I grew up in a very musical family, so I love hearing new music and falling back on oldies. Music has a way of bringing you to a certain time in your life. Certain songs bring back tears of joy but also remind me of painful times and the healing. I have songs that remind me of people and the memories made.
Here are some of my favorite artists (who are still living) that are always a joy for me to listen to:
I love this man. He has a voice like butter. It is so sweet and just the perfect tone. I love singer song writers, and he is the cream of the crop for me. (I could honestly do a whole post about all my favorite singer song writers…) I also love that Tyrone stays true to his family and faith even amidst his fame. Tom and I were featured on his Facebook page once, and I have actually had a real conversation with him one of the times I saw him in Iowa. One of his songs, our friend sang at our wedding. I have seen him 5 times now, and every time it is so worth it. This is my go to music if I need to feel anything. Do yourself a favor and buy all of his albums.
He has an old soul feel to him, very Frank Sinatra-esque, which I love. His songs always make me want to be a competitive ballroom dancer. I just love his rich tones. Yummy music! I would love to see him live.
She has got the best tunes that are perfect for belting it out in the car or in the shower. (Or when you are 9 singing hysterically “All By Myself” when you are told to clean the basement…this may or may not be based on a true story.) She was also the first cassette tape that I owned.
I grew up listening to Jimmy since he is my dad’s favorite artist. My dad and I danced to one of his songs for our father/daughter dance. They are just great songs to dance to and make you feel like you are just living it up. Most have a party on the beach vibe. Every day I wish I was partying on a beach. I sing “Cheeseburger in Paradise” to George all the time. It’s amazing my brother and I didn’t didn’t ask more questions about some of the lyrics…
I mean what girl who grew up in the 90s doesn’t love Justin Timberlake? From his N’SYNC days to now his solo career, I love it all. Also our sons are very close in age, which means PLAYDATE? One could dream. Anyway, he is a dreamboat who can act, sing, and dance. But I mostly love him for his singing. I also need to see him live…someone please make that happen. I can’t wait to hear this song on the radio!
I have so many others! But these are my top 5 today.
