I haven't watched "American Idol" as much this year as I have in past years. But, I've watched it enough to make a prediction on who will be crowned as the next 'American Idol' tonight. My prediction, in a land slide is....
OK, so there have been 2 albums within the last year that I have raved about: Eric Church's "Chief" and Jake Owen's "Barefoot Blue Jean Night." Well, we can safely add another album to my obsession: Lee Brice's "Hard 2 Love."
I really like singing competition shows. I've watched 'American Idol' from the beginning and since then, I've given 'X-Factor' and 'The Voice' a chance. I like them both, but not as much as 'American Idol.' The biggest reason for this? It's gotta be the host. Ryan Seacrest is the man. Like him or not, he is the best host of the mentioned shows, period.
I realize that a majority of my blog posts are about Taylor Swift, but look at her.... Can you blame me? Anyway, the latest rumor is that Olivia Newton John says Taylor should play Sandra D in the remake of 'Grease,' if it is in fact re-made. I have many mixed emotions about this. I love Taylor and the original 'Grease', but I don't know how I feel about all of these remakes of classics. Hollywood re-made 'Footloose', which I love, and I still haven't seen that. And Julianne Hough is in that. Side note: I love Julianne Hough. But, if 'Grease' is remade and Taylor plays the leading lady, I just assume I'm going to be asked to play Danny Zuko, her love interest. While I ponder these thoughts, what do I do? I watch one of my favorite scenes from the movie and one of my favorite videos from Taylor.
I'm a huge Cardinals fan and a huge fan of watching awkward situations unfold. Cardinal 3rd baseman David Freese gets hit on by a reporter for 3 minutes. And yes, this is a real interview, that played on a local news station in St. Louis..... Somehow. Ridiculous.
I've always been pretty ridiculous, so when I saw the video for the Warrior Dash, it looked ridiculous enough to peak my interest. My brothers and I decided in February that we wanted to compete in the race and as of yesterday, in North Texas, we completed our first ever Warrior Dash! Warrior Dash, in short, is about a 3 mile race that involves crawling through mud, climbing over walls, jumping over fires and more. Yeah, like a said, ridiculous. Although training for the event should be a top priority, I put more emphasis on my costume (pictured below). Yes, people dress up in ridiculous costumes to run the race, so of course, I had to jump on that. America!!! If what I have written makes you have some interest in this race, you really should check it out. They do great work with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and it's a ton of fun!
I talk about it openly, I'm a huge Taylor Swift fan. It seems like every time she wins a big award, like she did last night with her Entertainer of the Year award at the ACMs, numerous people come out and say she doesn't deserve it. I'm here to tell you that she does.
The ACM Awards are on CBS this Sunday at 7pm. Here are my predictions for who I think will win in each category. Side note: I'm usually wrong on a majority of them. My picks are in bold and are underlined.
Forget the fact that this was opening weekend for the "Hunger Games," the fact that I saw any movie in theater at any point is unbelievable. There's no way I've seen more than 2 movies in theater within the last year and I only say that many, because I know my memory and assume there is a movie or 2 that I can't remember seeing.
It's a well know fact that I like a majority of chick flicks. My theory is that all men do, some are just afraid to admit it. I embrace it. So, some genius decided to put a Lady Antebellum song with clips from 2 classic chick flicks. Enjoy, I know I did.... and I'm not afraid to admit it.
