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!
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!!
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!!
Music videos have a way of making a song mean something that you would never have felt by just listening to it.
Sometimes they’re funny, cute, romantic, and then sometimes they are simply real life. Most of the time they are just like mini movies with actor’s and even a script. But then an artist will come out with a video that is real. It’s telling their story. And Chase Rice did just that. I don’t think this video could be anymore real.
When I first saw it I was in tears and to be totally honest that doesn’t happen often to me. I don’t think I can even put it into words just how powerful this song/video are.
It’s simple and powerful!
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!”
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’!!
Y’all it’s Friday and well who doesn’t want to listen to some old school Brett Eldredge?? I mean honestly it never gets old!!
It’s been two years since I started this blog!! I’m still trying to figure out where the time has gone!!
Lets go back to where it all began.
Chris Young had just released “I’m Comin’ Over” and I was searching the internet for some reviews or something just so I could get a feel for it. Well I found nothing, but some uninformed angry bloggers that probably have like thirty cats. It was all nagitive. And when I went searching for some up and coming artists/bands, well you gussed that wasn’t even possible because apparently no one talks about all of the newbies! So I started racking my mind after I did a ton of complaining. Then that little voice went off in my head and well here I am. I then launched “Southern Princess Problems”. I taught myself how to work WordPress (not an easy task). I also let my inner journalist go nuts and I read about a million articles on how to run a successful blog! Then about a year later I changed the name to, “The Typzee Gypzee”, why well because it’s more my style. Plus my mom had came up with it like three years before for another business I had wanted to do. It has been so much fun. I have gotten to listen to some really amazing music. I have had the privilege of interviewing the next big things that are going to be in Nashville.
Huge shout-out to all my followers and readers!! I also want to thank every single artist/band that has been apart of my interviews and dealt with my crazy!! I wish you all the best!!!
I also want to thank my amazing mama for teaching me everything about writing and for encouraging me to continue!!
And thank you to everyone in Country Music for making the best music there is!!
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

Until Next Time,
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!!
