We are returning to our regularly scheduled programming with our “Video Picks of the Week.”
This week’s music video is the Pistol Annie‘s hit first single, “Hell on Heels.” The Annies sure were a surprise this year, but what an awesome surprise they were. “Hell on Heels” is one of my favorite songs of the year and Miranda Lambert, Angaleena Presley, and Ashley Monroe’s voices blend so well together. They are the perfect country trio.
This week’s live performance pick is Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson performing their cross-over mega hit “Don’t You Wanna Stay” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “Don’t You Wanna Stay” was definitely one of the biggest and best songs of 2011 as well as one of my favorites. Aldean and Clarkson made great duet partners, and the song earned them a nomination for “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” at the upcoming 54th Grammy Awards.
Taylor Swift is pretty much unstoppable. She had another huge year and wrapped up her widely successful “Speak Now World Tour.” As you probably know, Swift performed a cover song by a hometown artist in most cities along the tour run. When she stopped in Philly, she did a mash-up of Pink’s “Who Knew” and TLC’s “Unpretty.” It was one of my favorites from the whole tour. What was your favorite? Thank-you to Taylor’s fan for sharing the concert videos.
