Country Favorites: Summer 2017


Even though it’s technically still spring, summer music is undoubtedly here.

Some of my favorites:

  • Body Like A Back Road (Sam Hunt) Talk about one of those instant feel-good jams. Goin 15 in a 30, I ain’t in no hurry, Imma take it slow just as fast as I can.
  • Craving You (Thomas Rhett & Maren Morris) Two of the top most popular country artists collaborating. What a beautiful thing!
  • Happy People (Little Big Town) This song has the best vibe and super solid lyrics too. Personal favorite line…Happy people don’t fail; happy people just learn.
  • The Fighter (Keith Urban & Carrie Underwood) Am I the only one who has a significant urge to kick-box when I hear this song? I’m still thinking about a full out routine to go with the song…
  • For Her (Chris Lane) Maybe the most adorable song ever-check it out.
  • Greatest Love Story (LANCO) This song is the first LANCO song I ever did hear and let me tell you they just might become a favorite of mine. If you have not yet heard this song, check. it. out.
  • No Such Thing As A Broken Heart (Old Dominion) Another extremely catchy song with excellent lyrics.
  • Round Here Buzz (Eric Church) This is a JAM! I have heard really great things about Eric’s Holding My Own tour and I just just imagine him singing this one live.
  • You Broke Up With Me (Walker Hayes) One of my gym buddies caught me jammmmmmming to this tune last week in my car…I had no idea he was driving in the lane next to me… The tune/lyric combination is on point. Do yourself a favor and listen to this one.

Joel Piper, Plain and Tall


After some quick research and getting over my personal self-denial, I faced the facts: I’ve never posted about Joel Piper before! But, let’s get real here-what better day than September 7, 2013 for the world to be acquainted with Mr. Piper.

I first heard “The Only One” after downloading it for free via Starbucks; then I heard his other songs and fell farther in love with his unique musical vibe.

My roommates and I loved this song last year because it begins with the lyrics, “I’ve had a really bad day” -so whenever we had a bad day, we’d come back to our room and jam out to “Gimme That Love Song.” Interestingly enough, the tables turned and we all began to appreciate bad days/moments because it got us pumped out for the jam sesh that was then in store.
