THE VOICE

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

I can officially move on into summer now that THE VOICE has ended with a big fat TEAM CHRISTINA VICTORY!! Can I say that it’s about time a lady won this gig? Way to go, chicks!

Girl power, lady!!

Although, I knew it would end this way the moment this little Curly Sue dynamo stepped up to the microphone during the blind auditions! Wowzer wowzy!

I called it. I knew Alisan Porter would walk away the winner! And I also called Adam Wakefield as being there with her. Just call me a talent scout, I deserve it. I’ve called the winners for the last few seasons…I AM THAT DANG GOOD, Y’ALL!

Alisan’s story is inspirational as are most of The Voice winners. She was a child star who played the cute kid in the movie Curly Sue. She made some bad choices, ended up with an alcohol dependency….grew up, got married, had some babies and then realized she hadn’t really chased down her true dream – to sing!

Congrats to Alisan because sister can sing and she deserved to win last night!

The night was full of amazing performances with exciting artists but the love I have for THIS LADY —>

……..ALISON KRAUSS is borderline bonkers (me not her)! She performed with Adam Wakefield and I could’ve listened to them all night long!

My hubby actually took me to see her in concert when we lived in Louisville several years ago. (Best gift ever) And, he has never minded how loud my girls and I play her music. Which is pretty loud since that lady can croon!

Her voice, her fiddle….her pretty long hair. Okay, so I love her. I’m not driving by her house or anything. It’s a fan kind of love and that’s that. I have my limits.

So, there’s my re-cap of The Voice finale. It was perfect! I’m free on Monday & Tuesday nights now if anyone wants to do anything fun! Haha!

Happy Wednesday <3

She’s my all-time favorite….

If you’ve never heard of Alison Krauss…..let me intoduce her to you. I’ve been listening to her for…..many years. She’s probably one of the most talented musicians in the world. Her gift is not only having the voice of an angel, this beautiful lady can play multiple instruments….very well. I have yet to hear a single Alison Krauss song that I didn’t love! She’s my favorite!

Back in 2000, hubby bought tickets to see her in Louisville as a gift to me. It was certainly one of the best presents ever. (Thank you babe) My kids love listening to her as much as I do. It warms my heart that my girl (Ally) would want to borrow my AK cd’s to listen to over and over.

You should hear us as we get ready to go in the mornings…..we sound like Alison Krauss’ backup singers. Her voice gets us ready to face our long days. (Thank you AK)! Do you think we could join your band?

I hope to see her in concert again…..she’s more than worth it! Until then, I’ll keep my ipod filled with her sweet music!
