What’s Going On #DrakeWhite

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Lately, I’ve listened to the country station on iTunes radio a lot when this morning’s artist popped up.  I’m sure it was blog buddy Stacy Uncorked who introduced this ole boy to me, but when this song played it sorta stuck and I knew the only cure was for me to share it with you.

 

 

Drake White is a southern fried boy, born and raise in Alabama. He grew up singing in the choir and writing songs at 14. This was the start of something big to come, but before he got into music he earned a degree in building science and started life off as a general contractor in Nashville, Tennessee. Was it a coincidence that White wound up in the music capital of the world? I don’t know, but he put aside his slide ruler, hammer, and saw in favor of a singing career and he happened to be in the right city to do it.

Drake White and The Big Fire was the open act for big names (Eric Church, Luke Bryan, and Lynyrd Skynyrd) in country. White is still the new kid on the block, releasing his first single The Simple Life in 2013(peaked 36 on Country Airplay charts), and signed with Big Machine Records June of last year, but that all being said I think the boy has a future with building a music career. Here’s his newest single, It Feels Good.

 

 

Who does White sound like to you?  I can’t put my finger on it and it’s driving me a bit nuts. I hope you can help.

 

In the past year, I shared a bit of selfie humor ~  last fall and this spring. It fun to make fun of oneself or better still those caught up in the crazy phenomenon. Anywho, I saw a hilarious video done by Pizza Hut and I knew that I HAD to pass the giggles on.  Have you seen it? No! Okay, enjoy!

 

What’s got you smiling?

I found doing my photo-art each week that there’s a poet locked inside trying to get out. What do  you think?

That’s a wrap for this week. I hope you enjoyed your visit and I appreciate you including me in your weekend. Feel free to invite your friends to stop in for a listen. It’s a great feeling to share! What’s next….more music with Monday Mewzik & Mewzings!

3-for-1 Saturday Special: Songsuasion/Sillies & s-ART-urday #Westlife

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Originally signed by Simon Cowell, the Irish boy band ~ Westlife sold more than 50 million records worldwide, but never found a stronghold in the USA until 2000 with their single hit, Swear It Again (Westlife 1999 album track 1). This band isn’t new-to-me, but isn’t all that familiar to me, either. While Googling songs about “queens”, this song popped up by them.

 

Queen of my Hearts, written by John McLaughlin, Wayne Hector, and Steve Robson became the band’s 9th UK number #1 single, staying at the top of the chart for one week.  If you like this song, then I invite you to listen to their entire album Westlife 1999 this morning on Saturday Songsuasion while you take a peek at my #s-ART-urday contribution.

#s-ART-urday project #5 This photo-art creation comprises two of my personal images ~ the moon and mountain landscape. I adjusted contrast and added a touch of grain texture. The poetry verse is something I composed to go with my artwork. The owl face image, I borrowed from Google and opted to use as an overly. To finish things off, I added a basic black frame and my copyright. My photo editor of choice is PhotoShop Elements.

I’ll share this little silly with ya…
