New Music Alert!

Starting the new year off right with some new music from Brothers Osborne! Many of us fans over in the UK were lucky enough to hear the new single, “Shoot Me Straight” before it’s official release when they performed it on tour with The Cadillac Three in November. It was obvious then it would be an instant hit and so exciting that new Brothers Osborne music is here so soon!

Friday

“Shoot Me Straight” is an impressive 7 minutes of everything we’ve hoped for and more. Don’t be put off by the length, every second is country gold.  The single is true to their rough around the edges, outlaw sound and reminiscent of their third single “Stay A Little Longer”, with more grit and a better guitar solo. Half of the single showcases TJ’s deep vocals and the other half is pure unapologetic guitar.

The new single is available to download and stream on Friday, January 5th.

Kacey Musgraves Weds Ruston Kelly

Yesterday, Kacey Musgraves became Mrs Kelly 10 months after Ruston Kelly proposed on Christmas Eve. The couple both took to social media yesterday confirming it was their big day with Kelly saying he’d ‘finally found the real thing’. Too sweet!!!

While we’re impatiently respectfully waiting for wedding dress pictures – who isn’t dying to see what Musgraves chose – there have been a few snaps shared. Songwriter and good friend of the happy couple, Shane McAnally posted adorable pictures of his sweet babies at the wedding with his son as a ring bearer and daughter, a ‘glitter girl’.

Chris Stapleton’s Big Announcement

Woke up to the best news this morning, during the first of his two sold out shows in Nashville this weekend, Stapleton shared the exciting news that From A Room: Volume 2 would be released on December 1st. For someone still playing Volume 1 on repeat, and choosing a new favourite every week this is HUGE news, I had no idea it would be so soon.

From A Room: Volume 2. December 1.

Let’s hope there will be a few pre-release tracks before December 1st, as I can barely wait.

 

Day of the Girl 

While I understand that the issue of gender equality, and the need for an ‘International Day of the Girl Child’ is far bigger than country music, we have to start somewhere. Women in country have been a minority for a while now in terms of recognition. You could probably think of plenty of amazing female country artists… Continue reading “Day of the Girl “

Why The C2C Line Up Is Nearly Perfection

The line up for C2C 2018 has been announced on stage at the Shepherds Bush Empire tonight by Whispering Bob Harris.

Headlining across the 3 days are Kacey Musgraves, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill and Little Big Town. Kelsey Ballerini, Luke Combs, Kip Moore, Midland and Margo Price are also set to perform on the main stage at some point Friday-Sunday. There have been very mixed reactions following this announcement, with many saying Kacey Musgraves isn’t headline material and that Little Big Town performed a few years ago and therefore shouldn’t appear again. Okay so here’s my take on it… Continue reading “Why The C2C Line Up Is Nearly Perfection”
