#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!”

2017 Has Been CRAZY…

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. And best of all I’m moving to Nashville!! Yup I said it, I’M MOVING TO NASHVILLE!! I’ve been wanting to do this for such a long time so why not. And the best part, my family is also coming. I’m not doing this one alone. All I know is it’s going to be a party! So stay tuned!!

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’!!

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!

So as you can tell ‘Lambs and Lions’ is definitely #GypzeeApproved!!

CR247~ Episode 6

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!!

Enjoy,

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!

~2017 Baby~

Follow me: IG/Twitter @TheTypzeeGypzee & on Snapchat username: hollandgibson

I did something no one in the social media world would ever do, I took four months off!!

Yes, I put down the phone, computer, tablet, etc.

Why, well I was at a total road block. I couldn’t write to save my life. If my posts were a food they would’ve been a freaking Fruit Cake and we all know what people do with Fruit Cake!

It was a good four months. I made some major plans for The Typzee Gypzee for this upcoming year. First I’m going to make a huge effort to create a community of Gypzee’s who are as crazy about country music, fashion, college football, fitness, food, and family as I am. I want this to be a fun family! Second my posts are going to have a new vibe! New as in all me and no filter! 

So much is in the works for 2017 and I can’t wait to tell y’all about it! Stay Tuned!

Holland aka The Typzee Gypzee
