This is Important: Boom Clap

I know it’s a little redundant to call my blog “this is important*” and to use it for the name of a post, but some things just really are important, you guys!

Like this, Lennon & Maisy’s cover of Boom Clap.

Such talented girls!  They posted this video this week– how timely, as I was just obsessing over them since Nashville returned this week as well!  I promptly bought the single on iTunes.

Do you love this as much as I do?

 

 

*Okay, I really don’t call it that… but it’s its subtitle.  See it up there?

WCW: Connie Britton & the women of Nashville

It all started with Lennon & Maisy Stella.  I saw their Youtube cover of Call Your Girlfriend years ago and fell in love with their voices then.  I always thought they seemed sweet, and knew they were extremely talented.  When that song recently popped into my head, I looked them up and learned that they were on a show called Nashville.  Now, I’m not a country music fan, but I am a huge fan of music.  After a couple of clips of them singing, I knew I had to watch Nashville.

So I binged.  The two and a half seasons went fast.  I started watching for Lennon & Maisy, but recognized Chip Esten right away from his days on Drew Carey’s Whose Line is it Anyway?  Hayden Panettiere is not someone I’d ever been interested in, but I find her performance completely moving.  This show has totally proven her as an actress and a singer to me.  Though her character, Juliette, is hard to like, I find when Juliette’s crying, I’m crying.  And Clare Bowen?  Unbelievable voice and gorgeous!

Who I truly fell in love with almost immediately is Connie Britton.  I’d seen her in American Horror Story’s debut season, but there’s something so endearing about her accent in this!  As Rayna James, she reigns as the queen of country music, and Connie rocks it.  And hey, girl can sing!  Her mix of superstar and sweet mother to Lennon & Maisy’s characters has me loving every single minute she has on screen.  And I’m totally Rayna/Deacon!

I’ve been watching Friday Night Lights lately to soak up more of my beloved Connie, but the best news is the Nashville returns tonight!

I’ve been playing the seasons’ soundtracks non-stop, so if you like music and a little bit of drama, I highly recommend Nashville!  Who else is watching tonight?!
