As you probably know by now I’m a huge Miranda Lambert fan. One of my favs is Famous In A Small Town and I LOVE LOVE LOVE her black top/jeans outfit in this video. I know all the gals out there are gonna love it too. Refresh your memory:
It’s a hot outfit right? Now I can’t help with the guitar “accessory” she’s rocking but let me help you with the rest….
Easy outfit to put together and yet it looks FANTASTIC on everyone. I’m definitely lusting after those Old Gringos! Speaking of Old Gringos, don’t forget to enter the giveaway that ends Saturday!! You might be able to win a pair of these Old Gringos for yourself!

Two albums you should know about come out today. The first being The Hunger Games soundtrack which features two Taylor Swift songs and one Miranda Lambert/Pistol Annies song called Run Daddy Run and if I could have downloaded that one yesterday I would have. So what I’m saying is Run Daddy Run to your iTunes store and purchase that one. I’m definitely in love with the Taylor Swift songs as well: Sound & Sound and Eyes Open.
The second album comes from 3rd runner up American Idol in the spring of 2010, Casey James. Casey definitely has a Keith Urban-esque sound, country yet has some guitar rock stuff going on as well. He co-wrote 9 of the 11 songs and is definitely an up and coming new artist in the country music biz. My favs from this album right off the bat are Let’s Don’t Call It A Night, Undone, Tough Love, Miss Your Fire.
What will you be buying today? You know what I’ll be buying *hint* Run Daddy Run *hint*.
A while back I did a Wear It on Neal McCoy and y’all his album is OUT! It’s called XII! And if you love some good country music, this album is for you. This is McCoy’s first album in seven years and it’s co-produced by none other than Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. The song “Mouth” was written by Jamey Johnson, so you know with all this talent mixed together it’s going to be a good album to listen to because Neal McCoy was obviously not messing around with this one!
On first listen these are my favs: Mouth, A-Ok, That’s Just How She Gets. Honestly every song is pretty much a feel good song. He’s got a great voice and it’s a very country album, so if that’s what you are looking for then this is the album for you.
What are you listening to? Have I told y’all that in addition to all this new stuff I add to my playlists I also have to have Taylor Swift thrown in the mix because my 3 year old son knows all of her songs by heart? There’s just a little personal tidbit from me to you.
Have y’all heard Miranda Lambert is gonna guest star on a Law & Order: Special Victims Unit? YES! Set your TiVos!! It’ll be airing February 8 and in the episode, an aspiring actress is found unconscious in Central Park with drugs in her system and evidence of sexual trauma. Miranda is cast as another actress who is in danger of being assaulted by the producer of a reality TV show. Harry Connick Jr. and Michael McKean also guest star in the episode.
I’m pretty pumped about seeing her acting debut and how exciting that she’s making her debut on her favorite show ever!! What do y’all think? Will you be watching? Are you a fan of Law & Order: SVU? I will definitely be checking it out because I’m a MIRANDA LAMBERT fan!!
Joe Nichols has a new album out today entitled “It’s All Good“. This is his sixth studio album and his first since 2009. “It’s All Good” is produced by Mark Wright and Buddy Cannon. This album features a lot of great songwriters such as Dallas Davidson, David Lee Murphy and Rhett Akins. Joe is a pretty traditional artist compared to a lot of other country artists, if you aren’t familiar with his work. If you like George Strait, you’ll most likely like Joe Nichols.
The songs I would definitely take a listen to off this album are “I Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” (which has backing vocals by Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminski), Never Gonna Get Enough, How I Wanna Go. That last song I definitely want to take a listen to a few more times. So go check it out, let us know what you think!
What are you listening to right now? I know I’m still listening to last week’s new release by Miranda Lambert. The songs that I’m L.O.V.I.N.G. off Miranda’s album are Mama’s Broken Heart, Fine Tune and Over You.
Miranda Lambert comes out with her highly anticipated album, Four The Record, today. It’s been a couple of years since we had a solo album from Miranda but you would never guess it. Revolution was hugely successful and then her girl group, Pistol Annies came out with an album that I LOVE and am still listening to now. So Miranda hasn’t really been MIA, just no new album until now.
I’ve gone through and previewed each song and am living EVERYTHING, so I don’t believe you’ll be disappointed at all. My recommendations at first glance are Fastest Girl in Town, Over You, and Oklahoma Sky. It was really tough to narrow that down, so you should definitely get a listen for yourself. I definitely want to listen to Over You from start to finish as it was cowritten by Miranda and her husband Blake Shelton about the death of his brother. If I’m not mistaken, this is going to be Lambert’s next single after Baggage Claim.
Back in June we told you about the new song, Hell on Heels, from new girl trio Pistol Annies, available for download. Well you guys I am here today to tell you that the whole Pistol Annies album is out today!! YIPPEE!
Pistol Annies is the trio consisting of Miranda Lambert “Lonestar Annie”, Ashley Monroe “Hippie Annie” and Angeleena Presley “Holler Annie”. They all hail from the eastern side of their home states, Miranda from East Texas, Ashley from East Tennessee, and Angeleena from East Kentucky. Miranda and Ashley met because they were label mates on Sony Records. Ashley began writing with Angeleena a few years ago and introduced her to Miranda. Apparently a late night phone call instigated the forming of the trio and we all get to benefit!!
As you know Hell on Heels is their latest single but here are a few more songs you will definitely want to go check out now: “Bad Example”, “Housewife’s Prayer”, and “Boys from the South”.
