MEGHAN-LINSEY-COUNTING-STARS

Fans of Steel Magnolia are in for a treat this new year, as Meghan Linsey, the female half of the duo is going solo. Linsey gives fans a taste of her new style with an impressive cover of OneRepublic’s hit, “Counting Stars.”

“Lately, lately I’ve been losing sleep, dreaming about the things that we could be,” Linsey croons in her powerful, yet undeniably country voice and from the opening lyrics, listeners are bound to be captivated. The video takes viewers through a fun and quirky array of colors and styles.

We have to admit that we’re all kinds of obsessed with this cover song and cannot wait for more from Meghan Linsey in 2014!

Aaron Watson Pays Homage to Lane Frost

Aaron Watson July in Cheyenne

Aaron Watson, a country singer who has experienced success to the tune of 200,000 album sales, half a million downloads, four charted albums, and several nationally charted Billboard singles, recently released a new album, Real Good Time. Real Good Time reached Number Nine on Billboard’s country chart and has since sustained its placement on said chart.

Aaron has released three singles thus far off his latest album, but his fourth and final single, “July In Cheyenne,” is the most poignant and personally meaningful. A nod to Lane Frost, one of the most prolific professional bull riders to ever compete, the song references Lane’s career and his tragic death at Cheyenne Frontier Days. Through the track, Aaron tells the remainder of Lane’s story that was not portrayed in the Hollywood blockbuster 8 Seconds. The song was so moving that it struck a friendship between Aaron and Lane’s mom, Elsie Frost, to whom Aaron wrote and dedicated the song.

In honor of rodeo season commencing, as well as the twenty-fifth anniversary of Lane Frost’s untimely death, we ask that you watch the video below for “July in Cheyenne” and check out Aaron Watson’s website for updates on his music and tour dates.

Premiere of Kelly Clarkson’s “Underneath the Tree” Video

Kelly Clarkson Underneath the Tree

The first single off of Kelly Clarkson‘s Christmas album, Wrapped In Red, has proven to be quite a success in terms of holiday music. Kelly has now released a music video to accompany “Underneath the Tree,” which continues to bring the holiday cheer this season.

Wrapped in gold (and red, of course), Kelly performs the upbeat song about wanting just one thing under her tree this year — that someone special. Kelly’s band trades in their typically comfortable stage attire for a more formal and dapper look, complete with red instruments to capture the spirit of the song. The video also gives a backstage glimpse into Kelly’s preparations for the several performances and specials in which she has participated in celebration of this year’s holidays.

Check out Kelly’s latest music video below and get yourself ready for the upcoming holiday! And if you haven’t already picked up a copy of Wrapped In Red, you might want to ask for that to be underneath your tree!

Kennedy Noel: Never Stop Video Debuts Tomorrow

Kennedy+Noel+_MG_5659Edit

At the end of last year, we introduced you to Kennedy Noel, a teenage prodigy with her hands in several projects in order to help her musical career thrive. Well, over the last ten plus months, Kennedy has continued to put her incredible talent to work, keeping her eyes on the prize and ensuring she came out a winner.

We recently caught back up with Kennedy, who you may all remember as a teenager far wiser than her years, and with her feet in the country music capital and her heart in rock ‘n’ roll. We are so excited to announce that our young and ever-so-driven Keepin’ It Country friend, Kennedy, will be releasing a video for her original rock song, Never Stop, tomorrow, October 15th. Not only did this uber talented musician write the song (which is an anthem for not allowing others’ negative words to keep you from accomplishing your goals), but she also wrote the treatment and had all the creative ideas for the video. Kennedy’s talents are truly limitless, and we cannot wait to watch Never Stop when it becomes live!

Check out Kennedy’s original video tomorrow by clicking here … And don’t try to cheat! The video will not become public before then!

Congratulations to Kennedy! We are so proud of you!
