Love and Theft have a new self-titled album out today. If you haven’t heard of Love and Theft, they are a duo made up of Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson. They have a single out right now called “Angel Eyes” and it’s currently in the Top 10 on country radio. In regards to their new album this is what they’ve said:
“This record represents the way we sound live,” says Stephen. Eric adds, “You get the warmth and the emotion of the players vibing together in the room. We feel like we have made the record we’ve always wanted to make and we can’t wait to find out what people think about it.”
These guys sound great together and have opened for a ton of big names like Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, and Jason Aldean. Definitely my favorites upon first listen are Amen, Town Drunk, If You Ever Get Lonely.
Go check them out!
Johnson’s take on why big hats are enjoying a resurgence: “In uncertain times, people have the tendency to try and look for things that do provide some stability and some certainty. Certainly a hat is not the only thing you need to do that, but it can be indicative of that type of character, somebody who feels very strongly about things. It’s not a small gesture to put a cowboy hat on and to wear it.” – A Big Hat is Where it’s at on TV, by Carol Memmott of USA Today
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Check out of selection of hats. Which one fits you best? Light? Dark? Felt? Straw?
Have y’all heard of The Lumineers? I actually hadn’t heard of them. I saw their video for Ho Hey and then proceeded to watch it several more times because I LOVE the song. It’s catchy yo! If you are of the Ryan Adams-ish type of Alt Country you should definitely take a listen. Before I let you check out the video, here’s a little background on the the band if you are unfamiliar…via CMT.com:
The Lumineers, a folk-rock trio out of Denver, Colorado, deliver an acoustic-based Americana sound that touches a lot of stylistic bases, from folk to gospel to heartland rock and the narrative end of country, all with interesting rhythmic twists and turns. The band had its beginnings in 2002 when Jeremiah Fraites lost his 19-year-old brother Josh to a drug overdose. Fraites and his brother’s best friend, Wesley Schultz, turned to music to deal with the sorrow of it, and were soon writing songs and gigging together in the New York area as a duo. After relocating to Denver, the pair met classically trained multi-instrumentalist Neyla Pekarek after placing a Craigslist ad for a cellist, and things clicked for the trio, who began playing open mikes at the Meadowlark, a basement club where local songwriters gathered, developing a fresh sound that defies tight classification, although front porch Americana might cover it
Without further ado, here’s the video…and make sure you check out Neyla’s dress, I could not love it more!
See what I mean?! Catchy, yes? Ok, back to the fashion aspect and Neyla’s dress–VERY CUTE! Here’s how I’d do it up Langston’s style.
What do you think? Are you a new fan of The Lumineers like I am? And how bout that dress? And I gotta say, those boots could not match that dress more perfectly if I do say so myself!
One of the hottest trends right now is colored jeans. Bright, cheerful and full of personality.
These Wrangler Women’s Ultra Low Rise Booty Up Skinny Jeans hit the nail on the head. They are perfect for the last weeks of summer, and fit into your Fall and Winter wardrobe with ease. They are 98% cotton/ 2% spandex and feature a slim fit, ultra low rise, and five pocket styling. Best of all. they are Wrangler’s “Booty Up” jean. They have built-in darts to lift and define your butt. For a bit of added detail they have clear rhinestone rivets and pocket embroidery. The turquoise is my favorite, but they are also available in yellow, blue and red.
I’d love to pair the turquoise with these Old Gringo Women’s Zarape Razz Cowboy Boots.
And these Corral Women’s Butterfly Inlay Cowboy Boots would look amazing with the yellow, or the red, or the turquoise! Take your pick!
Back in October Martina McBride released Eleven, her latest album and we told you about it! I gotta say, this has been my favorite album of hers in a long time, maybe ever. I haven’t taken this out of my rotation and am still loving Whatcha Gonna Do, which by the way she has recently said is one of her favorites to perform in concert.
Two weeks ago, Martina released a four new bonus tracks to Eleven: Ask The Boy, Closing Time, I Give It To You, and You’re In My House Now. They are perfect additions to Eleven and by far my favorite is Closing Time but I’m definitely a sucker for a bluesy country song. McBride herself co-wrote two of the bonus songs, Ask The Boy and You’re In My House Now.
So tell me, are you still listening to some Martina McBride Eleven? If so, what’s been your favorite track? Will you be buying these bonus tracks? Definitely give them a listen!
