Preparing For a Hurricane? Download These Storm Savvy Songs!

This post is aimed at (primarily) my fellow Floridians as they anticipate and prepare for Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac. All of you who have been through one of these dreaded storms know that when the electricity goes out, it can be days (sometimes weeks) before it is restored. We at Keepin’ It Country thought it would be fun to give you some last minute storm savvy tunes to load on to your iPods. Hey, if you can’t avoid Isaac, welcome him with open arms … and great weather-related music!

Carrie Underwood & Vince Gill sing for Preds fans!


Only in Nashville would you get two of the biggest country music stars performing  in between periods at a NHL playoff hockey game. Carrie was wearing her husband Mike Fisher’s #12 Predators jersey and sang Cowboy Casanova for the Preds fans in a surprise performance. Vince Gill joined her onstage. Jo Dee Messina sang the national anthem before the game, which the Predators lost 6-3.

Mike Fisher helped his team move on past the first round yesterday for the first time in 15 years. They’re still waiting to hear who their second round opponent will be.
