~ New Music Monday ~ August 14th, 2017 ~ NEW NEW NEW ~

Danielle Bradbery - "Human Diary"
fr "I Don't Believe We've Met"

Starting this weeks New Music Monday off with a new tune from Danielle Bradbery. A winner of the voice, a past opening act for Thomas Rhett, and cover songs queen Bradbery is finally ready to release her first full length album. She has been sharing bits and pieces of the journey on her socials and I must admit it is all very interesting and makes so much sense. I know that post "Heart of Dixie", I wondered where she went and why she wasn't cranking out single after single like her reality show cohorts. Well, she answers that lingering question and many others on "I Don't Believe We've Met", which releases December 1st. The first two tracks are "Sway" and "Human Diary", the second being today's share. It is SSOOOOOOO painful!!!! But in all the right ways, if that makes sense to ya. Discusses the loss of love beyond the comfort of a snuggle buddy, etc. Give it a listen, a download and mark your calendars for the release of "I Don't Believe We've Met", which is also avail for pre-order. Check Danielle's socials for more details.

This weekend Kip Moore released the second video for his upcoming album, "SLOWHEART". "The Bull", is the first and only song that Moore has recorded that he didn't have a hand in writing. Luke Dick one of Moore's co-writers for the upcoming album shared the tune on the off chance he would consider it. Turned out, he did and found it worthy of a spot on the album. I must say, I am in love with this tune, personally. Who doesn't know what it is to be knocked down and have to get back up. While, if having been asked before hand if I would have chosen my hard times I obviously wouldn't have. With that said, I wouldn't change them. I know they have made me who I am and I think that is a bit of the vibe with "The Bull". Moore was quoted as saying he likes how it kind of takes you through the journey of losing yourself and after some falls, some encouragement, finding yourself again and being better for it. One of my fave lines may be " It'll sure feel good to laugh when I look back and flip the bull the bird", I mean..... 100 Xs YES!!!!!! "SLOWHEART" releases September 8th and is currently available for pre-order both on Kip's web page and iTunes. When pre-ordering fr iTunes you will get two tracks immediately, "More Girls Like You" and "The Bull", plus a third that will be shared this Friday. If you pre-order from Kips site there are other bonus', check there for more details. Along with the release of "The Bull", Moore announced his upcoming Fall tour the "Plead the Fifth Tour" with opening acts Drake White and Jordan Davis. I legit can NOT wait for this album. I know I might say that often, but this is for realsies you guys!!! I have a lot to say when it comes to the music that Moore and the Slowhearts have been making of the years, but I think it deserves a post all it's own so, for now, this is will have to do. Sometimes music hits your ears, mind and heart exactly when you need it most and that is what happened for me when coming across the "Up All Night" record. Give "The Bull" a watch, listen and download ASAP!! It is also avail on Spotify!!

Kip Moore - "The Bull"

Lindsay Ell - "Waiting on You"
fr "The Project"
Lindsay Ell, member of the Raging Idiots, GF to radio personality Bobby Bones, Canadian gone country, and solo artist waiting in the wings to hit big. She has been touring with Brad Paisley this Summer, finishing her album "The Project", which was produced by Kristian Bush (Sugarland), promoting, and basically doing the dang thing. I'd swear, but I reserve swears for when I am irate and Lindsay Ell does not make me irate. If anything she challenges me. Girl is on the grind. There are few artists, I feel, that share the complete look of what it is like being on the road 3 1/2 weeks out of a month with a day off to empty your suitcase only to refill it, fit in caring for your health, getting work done, making appearances, etc., but Ell is very open with her fans. Several weeks ago her doctors put her on strict vocal rest after loosing her voice during a performance. That did not slow her interactions with fans! She wrote them messages and used avenues like Insta Story to keep everyone up to date on how she was doing, what she was doing, and when they could expect to hear her solid, somewhat lower toned voice, again. I like Lindsay. I think she is representing the grind and doing it in a way that makes you hopeful that she is gonna catch the brass ring. "The Project", Ell's first full album is available now and her latest single/video, "Waiting on You" is out and about for requesting, voting on, etc. Give her a watch, a listen and a download!!!

Lastly this #NMM is The Cadillac Three and "Demolition Man", from their upcoming album, "Legacy". "Legacy" drops August 25th....NEXT WEEK!!!! And the trio has shared another creative video for the record. "Demolition Man" takes me back to High School and playing Super Nintendo when I couldn't sleep at night, LOL!! I think it is a creative second video for this album and it only makes me more excited about what else is to come once "Legacy" is officially released. TC3 have been on tour this Summer as well as hitting some festivals. "Legacy" is available for pre-order and I am sure that a Fall tour is going to be announced if it hasn't already. Personally, I wish they were opening for Kip again, along with Drake White. I think that would just be a stellar line up. The party would never stop!!!!

Have a beautiful week music lovers!! And don't forget to request these tunes with your local radio and to vote for them on video countdown pages like GACTV and CMT!!!

A Little More #Glam Decor for Your #GlamBag Fix. Along w the Make-Up Bags I Shared a Few Weeks Ago, I Have Also Received, Collected, Bought Other Glam Items That I Planned to Use as Decor. While I'm not Sure Yet Where I'll Put These I Really Like How They Turned Out.

Top Left are Glam Tweezers (not plain ol' silver, but bedazzled, etc) ~ Top Right is a Necklace a Friend from High Scho...ol Brought Back for Me Fr a Mission Trip to Brazil. ~ Bottom Left is a Get Well Card My HS Bff Sent. ~ Bottom Right is a Mirror Compact One of My Dear Virginia Friends Gave Me for Christmas Several Years Back.

I LOVE That These Things Don't Have to Stay Hidden Away in a Drawer or Box & Can Be Used Instead Not Just as Pretty Things to Look at, but Sweet Reminders of the Beautiful Friends the Lord Has Sent Me Throughout My Journey. I Have a Few Other Ideas for Other #GlamDecor, but You'll Just Have to Stay Tuned for Those!

Frames are from Dollar Tree. Glitter background is scrapbook paper I purchased from Target clearance last year for thirty eight cents, lol!!! I knew it wouldn't be a waste.

~ Insta Blog ~ Change Me ~

Image may contain: text

My Current Prayer.

Lord, If I Cannot Have the Strength, Resources, Options to Change (fill in the blank), Then Father, Change Me. Change How I See Things. Change How I "Feel" About Things. Allow Me the Strength & Wisdom to Change How I React to Certain Things. Change My Mind, Change My Heart & I Believe These Changes Will Inevitably Change My Actions & Reactions.

Change, it Happens With or With Out You. Whether You're Paying Attention or Not. Whether You Acknowledge it or Not. Father, Change......Me. 

Praise Him for All He Has Done. Praise Him for All He Has Yet to Do. ~
