Ashley McBryde Performs a Disney Classic With “Part of Your World”

Ashley McBryde recently performed in Orlando, and she totally got Disney with it.

As she should.

Check out her incredible performance of “Part of Your World” from the Disney classic “The Little Mermaid”:

@ashleymcbrydemusic When in Orlando, you MUST sing a #Disney song…specifically, you must sing something from The Little Mermaid. Thanks @Lynsey for capturing this video! #OnTour #TheLittleMermaid ♬ original sound – Ashley McBryde

How great was that, though?

Ok, so now I’m thinking that a Country covers album of Disney Classics sung by today’s Country stars should be a thing.

Ok, universe, I threw it out to ya, now go manifest!

Afroman “Hunter Got High”

I. Am. Dying.

Look, I try not to get too political, because honestly, what’s the point?

The whole system is messed up on both sides. So, it’s hard for me to get involved knowing there is real no right answer.

But there is something that I think EVERYONE can agree on: Hunter Biden is a complete hot mess express.

So much so that Afroman made a parody of his own hit song “Because I Got High” and turned it into the best song of the year so far.

Ladies and gentlemen… I present to you “Hunter Got High”!

Absolutely glorious, and already my week has been made, and it’s only Monday.

On a side note, I once went to an Afroman concert at Rick’s in Starkville, MS when I was in college.

I didn’t get high.

Missed opportunity, for sure.

Morgan Wallen and Post Malone Debut “I Had Some Help” at Stagecoach

Stagecoach was on FIRE this past weekend.

Seroiusly having FOMO watching all of these fan videos popping up everywhere.

First Miranda Lambert debuting her new song “Wranglers” and then bringing Reba onstage? What???

Then last night, headliner Morgan Wallen brought out Post Malone for their new collab “I Had Some Help”.

I mean, what better place to show off the new music than Stagecoach, right?

@isabellagrossman5 Posty x morgan was the highlight of my year #postmalone #morganwallen #morgan #stagecoach #coachella #posty #country #countrymusic ♬ original sound – Isabella Grossman

Here some more footage I found so far:

This song is catchy as HELL, and you know it’ll be #1 if released as single.

Pretty sure both guys are a bit wasted during this performance, but it’s Morgan and Posty, so that’s to be expected.

Also, it’s freaking Stagecoach. Hell No H20!

2024 is shaping up to be a pretty solid year for music, and I can’t wait for more!

And if you want to catch Morgan on the road this year (good luck getting tickets) here’s the dates: https://morganwallen.com/

Miranda Lambert Debuts New Song “Wranglers” Live at StageCoach!

Miranda Lambert has been teasing her new single “Wranglers” for the past couple of weeks, and last night at Stagecoach, and halfway through the 22 song set, she busted out her new single “Wranglers” for the first time!

Here’s more footage that I had found so far:

I am SO excited for this new single, which drops this Friday, May 3rd. And since Miranda signed with Republic Records recently, it’s a safe bet we’ll get a new album soon.

Oh, but you know what ELSE happened?

Miranda surprised fans again when she did a 3-song medley with Reba McEntire!

I don’t know f I can handle all of this badassery.

Kelly Clarkson Covers Don Henley on “The Kelly Clarkson Show”

Ok, I’m kind of obsessed with Kelly Clarkson’s “Kellyoke” segment on “The Kelly Clarkson Show”.

I honestly don’t think there is anything that she can’t sing and make it as good or even better than the original.

The latest performance that caught my attention? Her cover of Don Henley’s “Heart of the Matter”.

Just… wow.

I’ve always loved that song, and Kelly added just the right amount of vocal gymnastics to make her version extra special.

Does she ever miss a note or go off pitch?  Is that just an scientific impossiblity for her?

Anyway, kudos to Kelly on this version of “Heart of the Matter”.  She really nailed this one to the floor.

Chris Stapleton Covers Tom Petty


Chris Stapleton just released his contibuton to the upcoming Tom Petty Country Tribute album “Petty Country” and it’s everything and more I hoped it would be.

Chris was tapped to sing “I Should Have Known It” and it’s all the badassery you could want:

I love that it has that strong Southern Rock vibe that Chris does so well.

Then again, I’m pretty sure Chris could sing… I don’t know… bubblegum Pop and sound stellar.

Hm. Maybe he should prove that?

Maybe he should do a Britney Spears tribute?

He would make it work.

Here’s the full track listing for “Petty Country” out May 31st:

Motley Crue “Dogs of War”

Motley Crue is moving on from Mick Mars with their first recording with new guitarist John 5 with their new release “Dogs of War”.

Now, I love me some Motley Crue. Especially the “Theater of Pain” and “Dr. Feelgood”  eras.

And I was kind of excited when I heard the opening guitar riff, thinking, “Oh, heck, this could be good”.  And then there was kind of a letdown aferwards.

I mean, it’s not horrble. But Vince Neil’s vocals are super distorted (probably because his singing isn’t up to par, and hasn’t been for years), and it reminds me of bands that were trying to hard to be “hard” in the late 90’s/early 2000’s.

At least, that’s the vibe I caught from it.

That being said, kudos to them for keeping the Crue Train rolling, and I’m looking forward to more new music from them. They just signed with Big Machine, so I have a feeling some good stuff could come from that.

Heart and Kelly Clarkson Perform on “The Kelly Clarkson Show”

Today is Kelly Clarkson’s 42nd Birthday, and she celebrated in a big way by having the iconic Rock duo Heart on her show today!

Holy Vocal-moly!

Is that a term? Well, it is now.

Kelly got to not only get some great stories from the rock and roll sisters, but also got to perform some of their biggest hits with them, which is you know Heart, you know Ann Wilson’s vocals are tough to cover.

But for Kelly Clarkson? Not a problem whatsoever.

Damn. That’s all I can say. I mean, how vocally spot on can you get?

Also, let’s be real. Ann sounds GREAT, especially considering that she’s in her seventies.

Get it, woman!

Oh, and Heart is on the road this year with Cheap Trick… info and dates here: https://www.heart-music.com/


Morgan Wallen Debuts New Song at Ole Miss Concert

It looks like it’s going to take more than three Felony charges to slow Morgan Wallen down…

After getting arrested – again- this time for throwing a chair off of the rooftop Eric Church’s bar in downtown Nashville a couple of weeks ago, Morgan Wallen is back on the road, and really, not missing a beat.

He has since apologized, but it still remains to be seen if the charges will stick.

Really, Morgan is just a dumb drunk. That’s what it boils down to. A lot of Country stars have done waaaaayyyyy worse. But still, it was messed up, and I’m hoping he has learned his lesson.

Probably not.

But one can hope, right?

Anyhow, back to the music…

Morgan was at Ole Miss over the weekend, which is like Ground Zero for his fanbase, and he debuted a new song called “Lies Lies Lies” live and it sounds awesome:

@sadlergal @morganwallen teaching the SIP about LIES, LIES, LIES #morganwallen #fallinforwallen #gaht #2024 #onethingatatime #fypviral #fyp #fypage ♬ original sound – Kelly

Here’s another clip that I found on the interwebs:

Pretty dang good.

He’s got talent and songwriting skills for sure, and the controversy certainly hasn’t hurt him

Then again, P Diddy is being accused of WAY worse things, so maybe throwing bar furniture isn’t the worst thing?

Someone hire him some new handlers! Like, maybe put him on a leash like people do with toddlers…

In the meantime, the Morgan Wallen train shows no signs of slowing down.

Just watch out for flying chairs if you go.
