Grammys 2016

I’m sure most of you watched the Grammys. And to say the least, I don’t think it was the most exciting event, but I have to admit. But I’am  really happy with the majority of the rockstars who actually won awards.

I don’t remember the whole list, but I’m extremely excited that Chris Stapleton and Kendrick Lamar won big! Good for those guys, they deserve it!

But just in case you live under a rock, here are the best and worst moments from 2016 Grammys in the link below.

I’m extremely happy about the nominees for the women’s country category. Especially Kacey Musgraves and Ashley Monroe.

I wrote a blog about Kacey a while back, but I absolutely love her music. She’s down to earth Texas country. She writes these stories that are relatable. It’s simple and beautiful.

Ashley is a quote a quote “newer artist”. She’s really not, she’s been around, but she’s finally getting the recognition she deserves. Her song “If love was Fair” is amazing. And as I’m writing, I’m listening to it on repeat. Check her out!

Not Your Typical Girl

It is CMA week here in Nashville. Basically, another reason for everyone to get really, really drunk. And of course, to celebrate the talented musicians that roam the lovely 615.

However, there’s been something bothering me, and I finally can address it as an issue. I get that I’m a girl, with blonde hair and blue eyes, but that does mean I don’t know what I’m doing and that I’m stupid. To me, that’s worst than being sexist, you are literally judging me based on how I look. Just about every meeting that I’ve had, everyone that I’ve talked to. Everyone has told me, that I will have a harder time because I’m “pretty with blonde hair blue eyes.” To be honest, I don’t even know what the hell that means.

But then I watched the CMAs tonight, and I saw that Chris Stapleton stole the night. Not your typical, really good looking, pop country artist out there. But his music is fantastic and according to the rest of the world, everyone else agrees with me. So what does that mean for me, it means that I have a chance to make it as a production person in the music world, even if I don’t “look” like your typical girl working backstage.
