Never Be Sorry for Settling Down, let’s Own This Town and Live For Now!

Monday has arrived, and you know what that means, don’t you? Time for some ! This week is a freebie week, so grab your favorite tune(s), and come dance with , won’t you? Let’s get this started!

Let’s start with a song that’s a happy spin on gone wrong:

Sometimes two people end up victims of love / It don’t work out like you planned it / Just ’cause we couldn’t get the stars to line up / Don’t mean we leave empty-handed

On of the artists was quoted as saying:

“Ending a relationship can be hard and frustrating, but this song reminds you not to forget you loved that person – and you shouldn’t be apologetic for that. Forever slips away sometimes, but never be sorry for falling in love.”

This upbeat, bouncy song is about being truly grateful for the time spent together. Even though there’s heartache at the end, that doesn’t mean the relationship wasn’t worth it.

“‘[This song]’ is about that unfortunate realization when sometimes you’re in a relationship that just wasn’t what you thought it was and also wasn’t what it used to be.”

“It can be hard, sad, and frustrating, but [it’s] also important to remember that you loved that person and shouldn’t be apologetic for loving them. Maybe it didn’t work out, but like the song says, you cannot be sorry for falling in love with that person. Remembering those details, and the good parts that made the relationship unique and special, is what keeps it alive in some way, forever in your .”

Next up, plenty of artists have taken to shooting their music videos at home during Covid-19, but for this artist, the unfortunate circumstances of the pandemic have presented a unique opportunity to flex.

In her video, she shows off her impressive farm outside of Nashville and her impressively ripped husband. Her horse Gibson and one of her rescue dogs, Delta Dawn, also make appearances. She was quoted as saying:

“My mom always told me I was a wild child and a homing pigeon. [This song] really tells that story. And it’s not just my story. It’s all of our stories.”

Here’s the adorable Miranda Lambert with “Settling Down”:

Next up is a new solo song by this artist from a favorite group, spreading encouragement during the coronavirus pandemic with the release of this new single. He was quoted as saying:

“It’s a song I wrote in 2011 and I’ve always cherished it. My friend Emanuel Kiriakou, a very successful producer, and I came up with it together. The song has a lot of hope in it.”

“It’s about getting up and showing up, even when times are tough. The protagonist in this song is someone who’s been there before, with ups and downs, but still wants to for the fences, get out that bat and go for it.”

“That rings especially true in uncertain times. Everything feels bigger and heavier nowadays with the pandemic, but we have to keep living. Some days, you don’t want to get out of bed. Then some days, you get inspired, hear a song, read something, see something or you’re struck by something beautiful. The song is really about taking that shot and continuing to show up for yourself and others.”

Get ready to dance, here’s Joey McIntyre with “Own This Town”:

Next up, while this artist is best known for playing Hawkeye/Clint Barton in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he occasionally likes to drop some music. In fact, this will mark the Marvel star’s second music announcement of the year as he also released an entire album back in March. He was quoted as saying:

“I’ve always found music to be one of the few things that unite people in a pure way. Common ground can be hard to find in today’s world, but music has remained a constant for me. To feel deeply, to dance fervently, and live together is more present now than ever.”

Give a listen to multi-talented Jeremy Renner with “Live For Now”:

That’s a wrap for this week – have a great Monday, I’ll see you on the dance floor, keeping that social distancing! Seriously though – hope you all are staying safe and healthy.

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.

  1. Stacy,

    I’m back! Thanks for holding down the fort while I was on staycation with DH. 😉

    Your mewsic picks are all new to me. My favorite of these introductions is Old Dominion. I’m gonna check out more of their mewsic. Thanks for sharing the dance floor with me, darlin’! Have a boogietastic week. 😘

  2. All of these are new to me – I enjoyed Old Dominion the best as far as the song itself (although the last half of Jeremy Renner’s song grabbed me, too). For video, Miranda Lambert has such a beautiful horse, and if I had a farm like that to quarantine on, I would so be enjoying all that natural land. It does intrigue me seeing the various ways video makers have to get around our new restrictions. It brings out a lot of imagination (like in Jeremy Renner’s song.)
