Via iHeartRadio

After an extremely successful “1989 World Tour,” Taylor Swift will be honored with the Best Tour Award during this year’s iHeartRadio Music Awards. Best Tour is a brand new category at our upcoming awards show, and T-Swift is up for seven other awards this year. Taylor traveled the world, bringing her latest album 1989 to her Swifties, live in concert – not to mention all of the incredible guest appearances/performers throughout the show.

Fans are hoping to see Swift’s newest Music Video for “New Romantics” at the iHeartAwards but so far nothing has been mentioned! Be sure to tune in Sunday, April 3 to see Swift take home her awards, and all the others too. 😉

Here’s hoping we get a group photo of Swift, Gomez, Harris and Timberlake!

Seating chart!

“Church Bells” To Be Carrie Underwood’s Next Single – Listen

I can hear the “Church Bells” ringing ringing. Carrie Underwood is no stranger to singing about a woman getting her revenge, even in the form of murder (“Two Black Cadillacs.”) Her new single, “Church Bells” tells the story of a young girl who married up and ended up being abused by her husband. The Church Bells end up being metaphorical throughout the song.

 

In the first part of the song, they sort of offer up redemption from her poor life and are always a sign of hope, everything’s going to be alright. In the next chorus, after being abused, she seeks refuge and strength at church and they seem to offer hope and the courage to do what she needs. Although, murder is never okay, it seems to be over looked sometimes in cases of songs with women and abuse. Somehow it gets covered up and untraceable (“Goodbye Earl” by the Dixie Chicks is another example.) After killing her husband, the church bells sort of represent hope again, that she is no longer in any danger and will be alright.

And how he died is still a mystery

But he hit a woman for the very last time

She could hear those church bells ringing, ringing

Standing there in a black dress singing, singing

LISTEN TO CARRIE UNDERWOOD’S NEW SINGLE: “CHURCH BELLS”

 

2nd Annual ‘Party For A Cause’ Recap- April 2014

The 2nd Annual Party For A Cause Festival was just as fun as the first! This year was wonderful for me because I was able to enjoy the performances as well as meet the talent! It was wild, they would perform and then sometimes right after come over to meet the fans. I mean, how great is that?!

The first person I got to see was one of my favorites, Charlie Worsham! He was also at the 1st annual PFAC.

I saw many other great performers that weekend like Love and Theft!

There was even a set up red carpet to take pictures with artists as well! Brett Eldredge, Will Hoge, Austin Webb and Tyler Farr were there!

It was a jam packed two days and I can’t believe how many amazing artists took the time to be there and meet all the fans! Cassadee Pope was there again for a second year, Danielle Bradbery, Randy Houser, Leah Turner, Eastin Corbin,  and Chase Rice! WOW!

After two days of jam packed music I headed over to the ACM Awards and got to meet more amazing artists on the red carpet! My Favorites! Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift!

What a weekend! Cannot wait for the fourth annual celebration, April 1-3!
