If you haven’t already checked out Tim McGraw’s new video Highway Don’t Care featuring Taylor Swift and Keith Urban you really should. And you should show it to all your teenage kids. Like this video should be a requirement. Why you ask? Because of the message: Don’t TEXT and DRIVE! So I feel like it’s important to pass this video along in anyway we can whether it’s through this hear blog or however we can. Check out the video now…
Tough subject, tough video to watch. Let’s lighten things up a bit and talk about Tim’s outfit that he’s wearing on his way into the hospital. Very professional look he’s got going there, yet casual. Business casual! So here’s how you can put that look together on your own with the help of Langston’s.
We’ve got a new album out today by THE KING, yes that would be Mr George Strait himself. George’s new album is called Love is Everything and it’s a winner! George has been at it long enough in this business to know what works and this album is definitely working. It’s like he keeps getting better and better! I am not really sure how to narrow down the must listens on this album because I’m gonna listen to this album over and over and over again I can already tell. But these are the ones that caught my attention at first listen: “I Got a Car”, “Blue Melodies”, “I Thought I Heard My Heart Sing”.
Trace Adkins also has a new album out today called Love Will… and he’s got some awesome guest stars if you will. Exile and Colbie Caillet are featured on this album. These are the must listens for this album: “Kiss You All Over”, “If The Sun Comes Up”, “Watch The World End”.
Go check these out for sure! So tell me, what else are yall listening to?
Pistol Annies came out with a new video this week and it’s an absolute HOOT. The video goes perfectly with the story of the song and all of the girls announced that their own families were starring in the video. Pay close attention to the girl’s “NICE” dresses as you watch…
Fun video right? I mean you can obviously tell whose parents are whose can’t you?? And Miranda said that was in fact her grandmother drinking from the flask. Go back and catch that part again, I’ll wait. See? Too funny!! Ok, now let’s get down to the business of their clothes. Miranda has a dress on that has ruffles at the neckline and we can hook you up with that same look, perfect for spring/summer! Here’s how we’d do it the Langston’s way!
Two BIG releases this week. First up, Pistol Annies have a new album out today called Annie Up. This is Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angeleena Presley second album together as the group Pistol Annies. You’ve probably heard the first single “Hush Hush” which is a must listen. Some other songs you definitely want to check out are “Don’t Talk About Him, Tina”, “Blues Your a Buzzkill”, and “Damn Thing”, though you should probably buy the whole album because all the songs are great if you are a Pistol Annies fan. They don’t disappoint.
The next big release out today is Lady Antebellum’s Golden. They already have a hit on their hands with “Downtown”. This is their fourth studio album and includes both upbeat fun songs as well as some ballads. Definite must listens are “Goodbye Town”, “It Ain’t Pretty”, and “All for Love”. This is a fantastic album, go check it out!
I hadn’t heard much about Danielle Peck until I stumbled across this new video she has out. It’s definitely an inspiration video and she’s definitely rockin’ some fantastic outfits in the video as well. Check it out….
Have you guys been watching The Voice this season? I have been off and on but not enough to write recaps….which I miss! I loved those!! Anyway….there is a duo from Oklahoma on Blake’s team. Blake lives here, our stores are here in Oklahoma and the Swon Brothers are Okies. I think that means they will win…don’t you?
We’ve got some new stuff out today! Kenny Chesney’s latest Life On A Rock is out today. If you are a fan of Kenny’s island life songs then this is sure to please. You’ll even get a duet with Willie Nelson thrown into the mix. Who can resist Willie! The must listens are: “When I See This Bar”, “Lindy”, “Happy On The Hey Now”.
Also out today is an album by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell called Love Has Come For You. It’s a folk album including Steve Martin’s banjo picking and Edie Brickell’s words and voice. As you can imagine with Edie Brickell’s vocals, it’s a very laid back sound but with the awesome Steve Martin banjo playing. Definitely check this one out.
An EP that you should be aware of is by Krystal Keith, daughter of none other than Toby Keith and folks she’s got a great voice! Looks like most people are buying “Daddy Dance With Me” on iTunes but I’m thinking I really like the song “Can’t Buy You Money”. I think it really showcases her voice.
I’d like to end this post with a nod to the great George Jones who left us too soon. I love so many of George Jones’ songs but the one that always gets me is “He Stopped Loving Her Today”. iTunes has a Remembering George Jones section up right now–go get lost in some of those songs.
I am going to admit that I hadn’t heard of Holly Williams before this but just listening to the first few seconds of this song and she’s got a new fan. I just love the traditional sound and her traditional country look. Check it out first and then we’ll discuss.
See what I mean? She’s definitely rocking the traditional look and sound and I’m LOVING it. She’s got your basic brown cowboy boots, bootcut jeans and a plaid shirt but it’s SEXY! And all of us can pull it off! These are what I pulled off the Langston’s site but the options are neverending! There is plaid galore on the Langston’s site, so go change it up!
There are some great new singles out lately and all three of these ladies have been or are on our television sets! First up! Wynonna has a single out called Something You Can’t Live Without. Wynonna has been all over the tv lately, first with Dancing with the Stars and second with an hour long documentary regarding her husband’s horrific motorcycle accident in which he lost one of his legs. The documentary is called Wynonna & Cactus: The Road Back. Check out all of the above. You can’t go wrong with Wynonna!
Next song I have to tell you about is Jana Kramer. She’s had a single out called Whiskey for a little bit now and she just recently released an acoustic version. This is a good song folks! It’s still in my listening rotation! And I just loved Jana Kramer when she was on One Tree Hill…remember that?!
The last song you should be aware of is by sassy Sasha Pieterse who currently stars on Pretty Little Liars. The song is called The Country is Bad Ass. So that’s one heck of a song title huh? It’s an upbeat fun song, have a listen.
