Dolly Parton just made my Friday EVEN better by giving us another song off of her upcoming “Rockstar” album. She has teamed up with the legendary Linda Perry for a version of “What’s Up” by 4 Non Blondes. At first, I wondered how she would handle the escalating vocals and vibe, but who was I kidding?
It’s Freaking Dolly.
I don’t think there is anything she can’t sing. And remember, she’s in her mid-70’s.
I seriously cannot wait for her full “Rockstar” album, which drops November 17th.
There really is no end to Carrie Underwood’s talents.
She got to open up for Guns N’ Roses over the weekend in Canada over the past weekend, and naturally, she added some Rock covers into her setlist and she pretty much killed it on everything from Motorhead to Led Zeppelin.
Check it out!
Motorhead: “Ace of Spades”
Led Zeppelin “Rock and Roll”
Joan Jett “Bad Reputation”
Pat Benetar “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”
Rolling Stones “Wild Horses”
Not too shabby, right?
It’s just fun to see this side of Carrie- who usually gives major Country Barbie Vibes- and see her let loose and get her rock on. She can totally handle it vocally and performance wise.
As a Rock and Country fan, color me impressed!
Honestly, I prefer this side of Carrie, as opposed to a lot of her Country music of late.
Not just those pipes and those legs, but getting to perform with Axl Rose (One of my Rock Idols) several times recently? I mean, DAMN, girl.
I love that Carrie has this side of her. I always wrote her off as a prissy girly-girl, but damn can she rock. Turns out she’s a big fan of Classic Rock and metal, and she can certainly deliver the goods.
It’s really cool to see the “other” side of Carrie. This combined with her love of fitness and red wine, well, hot damn, maybe we can be friends after all! She’s been gaining some serious cool points with me lately.
I’ve been rocking to Papa Roach since “Last Resort” became every wannabe angsty teens anthem in 2000. Kind of depressing that was 22 years ago, but whatever. And what I love is that they continuously put out new music that is fresh but still has their unmistakable sound.
Their latest single “No Apologies” is such an important song right now, espeically with so many suffering from mental health issues. I hope everyone has someone in their lives that they don’t need to apologize to. Things happen. People go through stuff. Being a human is hard. I like that this song touches on that, and hopefully helps someone in the end.
After almost 30 years, Papa Roach is still getting it done. Also, their new album “Ego Trip” is out now.
Ok, so maybe it’s not brand new… but when it hit, I was on vacation, and it’s still new enough to Rock radio that I wanted to give it a mention.
I’m a longtime Three Days Grace fan. They’ve consistently put out great, radio-friendly rock songs over the past couple of decades (which makes me feel old AF) and their new song “Lifetime” is another surefire #1. It’s got a great sound, hell of a message, and triggers emotion. And the video has me wishing I wore waterproof mascara today.
The overall message is one I can’t stress enough.
Appreciate all you have. It could be gone in a heartbeat.
