Music Monday: “The Story” by Brandi Carlile

Coffee, whiskey, and fishing poles. That’s really all you need in life.” ~ Brandi Carlile

Until yesterday morning when I heard this quote on the Current, what I knew about Brandi Carlile was her name… and that just vaguely.

Women country singers not named Emmy Lou, Jessie, Tammy, or Dolly quickly bore me. Female pop-divas leave me completely flat. I leave the whole contemporary-female-pop-country-genre/pop-diva stuff in the more than capable hands of my youngest daughter.

But how can someone who can summarize life as perfectly as the above quote NOT become my next new favorite artist.

Its official… for the next little while I am going to be listening to a singer named Brandi!

On Easter Monday.. I really can’t think of any better words to live by.
