I have two sides country and club jamz. Honestly if it’s remixed and super digital I’ll go there. You know what I’m talking about when it comes to club jamz. But when it comes to what I listen to on a daily basis it’s always country. I tried to branch out and I listened to the ‘Today’s Hits’ on Spotify. Well at the 50 second mark of the third song I turned it to Riley Green.
I started to think about it. I mean what is it about country that has grabbed my attention like it has. Is it the rawness, the truth or the simple fact that it’s just good music. Well, it’s all three and then some. When you listen to a country song you know the truth behind every single lyric. How many times have you actually ever been in a club and left with whoever was there and how would you still be able to stand up after all these shots?!?!? I haven’t ever done that but I have been to a bonfire or two, I was raised in church with some manners and I’ve spent more time driving around with the radio blasting then I can remember. And honestly pop music doesn’t do any of that. When you turn on some country it becomes more of a soundtrack rather then a dream. I guess you could say that if you live your life like a country song then you’re living a dream.
I grew up in California and yes I’ve done all of the California stuff like spending weeks at the beach, I’ve been to the snow, I’ve been to the Santa Cruz board walk, I’ve been to Disneyland, Huntington Beach, San Francisco and the list goes on and on. Those places were fun and all but the bonfires in my backyard listening to the radio were way better and free! At one point I wanted to live in NYC and then my family and I had to go to the Bay area and on the way back home we got stuck in traffic. As we sat there I looked around and my whole mind changed. No one looked happy and everyone were on their phones not paying attention to anything around them. I wanted to freak out. The only difference about growing up in California was that I lived in the central valley where all of the food is grown. So I got to do all of those typical California things but I also lived on a few orange groves, I was in 4-H, my dad has always worked in agriculture. I got a taste of both worlds. There is just something in a country song that calls to me. It just seems natural to live life like a country song rather than a Justin Bieber song.
So when you think about it, country music is more of a lifestyle ratheer then it is a business. I mean I don’t know many country artists that are ‘One Hit Wonders’.
So the next time someone asks you why you listen to so much country music just tell them it’s a way of life!
I know it’s Monday and we all wish it wasn’t! So you can so one of two things:
- Pretend you’re in China so now it’s magically Tuesday
- Or drink some coffee and jam out to some JT and Stapleton!!
You can thank me later!!
Want to know what William Michael Morgan is watching right now then check out the video below!!
It’s Wednesday or hump day!! And the only thing that gets me through the day is music!!
So here are a few of my go to’s:
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!
Cole did it again yes he put out another single that is AMAZING!! I can’t turn the thing off!! I don’t about you but after hearing this one I can’t wait to hear what’s going to be on the next album!
So it’s Monday and we all wish it was 4:30pm on Friday, but unfortunately it’s not. Don’t panic you’ll make it through. And to make it to 5pm here’s a video from Mr. William Michael Morgan talking about recording and new music:
When it comes to music the most important thing is the magic of the earbud. It’s so small and delicate that it must be handled with the utmost respect and love. But those little things are also quite possibly the most difficult thing that has ever been invented; you don’t believe me try and untangle them in the dark!!
Earbuds are just as vidal as some major organs like the liver or the kidneys! For me I honestly can’t function properly in my daily routine without them. I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s the simple fact that I have to face the real world head on without my own personal sound track! Whatever the reason I need earbuds to live peacefully in this crazy world. So one might come to realize that when my earbuds break it’s a very trying time for my sanity.
But the other day something happened that could only happen to me. It was Saturday morning and my parents, siblings and myself needed to clean out the garage. Because we are getting ready to move from California to Tennessee, (I’ll explain that in another post). No biggie, it was Saturday morning I had my morning coffee, and my makeup was on point. I put in my earbuds, turned on some Easton Corbin (mildly obsessed) and I was ready to get my clean on. Now you must know when I listen to music it’s as high as I can get it and I dance like a drunk girl on night three of CMA Fest and Luke Bryan just sang “Shake It For Me”. So anyway I needed to warm up my jeans and fluff them a bit in the dryer because who has time to iron. Okay I’ve done it like a million times, little did I know this time would be very different from those pervious jean fluffs!
Three Easton songs later and I’m now jamming out to “Lovin’ You Is Fun”, as if he wrote it to me. I go to the dryer open the door, grab my jeans and BAM, I got shocked. The jolt went through my MP3 player, (yes I still have mine from highschool), up the cable and right into my earbuds! IT SHOCKED THE INSIDE OF MY EAR!!! I might have screamed and it kinda freaked my mom out who was on the other side of the house. Who gets shocked through earbuds?? I didn’t even think that was a thing!! I may have reacted like the guy in the Bible that had his ear cut off, but seriously it was painful and it freaked me out. My ear is still hurting and it’s been a week!! Then after all of that my earbuds stopped working completely! Let’s just think about this a moment; I either have the worst luck in the world and somehow these things always happen to me or Easton Corbin is so great it’s “shocking”. I truly think it’s a combination of both but what do I know, I’m just a girl with a sore ear and broken earbuds!
Until next time!!
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!”
The only thing that I have to say about this one is VIDEO OF THE YEAR!!!
Y’all 2017 is almost over and it’s been crazy! Trump is still president, which has ticked off a ton of people, way too funny. We’ve endured some major heartbreak with Hurricanes, Mass shootings by cowards, terrorist attacks and much more.
In many ways this year has taught us that we need to love on our family and friends a lot more and that we need to run after our dreams!!
What is one way we can get through it all? Well, in my opinion that’s with music. And for me that’s specifically country music. I have to be honest I almost gave up on my dream of what I want The Typzee Gypzee to be. I have so many plans and dreams. But that stupid thought that comes in and tells you to forget about it, came in and set up a freaking camp site. I was almost done with it all. But then the heartbreaking attack that in Las Vegas happened and it hit me hard. We only get one life and we can waste it. So in memory of those that lost their lives while having a good time, I’m going to make something out of The Typzee Gypzee! I’m not going to let the unknown hold me back. And I’m going to start by blogging the crap out of this thing. Making life a little better with some super funny stories and all that kind of stuff!!!
What are you waiting for go follow your dreams, I mean what do you have to lose???
And speaking of someone that didn’t give up on their dreams, Mr. Chase Rice has a new album out after a long three years! Enjoy his new song ‘One Love, One Kiss, One Drink, One Song’ it’s also one of my favorites from his new album ‘Lambs and Lions’!!
