Just wanted to keep y’all up to speed on some singles that have been released recently. First up, Tim McGraw’s Truck Yeah from his upcoming next album on Big Machine Records. Definitely a fun song, one that Tim pulls off perfectly. Next up, Sarah Darling’s Home to Me. If you loved Sarah’s Blackbird that we told you about recently on a Wear It post, then you’ll love this single. Definitely go have a listen to this one.And last, I’d like to fill you in on Darius Rucker’s True Believers. A love song that will make you love Darius Rucker even more. Go check this single out and you’ll see why Darius is a star.So what else are you guys listening to? I’m definitely full force listening to last week’s release by Radney Foster. Still in my rotation is Carrie Underwood’s Blown Away. My 3 year old is full force stuck on Taylor Swift’s We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. He and I both know the words by heart.
Lionel Richie comes out with a new album today called Tuskegee. It’s all his biggest hits made into duets with our favorite country singers. I’m going to give you thirteen reasons to buy this album: Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker, Little Big Town, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Jennifer Nettles, Tim McGraw, Shania Twain, Billy Currington, Kenny Rogers, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffett. You guys this album is AWESOME! And if you don’t like Lionel Richie songs, you are a damn liar! At least go listen to some snippets on iTunes.
You Are (w/Blake Shelton), Stuck On You (w/Darius Rucker, Sail On (w/Tim McGraw), and Hello (w/ Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles) are my favs for sure, right off the bat. And Hello even gave me goosebumps!
Also, on iTunes there is a sneak peek you can watch of the “making of” the album. Please go watch this, it shows a snippet of Blake Shelton being pure Blake Shelton. Gotta love it!
So what do y’all think? Is this a winner for Lionel Richie? What else are y’all listening to these days?
