As Good As Advertised: Vaquero by Aaron Watson

As Good As Advertised: Vaquero by Aaron Watson

Let’s let the cat out of the bag right now, it’s tired of being stuck in this ole sack: Aaron Watson blew me away with this album. Last month we loaded up and made our way to the San Antonio Livestock Show and Rodeo for Xtreme Bulls and Aaron Watson’s performance. After a solid two hours of rodeo action, the tractors entered the arena preparing the dirt for the stage and additional seating to be set up. I couldn’t imagine the show being able to top Xtreme Bulls. There was…

On Repeat

On Repeat

Disclaimer: I wasn’t planning on posting today, but Conway Twitty made me. Do you ever find yourself listening to the radio, or Pandora, or Spotify and one song in particular keeps making its way to the top of the queue? Does it ever seem like you hear one song daily for a week straight? This has been happening to me since Monday, and I both love it and hating it at the same time. As I have mentioned multiple times, I rarely listen to the radio, due to my fixation…

@ the Moment: Start 2016

@ the Moment: Start 2016

January! Where have you gone? Before we know it, we’ll be doing the Christmas shopping and working on our 2017 resolutions! Okay, a bit of sarcasm and exaggeration there, but these days sure are flying by. This month has been busy, but the good kind of busy for the most part. Plenty of days and nights spent with family, several days of working cows and music! I’m going to share my latest and greatest playlist that has been streaming through my ear buds most of this month. It’s been far…

Things Tuesday: 06/30/2015

Oh hey, June. Wait. Goodbye? How in the world do these months go by so fast. I’d understand it if I was jet-setting around the world every weekend, but unfortunately that is not the case. I guess splitting my time between work and play is catching up to me. Then again, maybe this is just a side-effect of growing up that I have to just learn to deal with. On to my little list of randomness on this Tuesday. You may have noticed that this is not a Twelve Things…

@ the Moment

@ the Moment

It’s been almost two months since I updated my @ the Moment playlist, so I figured while I had the time to kill this evening I ought to try to give you a few songs for you to listen to! Headed here in a little while to a free Adam Hood show at County Line BBQ. Can’t wait! Seven Year Drought — Jamie Lin Wilson Let’s start this playlist off with a song I’ve had stuck in my head ever since I bought the CD. Mr. Tambourine — Bob Dylan…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 05/05/2015

Twelve Things Tuesday: 05/05/2015

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Here in San Antonio, it’s not the prettiest of days to celebrate, but I’m sure people will find a way! But to the list: ONE: Since this will be the third week, that something A&M will not only be included on this list, but at the top, I guess it needs to be made into a tradition! But really, this deserves to be at the top because of how amazing and important it is to highlight. For the 39th year, the Corps of Cadets at Texas…

@ the Moment: Playlist Update

@ the Moment: Playlist Update

Back in February, I did my first musical-related post in quite sometime. I concluded that post with one of my Spotify playlists called “@ the Moment”. I keep this playlist towards the top of my list of playlists. More often than not, it’s where I throw new songs that I really have been loving, old songs that I hadn’t heard in a long time but need more of in my life and then random ones I stumble across while browsing through Spotify that I can’t imagine my day without! It’s…

Big City Turn Me Loose, Set Me Free

Big City Turn Me Loose, Set Me Free

Back in May of last year, I had posted a feature on some of my favorites from the great Merle Haggard, and here recently one of those tunes has stayed on the tip of my tongue. But no, I am not walking off of my job today! Ha, in fact other than my job, there has been a lot of change in my life here in 2015. The most important change of all, would be my living situation! I have completely moved out of the city and out to the…

Song Request Please

Song Request Please

Do you sometimes randomly start thinking about a song, then listen to it several times in a row? And later in day do you hear it on the radio? Oh my goodness, this has been happening to me so often! I can understand this happening with newer music, but the kinds of songs that usually pop in my head randomly are the country gold kind of oldies. Most recently, this was the case with “From a Jack to a King”. Yesterday, on my way to work the catchy little chorus started rolling off the…

Blue Santa & a New Series! My Best-Loved at the Moment

Blue Santa & a New Series! My Best-Loved at the Moment

Holy moly, it’s Thursday y’all! And thank goodness. This week is a bit of a love-hate. December is so much fun because of the holidays, but really and truly the holidays just mean that work is even more busy and squeezed into a fewer amount of days. BUT, oh the holidays. How wonderful they are on so many different levels. From the obvious gift-giving to the generosity, it is just simply a special time of they year. On that note, first, I want to give a big shout out to…
