Just found this yearly report on Last.FM so adding to my 2017 listening stats: Actually only 3 events because the Adele concert was cancelled.Β  😦   Advertisements

2017 In Music

Most Played Artists in 2017 No surprises as to the top three as I was “discovering” them and going through their discography.Β  I’m surprised at “Nashville Cast” being on there since I stopped watching the show pretty much near the start of last year but obviously still like the music!Β  Luke Bryan – wow I […]

Train @ Eventim Apollo, London (23 October 2017)

I have to start this review with a little bit of a moan.Β  Barely three songs into Train’s set and a venue usher tapped me on the shoulder and told me I couldn’t take photos with my camera, only with my phone.Β  Are you freaking kidding me?!Β  In what bizarre world does that make sense?!Β  […]

Little Big Town – The Breaker (2017)

🌟🌟🌟   I really like Little Big Town but unfortunately only about half of the songs on The Breaker captured my interest. What I do appreciate is the more grown-up sound that seems to be fast disappearing from country/pop acts that seem to be competing with each other to capture the party vibe.Β  The closest […]

Kelsea Ballerini – The First Time (2015)

🌟🌟🌟🌟½ I wish I’d blogged about this album when I first listened to it in January of this year so I couldn’t be accused of seeing it through rose-tinted “I just saw her in concert” glasses.Β  I love every song on it and did so back on first discovery but it would be foolish not […]

Lady Antebellum @ The O2, London (10 October 2017)

Concert promoters take note – how you make concert goers happy and give them value for money is provide them with not one but two opening acts who have each put out successful debut albums and could probably, as Lady A said themselves, headline concerts in their own right. An hour after the doors opened, […]

Eli Young Band – Fingerprints (2017)

🌟🌟🌟½   I love Eli Young Band’s past two albums.Β  Looking through my iTunes I can see that I liked every single track on Life At Best and the majority of 10,000 Towns.Β  It’s a little bit of a shock to me that their discography goes back further than those two hit albums so I’ll […]

Brett Young – Brett Young (2017)

🌟🌟 I decided to check out Brett Young as soon as I saw he was going to be a support act for Lady Antebellum’s tour.Β  Whether I would have tried him out otherwise, I’m not sure. I am certainly not going to rave about how his debut album is a must-hear or the best thing […]

Dustin Lynch – Current Mood (2017)

🌟🌟   I loved Dustin Lynch’s 2014 album Where It’s At.Β  It followed the very friendly mix of country, rock and radio-friendly sound that Luke Bryan has perfected and I played it a lot more than his debut album, which I kind of think I liked but was hardly memorable. Current Mood starts off strongly […]
