be projected on anyone or anything.
The Band Perry’s new record — Pioneer — is a beast in it’s own right. A song as country as country is. End of Time…also my first & favorite Doctor Who episode…is a love ballad that paints love’s greatest enemy — time itself — in the worst light from a lover’s POV. Not backing down from the heartbreak at the end of relationship. Kim desperately shouting that without ‘love’ back home, time has destroyed her world as ‘the one who got away’ is out living out their life somewhere else without her. A song with great sorrow & meaning. Meant to be shared.
Ben Harper’s “The World Suicide”
