Cute Kids Singing Country Songs — Miranda Lambert, Little Red Wagon

Apr 22, 2015 -- 4:45pm

 

(TASTEOFCOUNTRY.COM)

Too Cute!!!!!Lip syncing is the new singing, right? Totally — especially when it’s done with a lot of sass by an adorable 5-year-old (and her pops). This recognizable daddy-daughter duo did their own version of Miranda Lambert‘s “Little Red Wagon,” and it’s just the cutest!

Meet Audrey, a little girl with big energy and a great attitude. She’s the star of this dance-along video, with her big sunglasses, big hat, cowboy boots and a country sundress. Audrey taps her feet to the beat and mouths the song right to the camera. Her dance moves are on point, and her dad makes a great sidekick. He pretends to strum a miniature pink guitar behind her, and although Daddy takes front and center a few times, this Miranda Lambert cover is all about his sweet little girl. After all, the family that plays together, stays together!


 

Boring Office GoPro Parody Makes Menial Tasks Totally Epic

Apr 21, 2015 -- 5:48pm

 

(huffingtonpost.com)

Got a boring day job? Well, it turns out that's not a barrier to Internet fame.

YouTube user Braziliandanny strapped on a GoPro camera and made a short film documenting an average mundane day in the office. The video comically juxtaposes a montage of cranking out photocopies, mailing envelopes and drinking coffee with a bumping soundtrack by, appropriately enough, the band OVERWERK.

It's presented in the style of a commercial, although the creator's company doesn't appear to have been involved. But contrary to the typical action-packed GoPro montage, the film documents a solitary, menial and chock-full-of-manila-envelopes day at a boring office job.

The filmmaker explained on Reddit that he was able to shoot the film at his real estate firm's office because "a lot of people are out with clients," noting that he waited until everyone was out to shoot certain scenes. But what may have started out as a matter of necessity ended up making a subtle -- although perhaps unintentional -- point about the modern workplace.

There's an existential, absurd tone to the video, which features no dialogue and no people other than the filmmaker. While the rest of us may not necessarily walk the empty hallways of a deserted office, there's something to be said about the isolating effects of office life: The conventions we honor in order to get along with our co-workers may deny our individuality; the technology we use to accomplish our tasks can isolate us from others in the office, even as it brings us closer in the digital space.

While "Boring Office Job" might not be as exciting as an epic snowboarding montage, watching it is definitely more fun than actually sealing and stamping envelopes.

Now, get back to work.

Randy Travis Makes Appearance at 2015 ACM Awards

Apr 21, 2015 -- 5:38pm

Randy Travis looked on as Lee Brice paid him a tribute early on during the 2015 ACM Awards broadcast. The 55-year-old was in the house for the 50th annual awards show.

Travis was wearing a black jacket with white collar. He nodded and took in the thunderous applause when Brice pointed him out after singing a verse and chorus of his 1987 hit “Forever and Ever, Amen.”

On Friday Brice told Taste of Country Travis is “One of the guys I looked up to my whole life.” However, he wasn’t sure if the legend would actually be at the show — the special moment was a shock to everyone watching. There was no indication Travis would be present. It was almost two years ago that he suffered a life-threatening stroke. His recovery has been slow but steady, with fans, fellow singers and his fiancee providing regular updates.
After singing Travis’ song, Brice went on to introduce the Song of the Year nominees. The award went to Miranda Lambert for her hit song “Automatic.”

Woman Stabs Roommate Who Wouldn't Stop Listening To The Eagles: Cops

Apr 14, 2015 -- 2:55pm

 

(huffingtonpost.com)

She sure didn't have a peaceful easy feeling.

Vernett Bader, 54, is accused of stabbing her live-in ex-boyfriend Monday night because he wouldn't stop listening to The Eagles at their North Charleston, S.C. residence, according to ABC News 4.

Police say Bader was watching TV with the man's brother and told her 64-year-old ex to turn his music off. The ex responded by telling her to "shut up" and took her tolerance to the limit by continuing to play the classic rock tunes.

Apparently not one to take it easy, Bader then allegedly grabbed a bread knife and started swinging it at the man. He told police by the time he managed to get the knife away from her, the desperado was already gone, headed to the kitchen to get another, the Post and Courier reported. The victim locked himself in the bathroom to get away from her.

Police say Bader admitted to stabbing the man, but said it was out of self-defense because he was choking her.

Investigators, who noted there were no marks on her neck, did not believe her allegedly lyin' eyes.

She's at the Charleston County Jail now, and will likely make a court appearance one of these nights.

Eagles songs aren't the only music to push someone over the edge. In April, a Colorado woman allegedly started choking her boyfriend after he sang Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" 25 times.

Reba McEntire Previews New Song, ‘;She Got Drunk Last Night’ [Watch]

(tasteofcountry.com)

Reba McEntire is gearing up to release a new studio album, and as part of her Taste of Country takeover, she’s giving our readers an exclusive first look at one of the new songs titled “She Got Drunk Last Night.”

Written by Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally, the song tells the story of a woman who, feeling lonely and full of self-doubt, uses alcohol to get up the courage to call a man for some comfort: “So she got drunk last night / Drunk enough to call / That number in her phone that she would never call without the alcohol / But she needed an excuse / To let herself get used, and so that’s why / She got drunk last night.”

The country superstar calls the track “probably the most country song on the album. Unfortunately, it’s a relatable song by many people. It’s that you have to have that one more drink before you can make that call,” she adds with a laugh. “Unfortunately.”

In the video above, Reba and co-producer Tony Brown work on the song in the studio with several session musicians, putting down various instrumental tracks and vocals to create the seamless track that you’ll hear on McEntire’s new album, Love Somebody.

The album’s 12 tracks include contributions from some of Nashville’s hottest songwriters. In addition to Clark and McAnally, Sam Hunt, Ashley Gorley, Lori McKenna and Josh Osborne are among the writers with songs on the project. The result is a collection that addresses a lot of different styles.

“Well, it’s got an eclectic feel to it,” she says. “It’s got happy songs, love songs, drinking songs … It’s all over the map. ”

Love Somebody is set for release on Tuesday (April 14) via Nash Icon.
