TOP SHELF

After road-tripping to South Bend, Indiana (Fri-Mon), I hopped on a plane to #Nashville to attend @RodneyAtkins (Team Curb) #CaughtUpInTheCountry album preview event! Check out @MorningHangover #InstaStory for highlights of the event which featured Rodney discussing the stories/inspirations behind some of the new songs that are featured on the album as well as performances of some of the new songs. A few of the songs that stood out to me include the first song on the album #BurnSomething which will sound awesome live! The ballad #FigureYouOut sung beautifully with his wife @RoseFalcon is absolutely mesmerizing. A deeply personal/revealing song called #MyLife showcases a vulnerability of Rodney you might not expect – when I think about award categories like #SongOfTheYear – this is the kind of song that comes to mind. #CaughtUpInTheCountry will be released on May 10th. I’m so glad I got to be a part of this event and special thanks to CURB for including me!

ON THE HOUSE

Thinking about #CountryMusic 100% self-inflicted “controversy” involving @LilNasX #OldTownRoad, I just want to point out that in the misguided effort to keep the song off the country charts, those behind it have only helped propel it to a different stratosphere of success. The excuse that “it does not embrace enough elements of today’s country music to chart in its current version” rings hollow when you consider songs that have a progressive/pop/R&B influence that were allowed to chart: #MissMeMore #CravingYou #MeantToBe #AllToMyself #BurninItDown #Fix #LosingSleep #TheFighter #Bartender #RoadLessTraveled almost any @SamHuntMusic #SummerFever #LightItUp etc. Instead of seizing an opportunity to celebrate diversity and acceptance in this format, people have needlessly projected a narrow-minded perception that I personally do not believe at all speaks for the bulk of where this format is right now. I am of the mindset that this genre is big enough for everyone who appreciates music, storytelling, talent, positivity and connection.
