With the release of Keith Urban's new cd today I just have to say how happy I am for him. Since Nicole came into his life it has really changed him as a person and that speaks for the amazing power of love. I was reading through the booklet that came with the cd and here is what he says to Nicole: "Nicole Mary- I continue to be brought to my knees by this love of ours... I am in awe of how this blessed family we are creating stretches and fearlessly opens my vulnerable heart...and I just want to... Continue reading
I was very excited to review these cd's because I personally love to know how a song was transformed from the songwriter's vision to the versions we hear on the radio today. People don't realize that the artists themselves often do not write their own songs. Yes they sing them and bring them to life (and they may very well relate to the song) but for me I respect those artists who write and sing their own songs just a little bit more. I was lucky enough to see one of these songwriters (Tony Arata who penned The Dance, sang... Continue reading
From official press release: American schools have become increasingly focused on hiring “highly qualified teachers” – educators who have substantial knowledge and training in the subjects they teach. When inner-city students in St. Louis get a lesson in songwriting this week, they’ll be learning from one of the most highly qualified teachers imaginable: Grammy-nominated songwriter Odie Blackmon. The Nashville-based Blackmon will spend three days working with students from Garfield Elementary School (6506 Wright Way, St. Louis, MO 63121). On Monday, Nov. 8 and Tuesday, Nov. 9, Blackmon will join students in the classroom from 3 to 5 p.m. where they... Continue reading
I have to admit, I've been really missing Shania Twain lately. I saw her in concert back in 2003, a few years before she disappeared from the country music scene. I've been re-discovering her music lately and really wishing she would put some new music out. It seems that there have been plans for a new album in the works, but for some reason or another things keep getting pushed back. However, Shania (or rather Eilleen Regina Edwards - her birth name, who knew?) is set to release her autobiography in the spring of 2011. She says: "There have been... Continue reading
So I randomly stumbled upon Kenny Chesney's newly re-designed website tonight. I'm surprised that with the recent announcement of his 2011 stadium tour dates this was not mentioned anywhere. Maybe they figured people would go to the site to get more information and just find it like I did? I'm personally a fan of the new site, it's nice to see a fresh design. Take a look and let me know what you think! Continue reading
I'm not going to lie, hamburger helper was my ramen noodles through college. There were many a late night I would throw a box on for dinner due to my lack of fine cooking skills. Who am I kidding? I still find myself doing that quite often in my post-college days. It's easy, quick and tasty. Why am I telling you about hamburger helper? Well, Tim McGraw has partnered with Feeding America for the Show Your Helping Hand hunger relief campaign. All you have to do is go to the website and enter the code from the specially marked Hamburger... Continue reading
