Thunder On The Mountain – Day 2 – Through The Eyes Of HaleighT. After some eggs and bacon bright and early, I showered and cleaned up and was ready for day two of Thunder On The Mountain! I was really excited to try EVERYTHING that Thunder had to offer, but unfortunately, because of the storms the previous week, there was no Ferris wheel. However the water-slide was set up and ready to go. I gave it some good thought and decided it just wasn’t hot enough for me to cross that off of my TOTM bucket list (there’s always next year). The Music. The music started early again and I made my way throughout the grounds to catch as many shows as I could. I started out with Woodshed at the George’s Majestic Backwoods Stage. I then split my time between Kelly Road, Kevin Fowler and Aaron Watson. I caught the first half of Kristen Kelly and the last half of Reckless Kelly. I really enjoyed RK’s set, especially because Cody Canada joined the guys. It’s always fun to see a long friendship like those guys have, play out on stage. Easton Corbin really impressed me. I loved his latest album and it was fun to see some of those songs live. After participating in a press conference earlier in the day for Sunny Ledford, I had to catch his show. It was a good time…he’s fun on stage and honestly does not care what anyone thinks of him. I must also add that the crowd for that show was interesting, but fun. After Sunny, I had a quick dinner and caught the second half of Montgomery Gentry. The night really got started when Luke Bryan hit the stage, I was with all my friends and we danced and danced while Luke shook his stuff on stage. Anyone who has ever been to one of his shows knows the crazy amount of energy he has and how contagious it can be! After Luke a small group of us decided to head to the Hideout, which was the dance club/karaoke part of TOTM. It was fun to watch people, but sadly for us we didn’t get to get on stage. The list of people wanting to sing was extremely long and if I would have known I would have signed up earlier in the day…because I’m all about some karaoke! For the second night in a row, I went to bed in the early hours of the morning. But again, I was up bright and early for the final day of TOTM!
Kristen Kelly Is A Country Music Diva In Her Video for He Loves To Make Me Cry! When I hear Kristen Kelly‘s single “He Loves To Make Me Cry,” I am simply in awe of just how powerful her voice and talent really are! If ever there was one, Kelly has some real potential to be a “country music diva,” and I mean that in the most positive way possible. I’m talking a talented to the core, strong and confident kind of woman here, and that is just what Kristen offers up in this song and the new video that was recently released! The video keeps things simple with Kelly dressed beautifully in a tasteful but stunning floor length, slim gown on stage with an old school mic and all eyes on her. The audience is kept in profile, and except for a few complimentary scenes of a couple slow dancing, the focus is entirely on Kristin and her show stopping vocals. Great song. Great talent. Great video. See for yourself below, and be sure to keep up Kristen on Twitter! She is currently on the road playing shows with Rascal Flatts. You can find her EP on iTunes.
