Slash and Chris Stapleton Cover Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well”

Well, this was a pleasant surprise this morning.

Slash and Chris Stapleton just released a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well” and it’s absolutely killer.

I mean, really, how can you go wrong with Slash and Chris?

Simple. You can’t.

Seriously, how badass is that?

The collab is off of Slash’s new solo project “Orgy of the Damned” which comes out on May 17th.

So, basically, Slash shredding as he does, with dfferent vocalists on each song, like his last solo project.

Sounds pretty damn promising.

Also, Chris Stapleton will be the musical guest on “Saurday Night Live” tomorrow night, with Ryan Gosling as the host.

If they don’t do a version of “I’m Just Ken”, I’ll be sorely disappointed.

“I’m Just Ken” Oscar Performance

Ok, I’ll be honest here… I’m not that much into The Oscars.

BUTTTT… when I heard that Ryan Gosling was going to perform his hit song from the “Barbie” movie “I’m Just Ken”, well, that got my attention.

Another unpopular opinion of mine: I didn’t think the “Barbie” movie was that great. I know, I know, retract my woman card right now. I wanted to love it, because, hello BARBIE!!!  But I personally was left feeling “meh”. Although, let’s be real, Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling nailed their roles, the entire storyline- for me- was just OK.

That being said, I did love the “I’m Just Ken” song, and Ryan Gosling’s portrayal of Ken was perfect.  And so was the performace of the song last night at “The Oscars”!

Especially as Ryan Gosling was joined by Slash and Wolfgang Van Halen.

Pretty freaking cool.

This made me love Ryan Gosling even more. And I feel like I should buy my hsuabnd a bedazzled hot pink suit now. I’m sure he will heartily disagree.

And this somg will be back in my head all day, as well as yours, so you’re welcome.

Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute at CMT Music Awards

Last night my husband and I were watching the CMT Music Awards, and I ended up going to bed a little early. It was a long weekend, and I was just done.  While I was getting ready to fall asleep, my husband had to run upstairs and tell me that I missed a badass performance (Of course I did) featuring lots of legends doing a tribute to one of my favorite Classic Rock bands Lynyrd Skynyrd.  I had thought I missed it, but apparantly not!  So I had to look up the performance, and damn.

I mean, Slash, Billy Gibbons, Paul Rodgers, Cody Johnson, Warren Hayes, Chuck Levall,  Wynona Judd and LeeAnn Rimes?

Hell. Yes.

Having seen Skynyrd several times, and always enjoying the show they put on, this made my heart happy.

Also, Slash. And Cody Johnson. That’s all you really need right there.

Sadly, after the recent passing of Gary Rossington, there are no original surviving members of the band.  But their legend will live on.

There will always be someone yelling “Play Freebird” until the end of time, so there’s that.

Seriously, though, loved this!  Good call, CMT.

Rock and Country is ALWAYS a good mix!
