Some things are perfect

Update: What happened?!!!! Well, it was Miranda Lambert singing Tin Man live on an awards show. It was brilliant. Oh well.

Update 2: Here’s a lyric video of the studio version. Definitely one of the best country songs in a decade.


I can watch this over and over and over and over and over again. The words, the performance, the beautiful, clear sound of her voice … sublime.

Music Post: Sam Hunt

I found this post in my drafts from two years ago. I can’t believe I’ve been a Sam Hunt fan for two whole years. Of course, he’s a bit overproduced these days, but this album is early and more bare bones than his current work. You can really get a sense of his talent here.

I love that he’s created his own style that no one can imitate. I know it drives the labels insane because they absolutely love to find a trend and run it into the ground. But nobody tries “Hunting” without looking like an idiot. It’s too specific.

A good singer/songwriter always just blows my mind. Putting the words and the melody and the rhythms together, making it meaningful, delivering it with passion and sincerity … just bliss to listen to.

Today’s inspiration music (the entire mix):

You can’t download this album anymore. I have no idea why, but it’s a shame. I’d pay good money for it.

Bean likey. Sweet Dreams!  photo d29c1cc4-c064-4c77-a13d-c4eb4bb55603_zpsxyqt7mxa.jpg
