Music I Love

I know it's late (10p) but I told myself I couldn't post a blog today until I had my assignments for History of Rock and Roll done.  I was still a bit naughty and read some blogs when I should have been reading but I just couldn't help myself!

While reading other blogs I noticed people are doing this 30 Days of something and Day 11 was to put your iPod on shuffle and list the first 10 songs that come up.  I decided to expand it to the first 15.  *Warning! May contain large amounts of country* ;)

Here you go...

1. "Just Fine" ~ Bomshel

2. "When You Got A Good Thing" ~ Lady Antebellum

3. "Something 'Bout a Woman" ~ Lady Antebellum

4.  "You" ~ Bomshel

5. "Church Pew or Bar Stool" ~ Jason Aldean**

6.  "Hey Stephen" ~ Taylor Swift

7.  "Satellite Heart" ~ Anya Marina

8. "One Day You Will" ~ Lady Antebellum

9. "Barn Burner" ~ Jason Michael Carroll

10. "Let's Make Love" ~ Faith Hill

11.  "The Razors Edge" ~ AC/DC

12. "Ignorance" ~ Paramore

13. "Thirsty" ~ Hank Williams Jr.

14. "Whiskey Girl" ~ Toby Keith

15.  "Brick By Boring Brick" ~ Paramore

Wow my iPod was really in the mood for country and Lady Antebellum tonight!  Normally I get a lot of AC/DC when I use the shuffle feature because I have all of their CDs.  But anyways, obviously you can tell I like country music :)

**Jason Aldean is one of my absolute favorite artists right now.  I was really happy when he popped up on my iPod.  I can't help but smile when I hear his music.  I love his voice and his songs...and he's definitely not bad-looking either ;)

Picking an image to share with you was hard, I wanted to post them all.  If you're even slightly interested in country music I highly suggest that you listen to some Jason Aldean.  I love all of his albums!  Let me know if you want some recommendations for songs.

My love of country music is part of my motivation to shed the extra, unnecessary pounds.  June 23rd - 26th I will be in Cadott, WI at Country Fest 2011.  In four days I will see the following artists: Brett Eldredge, Joey & Rory, Lonestar, Gretchen Wilson, Trace Adkins, Steel Magnolia, Justin Moore, Craig Morgan, Gary Allan, Miranda Lambert, Josh Thompson, Collin Raye, Chris Young, Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, Bucky Covington, Jerrod Niemann, Clay Walker, Josh Turner, and Lady Antebellum.  Yes, all of those artists in just four days!  How awesome is that?!  Because it's in summer I want to look good in a pair of shorts and a tank top so I am going to work my butt off to shed some pounds before then.  Also, another nifty little fact, I'll be 21 for Country Fest as my birthday is the weekend before on the 18th which I also want to look good for.

I'm thinking maybe I'll share some music and possibly some facts about the artists that will be at Country Fest in my blog?  What do you think??  I don't want to bore anyone with stuff they don't care about.

I'm so incredibly excited for the month of June!!  I'm also incredibly excited to get home from class and my work out tomorrow.  I will be stopping at the store to pick up some missing ingredients for a Chocolate Peanut Butter Bunt Cake which I will then proceed to make once I am home.  I just about drooled all over my keyboard at work today when I read Holly's blog where she shared the recipe.  If you want to drool over the cake and see the recipe you can check it out here.

Well I'm off to bed now.  I have my second exam in my marketing class tomorrow so I need to get up *hopefully* early to do some last-minute studying.  Tomorrow I will definitely be posting a blog about how that cake turns out :)

One day you will is one of my alltime favorite songs. For real!

I post a blog only when I'm done with all my work too. Don't worry though, half the people on the west coast that read-it's still early for them! I always forget people are on different time zones and such. :)

Lady Antebellum is awesome!! I've seen them in concert twice already and am going to see them a third time this summer. So excited!

OMG I completely forgot about the west coast, it was only 8p for them when I posted this haha!

I go through phases where I LOVE country music too. It's like every couple of months I really get into it..but then it fades.
I will have to listen to Jason Aldean though- I don't know of his songs off the top of my head.
& I HAVE to know what you thought of the cake :D

Amy @ countrystrong21 said...

The cake is amazing!!! I learned my lesson though...must take bunt cake pan OFF of the cake, not leave it sit on stop of the cake for hours...hehe my cake came out flat. Lesson learned for the next time I make it lol. I couldn't find the Reese PB cups in the small bag like that...I saw it the other weekend at Wal-Mart but couldn't find it yesterday at Pick-n-Save so I ended up just buying a bag of miniatures that were individually wrapped and unwrapping some (guessing at how many to put in) but it still turned out pretty good.

Awww so sad that your love of country music fades after a couple of months lol. For me it's a 24/7 thing :)

Here's a few Jason Aldean songs I highly recommend (they're some of my favorites):
"The Best of Me" - Wide Open
"Don't You Wanna Stay (w/Kelly Clarkson)" - My Kinda Party
"Wide Open" - Wide Open
"Tattoos on this Town" - My Kinda Party
*Song title followed by album name

Let me know if you like them! I hope you do!
