I looove me some Texas and Red Dirt Country! I was introduced to the genre in 2011 when my husband and I moved to Fort Riley, KS where it was played on the radio, and we loved it! And it’s been really fun to see more people get into the music, which is fantastic, by the way. One of the staples of Red Dirt/Texas Country is The Casey Donahew Band. They’ve been on the scene for twenty years, and are still killing it with their new album “Built Different”. I got a chance to chat with Casey, which I’ve been wanting to do for years, so I was all for it!
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!
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!
I case you were under a rock these past few days, TENNESSEE BEAT ALABAMA.
It’s kind of a big deal.
Even though I gew up in West Tennessee, I’ve never fully commited to Vols superfandom- but I can appreciate them, and always cheer for them when they’re playing. So, even I was excited that Tennessee beat Alabama this past Saturday night.
It’s been a long damn time coming.
And Morgan Wallen – who like many Country stars are huge Vols fans- just honored the moment with a snippet of a song called “Tennessee Fan”.
Well, that’s kind of perfect, right?
Hopefully he’ll release the full song SOON!!!
What a great way to memorialize a pretty freaking huge moment in Tennessee sports.
Wayyyyy better than tearing down a goal post if you ask me.
I’ve been waiting for this for awhile… and it’s here!
Brian May (iconic guitarist of Queen for those not well-informed on such matters) announced earlier this year that Queen would be putting out a new album with the late Freddie Mercury’s vocals. Engineers spliced some stuff from recording sessions in the late 80’s to make it happen, and you know what? It’s pretty flipping spectcular.
Freddies vocals still give me the chills, and Brian May’s guitar solo is on fire, as per usual.
Can you totally see this song on a movie soundtrack? Like a Bond movie or something. That’s the vibe I’m getting.
Any more recordings that can be spliced together, guys? I may need more of this.
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.
