Dolly Parton Goes Rock!

 

If there’s one thing everyone can agree on, it’s that Dolly Parton is a National Treasure.  She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a few weeks ago, and it aired on HBO this past weekend.  During the ceremony, Dolly confirmed that she is making a rock album, and performed a new song called “Rockin'” to celebrate.

 

Is it really rock? Nah.  But Dolly is a QUEEN and can do whatever the hell she wants.

Oh, and she enlisted Steve Perry- former frontman of Journey- to help her with her new album, and more to come, so I’m thinking this could be pretty great.

 

DOLLY FOR PRESIDENT, ya’ll!

Neon Union Live Performance!

 

So, today at the station, a hot new Country duo called Neon Union stopped by to play us a few songs at the Silversound Guitar Studio and they were incredible!

Plus, some of the nicest guys you could ever hope to meet.

Here’s a few of their songs:

 

“Bout Damn Time”

“This Side of the Dirt”

“Made in Mexico”

 

Aren’t they freaking good?  They’re just getting started, too.

 

Thank you Jab Entertainment for bringing them to us today.   This was a total treat.

 

And yes, my baby Brandon was trying to perform harmonies in the background.  Some moms take their babies to daycare. I take mine to artist showcases.  Brandon’s not mad at it.

Boomtown Saints “All Trucks Go to Heaven”

Aaaaaahhhh! I am SO excited for these guys!!!!!

Boomtown Saints- Chris Ramos and Ben Chism- are the nicest ever, and their new single “All Trucks Go to Heaven” is taking off in Nashville. As it SHOULD!!! It’s perfect.

I’m so proud of these guys.

We also got to catch up this week- check the interview to find out more about Boomtown Saints!

I am so, so happy for Ben and Chris, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.

Watch out, Nashville!!!

The Best Christmas Songs EVER!

Tis’ the season for holiday music!

Oddly enough, I couldn’t stand Christmas music growing up. Not sure why, but thankfully I’m growing out of that, and getting my Christmas cheer on.  Here are my picks for the BEST Christmas songs of all time.

“All I Want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey

Overplayed? Sure. But that’s because it’s glorious. I don’t care what kind of mood I’m in, as soon as this comes on the radio, I’m in full-on car performance mode.  If you hate this song, it’s because you hate life. That’s all there is to it.

 

“Hallelujah” by Pentatonix

This song is a classic, and noone does it like Leonard Cohen, I get that.

But daaannnnng, Pentatonix’s version gives me hella chills every time I hear it.  The sheer vocal talent of this group is incredible.

 

“The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole


You can’t beat Nat King Cole, especially when it comes to holiday classics. Nat knows what’s up.

 

 

“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by Frank Sinatra

Like Nat King Cole, Ol’ Blue Eyes can do no wrong when it comes to holiday songs.

Still trying to wrap my mind around Scott Stapp of Creed playing him in an upcoming Ronald Reagan biopic. But that’s a rant for another day.

 

“Christmas Tree Farm” by Taylor Swift

I’m a Swiftie, and I’m not ashamed.

This is a great original Christmas tune, and I don’t care what you say about Tay Tay, woman can write a dang song!

 

“Christmas Eve and Other Stories” by Trans-Siberian Orchestra


I can’t pick just one song, so here’s the full album.  Just absolutely incredible musicianship, and a great marriage of rock and holiday classics.

 

“Underneath the Tree” by Kelly Clarkson

Such a fun, happy Christmas song, and Kelly’s vocals are just killer.  Another one that prompts a very terrible car concert by your truly.

 

“Hallelujah” by Carrie Underwood and John Legend

This one just came out this year on Carrie’s first full-length Christmas album “My Gift”

Two fantastic artists on a gorgeous song.  Wowza!

 

“Carol of the Bells” by Lindsey Sterling

Lindsey Sterling is crazy talented, and I love this take on the classic “Carol of the Bells”

I wish I could play an instrument, or dance, or anything cool like that. Oh well. At least I can live vicariously through her.

 

That’s my list of the best Christmas songs.

What’s your favorite holiday tune? Am I missing anything?

 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!!!!
