Introducing: My country music favourites

I’ve been a country music fan for ages. Unfortunately here in Switzerland it is quite difficult to keep up to date or to see some of your favourites live because not a lot of people care for this music genre around here. I personally don’t understand why since country music is so versatile. Let me introduce you a few of my favourites.

Carrie Underwood – The new Queen of Country

She won American Idol back in 2005 and her debut single “Inside your Heaven” went straight to No. 1! With that her stellar music career began. Each of her songs tell a story whether it’s a sweet revenge on a cheating husband or a homage to being to being an All-American Girl. She knows exactly what her audience wants and her live shows meant to be fantastic. But she is not only pretty and talented she is also very funny which she will prove at this years CMA’s. The country music awards are being co-hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood for the 10th time this year on Nov. 8. Have a look into two of my favourite videos below:

Sounds good? Get your copy here via Apple Music or Cede.ch.

Luke Bryan – The sexiest hip shake since Elvis

I remember that I fell in love with his music when I heard “Do I” for the first time. He went on to have huge success and his “Tailgate & Tanlines” album is one of my all time favourite. All of his songs are amazing and I love all of them which doesn’t happen quite that often. Luke is charming and very funny and his live shows are sold out within minutes. To see him and Carrie Underwood live would be one of my dreams. I love to listen to him in the car where I can sing “Muckalee Creek Water” as loud as I can. Here are two videos which I adore:

You won’t regret it if you buy one of his records. Trust me πŸ™‚ Here’s the direct link to Cede.ch or Apple Music.

Lady AntebellumΒ – The country music trio

I had the pleasure to see them live at a festival in Switzerland called Live at Sunset. It was one magic night! I’ve been a big fan ever since they released their second single “Lookin’ for a Good Time” in 2008. I followed their journey and when I heard “Need You Now” on the radio of Swiss station I couldn’t have been prouder. This song turned out to be a global hit and made them go on a small European tour – Lucky me! πŸ™‚ They don’t just write they’re own songs themselves they also lend a hand to fellow country music artists like Luke Bryan. So please listen to their wonderful music below:

Remember that song? Check out their other stuff on Apple Music or Cede.ch.

Lady A has also performed at the Country Music Festival in Gstaad which is this weekend. Have a look at their programme.Β The organisers always manage to bring famous country music stars to Switzerland and they love it here. Only last year Brett Eldredge (“Don’t Ya“) took us on his Swiss journey via Instagram. As you seeΒ I could go on and on with incredible artists who are unknown to most people in Europe but I do want to mention a few more: Sam Hunt (“Take Your Time“), Florida Georgia Line (“Cruise“), Little Big Town (“Pontoon“) and finally Chris Young (“Voices“). Make sure to give them a listen because it’s well worth it.

I will start a country music themed week with this post. I have quite a few goodies for you to come this week and if I was able to gain just one new member of the country music club it was well worth it.

  1. I would never have guessed that you’re a country music fangirl, but I love it! Country is one of my favourites when it comes to happy songs. My all time happy song is “It Happens” by Sugarland. You need to check it out, if you don’t know it already (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlzMUFr4sxs) ! It makes me so happy everytime I listen to it! It is also the perfect shower and car song, because it’s so easy to sing along! Sorry for the camouflaged Sugarland-advertisment, but I think they’re amazing!

    Did you ever think about going to a country festival in the USA? If so, please take me with you! I’d love to go someday! πŸ˜€ And have you ever been to Nashville?

    Carrie Underwood and Lady Antebellum are familiar names to me, but I couldn’t name one song, except “Need You Know” because, as you mentioned, it was played on the Swiss radio stations. I will definitely check them out. Same for Luke Bryan.

    I love it, that you’re making a country music-week. It’s a fantastic idea and it makes me so happy, because country is such a great music genre, that’s sadly not very popular here in Switzerland! 😦

    Oh, and by the way, Blake Shelton is one of my favourites. What do you think about him? And, I nearly forgot, I was once at a concert of “Kevin Costner & Modern West”! They’re amazing too! You need to check them out (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPm4Fng6IpM)! Kevin Costner has this soft voice and his aura on stage was overwhelming, I had goosebumps all over and my mum nearly fainted!

    And I think I need to stop now, before this gets out of hand ;D

    Lovely review as always, can’t wait for the next!

    1. I didn’t know either and I would have never guessed!! Oh my God! I adore that song!😍😍😍😍😍 I just didn’t mention them because they’ve been quiet for a while. Thank you for mentioning them in the comments!

      No!! It’s my dream but I never knew who to take!! Now I know.. I always wanted to go but I didn’t have a partner in crime. Have you been??

      Oh yes you need to check them out then!

      I don’t like Blake Shelton at all as well as Miranda Lambert. I cannot put my finger on it but they seem sooo phony. Uhhh I will Deffo check Kevin Costner out!

      See so much to say about country music. That’s why I kept it short lol..

      1. Yay, we both found a partner in crime now! πŸ˜€ let’s go to Nashville and to a country festival! πŸ˜€ I’ve never been, but I always wanted to go!!

        It’s an amazing song, isn’t it! Everytime I have a low I just listen to it and the world seems brighter and happier!
