The world lost a true music legend with the recent passing of Bill Withers. He’s always been on my playlist, but even more so lately. This song is really a great way to start off your day to put you in a good mood. May you all have a lovely day!
The lyrics to this song really hit home with all of us stuck at home. You’ll be singing about uneventful, never-ending days, but all of a sudden you’ll be okay with it because of how groovy this track is!
If you need some motivation during quarantine or reassurance that everything is okay, listen to this track. This is the ultimate female empowerment song.
This is a song about meditation – which I think we could all use right now. While the world seems like its spiraling out of control right now, you can always try to take a step back and focus on the “universal sound.”
Lennon & Maisy:
This sweet song written by Ashley Monroe and Sarah Siskind first appeared on the show Nashville. IT IS SO GOOD. Especially right now, it serves as a great way reflect on our lives and remind us what we DO have.
The Rolling Stones:
I’m still in mourning about The Stones postponing their summer tour. So, I’ve been listening to them a lot lately. This is one of my favorite song of theirs – it’s got such a good groove!
Another music legend gone too soon who of course has been on my playlist. This has always been a favorite of mine. It’s a love song for the “odd” couples.
This is such a great tune by local bassist/vocalist Scott Mulvahill. It looks at having to begin again as a good thing. In a lot of ways, once quarantine lifts, I feel like we’re all going to be beginning again – let’s take it in stride!
If you don’t know The Highwomen – they are the power quartet of Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Amanda Shires, and Natalie Hemby. Need I say more? This is another female empowerment anthem!
The Gabe Dixon Band:
This song instantly puts you in a good mood! If you need to feel like everything is going to be okay, listen to his beautiful song All Will Be Well.
Death Cab for Cutie:
Firstly, you should really listen to all of Death Cab’s music. They are my all-time favorite band. This song hits home with how rapidly Nashville is changing. It’s kind of a love letter mourning a city that’s on the rise.
This song is about feeling out of control, which I think everyone is feeling to a degree right now. Her whole album is really great – I recommend listening to all of it!
The Avett Brothers:
The Avett Brothers always put my mind to ease with their calming tones and harmonies. This is one of their best love songs in my opinion – it’s so well written!
