Listen to This: “I Want Crazy”

You know how I told you to be prepared for a few more country music posts this week? Well, here we go. I know I can’t be the only one out here who was watching the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night? So, then I assume I also wasn’t the only one who saw Hunter Hayes debut his new single “I Want Crazy.” Oh my gosh. That boy. Every single song. A friend and I were texting about him, and he was like well, “what’s your favorite?” How do you have a favorite HH song?! When “Storm Warning” came out, I couldn’t get enough. I remember I was driving back to Tallahassee from Inverness just cruising along that long¬† open stretch of 19, and I looked down to turn it up and was like WHO IS THIS?! I grabbed my phone so fast to Shazaam it!

“She rolled in from the west in a summer sun dress
Hotter than the heat in July
With her wind blown hair it just wasn’t fair
The way she was blowin’ my mind”

Yeah, then there was “Wanted”

Anyone can tell you you’re pretty, yeah
And you get that all the time, I know you do
But your beauty’s deeper than the make-up

Then, “Somebody’s Heartbreak”:

“I guess that all I’m tryin’ to tell ya
Is a minute with you is better than two without”

I mean, for twenty-one? That boy sure is a sweet talker. He just gets me with every song! And have you seen him? He’s adorable. And that voice – so steady and strong. He’s a great artist, if you ask me. So I for one loved hearing his new song “I Want Crazy.”

I mean, SO GOOD. My favorite lines from this one are

I want can’t sleep, can’t breathe without your love
Front porch and one more kiss, it doesn’t make sense to anybody else

and

The world makes all kinds of rules for love
I say you gotta let it do what it does

He’s worked with Victoria Justice. He’s opened for TSwift, Rascal Flatts, and even The Flaming Lips. I hope he’s got years and years of music making ahead because every single he puts out, I find myself listening to on repeat. If you don’t know Hunter Hayes yet, I say check him out because you don’t wanna miss out! Who knows why I haven’t spotlighted any of his songs yet?!

Listen to This: “Mean”

Because it’s Wednesday, and it’s been a rough week and because this song just keeps running through my head today, I give you TSwift’s “Mean”¬†from her album Speak Now. I’m pretty sure it’s probably almost impossible to have missed this one. It’s slammed the radio airwaves, she’s won many awards, and sang it live on the several occasions. It’s a good one to think about when you’re trying to maintain composure, but you really just want to scream or cry. Sometimes, people are just really down right mean. Your boss. Customers. Strangers. Friends. We all have our bad days, but don’t take it out on those around you. I’m not really a touchy-feely person, but days like today just make me want to give people a hug.

“All you are is mean, and a liar, and pathetic, and alone in life, and mean and mean and mean…”
