#FBF Featuring Chris Young…

It’s almost Christmas y’all and I am so excited.🎄Christmas marks the end of a year and what a year it has been. First my family is moving across the country. Yup we’re heading east, goodbye Cali! Its been a long time coming, but we’re getting ready. So if you happen to see an over loaded UHall and a minivan with way to many kids in it say hi; we’re going to need witnesses because my mom is probably going to be on the verge of leaving us in the Arizona dessert.

But one of the best parts about 2017 was Chris Young being inducted into the Opry. I was so excited to hear the news! So I thought why not look back at where it all started for him. Yes you may recall the show Nashville Star. I do and I remember voting for him. 

Lets give him a huge round of applause for not only winning Nashville Star but also now becoming the newest member of The Grand Ole Opry!!

I mean without Chris I wouldn’t have ever started this site!! So in the words of Brad Paisley “Welcome To The Zoo!”



Xoxo, Holland


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.

∆Review “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To∆

I am a true believer that Billy Currington does not get enough play!!! But this song is going to change all of that!!!
I’ve been a fan of his since before he was swinging on a Chandler with Shania!!

So when I heard his new single “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To” I was so excited!!
This song is on point from the lyric, to the vocal, to the band!!
Every single part if this song is amazing!!

The beginning of this song starts with a mid tempo jam about how his ex hurt him! Then the chorus hits and it hits you right in the heart and you’re like who in the world would ever dump Billy Currington!?!?!?! It says what we all want to after a bad break up!!!

I would have to say that this is one of the best vocals that I’ve heard from Billy, it makes me wonder if this song has a story behind it!!!!

I watched an interview that Billy did with One Country and apparently this song was wrote and recorded in just a few hours!!! That’s what I call genuine country music!!!
Check out the interview here!!!

So here’s my advice if you just went through a bad break up; get in the car, turn on this song as high as it’ll go and drive!!! It’ll make you feel better trust me!!!!

Follow Billy and keep up with all the music:

Dierks Bentley’s 8th studio album “Black” is set to drop May 27th (digital April 1at). Just in time for summer!

And if “Somewhere On A Beach” is any insight on what we’ll hear on the album I know it’s going to rock!!

Dierks shared with MusicRow.com some insight on what we can look forward to hearing,
“It’s a relationship album that covers the ups and downs of the journey and ends with some self-realization and evolvement,” shared Bentley. “The song ‘Black’ helps set all of that in motion at the top of the album by guiding you into the darkness and the shadows of the night. The same guy who sings ‘Somewhere on a Beach’ winds up growing and having enough perspective to sing something introspective like ‘Different for Girls.’ By the last song, he’s taking a look back on love and life.”

Black” also features some super amazing artists Elle King (my newest obsession), Maren Morris (she’ll be on tour with Keith Urban this summer), Natalie Hemby (Pistol Annies), Hillary Lindsey (writer if “Jesus Take The Wheel and “American Honey”), Jessi Alexander and Trombone Shorty.
