Eddie Vedder and Post Malone Peform “Better Man” for Charity

Earlier this month, Eddie Vedder and his wife Jill held a benefit at the Humble Baron at Nearest Green Distillery in Shelbyville, TN for the EBResearchPartnership which supports funding research to treat and cure Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB).

The event raised over 1 million dollars for the cause, which isn’t shocking with performances like this one featuring Eddie Vedder and Post Malone on “Better Man”- my favorite Pearl Jam song!

How great was that? Seriously, I’m becoming more and more of a Post Malone fan every day.

Also, Eddie still sounds great.

This whole thing just made my heart happy!

Ok, soooo…. a Post Malone/Eddie Vedder offical collab now, please?  Just putting that out into the universe…

 

Miranda Lambert and Enrique Iglesias “Space In My Heart”

Well, this was an unexpected collaboration, but I’m not mad at it!

Miranda Lambert (one of my favorites ever) teamed up with Pop Star Enrique Iglesias for a song called “Space in My Heart”.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but honestly, I was pleasantly surprised:

Overall, I found it very sweet, and easy to listen to. It perfectly captures that moment in a new relationship where you know it could be something special, but you don’t want to get your hopes up too much just in case.

Miranda has many more collabs coming- I know she’d been writing with Wade Bowen and Ashley Monroe this year, and I’m really hoping for a release of this song she performed with Miranda Lambert in December:

Let’s make it happen, ladies!!!!

Selena Gomez “Love On”

2024 is shaping up to be a great year already for new music!

That being said, Pop Star Selena Gomez just dropped her new track “Love On” like 2 seconds ago:


Ok, that is definitely one of my favorites of hers.

Cute, catchy Pop perfection right there!

I can see this being on TV/Movie soundtracks, commercials, etc.  I have a feeling this will be her biggest hit to date, and a Spring/Summer smash.

I’m calling it right now.

What do you think of Selena Gomez’s new song?

Lainey Wilson and Dolly Parton Perform “I Will Always Love You”

Dolly Parton’s “Pet Gala” is happening right now on CBS.

Am I watching?

No. My husband has commandeered the TV for the Memphis Basketball game (Go Tigers!), but I have my phone, and upon opening instagram, I saw this performance from Dolly Parton and Country’s new darling Lainey Wilson doing a version of Dolly’s iconic “I Will Always Love You”:

Night = Made!

Post Malone Teases Collab With Luke Combs!

Posty is going all in on his Country Music career!

First off, he was definitely giving that Country sound during his performance of “America the Beautiful” prior to the Superbowl last week.  And now he’s teasing a collab with Country superstar Luke Combs!

And you know what? It’s sounds like it will be pretty good:

Not too shabby, right?

I can’t wait for the full song to drop. I’m sure it won’t be long since he’s teasing it.

Honestly, I’m not mad at about artists in other genres trying their hand in Country music.  I wish people could be more open-minded about it. Country isn’t just about beer, trucks, heartbreak, and tan legs in cutoff jeans… ok that’s a lot of it, sure. But it’s a story. It’s genuine emotion and a lifestyle… three chords and the truth and all that.  You don’t have to be a redneck from the hills of Kentucky to get it right. And what if someone wants that lifestyle later on?  If they choose the country over the city like my parents did in 1992? Is that not ok?

Keep an open mind, kiddos.

Anyhow, I’m looking forward to “Country Posty”.

If nothing else, he may bring a whole new fanbase to the genre, and that’s not a bad thing.

 

Billy Joel “Turn The Lights Back On” Official Music Video

Billy Joel is back on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for the first time in decades with his first single in 31 years ‘Turn the Lights Back On”.  The release was well worth the wait, as it is a great song, and classic Billy Joel, really.  He even performed it at The Grammy Awards a couple of weeks ago to a well-deserved standing ovation.

Well, it just go better with his music video for “Turn the Lights Back On”- now THIS was a great use of AI, as it’s basically Billy Joel throught the years performing the same song:


Ok, for some reason I started tearing up at this.

My entire life, I’ve loved Billy Joel- he has always been a staple- and seeing this is strangely poignant.

Maybe I’m just emotional this morning, or just feeling my middle age, but this video hit me hard.

Dammit, Billy Joel.

But seriously, how great is this video?

I’m totally down with AI if it’s used like this.

 

Kelly Clarkson “Save Me”

Ok, I admit it. I am living for “Kellyoke” these days.

Seriously, I love seeing Kelly Clarkson’s take on different songs, and she hasn’t failed us yet.

Her latest effort? Covering the Jelly Roll hit “Save Me”.

I have a thousand and three chill bumps after this.

I mean, damn, how good is that?

And Jelly Roll, naturally, was extremely impressed as well, as he expressed on his socials:

Having Kelly cover your song on her show has to be a double-edged sword, though.

It’s great that she deemed a song great enough to cover, sure, but she’ll also sing it better than anyone else ever could.

Girlfriend sets the bar HIGH.

 

What song would you like to see Kelly Clarkson cover?

Lainey Wilson “Country’s Cool Again”

Lainey Wilson is on FIRE and there ain’t no hosing that girl down.

Fresh off of winning her first Grammy, Lainey just dropped a new song called “Country’s Cool Again”, and it’s catchy, Country perfection!


Lainey can’t miss right now, and I loved that song as soon as I hit play.  It’s fun, autobiographical, and factual… Country IS cool again. In fact, I don’t think it’s ever been hotter, except in the early 90’s when Garth Brooks was setting the world on fire. Country music is HUGE right now, and being a “country girl” myself,  growing up on the genre, and working in Country Radio, I couldn’t be happier. And I am so proud that we have amazing artists like Lainey on the forefront.

Lainey is hitting the road this year, and she’s hella good live. Get info and dates at http://laineywilson.com

Speaking of live music, here’s Lainey debuting “Country’s Cool Again” at Red Rocks last Fall:

Hot Damn, Ya’ll!

Metalhead Horse Isn’t a Fan of Country Music

This viral video combines two of my favorite things: Music and Horses!

Autumn Purdy and her horse “Pretty” have been going viral for her horse’s love of Heavy Metal.

This is the best thing I’ve seen all week!

Clearly, Pretty isn’t a Morgan Wallen fan.

Pretty is a rocker, dammit, and don’t you forget it!

My horse is more into Elton John and The Eagles… she’s middle-aged like that.

Check out more videos of Pretty’s rockin’ self on her owener’s Tik Tok here.

Pearl Jam “Dark Matter”

We knew we were getting new Pearl Jam soon, and lead singer Eddie Vedder said to expect a “harder” sound on this record, which, I was prety pumped for.

Well… got a pleasant surprise this morning when they dropped the title track of their 12th studio album “Dark Matter”, and it kills.

Damn. That’s good.

It’s reminds me of the early Pearl Jam days, which is not a bad thing.

Now, honestly, I’ve not always been the biggest Pearl Jam fan- I like some of their songs, but I don’t worship at the altar of Eddie Vedder like some of my friends do, but I appreciate them as a band, and this new single is really badass.

Rock isn’t dead.

Sorry Gene Simmons.

Pearl Jam’s new album “Dark Matter” drops April 19th, and you can find out more at http://pearljam.com
