I just realized that I only listen to the radio when I’m in the car. All the other times I’m streaming music! I can honestly say that all of my current music obsessions I found through Spotify and YouTube! I think that streaming has definitely opened the door for so many artists.
And my latest find has definitely not disappointed. Who would that be? Well the extremely talented and gifted Josh Phillips. He’s relatively new to Nashville and has a sound that is a little different (in a good way) then most of the music being played. Josh has a way if translating every emotion a human being can possibly feel in every single song he sings. It’s the perfect combination of Country and Rock. I love it because not a whole lot of artists are doing that. I first found Josh on IG and listened to a clip of him covering Keith Whitley’s “Don’t Close Your Eyes“, wow is all I could say. I then searched YouTube, Facebook and Spotify and have now literally listened to every single thing he’s sang. (Not a stocker I promise!!!!!!) But the one song that really hit me was his cover of “Tin Man”, I may or may not have teared up just a little. The truth in his voice is there and you definitely feel it every time he sings. His voice reminds me of Johnny Cash to be just completely honest!
Plus he’s also very handsome, seriously way better then any guy on The Bachelorette!
Be sure to check out Josh on Spotify and give him a follow.

There are only a few things that come along in life that make you stop and say to yourself, “Life’s pretty dang good”; well one of those things would be winning the lottery and the other is when FGL releases not one but TWO, brand spanking new songs on a flipping Friday!
I personally think that the guys from FGL need an award or maybe a street named after them, I mean something.
“Simple” is one of the two and I have to say I really do love this song. I literally can’t turn it off. It’s such a different sound then what we normally hear from the guys and guess what it works. Something about it makes you want to sit in a rocking chair on a front porch in South Georgia with some lemonade 🍋.
“Simple” is literally just that.
It’s Friday y’all and here’s my pick for one of the best videos and songs out right now!!
I love this video because it takes you all around Nashville. It’s black and white and just plain smooth! Jon Langston definitely killed this one and BTW his bro Andrew Langston shot the video, talk about some major #Skillz!!
If your Monday needs to end then take a break and watch Chris Young’s new video for “Hangin’ On”. Also be sure to get Chris’s latest album “Losing Sleep“!!!!
The only thing that I have to say about this one is VIDEO OF THE YEAR!!!
Okay y’all I’m back. You know that feeling of should I or shouldn’t I!! Well that’s been me since May. About four years ago I had a this vision or dream whatever lol, that I should start a country music blog where I would promote new and upcoming artists, new music reviews and do some artist interviews! Well when it’s not paying the bills and maybe the traffic on it isn’t as good as you wanted, doubts start poping up. But after much thought it came to me. Why not do it? You love doing it and your good at it! Plus last night I was listening to the Chasing Glory podcast and Noah Galloway was on there. He gave me some MAJOR inspiration! So here is the first of many posts!!!
“Free Drinks” by Faren Rachels is an awesome upbeat breakup kinda song. I think everyone has had that one ex that they keep going back to over and over and over! Faren talks about how this guy is just as bad as “Free Drinks”. What I love most is her voice, it’s super unique and talk about sassy! I came across Faren’s page a few months ago when I looking up Luke Combs and Riley Green. She was opening for one of them and ever since I’ve been hooked! I’m a definite fan and I can’t wait to see what else she’ll be coming out with!!
So what are you waiting for go follow her Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat @farenrachels! And don’t forget to go listen and buy her music!!
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!!
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
Hey Y’all Bailey Anne here with your song of the week.
New comer and one of my favorites Michael Ray has a song by the name “This Love; okay let’s get down to it. Not only is this cleverly wrote but it appeals to both guys and girls. For guys this is how most of y’all probably feel about your girl and for a girl this is how we want a guy to feel about us. Aside from being totally relatable it has a great beat and lyrics that flow. Perfect for back road karaoke, wether you’re a redneck Romeo with your tan legged Juliette or a southern belle with your good ol boy, give it a listen it could possibly end up your theme song.

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 Twitter, IG, Snapchat, iHeartRadio and RileyGreenMusic.com!
