New Little Big Town – One Of Those Days

OK… For the last who knows how long I have been that guy that while I support the more traditional country sound and try to promote artists like Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, and Chris Stapleton, I understand and like the expansion of the country genre. I think that artist should work with, collaborate, and fuse as many sounds and genres as they would like. I think that Little Big Town’s new album is probably going to be a really fun album with some great music on there. BUT PLEASE LBT…. DO NOT RELEASE THIS TO COUNTRY RADIO!!!! There is absolutely NOTHING remotely country about this record! That is NOT to say that it is a bad song by any means, it is just in NO WAY a country record….

YOU SHOULD BE LISTENING TO – STURGILL SIMPSON

So last year I fell in love with Chris Stapelton’s Traveler album but only talked about it a few times. Then When he won and I celebrated the great win I got yelled at for never talking about him before… so this year I’m putting it in writing!

I picked up Sturgill Simpson’s new album, “A Sailor’s Guide To Earth” when it came out, and I can’t stop listening to it!! I am far from a music critic, so sorry if my words seem off, but I’ll try to sum up the album with more than, “IT’S F#@&ING AWESOME”!!!
So let me say that the only “bad” part of this album is that it’s only 9 tracks long for just shy of 40 minutes of music. What you get with that 40 minutes is solid music with no filler songs to “just make the album longer.”
I’m not sure I can pick a favorite song, and really the album should be listened to as a whole to really apreciate it. However, I’ll highlight a few. The first track, “Welcome To Earth (Pollywog)” starts out with strings that remind me of a symphony with Sturgill’s distinct voice giving a soulful sound, then the funk comes in complete with horns with Simpson’s vocals giving even more power to the song. The best way I can describe “Brace For Impact” is a throwback to an old Stevie Ray Vaughn groove with a down south twang. “Keep It Between The Lines” is heavy on the horns with a song that songs like it could have come out of the height of Motown, yet still keeps its country all at the same time! The biggest surprise on th album to me was his cover of the classic Nirvana track, “In Bloom.” I have to respect Simpson for taking such an iconic song and making it his own!
Overall if you give this album a listen and your not a fan, I’m gonna guess that you think Luke Bryan is the best country singer out right now. Not a knock on Luke, he has some tracks that I love, but this album right here…. this is real, soulful, American, from the heart music.

Check out the tracks below and then find the rest of the album FAST!! By the way if you have Amazon Prime you can stream the album with your subscription for free, so I’m guessing you may find it on Spotify and Apple Music too!

maxresdefault

Here are who I think will win this year, this is not necessarily who I think should…

Entertainer of the Year

Jason Aldean
Garth Brooks
Luke Bryan
Miranda Lambert
Eric Church

Been wrong all year… but I’m sticking with Garth Brooks here! No one had a bigger year on tour…

Male Vocalist of the Year

Jason Aldean
Eric Church
Brett Eldredge
Chris Stapleton
Dierks Bentley

This is a hard one for me this go around. As much as I have been flying the Chris Stapleton flag all year, and would love to see him pick up another W, I think Brett Eldridge had a monster year on the charts and put out some great music.

Female Vocalist of the Year

Kelsea Ballerini
Jana Kramer
Miranda Lambert
Kacey Musgraves
Carrie Underwood

Love Kelsea and everything that she did this year to death but I think my wife-in-law Carrie Underwood grab another one here.

Vocal Duo of the Year

Brothers Osborne
Dan + Shay
Florida Georgia Line
Maddie + Tae
Joey + Rory

Joey + Rory would make a great story, The Bros had one of my favorite songs and albums of the year, but its too hard for me to vote against FGL to take this again.

Vocal Group of the Year

Eli Young Band
Little Big Town
Rascal Flatts
Old Dominion
Zac Brown Band

I think that LBT ride the Girl Crush success to grab this one.

Album of the Year

Eric Church, Mr. Misunderstood
Sam Hunt, Montevallo
Thomas Rhett, Tangled Up
Chris Young, I’m Comin’ Over
Chris Stapleton, Traveller

Said it when it came out last year, Traveller was the BEST album out PERIOD!

Single Record of the Year

“Burning House,” Cam
“Buy Me a Boat,” Chris Janson
“Die a Happy Man,” Thomas Rhett
“Girl Crush,” Little Big Town
“I’m Comin’ Over,” Chris Young
“Take Your Time,” Sam Hunt

I say it will come down to Girl Crush and Die a Happy Man.

Video of the Year

“Biscuits,” Kacey Musgraves
“Burning House,” Cam
“Girl Crush,” Little Big Town
“Mr. Misunderstood,” Eric Church
“Riser,” Dierks Bentley

None of these really stand out, but Cam actually caught on fire while filming Burning House so I’ll give it to her!

Song of the Year

“Burning House,” Cam
“Girl Crush,” Little Big Town
“Nobody to Blame,” Chris Stapleton
“Raise ‘Em Up,” Keith Urban feat. Eric Church
“She Don’t Love You,” Eric Paslay

Girl Crush, but glad Eric Paslay got a nomination here.

Vocal Event of the Year

“Hangover Tonight,” Gary Allan (Feat. Chris Stapleton)
“Home Alone Tonight,” Luke Bryan (Feat. Karen Fairchild)
“Raise ‘Em Up,” Keith Urban (Feat. Eric Church)
“Smokin’ and Drinkin’,” Miranda Lambert (Feat. Little Big Town)
“Wild Child,” Kenny Chesney (Feat. Grace Potter)

Home Alone Tonight was by far the most successful, so I’ll go with Luke and Karen.

FAT GUY CHRONICLES – The New Plan Finished!

So I’ve been swamped and haven’t been able to update my latest weight loss saga. So I have wrapped up my 24 day challenge with AdvoCare. I can’t say that I followed the system the way that they have it set up, but I was close-ish…

So how did I fair is the real question right? Well if you read when I started, I was at about 225 when I started and before my wedding I couldnt get below 220. When I stepped on the scale this morning… 209.8!!! I’ve got people at work telling me I look way thinner! So I would say that the 24 days have been a great success!! And by the way, I ran 1 time last month!

Gotta say a BIG thank you to my friend Desiree who turned me on to the system, you can find her link below, if your looking to drop some lbs check her out and see if its a good fit for you!

So what now? I really want/need to get going on a workout plan… gotta figure out how to fit it in with work and school… Hoping to get below 200 before Summer! I’ll keep you posted!

You can check out the program that I’m on by clicking here: www.advocare.com

This blog is just my weight loss journey and how and what I use to reach my goal. My blog will give you my results, good or bad, and my experiences with any programs, supplements, or training routines I use. ~ Jay
