Today’s release is by Craig Morgan called This Ole Boy. This is Craig Morgan’s first album since 2008′s That’s Why and his 6th studio album. On this new album he co-produced it and also co-wrote 7 of the 12 songs on this album. I think the title of this album perfectly portrays the mood of the album…this is definitely a good ole boy vibe. Definitely a fun album!
If you haven’t heard the title track that’s out now, This Ole Boy…you should definitely go check out the video. It’s hilarious for sure and stars none other than Hollywood actress Angie Harmon.
These are the tracks you MUST listen to, you know aside from the title track itself: The Whole World Needs A Kitchen, Love Loves A Long Night, I Didn’t Drink.
Will you be checking out Craig Morgan’s latest? I will for sure be adding it to my playlist. What else are y’all listening to these days?
Do you wear belt buckles?
This Nocona by M&F Western Oval “Cowboy Prayer” Buckle is perfect for special events, daily wear and obviously…church days. I love that it is understated and classic.
I also love this Nocona by M&F Western Oval “God Bless America” Buckle. I think the darker finish on it makes it easy to wear daily. A bit of character and interest that works with any shirt/jean/boot combo.
Want a bit more flash? This Montana Silversmiths Eagle Belt Buckle will get you ready for that special dinner out or any event in which a bit more bling is needed.
And no buckle round up would be complete without a steer. Crumrine Rectangle Belt Buckle with Steer Skull.
It is hard to say which item in this outfit is the standout…the shirt? It is made of yarn dyed fabric and features a striped pattern and snap closures on the front placket, cuffs, and flap chest pockets. It has a retro fit with embroidery designs. It also has as extended inseam construction which provides greater arm mobility. That might sound odd, but you all know how binding a shirt can be sometimes…this one lets you move freely and comfortably. It’s important!!
So is the shirt the start, or the boots? These Corral boots are an antique saddle color leather. They have a square toe, alligator belly underlay, and an antique saddle leather tube. I am in love with them.
But really, this outfit is tied together with the jeans. These Southern Thread jeans allow the other pieces to stand out, while still looking great in their own right.
What do you think….would you rock this look?

Have you heard of the upcoming movie “Act of Valor” that is coming out this weekend? Well if you haven’t, here’s how IMDB describes it:
An unprecedented blend of real-life heroism and original filmmaking, Act of Valor stars a group of active-duty Navy SEALs in a powerful story of contemporary global anti-terrorism. Inspired by true events, the film combines stunning combat sequences, up-to-the minute battlefield technology and heart-pumping emotion for the ultimate action adventure. Act of Valor takes audiences deep into the secretive world of the most elite, highly trained group of warriors in the modern world. When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S., a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt. As the valiant men of Bandito Platoon race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of American civilians, they must balance their commitment to country, team and their families back home. Each time they accomplish their mission, a new piece of intelligence reveals another shocking twist to the deadly terror plot, which stretches from Chechnya to the Philippines and from Ukraine to Somalia. The widening operation sends the SEALs across the globe as they track the terrorist ring to the U.S.-Mexico border, where they engage in an epic firefight with an outcome that has potentially unimaginable consequences for the future of America.

The soundtrack for the movie comes out today and it is made up of ALL country artists: Keith Urban, Sugarland, Lady Antebellum, Jake Owen, Trace Adkins, Lori McKenna, Montgomery Gentry, Josh Kelly, Hunter Hayes, and Wynonna Judd. Fabulous lineup wouldn’t you say?
From first listen, they all sound awesome! My top three picks are “For You” by Keith Urban, “The Best I Can” by Jake Owen, “Two Soldiers Coming Home” by Lori McKenna and “Whatever Brings You Back” by Wynonna Judd.
Ok, I am a bit behind her. Life took over and I missed The Voice last week. Again. So I am getting ready to watch tonight and was doing a bit of recap ready to get myself ready. And then I saw the name Jordis Unga. Wait…I know her. She was on Rockstar INXS and her version of Man Who Sold The World was amazing.
So I guess I know who my vote is going for. Well, I guess I need to watch her tonight and see how she has/has not changed, and how good the competition is…but I am very pleased to see her on the show. And…she is on Team Blake!!!
It looks like her look may have evolved from BoHo to rocker. I think these boots would suit her well. Pair them with jeggings, a black top and some big earrings for a more rock look…or wear them with a white peasant skirt for a more boho vibe.
I know I am a bit heavy on the women’s posts this week…some men’s stuff next week, I promise. But I couldn’t resist posting this cute combo.
I love the look of Turquoise with a lighter jean. It just feel fresh to me. Very boho and easy. Throw on a white tee or tank and you are ready for the day. If it’s still a bit chilly where you are…it is here in OKC…then throw on this grey cardi to keep warm. I love that this cardigan works for a dressed up look as well as many casual ones…and I can totally imagine pulling it on over my pjs if I need to head out to the stables or the barn for an early morning check in. I’m pretty sure this is one of those pieces you just keep grabbing for in any situation!
I don’t know about you but I am ready for spring. Just look at these spring colors!!
I love how this Wrangler Arched Feathers Tee has rhinestone accents on the feather design. So fun. And how about the barbed wire design on this pink tee? Tough and sweet all at once. The Wrangler Women’s Rock 47 Boatneck Burnout Tee Shirt would be a great basic to show off a bright belt or some fun earrings. And of course we need to represent the spring showers with a bit of grey, but there is nothing dreary about this grey tee. This Wrangler Women’s Rock 47 SS Brush Stroke Tee Shirt has it all…spring colors, grey tones and lots of sass.
