hey Southern Girl, the Boys ‘Round Here think they’re Royals – but you should just Follow Your Arrow and Roar!

Here we are, the final  Monday of 2013.  Did you enjoy the past year?  We've had some highs and lows, as usual – and my opinion is that the year went by way too .  Although still being stuck in Mode, life seems to be slow as molasses, while the days are speeding by with a frantic pace.

I'm so ready to be out of Basement Dweller Mode.  We're looking at houses this week, so hopefully there will be a light at the end of the tunnel – the good kind, and not that of an oncoming train.  Ahem.

With this final Monday's Music Moves Me of the year, our theme is great tunes from 2013 or any tunes to do with time.  I only paid attention to the first part of that, since I'm always in hit-and-run mode with spotty internet, so I went with great tunes from 2013.

First up we're going with a hot and talented artist who the tabloids seem to want to divide he and his wife – luckily they don't pay attention to those tabloids.


Here's the awesome Tim McGraw with “Southern Girl”:

Next up is another top one from this year, and it's even caught the ear of my non-country fan hubby, who will now turn it up everytime he hears it come on the radio (during the times I'm in the car with him and he graciously switches to my favorite channel from his).


Here's with “Boys ‘Round Here”  featuring Pistol Annies & Friends:

Next up is another that 2013 wouldn't have been the same without – especially if you ask the hubby and Princess , who both ask that this song get cranked up when it comes on.


Give a listen to Lorde with “Royals”:

Not only is the next song a pick for 2013, but it's fairly new (I think) from an artist who initially made an impact simply penning some awesome tunes for other artists, but who fairly recently has actually come into her own talent both writing and performing.  I love the concept of this song – you will, too.


Here's the cute Kacey Musgraves with “Follow Your Arrow”:

And of course 2013 would have been just a tad boring if this artist hadn't caused such an uproar with her music video to this particularly awesome song.  Just sayin'.


Here's the inimitable with “Roar”:

And finally, today happens to be my favorite Sister-In-Law's – Roxann (affectionately known as Roxy Baby Cool Chick) has been a blessing who has put up with my brother for many years, and I'm happy to call her ‘sister'.  Happy Birthday, Roxy!  Hope my brother spoils you rotten today (and every day, for that matter), here's a birthday song just for you:

That's a wrap for this week – have a great Monday and a Happy New Year!


Now on to the particulars of Monday's Music Move's Me:


I have the supreme honor and privilege of being a co-host with the inimitable Xmas Dolly and our musical cohorts, Callie from JAmericanSpice, Cathy from Cathy Kennedy's Blog, and Naila Moon at Just the Stuff Ya Know, and since our own Cathy will be on hiatus for a few weeks, our friend Becca from Everyday Life is picking up the slack (thanks for picking up my slack too, Becca!)

Want to join in the fun? It's easy – just find a tune that rocks your boat, post it and link up – don't forget to grab Xmas Dolly…er, um, I mean her button…over at her place here. Check out Xmas Dolly's sidebar for the random themes we sport each week – and you can always ask for a specific theme of music you like, too. Check out the other music lovahs and let's jam!

About StacyUncorked

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.
