Luke Bryan “Prayin’ in a Deer Stand”

I’ll be completey honest- not a big fan of most of Luke Bryan’s music.

Luke Bryan himself? Nicest guy ever. Seriously an awesome guy.  But his “Long tan legs, get in the back of my truck, drink from my cup” brand of Country never really gelled with me.  (I mean, what about all the women with short, pale legs? Where’s the love for them?)

Well, he just dropped a song that- due to the title- I had to check out.

My husband is an avid hunter, and he’s said many times that he finds God when hunting.  Hunting isn’t something that I don’t partake in personally, but I do understand and support hunting, and can make a mean venison stew.

It’s funny, when I told my husband this morning about this song, he said “Bet he’s got a girl with long tan legs in cutoff jeans up in that deer stand”, but then I played it for him, and he had to admit that it’s a good song, and that he definitely relates to it.

That’s what Country music is, after all.  Or what it should be, at least.


I hope Luke keeps putting out more songs like this!


Kylie Morgan “If He Wanted to He Would”


Ok, I am loving the new single from Kylie Morgan “If He Wanted to He Would”.

It’s just a total truth bomb.  No woman (or man!) wants to hear it, but it’s true.  If someone is really into you, they’ll call. They’ll take you to meet your family and introduce you to their friends.

There’s really no good excuse, but man, we are good at making them aren’t we?

Hey, my late teens and early twenties, I was that girl, making excuses for loser guys who honestly were not worth my time. (But you couldn’t tell me that. )

Look, he’s really not that busy.

He’s just not that into you.  Find someone who is, and actually give them a chance.

You’d be suprised.

Anyhow, I’m off my relationship advice sopabox, and I really love this song and artist.



Want more? She’s got an EP out, and is big on socials.  She’s got some really fun songs, and I think you’ll be seeing a lot of Kylie in the future.

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!!!

Hardy and Lainey Wilson “Wait in the Truck”

Damn, HARDY… way to write a powerful Country song!

Anyone who has been a victim of domestic abuse can appreciate this.  Yes, I’ve been there. I’m so damn lucky to be out of that relationship.

Anyhow, HARDY is quickly becoming one of the most celebrated songwriters in Country music, and Lainey Wilson, well, she’s a freaking superstar in the making. Both the song and the video will get you hard.

Right? Damnnnn…


Definitely one of the most important songs of the year in Country music. After all, isn’t that what the genre is about? Telling a story.

Ad Hardy can definitely do that.

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.



New Song of the Week: 6-21-21

I’m quickly becoming a fan of Gabby Barrett.

At first I thought, “Oh, yay, another Idol contestant. Ok…” But she is quickly earning her spot in Nashville and on both Country and Top 40 radio. Her first hit single “I Hope” was a crossover smash, but I have to say, I like her new single “Footprints on the Moon” even better.

Since the song is just getting released, there’s no music video yet- just a live performance video.  Call me cheesy, (because I totally am) but I love songs that motivate, and this one totally does.  I can see it being a sports anthem or something like that. Being a woman who has had to prove herself time and time again, and have done things I was always told I couldn’t do, I definitely relate to this song.

Heck, these days, we can all use some motivation, right?
