If you're like me, when you're bored, procrastinating, or there's nothing good on TV to watch, you find yourself surfing YouTube for music videos. I love how music videos bring your favorite songs to life and sometimes gives them a whole new meaning. It's hard to narrow it down to five favorites, so these are just five of my favorites from 2018 so far.
Brandi Carlile - The Joke
In case you haven't heard, our very own The Secret Sisters are on the road with Brandi Carlile this summer. Check out this video for her single, The Joke. Brandi's vocals are stellar in this song dedicated to those who are feeling unloved and misunderstood. This song reminds me of her smash hit, The Story. Make sure to visit The Secret Sisters' website for a list of tour dates with Brandi and to purchase tickets here.
Kacey Musgraves - Space Cowboy
I have had Kacey Musgraves' new album, Golden Hour, on repeat since it came out in March. One of my favorite tracks is one of her lead singles, Space Cowboy. Kacey's songwriting never disappoints!
Man of the Woods - Justin Timberlake
How can you not be excited about a new JT album? I am loving Justin's new sound on his album Man of the Woods, and love this fun video for the title track.
Miranda Lambert - Tin Man
I love Miranda's Lambert's soft and raw voice, and it shines in this beautiful, heartbreaking song. I think Miranda is at her best when it's just her, a guitar, and her lyrics, like in her music video from the ACM Awards.
Carrie Underwood - Cry Pretty
Of course, I can't leave Carrie out of any of my favorites lists. I was so excited when I saw her announcement for a new single, and new album coming this fall. After waiting three years for new music, Carrie does not disappoint with her amazing vocals and heartfelt lyrics. And wow, this song is one killer vocal workout!
