The Stars Are Here

Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, and Dave Chappelle.

Yes, yes and yes.

The brand new trailer for the remake of ‘A Star is Born,’ directed by lead actor Bradley Cooper, sparks a few thoughts:

  • When does Bradley Cooper’s country album come out?
  • Dave Chappelle can do anything.
  • The pieces are in place for a great film. Please don’t blow it.

While finely-crafted movie trailers can be deceiving, the initial review of the aforementioned first trailer is that the title should be adjusted to ‘The Stars Are Here.’

The show starts on October 5.


Happy Monday

The power of music earns another win, this time with some southern charm.

There are some song titles that just fit perfectly into a mood or day of the week. And it appears that Lady Antebellum has come up with such a song title. While the day of the week this song applies to may vary, “You Look Good” sounds like a great, uplifting way to kick-off a new workweek.

Here’s the brand new music video for “You Look Good” by Lady Antebellum.

This music video looks good as the opening act for ‘song of the summer.’

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

Country Time in the Summertime

Kenny Chesney and summertime go together like, well, Kenny Chesney’s 2005 single, “Summertime.”

The aforementioned country singer recently released a new song titled, “Setting the World on Fire.” The title, even with the soothing and comfortably rising tempo, was not the best turn of phrase for what’s happening in the world today. Maybe that’s why Kenny Chesney added a bright pink flavor to the mix.

Technically, he added singer P!nk for a nice country duet.

Kenny Chesney sure knows what to say for that special time in the summer.

Dave Grohl Walks into a Bar in Nashville…

What do you get when you put a rock ‘n roll, punk music and drumming legend on said drums for country music’s Zac Brown Band?

Just click the video below to find out. Be prepared to have your mind blown!

Yes, this really happened last night at the Country Music Awards…Once again, this went down at the Country Music Awards!

Electric guitars and loud drums have been injected into the country music genre for some time now. Last night, however, oddly enough, the awards show felt like a bit of a country music/rock show hybrid. There was the Florida Georgia Line, Brad Paisley and the Zac Brown Band (w/ Dave Grohl) that got the fans going, just for starters. Without knowing how or why Dave Grohl and Zac Brown decided to collaborate together for one song, one night on national television, their unique guitar-drums partnership generated a pulse likely never heard before in Nashville.

“Day for the Dead” is a full-bodied sound, satisfying for any music fan. It does not sound like a normal country music song. Surprisingly, viewers and attendees were treated to this new song by not just one, but by two great musical storytellers from opposite sides of the track. The performance was random, crazy and incredible.

It was great music played by great artists with their finely-tuned instruments.

There is a genuine yearning for authentic rock ‘n roll these days. Plus, country music seems to continue to get more popular by the day. ABC is playing its part in attracting viewers with its television hit, “Nashville” (with Hayden Panettiere), but fans keep emerging from all corners of everywhere…

Diddy + Nashville = What!?

The Zac Brown Band and guest drummer Dave Grohl gave the audience in the arena and at home a sound and visual that will resonate well beyond last night’s performance. As the video clip above shows, one can never go wrong with great musical storytelling if it’s told through the pulse of some genuine rock ‘n roll.

Grohl’s Foo Fighters band mate Chris Shiflett had to be smiling with a bit of shock last night with his cowboy hat on, even if it was just for a few minutes while hanging with his fellow Dead Peasants.

It truly was a ‘day for the music.’
