Hello my country music friends…
It’s “Video Picks of the Week” time again! I hope you are enjoying the weekly videos. Don’t forget to leave some comments and any suggestions for videos or artists you would like to see in the future.
This week’s music video is Martina McBride‘s powerful ballad, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It.” The song is the second single off of her new album, Eleven, and also just garnered McBride a Grammy Award nomination for “Best Country Solo Performance.” The song and video are very emotional with an inspiring message of hope, and McBride’s powerhouse vocals were the perfect fit for the track. Thank-you to Martina for recording this song, for all it represents, and for the awareness it brings.
The live performance pick is Blake Shelton performing his number one hit, “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking,” for AOL Sessions. The song was the second single off of his EP, All About Tonight. It is one of my all-time favorite Blake tracks.
I think most of us can agree that not many artists have had a bigger year than Adele, and deservingly so. This week’s cover song video is Adele and Darius Rucker‘s beautiful performance of Lady Antebellum‘s “Need You Now” at last year’s CMT Artists of the Year.
Thanks for reading!
