Florida Georgia Line - Dirt

This is the newest song by Florida Georgia Line.  It is a big departure from what we are used to hearing from them, but it is still a song that comes from the heart and fits with the style and sound that is signature FLAGA Line.

Dirt is a more true life kind of song, and it gives us a look at the American life. What's more it gives us a look at the life that we all want and dream of!

I. for one, love listening to this song. It reminds me of some people that I knew that had been married for life and were always there for each other. It was the ideal that I dreamed of and wanted for myself! It is still the ideal that I want for my kids and wish for everyone else in the world to experience.

This is one of those songs that touches the heart and means something different to each person that hears it! It is what a country song is all about!

Brantley Gilbert - "My Baby's Guns n' Roses" - 5-2-14 - Evansville, IN

So the audio on this isn't the greatest, but this song is something else!

Yes, I'm a child of the 80's, I remember when Guns & Roses was popular and yes I had the albums and sang along with "Sweet Child of Mine" , "Paradise City", "Knocking on Heaven's Door" and "November Rain", so maybe that is why I love this song so much. Each of these songs are mentioned in the song, so it makes it that much more special and a tribute to the band.

It's not on the radio. I bought the CD and this was on there, and the first time I heard it I was hooked. That is another thing I like, I tend to like songs long before they ever make it to radio, if they even make it to radio. Some of my favorite songs are on albums, but never played on radio.

Brantley Gilbert solidifies his rocker/outlaw image with this song. Thing is we could use some good outlaws in country music, we have lost the older ones, so this isn't a bad thing.

Enjoy something off radio that is worth listening to!

Cassadee Pope - Wasting All These Tears

So this is another Team Blake winner from The Voice. No matter what you think about Blake Shelton, he has a talent for hearing the right voices that the public likes and that can win The Voice.  He also happens to be a great coah, in that he can get the best performances out of people.

This is one of those love gone wrong songs, and we have all had them. We think about people in our lives now or in the past that left us crying and we are ashamed that we cried over them when all the signs where there that they were never as into the relationship as we were. 

There are also the times when we just grew apart over time and the relationship ended and yet it seemed like wasted tears. We've all been there and can relate to the song. That is one of the things that makes a great song, it talks about something that everyone can relate to you.

I have spent so many days and nights crying over my current relationship that it is silly. No one should cry this much over something, and yet as toxic as I know it is, I have a hard time walking away. Sometimes we just become so used to things, even when they aren't good for us, that we can't move on to something better, more healthy.

Enjoy Cassadee Pope, and I think we will be seeing her around for some time to come now!
