I grew up listening to Don Williams. Tulsa Time? It Must Be Love? Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good? Come on, that’s the good stuff I tell you! So when I heard that he had a new song out AND a video I had to hear/watch it. Bonus points: Keith Urban plays and sings along With Don!
I think Don’s look hasn’t changed much since the good old days and yet it is so not out of style! Anyone can totally pull off this look. Here’s how you can do it the Langston’s way!
Gary Allan has a new release out today called Set You Free. It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Gary Allan, or at least it feels that way. There has definitely been some ups and downs in his personal life and so you know this album is going to showcase some of those feelings. Allan has a rough sexy voice and he never fails to disappoint us in his songs. This is a great album and he co-wrote and produced many of the songs on the album.
There are tons of different sounds on this album but it really seems to all work together. Here are some of my favorites at first listen: Every Storm Runs Out of Rain, Sand in my Soul, Drop, Good As New. If you listen to those you will be a happy camper for sure.
Jana Kramer has a new video out right now called Whiskey. I love the song and remember it from One Tree Hill, which she starred in for several seasons. I love her voice and am LOVING her outfit in this video. Check it out:
I love the dark mixed with the cream colored shawl/wrap she’s got going on. You can totally recreate this outfit with a charcoal grey top, black jeans, black boots and then a cream wrap. To tie it all together throw on a silver or crystal bracelet. Here’s how we did it the Langston’s way…
Justin Moore has a video out right now called Til My Last Day. He’s got a great look going on in the video. Let’s check it out shall we?
What do you think of his outfit? I’m loving how put together he looks and how any of you men can pull this look off for sure. The key is layering. You start with jeans and a tee or henley and then layer over a jacket. I love that his look is overall dark in color but yet he wears a straw hat. It’s unexpected and I love that! So this is how I would pull it off in the old Langston’s way…
Are y’all ready to get back to non-holiday music? I am! I’ve got a few good singles you should check out for sure.
Remember RaeLynn from The Voice? She was on Blake’s team..of course you remember! Well she’s got a single out and you might have caught it recently on The Voice where she performed it live. It’s called Boyfriend and its super sassy. Definitely go check it out.
Katie Armiger has a new single out called Playin’ with Fire. It’s a fast paced song that really gets you right from the start. She’s got a great voice.
Leann Rimes has another single out from her upcoming album. This song is called Borrowed and it seems to follow in line with the last single she released in that it’s coming from a very personal place. I’m definitely hoping we hear more about Leann’s voice in the coming months than hearing about her in the tabloids.
Tim McGraw has a new video out, One Of Those Nights. Personally I can’t think of a better way to spend the next 4 minutes than by staring at Tim McGraw. What do you say ladies? Let’s check it out!
Sigh. Looking good huh? Ok, so now let’s talk fashion, shall we? While I do love Tim’s consistent black cowboy hat, henley style shirt and jeans or leather pants look, what caught my eye in this video was where he was wearing a scarf and puffy vest. I personally think that is a great look on him. This is how I’d recreate it the Langston’s way…
I have some updated Holiday music for you. This year is the 25th anniversary of “A Very Special Christmas”, a project that benefits the Special Olympics. The album this year includes many of your favorites such as Rascal Flatts singing “Mary, Did You Know”, Vince Gill singing “Breath of Heaven”, Martina McBride singing “Please Come Home for Christmas”, and Jewel singing “Angels We Have Heard on High” among others. Those are some great ones that aren’t on your typical Christmas album, so go check them out for sure.
Another release that came out this week was Tim McGraw’s “Mary and Joseph”. It’s definitely a must listen to. I love how Tim McGraw does really great “not your typical” Christmas songs. Last year he came out with “Christmas All Over the World”, which has definitely been one of my favorites to listen to over and over.
And I just don’t think it’d be a country Christmas without some Willie Nelson. Willie came out with a new Christmas album this year called “The Classic Christmas Album” and it’s got all of your favs from Rudolph to Jingle Bells and of course includes his famous “Pretty Paper”.
I thought I’d go the festive route this week with our Wear It series. This week we will be talking about SaraBeth’s outfit in her video Under the Mistletoe. This is definitely a fun song and a fun outfit. Check it out.
See what I mean? That’s a rocking Christmas song right? And I’m loving her outfit. So here’s how I’d make that happen the Langston’s way…
I LOVE those boots, the stitching and the color and combine them with those jeggings! That’s a hot outfit. You can do a vest or jacket with this depending on how warm it is where you live. This is the perfect outfit for a casual Christmas party. Would you Wear It?
Who do you want to see featured on Wear It? Let us know!!
I thought I’d throw out some duets that you might not know about that involved some of your favorite country artists. The reason you may not know about these are because they are duets with artists from different genres.
First up duets you may or not know about with some country favs comes off the Elvis Presley Christmas Duets album that came out in 2008. You will find many familiar names on this album for example Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride, Little Big Town, Wynonna Judd and many more.
The next one I have for you is Justin Bieber and The Band Perry! They did a duet on Bieber’s Christmas album out last year. The duet is called “Home This Christmas”. Though an unlikely pair their voices really do blend well, you should definitely have a listen.
And last, the Jessica Simpson song “Merry Christmas, Baby” featuring Willie Nelson is a keeper for sure. You absolutely must add that to your holiday playlist.
So who else are you listening to this holiday season?
Have you heard The Band Perry’s latest single Better Dig Two? It has a very Miranda Lambert Gunpowder & Lead or Kerosene feel to it. I love it! And honestly I love Kimberly Perry’s multiple outfits SO MUCH! Check it out first.
Aren’t her outfits fabulous! Normally I would build a whole outfit for you but today I’m going to throw in several items that just have the feel of the overall video. Stripes and sequins! Here we go!
