    Let Kelly Clarkson Move You: The Deep Cuts

    She’s back! Kelly Clarkson debuted her highly anticipated new single “Love So Soft” this morning. The singer took to her socials over the last week to tease the new single with imagery and short clips of the track. Then yesterday, she teased the hashtag #MoveYou accompanied by a clip of what sounds like another track causing the internet to go into a frenzy. “Is a full Clarkson album on the way?,” “Are we getting a double dose of new Kelly goodness?” This morning, along with Clarkson’s new fiery single, she dropped the emotional new ballad “Move You,” along with the artwork (seen below) and title of her upcoming album. When talking…

    March Music: Spring Has Sprung

    The weather has started to take its highly anticipated turn towards the sun. Patios are filling up with anxious people, ready to throw on their shorts and flip-flops and enjoy an icy cold beer in the sun. And though my allergies are worse than ever, the warmer air makes me want to drop the windows and pop the top with a fresh playlist of March music to kick off the Spring. With new tunes emerging from some of my favorite divas like Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson and Adele, and fresh new talents like Maren Morris delivering ideal music for road trips, this Spring is filling up with plenty of tunes to wet your musical…

    Cassadee Pope Sings “Let Me Go”

    Cassadee Pope took the stage at the Girls of Winter event at Nashville’s City Winery tonight. And despite the choice of venue (see my note about my first unfortunate visit to City Winery here), Pope dazzled the crowd when she emerged among the group of Nashville based ladies to close the show. In addition to The Voice winner’s smash debut single “Wasting All These Tears,” which she performed with the song’s co-writer Caitlyn Smith, she debuted her rumored new single “Let Me Go.” A gorgeous ballad telling the story of a misunderstood girl tied down by “chains” controlled by someone who doesn’t understand her. Cassadee gave audiences a glimpse into…

    Kelly Clarkson: Piece By Piece | Album Review

    Since the release of her last record, Kelly Clarkson‘s personal life has done a complete 180º turn around with the marriage to her manager’s son, Brandon Blackstock, the birth of her first daughter River Rose and a continued battle of public scrutiny about her weight. Though she has never been one to flaunt her personal life through the tabloids and often ignores stories of her weight, Clarkson instead shifts focus on her music and her voice. The voice that won her the title of America’s first Idol in 2002, a bundle of Grammy Awards and countless radio hits. On Tuesday, the singer will deliver her seventh studio album Piece By Piece, which has been noted as the singer’s most…

    Kelly Clarkson Shares Her Heartbeat

    One day you’re hot and the next your not. That’s the story so often with musicians in today’s industry, who constantly have to fight to find relevance on radio’s fickle playlists. Though nothing has been farther from reality for Kelly Clarkson, who began delivering her anthemic pop hits over a decade ago after winning the first season of American Idol. Following her wildly successful Stronger record in 2011, the singer took some well-deserved time off to marry Brandon Blackstock, son of her manager Narvel and manager to Blake Shelton, and give birth to her daughter River Rose. During the time off though, Kelly released a Greatest Hits compilation which included new singles…

    Hollywood With A Touch of Twang

    One of the best things about moving to a new city is discovering its local cuisine and the favorite hot spots of its residents.  In Nashville, this means being in the company of some chart topping artists and well-known songwriters.  Since my move to this great city, which was almost a year ago (WOW!), readers, friends and family have asked me my recommendations on my favorite spots in town.  Although a bit of a detour from the music-related posts, I put together some of my picks to add to your itinerary if you’re planning a trip to Music City anytime soon.
