Swindell shared to fans with the release of ‘Single Saturday Night’: “The past few months have been hard for everyone and I wanted to give the fans something fun to kick off summer.” “Single Saturday Night” is a comfort gift for fans due to his tour was postponed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Everybody knew they could find me there
Then right out of the blue, right out of nowhere
Out of nowhere
Sitting over in the corner, baby, I saw
Pretty red lips working on a White Claw
Shaking to a little ‘Shook Me All Night Long’
And I thought, man, what a beautiful sight
Ain’t a morning you don’t wake up in my shirt now
Even holding hands walking out of church now
Who’d of thought, baby, looking back that
That would be my last single Saturday night, yeah
My last single Saturday night”
The music video directed by Michael Monaco and Eder Acevedo. It was shot during COVID-19 pandemic quarantine, Swindell sit on the sofa, slept and heard the news about COVID-19 pandemic, then he was took to all over the world, after he woke up, to beach, desert, space and beyond surrounded by his friends and his band.

Learn the Lyrics: Done by Chris Janson
Posted on July 27, 2021, 5:00 am
“Done” is a song recorded by American country music singer Chris Janson. It is the second single from his 2019 album Real Friends. Janson wrote the song with Mitch Oglesby, Jamie Paulin, and Matt Roy.
According to Janson, the song was inspired by his wife, Kelly Lynn. He told the blog Taste of Country that it was his “favorite song [he’d] ever written”, and that he wrote it with the intention of making a love song that was more upbeat than other ones he had written.
“You know I won’t stop ’til it’s done
You need a man you can lean on, done
You need some faith you can hang your dreams on
Check ’em off one by one”
Mitch Oglesby, one of the song’s writers, presented Janson with the song’s concept during a songwriting session after noting that Janson had a tendency to say “done” whenever he was “serious about something”. According to Janson, he also said this phrase when he met Kelly Lynn for the first time at a bar. Janson also told Rolling Stone that he felt the song would be a “turning point” in his career as well, calling its sound a “mid-nineties down-the-middle-of-the-road hit”.

Jackson Browne Releases New Album Downhill From Everywhere
Posted on July 26, 2021, 5:00 am
Jackson Browne has just released his new album Downhill From Everywhere via Inside Recordings. In support of the record, Browne will tour the US with James Taylor starting on Thursday, July 29th at the United Center in Chicago. He will also play a run of shows in September for his “Evening With” tour, featuring Browne backed by his full band. Ticket information is available at jacksonbrowne.com.
Album single “My Cleveland Heart” was released earlier this year with a music video directed by Alissa Torvinen Kouame and featuring a cameo by Phoebe Bridgers. Browne also recently performed the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Like much of Browne’s catalog, Downhill From Everywhere is fueled by a search—for connection, for purpose, for self—but there’s a heightened sense of urgency written between the lines, a recognition of the sand slipping through the hourglass that elevates the stakes at every turn. “Time rolling away, time like a river, time like a train,” he sings. “Time like a fuse burning shorter every day.”
And while such ruminations might suggest a meditation on aging and mortality from a rock icon in his early 70s, the truth is that Browne isn’t looking in the mirror; he’s singing about us, about a world fast approaching a social, political, and environmental point of no return. Clean air, fresh water, racial equity, democracy—it’s all on the line, and nothing is assured.
Browne’s never been one to rest on his laurels, and as Downhill From Everywhere proves, he’s still pushing himself into his storied career, which includes 14 studio albums, 4 collections of live performances, and 2 “best of” compilations. Recorded with a core band that included guitarists Greg Leisz (Eric Clapton, Bill Frisell) and Val McCallum (Lucinda Williams, Sheryl Crow), bassist Bob Glaub (Linda Ronstadt, CSNY, John Fogerty), keyboardist Jeff Young (Sting, Shawn Colvin), drummer Mauricio Lewak (Sugarland, Melissa Etheridge), and longtime vocalists Chavonne Stewart and Alethea Mills, the record is a truly collaborative work, one driven by group chemistry and an openness to new sounds and ideas.
