Music Monday : Ryan Adams

ra2raLast week Ryan Adams released his cover album of Taylor Swift’s 1989. The anticipation I’ve had over this album is almost ridiculous. I don’t listen to music as much as I used to, but I actively listen to both Ryan Adams and Taylor Swift. How could a mashup between these two go wrong? As expected, it’s an undeniable hit! I mean, just take a listen!

Ryan Adams has not only been one of my favorite musicians, but also a long time celebrity boyfriend. Worn-in jean jacket + dirty hair? I’m into it. I’ve been a fan since early high school, especially of his sad moody albums. I’ve mentioned this on my blog before, but for the entire year of 2009 the only CD I had in my car was Heartbreaker. If Ryan Adams has just entered your radar due to 1989, I highly suggest you listen to some of his other music! You’ll love it! 😉
Here are some of my favorites:

Oh My Sweet Carolina is not only a favorite Ryan Adams song, it’s a favorite life song. It’s so perfect. This is a live version with Jenny Lewis. In the original recording Emmylou Harris sang the female part.

What music are you currently loving? Have you been listening to Ryan Adams’ cover of Taylor Swift’s 1989?


This past week has been heavy for me. Sometimes it can just be a little exhausting to listen to (or read) conversations and arguments about race, religion, politics, rights, legitimacy of ice bucket challenges, etc. over and over again. While all of those are important and should be talked about, I’m going to take a break and listen to my new jam Shake it Off by T-Swift because… #weekend!!!

Have a good weekend!
