Show You Off with a Brand New Buzz because Heaven Knows God Made Girls

I am so late posting tonight! This weekend got away from me – but with it being a holiday weekend, you can relate, right? School starts in a few days – I had every intention of getting the kids back into an early morning routine to build up to it, but that didn’t happen. We’ll just have to wing it.

And by ‘we’, I really mean ‘me’. Let the begin!

This week’s theme is a , so let’s have fun with it, shall we? Let’s start off with a duo whose new single is all about struttin’ around with a hottie on your arm. Well, on their  arm. Though I’m sure the hubby or any red-blooded guy wouldn’t mind a hottie struttin’ on my arm.

But I digress. Even though it’s a ‘story’ that’s told often, this duo’s charming harmonies make that story feel fresh. The song isn’t sweet like honey or molasses — it’s more like the crisp flavor of a fresh-picked peach.

Next up is a duo I’m really excited about their new album coming out later this month (the 23rd, to be exact). It’s weird to think that back in 2009, they were nowhere to be found, even though they’d had some awesome hits prior to radio silence. One of the duo was recovering from neck surgery, and the other released his first solo album, instigating rumors they’d parted ways.

Then in 2012 they showed back up with another amazing song, teasing us fans who were hoping for an imminent return, but another year went by with more radio silence. But this year is finally the year – this newest album will be their fifth studio album as a duo. When they first started as a duo, they made their name with a mixture of party songs and sentimental ballads.

This new album will not disappoint, since they parted ways with their original label and formed their own, which means they now get to do their songs their own way. I hope this is the beginning of lots of to come.

Up next is a song that caught my ear and attention earlier this summer while watching one of my favorite summer shows, Rookie Blue. The song itself has a great tap-your-toe beat, and the video is quite intriguing.

Lots of mixed reviews on both the video and the song – the artist has said they “decided to film variations of all the issues we as a people are facing – whether it’s personal, political or social. Everything is thrown at you from the day you’re born, your only chance is to think for yourself, which is not as simple as it sounds.”

Without further ado, here’s with “Heaven Knows”:

Last but not least is a former “The Voice” contestant who’s climbing the charts with her brand new single. It’s only been two years since this artist was on the second season of ‘The Voice’ in 2012, but she’s done a lot in that time, including songwriting, writing lots of music and getting out on a radio tour. Even though she didn’t win the show, she built a friendship with both and

She’s said that The Voice ignited a fire in her to be an artist and counry singer – but not winning the show ignited a bigger fire, making her want it even more. Hence the reason she’s been working hard writing and recording. She loved doing the video for this song, she said it was magical. 

From majestic mountains to a full, bright moon, the video’s effects and scenery are gorgeous. There’s even a white horse and a ballerina – the artist looks like a fairy princess as she sits on giant stairs that seem to lead straight to the sky.

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.
