Album Review ‘Lambs and Lions’ Chase Rice…

What do you get when a record label controls your career for three years, Jack Daniels is just as important to you as water and you’re the only country music Pat Mcafee will listen to! Well you must be Chase Rice and you just released one of the best albums of 2017, cue ‘Lambs and Lions’. And if you don’t believe me then go buy the dang thing!

It’s not often when a record label micromanages your career almost to the point of disappearance that you come back three years later and chart next to Thomas Rhett and Chris Stapleton. But when your name is Chase Rice those things happen to you. 

If you don’t know Chase’s story then read on. Several years ago Chase lost his father suddenly, suffered a major injury that ended his football career right as it was getting started, worked for Hendricks Motor Sports on the pitcrew, then he made his way to Nashville and ended up co-writing one of the biggest country music singles ever to be released, you might have heard of it you know ‘Cruise’ by Florida Georgia Line. It’s that one that was blasting out of every single car and truck that drove down the road.

‘Lambs and Lions’ has a little bit of everything from pump-up to breakup to hook up and everything in between.

Track Listing Review:

‘Lions’ should be played in every single lockeroom right before all of the upcoming bowl games this season! Enough said!

‘Amen’ is a sweet song that will take you back to every moment you don’t ever want to forget. And whenever you add a choir you know it’s going to be on point!

‘Eyes On You’ is a such a cute song. Ladies listen up. If your man doesn’t do what this song says then go get a new man!

‘Saved Me’ will make you melt and it should be in a movie. It’s not often that Chase gets sentimental but this one is definitely the one in this album. Much like ‘Carolina Can’ and ‘Jack Daniels and Jesus’ was on the pervious albums.

If you’ve heard ‘Ride’ and ‘Whisper’, then you’ll love ‘On Tonight’; plus you can listen to this one with your grandma!

‘One Love, One Kiss, One Drink, One Song’  If you’re drinking and want to text your ex, stop put the phone down and go listen to this song ASAP!

‘Unforgettable’ is a breakup sequel to ‘Whisper’ in my opinion.

‘This Cowboy’s Hat’ (feat. Ned LeDoux) Yes this was originally Chris LeDoux’s song and let me say these two did an amazing job. Totally did this one justice. Ned does the talking and Chase does the singing.

‘Three Cords and The Truth’ If someone ever asks you why you listen to Country music, right before you go and delete them from Facebook and block them on Twitter/IG because you don’t need that kind of negativity, have them go and listen to this song it explains it perfectly.

‘Jack Daniels Showed Up’ Well well well this just wouldn’t be a complete Chase Rice album without the appearance of Jack Daniels somewhere and low and behold it’s right in the title! This song is funny and oh so true!!

Get ‘Lambs and Lions’ here!

Okay so I’ve been a huge fan of Chase Rice for a while ​now! And no it’s not just because he’s​ super handsome and his voice will make you weak in the knees. Because honestly I heard his music way before I ever saw his face or ever heard him speak!!

One thing I love is when artists let us see a little glimpse into their lives! Wow that sounded just a little stockerish sorry!!

Anyway Chase has a really cool thing that he does while he’s on tour. It’s a mini webshow type series called CR247 on YouTube! It’s awesome and it shows just how awesome Chase and his crew are!! Make sure to subscribe to his page and get notified when they post a new video! Or check back here because I’ll be posting them as soon as they’re uploaded!!

New Music Alert

📷: @BrettEldredge IG

New music will be coming our way from the very talented Brett Eldredge.

Brett’s self-tiled third studio album will be coming out on August 4th. You can preorder here.

In a resent interview with Taste Of County, Brett talked about the new Album:

“It’s kind of crazy to see an album cover with just your name on it,” he says. “I think that shows what I want to say with this album. Maybe it takes a little bit of guts to put out a self-titled album — but if it’s 100% honestly you, then that should come across through the music. That’s my name and I hope my fans love me for me. Hopefully they feel the connection of these songs and they help them through their everyday lives. Because that’s why I make this music.

April Music Obsession

April is here and well I have some new music obsessions. You know the kind that you can’t seem to turn off. I mean it’s all you’re listening to. You’ve watched the videos like a million times, you’ve used up all of your data and are considering buying more! 

So here are some of mine! 

Brett Eldredge ‘Something ​I’m Good At’
In a resent interview with People at the ACM’s, the very talented, handsome Snapchat super dude Mr. Brett Eldredge; said that he’s ready to find that one special lady! And since I’m getting ready to make the move east near Nashville, you never know I might get lucky!

Ryan Hurd ‘City Girl’
Okay where in the feaking world has this song been?!? I mean honestly I literaly just heard it like two weeks ago! I’m so mad that I haden’t heard it sooner! I can’t turn the thing off! If you haven’t heard it get with it’s AMAZING!!!

Miranda Lambert ‘We Should Be Friends’
Okay anytime girl we can be besties! Xoxo

Luke Combes ‘Hurricane’
WTF this song hurts my heart​ and makes me need a strong drink!! Plus ugh I hate her!!!

Riley Green ‘Almost’  This song isn’t his newest, but it’s my favorite!! I love it so much that​ I let SoundCloud suck my data for the month dry!!! Listen HERE

It’s Riley Tuesday

It’s Tuesday and I want to be at the beach. 

Since that was said I can now move on to a pressing issue and that would be Riley Green’s new single “Georgia Time”.

Where do I start? How about with the lyrics. The story this song takes you through sounds like it would be an amazing movie. 
What I love about this song is how true it really is.
How many times have you given your whole heart to someone, just to find out that for them it ment nothing. We’ve all been there.
What I like about this song and all of Riley’s others; is how true and raw they all are. Riley is defentely what I would classify as a True Country.
To many times you hear a song that has a good beat but the lyrics, passion and truth are lacking. I can’t wait to hear what else he’ll be realising!!

And no I am not in love with song because he talks about the Tide!! Well maybe just a little!!

Ladies let your man hunt or fish!

Okay so I’m pretty sure that one of the biggest issues in relationships is the subject of hunting and fishing! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard ladies complain and down right freak out if their other half wants to hunt or fish. 

What is the big deal? I mean honestly, why is it such an issue? Here’s how I look at it, men love it that’s a fact! I’ve heardtalk just as some guys talk about hunting and fishing just as passionately as they do about their GF’s and wives! They’re in love with it! Every single guy in County Music has at least on reference to it. Heck Luke Bryan even named his song “Huntin’ Fishen’ and Loving Every Day”

Men need to release some of that cavemanlyness that builds up over time. It’s true, one weekend away they’ll come back all ready for some “alone” time!! #DateNight

Ladies let them go because when they come back they’ll spoil you with some; hey get your mind out of the gutter this post is PG 😉. I was going to say attention!!

Plus men in camo are far better than some guy in loafers! What’s hotter then a guy with a gun or bow and scruff, I can’t think of anything!!

So next time let your man wants to get his hunt or fish on, let him!! Trust me you’ll think me later! Plus when he’s gone go do something fun with your girls!! CountryLiving came up with a great​ list of “26 Under-The-Radar Southern Girlfriend Getaway Towns”.
