What I'm Playing Thursday

Photobucket

I've never participated in a "link-up" before so welcome to my very first one via the blog We're Just Like You Only Prettier.  I thought this was a fun one to do because I love finding out about new artists from others.  Hopefully you'll see something you like that I'm listening to.  I'd love to know what YOU are listening to.

First up is a cutie I discovered on You Tube via his acoustic cover of Colbie Calliat's "I Never Told You".  It's amazing and I've listened to it more times that I can count.  He does crazy good covers, so I highly recommend checking him out via his Facebook fan page or his YouTube channel (Did I mention he's easy on the eyes?).   His latest cover is probably my favorite song on the radio right now, so I was more than excited when I saw he covered it.  It's "Grenade" by Bruno Mars:

Zac Brown Band is my favorite country band. I get all tingly listening to "Colder Weather" ever since I saw them play in live on a CMT special a few months ago.  I wanted to see them perform at the Houston Rodeo, but it's not going to work-out and I'm bummed.  Booo!  Maybe they'll come to Dallas soon, and someone will surprise me with tickets!  Ha, I wish.  

I was mesmerized when I first heard "If I Die Young" by the Band Perry for the first time and I just downloaded their debut CD to my itunes a few weeks ago.  Their latest single is "You Lie" and I heart it almost as much as I heart "If I Die Young".  "You Lie" is currently on my work-out playlist because it's a great 'girl done wrong by boy' song.  We can all relate I'm sure.

I think I'll stop with my top 3 favorites. I hope you enjoyed my first ever link-up. Have a great Thursday and happy listening!

  6. If I Die Young pulls at my heart stings every single time I hear it....I constantly think of my friend who lost her husband at a very young age 2 years ago.
