I've never participated in a "link-up" before so welcome to my very first one via the blog We're Just Like You Only Prettier. I thought this was a fun one to do because I love finding out about new artists from others. Hopefully you'll see something you like that I'm listening to. I'd love to know what YOU are listening to.
First up is a cutie I discovered on You Tube via his acoustic cover of Colbie Calliat's "I Never Told You". It's amazing and I've listened to it more times that I can count. He does crazy good covers, so I highly recommend checking him out via his Facebook fan page or his YouTube channel (Did I mention he's easy on the eyes?). His latest cover is probably my favorite song on the radio right now, so I was more than excited when I saw he covered it. It's "Grenade" by Bruno Mars:
Zac Brown Band is my favorite country band. I get all tingly listening to "Colder Weather" ever since I saw them play in live on a CMT special a few months ago. I wanted to see them perform at the Houston Rodeo, but it's not going to work-out and I'm bummed. Booo! Maybe they'll come to Dallas soon, and someone will surprise me with tickets! Ha, I wish.
I was mesmerized when I first heard "If I Die Young" by the Band Perry for the first time and I just downloaded their debut CD to my itunes a few weeks ago. Their latest single is "You Lie" and I heart it almost as much as I heart "If I Die Young". "You Lie" is currently on my work-out playlist because it's a great 'girl done wrong by boy' song. We can all relate I'm sure.
I think I'll stop with my top 3 favorites. I hope you enjoyed my first ever link-up. Have a great Thursday and happy listening!
