Rolling Stones Feat. Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder “Sweet Sounds of Heaven”

I have been waiting on this drop for weeks since I heard it was going to happen.

The Rolling Stones have teamed up with Lady Gaga and Stevie Wonder for a song called “Sweet Sounds of Heaven” and it’ll take you to church whether you’re a believer or not!

Duddddeee… I was NOT expecting that. But I like it. A lot.

Mick sounds great, as does Gaga (always!) and Stevie tickling the ivories… definitely adding this one to the playlist!

Of course, “Sweet Sounds of Heaven” is off their upcoming album “Hackney Diamonds” out October 20th.

I don’t know about you, but I’m excited for more.

Rolling Stones for Life!

Dolly Parton Feat. Linda Perry “What’s Up”

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.

I grew up on those songs, and most of them still give me a seratonin pop when I hear them.

Here’s a couple that I personally have never enjoyed:

Peter Gabriel “Sledgehammer”:

And “Beth” by KISS:

Just, no. Also, Beth was probably sick of her dude running around cheating on her with a thousand chicks. #TeamBeth all day.

What Rock song or album can you not stand?

Comment below!


Carrie Underwood ROCKS!

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.

Can we get a Rock album next?

I’d so be down.

Or at least a Carrie/Axl collab on a song.

Come on, universe. Make it happen!



Foo Fighters “Under You”

Have I mentioned that I love the Foo Fighters? Maybe a thousand times?

Well, they just dropped a new song called “Under You” and it is a perfect tribute to the late Taylor Hawkins.

Sentimental, lyrically on-point, and with the signature Foo sound that has made the band a staple for decades.

“Someone said I’ll never see your face again
Part of me just can’t believe it’s true
Pictures of us sharing songs and cigarettes
This is how I’ll always picture you”

Those lyrics just hit hard.

The Foo Fighters will release their new album- their first studio effort without Taylor- on June 2nd.

Bittersweet for sure, but I’m happy they are continuing as a band, and using music to heal.

After all, it’s the best medicine there is!

Axl Rose and Carrie Underwood Rocking Out!

I’m really envious of Carrie Underwood.

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.


Oooohhhh… maybe a Rock album is in her future?

I would support the fire out of that.


Metallica “If Darkness Had a Son”

I’ve been posting a lot of Country stuff lately, so here’s one for all of my rockers.

Metallica just dropped a new single this morning, and of course it will rock your face.

Presenting… “If Darkness Had a Son”:

Damnnnnn… I enjoyed all 7+ minutes of that!  I was feeding my baby when I listened to it for the first time on my phone this morning, and he was all about it, too.

Raising the kid right.


Metallica’s new album “72 Seasons” is out April 14th, and let’s just say it’s promising.

Papa Roach “No Apologies”



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.

Three Days Grace “Lifetime”

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.

I’m gonna go cry some more now.
