TWITL – week three – music makes the world go ’round

MUSIC Devin Dawson – DARK HORSE – I had pre-ordered this album and it finally dropped on Friday. It is so good. I find myself liking this song but then no, that song. Truthfully, I think I have some kind of love for all the songs. I am really digging “Symptoms,” “Secondhand Hurt,” “Placebo,” and…

TWITL – week forty-nine – seeing @TylerRichMusic again!

Okay, how funny is it that this is week forty-nine and we saw Tyler Rich Thursday night while I was wearing my 49er jacket? Also, we’re all San Francisco 49er fans. Coincidence? Sure. But interesting enough to note? Heck yes. Thursday night’s venue was the Bob Hope Theater in Stockton. Dustin Lynch was the headliner…

TWITL – week twenty-two – music & movies

MUSIC LAC 2017 – KAT Country’s Listeners Appreciation Concert was hot musical fun.

three days in a row of live country music

I oftentimes envy the ones I know who live in Nashville and get to listen to live country music on any given night. So when I got the chance to watch some country music in action here in my part of the world, I think it’s awesome! 🙂 THURSDAY – As mentioned in my last…

It’s Been a Year… #TylerRich @TylerRichMusic

It’s been a year since I first met Tyler Rich and saw him perform live at Ace of Spades in Sacramento. He was the first act of three, the headliner being the 2015 ACM New Artist of the Year Cole Swindell. Even though I was miffed that Sam Hunt didn’t win the ACM New Artist…

Prince died today

Prince died today. The news started to trickle in on twitter this morning. Was it true? Hold my breath until it’s “confirmed.” Yes, it’s true. The tears want to fall but I’m at work and my day must continue. So write a few words, send it to the universe, and plug on with the day….

concert: #SoundsOfSummer

the Shoreline Amphitheatre What, a second country music concert in one year?! (Not including the Tyler Rich shows I’ve attended since April, those deserve their own posts.) We got tickets to this Dierks Bentley headliner a week before the concert for a decent price. I took off early from work on Friday afternoon then off…
