Terri Clark and Ashley McBryde “Better Things to Do”

Did you hear?

90’s Country Icon Terri Clark has a new project coming out called “Terri Clark: Take Two”, which is kind of a re-imagining of her greatest hits featuring some of the biggest female Country stars of today with her on some of her greatest hits.

Growing up on Country Music in the 90’s, Terri Clark was a staple on the radio, and hearing this made me all giddy.

She has teamed up with everyone from Lainey Wilson to Lauren Alaina to Ashley McBryde, and she just released her version of “Better Things to Do” featuring Ashley, who I love.

Check it out!

Cool, right?

I loved this song in Junior High, and full disclosure… I once dedicated this song on the local Country radio station in Henderson, TN to my first “boyfriend” who broke up with me because I was too annoying.

It went over like a turd in a punch bowl, but I made my point.

Oh, good times…

To be fair, 13-year-old me was kind of a weirdo, so I kind of get why he dropped me.

But still… rude.

“Terri Clark: Take Two” drops on May 31st, the same day that the Tom Petty Country tribute “Petty Country” comes out.

Needless to say, I’m pretty dang stoked!

Post Malone Teases New Collab With Morgan Wallen!

Yep, Post Malone is for real going Country.

And you know what? I certainly ain’t mad at it.

So, last week he teased a possible collab with Luke Combs called “Missin’ You Like This”:

Duuuuudddeeee… I can’t wait to hear more!

Stay tuned!

Bon Jovi “Legendary”

As a child of the 80’s and 90’s, naturally I’m a Bon Jovi fan. I mean, how can you NOT be? One of the greatest American Rock bands, and like many of them, they are still going strong.

This morning, I was pleasantly surprised to see not only a new song from the legendary band, but also an album announcement!

The new single “Legendary”, written by Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Falcon, and John Shanks, is basically a reflection of where Jon is in his life at 62.

He recently underwent surgery on his vocal chords, and during the break, he said he had time to re-evaluate his life, and recognize the things that really matter. And the song is a tribute to his wife Dorthea, who has been by his side since the beginning, hence the “Brown Eyed Girl” reference.

I love it! Just an overall happy song, and I am lucky to be able to relate, as I write this with my beautiful two-year old son stealing my phone and throwing it on the kithcen floor after sneezing on it, and my Husky snuggling my feet.

It’s the little things in life that matter.

We so often forget that.

Bon Jovi’s 16th studio album- and their first in four years- “Forever”- comes out on June 7th.

Kelly Clarkson Covers Tiffany “I Think We’re Alone Now”

Kelly Clarkson knocks it out of the vocal ballpark again!

First off, thank you to Tony Page Jr. for sending this to me via Facebook- he knows I’m always down for some Kellyoke action.

I always Love , Love, LOVE 80’s music, so when you put the two together, it’s an automatic win.

Check out her cover of Tiffany’s 1987 smash  “I Think We’re Alone Now” :

Ok, Kelly just nailed that one. And her band is fantastic. That drummer, though. He killed it!

What song would you like to see Kelly cover?

Carly Pearce “hummingbird”

Well, my Friday morning has been made.

Carly Pearce just announced her fourth studio album via Big Machine Label Group! I figured it was coming soon, as she wiped her instagram clean this week- always a good indicator that something is coming.

The new album is called “hummingbird” and is out June 14th. And the title track is absolutely STUNNING:

How gorgeous is that?

I was immediately transported into another world with that song. It’s one that brings it’s own imagery, which is one of my favorite things that a song can do.

Here’s what Carly put on her instagram to tease the song:

I love that so much. It seems like Carly is coming through the tough times beautifully, and I can’t wait to hear the full album

You can also catch her on the road with Tim McGraw this Spring/Summer on the “Standing Room Only” tour, and you can find the dates at http://carlypearce.com

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?

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.


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.

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!

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
