"..dream big, follow those dreams. nothing worth accomplishing is going to be achieved by quitting when what you have burns to the ground, nothing worth accomplishing is going to be achieved by jumping ship when the waters get rough. we all have the ability to dream, it’s up to us what comes next."

(i’ve been doing #tunestuesday over on instagram, lately. my apologies for posting here so sparsely..)

today, i’m digging a little bit of everything (nope, not keith urban)..

ryan adams released his first single since his 2011 LP. (2011 was a long time ago, as far as good music goes..) "gimme something good" has a tom petty vibe, which americansongwriterย also noticed—stream the track + read more from them, here! adams’ 14th album is set to release in september.

soon-to-be country queen raelynn's first single "God made girls" is already heating up the charts on its debut day. theย former ‘voice’ contestant may be young, but her songwriter “sisters” nicolle galyon + miranda lambert have already dubbed rae the “next big thang.”ย (ps-i’m a brunette, but “platinum” is a jam, yall)

find these tunes + many more in my brand new spotify playlist titled "brighter." (fresh tracks i love from matthew mayfield, kacey musgraves, andy grammer, ed sheeran, + adam levine (“lost stars” from the ‘begin again’ soundtrack feels like a throwback to “songs about jane”—in the best way. stoked to see the movie.))


until next week.. enjoy the tunes! : )
