Music Wednesday: June Playlist!

It's a new month! 
That means it is time to freshen up my playlist!

If you have Spotify check out my (always in progress) June playlist here.

Here are a few highlights!

Sadly this song is not on iTunes/Spotify... WTF ATL?! Anyway, I have mentioned this before in other posts, but All Time Low will always be one of my all time favorite bands. Recently they released a free version of their newest single, "The Reckless and the Brave", and to get it all you have to do is go here and tweet the pre-written tweet. Easy-peasy right? I fear the day when I don't appreciate the sentiment in this song. It's a young person's anthem. "Long live the reckless and the brave: I don't think I wanna be saved: My song has not been sung: Long live us"

2. Kenny Chesney- Come Over
I am a massive country fan (as most of you know) but Kenny has never really been my favorite... I think that may change with the release of his upcoming album "Welcome to the Fishbowl". I caught a sneak peak special of the album, and at first listen I liked most of the songs. "Come Over" is the quintessential country letting go song (themes reminiscent of Chris Young's "Tomorrow") and I love it!

For some reason I have not really listened to much John Legend. I mean sure I've heard "Ordinary People" and I love "Save Room" but I really haven't gone much farther in to his discography than that. Well, luckily the lack of new TV shows led me to watch duets and hear Legend sing this very sexy song. I certainly have plans to check out some more John Legend soon.

4. Justin Bieber- Die In Your Arms
His mother's day song, 'Turn To You", was a complete fail (in my humble opinion) but this most recent release from his HIGHLY anticipated album is quite good. "Die In Your Arms" has a sort of Jackson 5 vibe to the track, and I think I prefer this song to "Boyfriend" (maybe because he is actually singing and not just whisper talking). Also just yesterday Bieber has released ANOTHER new song, "All Around The World" ft Ludacris. It has the same club beat that EVERY dance/pop song has these days but it's not bad. 

5. Jon McLaughlin's New Album Promising Promises
I can't pick one song from here yet, because I don't know which one is my favorite. I do know that he has a song called A Little To Hard (And A Little Too Fast) that is NOT on the album, NOT on Spotify, and NOT iTunes, but is AMAZING. Truly as song everyone can relate to, about time moving too quickly and the way the we change as that happens.

6. Jana Kramer- I Hope It Rains
Jana's album FINALLY came out yesterday and I was so happy to see it was streaming on Spotify so I could check it out before buying. I definitely ended up buying it. One Tree Hill introduced me to Jana and ever since "Whiskey" I've been dying for her to release a full album. It's definitely cheesy, run of the mill country, and I don't anticipate her finding Carrie Underwood style success... But I enjoy it none the less. "I Hope It Rains" is one of my faves. Who hasn't had some not so nice thoughts when they see an ex moving on with someone new??

In the interest of not making this post any longer, I'll stop there. The playlist itself currently has about 20 songs on it (one of my shortest playlists!).
 As always I want to know what y'all think and what you're currently listening too! Lemme know!
