Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani “Purple Irisis”

Ok, first off, I love Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani together. I’m a big fan of the whole “Opposites Attract” thing, as my husband and I are definitely opposites in so many ways, but after almost 17 years of marriage, I think it’s working out pretty well.

There’s been a lot of tabloid rumors about Blake and Gwen being on the rocks, and I’m thinking the release of their new duet “Purple Irisis” is their “Piss Off” song.

Ok, I am really, really loving that.

Their last couple of collabs were definitely Country, but this is more Pop, with Gwen’s unmistakeable sound, with kind of a No Doubt vibe to it.

I love that it references aging, and still thinking someone is hot, even into their forties and fifties.  Again, kind of living that life right now, as I just turned 41, and it’s not 2006 anymore. My neck is proof of that.

Also, the “purple irisis” reference is to Gwen’s love of gardening, which she does a lot of on Blake’s Oklahoma ranch.

Maybe, haters, just maybe they’re actually happy?

I mean, I get it. Gavin Rossdale is hot and all, but Blake knows how to gut a deer and drive a tractor.

He wins.

Jordan Rainer Performing Blake Shelton’s “Ol’ Red” On “The Voice”

I’ll be honest… it’s been awhile since I’ve watched ‘The Voice” or any kind of singing reality show. But every now and again, I’ll see a video pop up from one of the shows, and it makes me take notice.

Case in point: Jordan Rainer’s performance of “Ol’ Red” on NBC’s “The Voice”.

Wasn’t that a cool performance?

First off, I have always loved the original song, and Jordan put such a unique spin on it with that performance.

Was she trying to get into Gwen Stefani’s good graces?

Well, duh.

But still, a creative choice and great performance which is bound to get the Oklahoma native some attention for sure!

A fresh, new Country voice that is much needed!

Blake Shelton “No Body”


I’ve always loved Blake Shelton since the days when he had his orginal mullet and was singing about answering machines with “Austin”…and he’s brought the mullet back with his new single “No Body”!  It’s just a fun, easy-listening Country song that honors some of the best 90’s hits.  As a 90’s Country kiddo, I can definitely appreciate. Plus, who doesn’t love a good line dance?

Also, Blake Shelton is just one of the nicest, most down-to-Earth humans ever.  So, I’m always happy to support him!


Also, I just remembered that my parents had a line-dancxe instruction video on VHS when I was a kid.  I don’t think they ever actually watched it, though.
