Video Picks Of The Week: February 5, 2012
We give you our latest “Video Picks of the Week!”
This week’s music video is The Wreckers‘ number one hit single, “Leave The Pieces.” I have always been a big Michelle Branch fan so when she formed The Wreckers with Jessica Harp back in 2005, I was excited to check out their music. Their album Stand Still, Look Pretty is still one of my favorite country albums, and is comprised of some really great music. The girls returned to their solo careers after just one record, but the duo is still one of my favorite country groups and I hope to hear more country music from Branch and Harp in the future. Meanwhile, keep an eye out for Branch’s new mainstream album that is slated to drop this year.

This week’s live pick is Chuck Wicks‘ beautiful acoustic performance of his song, “All I Ever Wanted” on Music Business Radio with Monty Powell. The track was the second single off of Wicks’ debut album, Starting Now. I have always liked this song, but I really enjoyed this stripped down version. I love music at its bare bones and that is what Wicks did here. As a side note, Wicks has been working on new music and I can’t wait for another album from him!
Bob Dylan’s “To You Feel My Love” has been covered by several artists and many have had success with it. The biggest success, however, comes from Garth Brooks. His version of the song was part of the Hope Floats soundtrack in 1998, and reached number one on the country charts. It also garnered Brooks and Dylan nods for the 41st Grammy Awards.
The other most noteworthy version of the song probably comes from vocal sensation, Adele. It is included on her debut album 19, and served as the album’s fifth single. It is a fantastic cover, but with Adele’s beautiful voice, who would expect anything less?
With that said, this week’s cover video is Adele performing the hit song on The Late Show With David Letterman.
We hope you are enjoying the videos! As always, leave us some video suggestions and feedback.
Until next time…
