Last night as I was watching the Grammy Awards, I saw Chris Stapleton’s performance and instantly my favourite song by him started to play in my brain.
Unlike most people, after my heartbreak, I found it truly challenging to be able to listen to break up songs (unless they were by John Mayer). When I heard Tennessee Whiskey for the first time I didn’t become sad about my heart break, but I became hopeful about love for the future. Every work that Stapleton articulated didn’t represent my former love of heartbreak but it allowed me to envision a different kind of love that I could experience. That’s the beauty of music; you can always find a song to identify with in every case and for every feeling and that is the greatest gift that we have in song.
I haven’t always been a Jessie James Decker fan music wise, however, this song from her new album Southern Girl City Lights is an amazing one. Almost Over You is a country love song performed by Decker and fellow country musician, Randy Houser. Throughout dealing with my breakup, I have found myself listening to this song quite a bit. The combination of Decker and Houser’s voices make this song such a masterpiece, and paints colour with the lyrics. Whether or not your heart is broken, this is a song worth listening to.
Today is one of my more sad days – it is the last day of my relationship. I have been listening to different songs and reflecting upon how I feel and I keep on playing songs from Zac Brown Band. At this difficult time, they are all resonating with me, well, the ones that I like are. Your Majesty is one of the bands newer songs and I am really enjoying its composition. The lyrics are truly beautiful and catchy and make you feel emotions. Its easy to tie this song to a person or event or spiritual sense just by following the lyrics. Anyways, I hope that this song brings a sense of calm and peace to whatever your day brings. Remember, that there is beauty in all things, even the saddest things at the most heartbreaking times.
Blue Ain’t Your Colour is a country song by artist Keith Urban. Its a slow song about a man who is looking at a girl who has lost her soul due to a boy who failed to treat her right. Its a beautiful song overall. I really enjoy listening to this song while travelling on the bus. Hope you enjoy it too!
If there is one thing that 90% of people who know me know about me, it defiently has to be that I do not like country music that much. The whiny sound that occasionally accompanies the voice is never my cup of tea, however, lately (due to the fault of some of the people I like to call friends) I have started to indulge once in a while in a few select country tunes (generally sans whiny voice).
Dirt Road Anthem is a song by country musician James Aldean that is simply an ode to the basic country life that most country lovin’ people have come to enjoy. I really do love the course of the song; it feels so sentimental. I just feel like I’ve lost that connection to the country life I once/never knew and I need to somehow build a reconnection with it.
In honour of Sam Hunt performing in Toronto last night (and me living vicariously through my friends) I have decided to post another one of my favourite Sam Hunt songs, Leave the Night On. Leave the Night On is a fun and upbeat song about having a good old fun time. There is also the element of young love in there as well. There is really nothing much else to it. It is fun and catchy; you’re sure to stay dancing.
Take Your Time is a kind of love song by Sam Hunt. This song is about a guy who wants to introduce himself to a girl that he is instantly smitten with but nervous to approach. There is also discussion of a male falling into the traditional stereotypes of a guy approaching a girl at the bar. The lyrics of this song are basically going through the typical assumptions one makes when a guy approaches a girl at the bar, and attempting to shatter them by the lyrics promoting different, more positive, intentions.
While that is how I interpreted the song, the video is a little different. It shows guy who is smitten with a girl that he has seen but does not really know. He realizes that she is unhappy and for some reason he feels drawn to her.
I really liked this song and the meaning behind it. Another great one by Sam Hunt!
