Elle King “Tulsa”

Elle King has gone Country, and I’m thinking it’s going to work out just fine…


If you recall, she burst onto the scene in the Mid-2010’s with “Exes and Ohs” (GREAT SONG) and has since had several chart-topping Country collabs with Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley. So, the obvious next move is to go full on Country, right?

Here’s her new single “Tulsa” and it’s not what you think it would be.

Yep, you can definitely tell she’s been hanging with Miranda.

And seriously, what woman hasn’t been in a Tulsa situation?

I can’t wait for Elle’s album “Come Get Your Wife”- love the title!- and it will be available on January 27th.



Fun Fact: Elle is actor Rob Schneider’s daughter!

Hannah Ellis Interview

The first time I heard “Country Can” on the radio, I immediately had to look up the artist Hannah Ellis and track her down!  Luckily, I was able to catch a few minutes with her and she is just as cool as her song!

Isn’t she fun?  I especially love her story about being on “The Voice”- it just proves that if you really, really want something to happen, you have to chase it down, and not take NO as an answer.

Check out “Country Can” – it’s definitely one of my favorite new Country songs this year!

I can’t wait to see what happens for Hannah in the future. Whatever it is, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be awesome.

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.

Mackenzie Carpenter “Hunting Season”

My husband is an avid hunter. When I say avid, I mean completely, unabashadly obsessed.

I can’t tell you how many times I get asked if I’m pissed that he spends so much time in the woods chasing turkey and deer… and you know what? BMLG artist Mackenzie Carpenter hit the nail on the head on how I feel with this song.

Look, my husband is amazing and I love being with him. But I also love my alone time (well, as much alone time as one can have with an almost 1 year old) and doing my own thing. I always have, which is why I’ve been able to easily handle the Army Wife Life for the past 15 years.

I don’t know why people think that in a relationship you have to spend all of your time together.


That’s kind of ridiculous, don’t you think?

Honestly, I’d rather have my husband chasing Buck Racks than the other kind of rack, you know what I’m saying?

Anyway, shout out to Mackenzie for a fresh take in this song! I can’t wait to hear more from her.

Check Out This Amazing Song By New Artist Kylie Frey

I was listening to a Country station that one of my best friends Carly Evans programs (Mountain Country 107.3) and unlike a lot of Country stations, it actually features new artists that haven’t hi it big yet.  This song came on the radio, and 3 minutes later I was crying.  It wasn’t just the pregnancy hormones.

The song is called “Horses in Heaven” and the artist is Kylie Frey, and Country star Randy Houser does the back up vocals.  It’s a well-written, heart-wrenching song that anyone who has strong family ties, loves horses, and has a deep love and respect for the Country lifestyle (or all three like me!) will totally get.


I love REAL Country music, and this song is definitely it.  I really hope to hear more from Kylie in the future!
