Tyler Hubbard, Acoustic!

Tyler Hubbard went solo this year and I am really loving his first solo single, "5 Foot 9". Then, Tyler recently announced that he relased an acoustic version of the song, and that he might even like it better than the original.

 

I do love when artists release acoustic versions of their songs, especially when they are one of your favorites. Hearing it stripped down to just vocals and just an instrument or two, is always a unique listening experience. That other take on the song versus the studio version. So, let me take a listen myself and see if I agree with Tyler.

I do! This version, in my opinion, makes it sound like even more of a love song! Take a listen!

Happy Birthday Keith Urban!

Keith Urban is one of my favorite country artists, I love his music and he is amazing in concert. Getting to meet him when he played at Blossom this summer was definitely a highlight for me and I am super grateful for that opportunity! A few years ago, I blogged my Top 5 Keith songs, so for his birthday I decided to take a look back and see if that list has changed at all since then, because my appreciation for him and his music is always evolving.

Two years ago on his birthday, this is what my Top 5 looked like:

5. "Never Comin' Down" 
4. "Somebody Like You"
3. "Where The Blacktop Ends"
2. 'Long Hot Summer"
1. "Stupid Boy" 

My #1 choice, I don't think, will ever change. "Stupid Boy" is such a great song, I could always listen to that one on repeat, and hearing it acoustic I love it even more. But, my Top 5 songs have changed slightly as I have continued to listen to his music over the last two years, plus seeing him in concert, and new releases all factoring in, so I'm gonna freshen this up! Of course, everytime I hear "Brown Eyes Baby" I am singing along in the studio or the car, but this list will be prior to his current single!

In honor of Keith's 55th birthday, here are my current Top 5 songs of his:

5. "Wild Hearts"

4. "We Were" 

3. "Where The Blacktop Ends" 

2. "Who Wouldn't Want To Be Me" 

1. "Stupid Boy" 

 

Can I throw in an honorable mention? Sure I can, it's my blog! "Cop Car", the more I listen to that one, the more I love it! Of course, I'll also add the songs I switched out on the old list for the current list. Ahhh, I should have done a Top 10! Anyway, happy birthday, Keith Urban, love your music!

 

Carrie Underwood just released another single to radio, this one is called "Hate My Heart". This is her second single from her latest project Denim & Rhinestones. Carrie co-wrote the new song with HARDY and songwriters Hillary Lindsey and David Garcia, and is about trying to get over a break up where in her head she is over him, but her heart is not.

Happy Back To The Future Day!

Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads.

Back To The Future is my favorite movie trilogy of all time. For me, it's the concept of time travel, the space/time continuum, and how cool 1955 was. Sounds like the original is my favorite out of all three? It is, but I have all three movies and will watch them back to back at any given time. I will obviously watching them later on today to celebrate Back To The Future Day!

Why this date for Back To The Future Day? Because it was October 21, 2015 that Doc, Marty McFly, and Jennifer Parker traveled to the future in a DeLorean time machine at the begining of Back To The Future II (I won't expand on why, in case of a spoiler for anyone who hasn't seen the movies!). Of course it was a big celebration back in 2015, but celebrated every year leading up to and after that year by fans of the movie.

In researching why screenwriter, Bob Gale, chose October 21, 2015 as the date to time travel in the second installment of the series, he chose it as the date the Chicago Cubs would theoretically win the World Series. As it turns out, he was only one year off, the Cubs would win in 2016. Great Scott!

Also, announced today, Back To The Future: The Musical

Mitchell Tenpenny just earned two #1 singles with his song "Truth About You" and his song with Chris Young "At The End of A Bar", plus he just released his new album 'This Is The Heavy' a little over a month ago. Today, he released his next single to radio, it's called "We Got History".

Mitchell says the song is about that person that you're not hung up on, but you don't have bad feelings for them either and you think about them from time to time. You've moved on, in a new relationship, but from time to time they still come back in a memory. There is no future but there is history, and there will be those flashbacks.

Tenille Arts released her new single "Jealous Of Myself", a song that tells of the sorrow of no longer being with the person that you loved and just missing them. Tenille sings about no longer being with that person and being jealous of the newly found love, she can't help it, and she sings it with such passionate vocals that you can't help but feel it too.

Enjoy Fall!

The last couple of days driving to and from the radio station, it was hard to not notice how stunning and beautiful the fall colors are right now! This morning I saw a goup of three trees, one yellow, one orange, one red, and it was really picture perfect. Of course I didn't take a picture because I was driving, maybe I'll go back later. The sun has been catching the trees just right, and a gentle wind blowing leaves across the street, it was just a moment that made me think about how lucky we are to take this in every fall in Northeast Ohio!

It's going to be a nice weekend, get out there and enjoy fall! Take a hike, go to a pumpkin patch, take a drive, sit outside with some apple cider! Whatever you decide to do, just soak it all in!!
