Dontcha miss the old Bored 4 Music? The one that blew up your facebook / twitter / blogrolls? I sure do. Here is the last post from this lazy morning brought you from Eric Church. ”A Man who was Gonna Die Young” is third single from 2014′s ‘Outsiders’. It continues the dark undertones & theme of the records / previous visuals in the collection.
Country prep boy swag. Insert catchy hooks, beer, sexy girls, semi-trucks, and much more to get the party started. This is FGL with LB with their revamped country single of “This is How We Roll”. We ridin’ through the country side.
‘Riser’ is out now! ”Bourbon in Kentucky” is the second single and the first team up combo with Dierks Bentley & Kacey Musgraves. Country’s rising siren vocal acts like a mimicking ghost, shadowing Dierks’ lyrics & harmonies. They are one in the same. And in the video, Dierks attempts to forget the ghost of her. Cue the rain & flames.
Blake Shelton, like most of us guys, knows the way into a girls heart…doing what she likes. His acclaimed ‘Based on a True Story’ cut now has a sweet music video where Blake proceeds to put together the perfect evening for his wifey. It all goes awry, but it’s the thought that counts. It’s my favorite track from the record. Made even better with dem fun-fiery visuals.
Miranda voices does make a cameo.

New Mexico country girl & NYC import, Kate Vargas, drops her new album — ‘Down To My Soul’ — to the internet world this upcoming Thursday. That is accompanied by a free show at the Rockwood Music Hall. (Didn’t you see the flyer above??? Kind of obvious?). Wish I could be there.
What I’m showcasing tonight is two tracks from her record that serve as a mere teaser. This gives you a taste of Kate’s urban bluesy bluegrass style, that stemmed from a love of Nina Simone & Tom Waits. Kate is a singer-songwriter that has an old musical soul that moves me to my core. Meaningful lyrics in a raw package. A similar feeling when I first heard her on Echo Bloom’s ‘Blue‘ some months ago.
Enjoy “Throw The Devil Back” & “The Music”. More tracks coming soon! Stay updated over on Kate’s Facebook or Official Page!
Really wanted to showcase Eric Church’s ‘The Outsiders’ as our Album of the Week. It’s not streaming on Spotify yet. So, seeing how I missed this back during crazy January, check out the meaningful ominous music video for “Give My Back My Hometown”. Some things never stay the same and our forever changed life’s actions. This video and song details that.

Flashback Friday with a really debatable track. Most music lovers absolutely love LeAnn Rimes’ version of “How Do I Live”. It was a cover that made her career. I am partial to Trsha Yearwood’s original. One of my favorite musical memories was coming across Songbook in my Dad’s CD collection & taking a chance on this track. It’s much sweeter, full of heart, and comes from a wonderful place. The 30-something “me” can really appreciate it more. Like a fine wine.
Looking forward to a nice lazy weekend. Got some writing to do, vinyls to be spun…which my Dad & I chatted about after Wing Night…and many more normal things I been missing all of 2014 (so far). I’ll be enjoying it. Have a great weekend as the love songs continue on Monday with more, poppy, classics. This is our last country love song for this week. Take it Trisha!
Country boys & girls…Easton Corbin. This swoon-able country ballad again says all the words most men (& women) have a hard time getting out of their romantic souls. For even inviting takes more work than it should, due to weight of situations. Corbin puts everything out there perfectly. I especially love all the Mexican relaxing-sunset poetry at the front end. Reminds me of all my baja xmas-es. Another sweet track.
Wing Night! We pretty much need a drink after this crazy ass sweeps week. Wings, Beer, and shooting the breeze with friends is always the perfect remedy. Music counts too. Here is a classic from Corbin. Enjoy!
Grab your shotguns. Miranda is coming…back…to getcha. Not really. Ms. Shelton downshifts the high octane guitar rifts for a very sweet beat, meaningful lyrics…that doesn’t feel forced…and just automatic. Sounds like she’s getting some “stuff” off her chest. Can’t help but relate.
This single is merely the first taste of Miranda’s upcoming 5th solo LP. Enjoy it. More words to follow soon.
