Song Of The Week~ ‘The Way I Talk’

When my mom says she likes a new country song well you’d think that hell was frozen! My mom is super picky on her music and only a few make the cut! So when she told me that she loves Morgan​ Wallen’s song “The Way I Talk”, I had to take a second listen!!! And I’m also loving this one!!

So Morgan congratulations you did it! We’re fans!!! Keep them coming!!

Why I Love Murphy Elmore! 

Hey Hey It’s Bailey Anne coming at you with a new artist and music review 😉

Okay y’all I was on YouTube and stumbled across Murphy Elmore! 

And let me tell you I am officially a fan and totally in love with his song, “Whoever broke your heart”! One listen and you’ll know what I’m talking about! (Not that I only listened to it once, it was more like 8 or 10 times! 😉😍)

It’s a clever and amazing song. Its basically music’s best kept secret in my book because I’m just now finding out about it. Murphy Elmore is the next big thing you can quote me on that 😉; Not only is the man a very talented singer but ladies he is one handsome devil let me tell you, just look at him and try to tell me different… LOL

New Music Alert

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

Xoxo, Holland

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!!

Get his music here!

That SHUT THE FRONT DOOR Music Moment

Well it happened, guys I’ve just found the best song ever released. I’m definitely dealing with a major case of replay!! 

I can literally count on one had the songs that I don’t and won’t ever get sick of listening to and well “City Girl” by Ryan Hurd is my latest obsession. It’s so good that I’m almost speechless. And I’m like super ticked off that I just found out about Ryan in December. I mean why are the radio stations not playing him?

I do want to thank Jake Owen for the exposure!

People go listen to this song like RIGHT NOW!!

New Artist Alert~

Have you ever heard an artist and it changes your whole day for the better??

That happened this week. I was looking at clothes on Pinterest that I’ll never wear, when I got a message from a new independent record label, Silverado Records; asking if I would review some new music. If you know me then you know that I jumped at this!!

First off I’m pretty sure Zack Dyer is the best thing that has come out of Minneapolis like ever (If you know of anything else let me know)! Second his music is amazing! 

Zack has a sound that takes you on a mental vacation as soon as you turn it on. They sent me four songs and when I was getting ready to write this I was trying to pick one that I’d focus on and well I can’t​! He’s literally that good.

The first song that I listened to was “P.O.S”, this tells the real story about your first car, that most of have have all gone through. Usually your first car is a pile of junk and well you and your crew have to make the best of it! Zack does an awesome job of making you feel like it wasn’t that bad. Plus the music on this track is amazing and I found myself listening to this on repeat just so I could hear the guitar!

“All American” and “Heartland” are such sweet songs. I am a huge fan of party/club country, but sometimes you need a slowdown and get back to earth. “All American” is definitely a dirt road dancing kinda jam. If you had to explain the USA with a single song “Heartland” would be it!

“Wishful Drinking” is not your average brokenhearted country song. There seems to be a million breakup songs, but this one is different! I can’t seem to put my finger on it but all I know is if you’re going through a breakup get the Jack D out, hit repeat and don’t call your EX! I just listened to it again, nevermind call your EX!!

I can’t wait to hear what Zack comes out with next! He’s definitely one to watch!

A huge shout-out to Silverado Records for connecting!!

~Artist Of The Week~ (1/23/2017)

📷: @RileyDuckman IG

I was on Twitter not really doing anything. Actually I was  complaining about the new FGL song with The Backstreet Boys (that’s a whole other story!)

When someone tweeted about Riley Green. Apparently he’s Alabama’s best kept secret. Not really he won Season 5 of Redneck Island. I guess I was the only one that hasn’t heard him! That’s what I get for taking a break from social media!!

Well if you haven’t heard Riley you really need to!! 

Check out his original song “Georgia Time” it’s one of my favorites of his!!

P.S I’m working on setting up an Artist Spotlight with him!! 

P.P.S he’s also extremely handsome!! Check out what out friends over at Whiskey Riff had to say about Mr. Green!! Ladies he’s 6’4, has blue eyes and a southern drawl, plus if I was in Vegas I’d bet he treats his mama right!!

Follow Riley on TwitterIGSnapchatiHeartRadio and RileyGreenMusic.com!

∆Artist Spotlight∆ With Sugar Ponies❣❣

📷: Sugar Ponies

Do you ever come across a new artist or band and something about them just turns you into an instant fan??

For me that doesn’t happen often (I’m just a tad picky on my music!), But when it does it’s awesome!! I was on Twitter and this new duo had just followed me first their name got me hooked; I mean if a Twitter account follows you and it’s name is @SugarPonies you check it out and boy am I glad I did!!

The Sugar Ponies are an awesome up and coming Country/Pop/Rock band from the most unlikely place to find a Country/Pop/Rock band; San Francisco!! Yes, San Fran has other things besides sourdough bread bowls and awesome hippie’s!! And no one I know that lives in California actually calls it San Fran, odd but that’s a whole other story!

So once I fell in love with their name I just had to feature them in this week’s ∆Artist Spotlight∆!

Be sure to check them out you’ll regret it if you don’t!!

INTERVIEW

Q1. Okay so I’m in love with your name, how’d y’all come up with it?

“Thank you!

Well, we were going to be the Pony Tail Girls, because Suzanne and another member of the band had pony tails, but then she left, so then we were going to be the Pony Girls, but that turned out to be a group of ladies very much unlike us (plus they owned all the good URLs), my friend suggested the Sugar Ponies and it sounded perfect!”


Q2. Being from Cali I know how country music has a strong but small fan base, how did you decide on country?

The moment that Suzanne heard Randy Travis’s “1982”, she became a country music singer. That’s all it took. She’s probably covered 200 country songs, live. She absolutely LOVES country music!!! Also the first music that Michael started playing on guitar was Bluegrass!”

Q3. Who are some of your biggest influences?

Patty Loveless, Alison Kraus, Lucinda Williams, Paul Simon, and then some you might not expect like XTC, Ella Fitzgerald, and The Who.”

Q4. How would you best describe your music?

“altPOPcountryFolkROCK That’s our tag line. But in English 🙂 … I’d say we write about love and relationships… emotions and challenges. Our songs are catchy and melodic… good driving and singing along songs!”

Q5. How do you get into the writing mood?

We often pour a glass of pinot, put on some Barry White… oh wait, that’s not right. Honestly the muse tends to visit when we’re not trying too hard to write. But once we start, we approach it as a task that needs serious focus and completion.”

Q6. What’s been your favorite show you’ve done so far?

That was probably our first show at the Rockwood Music Hall in NYC in February 2016. The room was packed with friends, family and fans. It’s so great to play to a room filled with love! Suzanne’s mom and dad were at that show, which made it the best ever!”


Q7. Besides country what other music do you like to sing?

I love to sing jazz standards and pop music from the ‘70s!”


Q8. When did you know you wanted to make music?

Suzanne: Since I can remember! I’ve been singing my whole life.

Michael started when he was a freshman in college.”


Q9. Life gets crazy especially in the music industry, what is your favorite thing to do on your days off?

Relaxing! We love having free time when we can put the phone down, stop thinking about  ToDo’s, spend time with family and friends. Michael likes BBQing and jamming with friends. Suz likes watching british detective dramas.”


Q10. We all have bad first jobs. What were your first jobs and were they awful?

Suzanne: When I was 16 or so I worked at a one-off fast food restaurant called Aprils. It was awful. I always left work smelling like a french fry. I think I lasted one month there!

Michael: My first job after college was working as a video editor at a cable station. My first project was taking 50 hours of home made video taken by the owners of a large feedlot and editing it into training videos for butchers over a Thanksgiving day weekend.  I didn’t eat meat for many months after that.”


Q11. What was the best advice you’ve ever gotten about your music?

Start with your story, write it down, get it right, then turn it into lyrics. The story is the most important part. That’s what touches people. Keep it personal!”


Q12. How many instruments do you play and what are they?

Suzanne: My voice, guitar, flute, and some percussion.

Michael: guitars, bass, mandolin, and a little bit of keyboards. And I love to play drums. I’m terrible, but I love playing them.”


Q13. Favorite place to eat in San Francisco?

So many to choose from! Oh I know… there’s this awesome italian place up on Nob Hill called Venticello. It’s very cozy, european, and has awesome pasta!”


Q14. Besides music what else could you see yourselves doing for a living?

I’m really into decorative cabinet knobs and was thinking of starting a blog called “Hobnobbing with the Knob Snob Blog” Michael used to do visual effect and would probably go back to doing  that.”

Q15. Favorite venue to play?

Bazaar Cafe in San Francisco, or if given the opportunity, Madison Square Garden in NYC.”

Q16. Favorite movie?

“Tootsie, Some Like It Hot, Murder on the Orient Express, My Fair Lady, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Annie Hall, Touch of Evil.”


Q17. If you could duet with anyone (living or passed) who would it be?

Suzanne: Abraham Lincoln.”

Q18. What else does 2016 have in store for y’all?

We just started working with New Artist Development at Gramophone Media. The have a lot of exciting opportunities in store for us, including a super cool event happening in November in NYC. We’re going to be part of the WFUV series On Your Radar at the Rockwood Music Hall stage 3 on November 15th!

We’ll be announcing more stuff via social media as it unfolds.”
