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.
When it comes to rocking boots with a dress, I love a flowy, less structured dress. Something that has some movement to it to offset the lines of a boot. This Rock & Roll Cowgirl Peasant Dress fits the bill perfectly. It is light and airy and short enough to show off the boots (in this case Corral Boots.) I like that the dress has a defined waist – three ways in fact. The cinched waist, belt and change in pattern all break up the lines and defining your curves.
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.
The may issue of People Style Watch had a great section on how to wear white jeans. They are such a versatile piece for Spring and Summer. You can pair them with heels, boots, flats and any number of tops…denim, leather, a tee or even a button down.
These Levi’s cropped leggings are great for summer. Although they are cropped, they are still long enough that you could slide boots over them and no one would know they aren’t full length.
Willie Nelson has a new album out today called Let’s Face the Music and Dance. Willie never lets us down with his new release year after year. This year he turns 80 and is in his 6th decade of recording. If you are a true Willie Nelson fan, you won’t be disappointed by this album. This is the same great Willie sound you are used to mixed with remakes of old songs written by Irving Berlin, Carl Perkins, Frank Loesser and Django Reinhart, and one of his own songs, “Is The Better Part Over.” In addition there are a couple of instrumental songs.
Listen to his own remake of Is the Better Part Over, South of the Border and Walking My Baby Back Home.
I honestly never get tired of listening to Willie Nelson…I have so many of his albums and there is nothing better than turning up a little Willie Nelson for the drive home at the end of a tired day.
