Jill Scott Top 10 Countdown and New Music

When we think of Women’s History Month we should be think of the strength that all women personify. I must say that Jill Scott is one hell of an example. The way that she writes a love song is comparable to no one else. Her songs take you on a ride that frankly you don’t want to get off of. Don’t believe me check out her VH1 Storytellers special.

She has recently put out new music and an anticipated album is sure to follow. The video for her new single, “You Don’t Know” is below.

She is a mother, singer, writer, actress, poet, and above all she is a poster child for Women’s History Month.

Some songs that did not make the top 10:

My Love 


Lovely Day 


Shame 


Hear My Call 


Crown Royal 


Sometimes I Wonder 


The Fact Is (I Need You) 


Gimme

Black History Month Presents: Lionel Richie & Commodores Top 10

Anyone who knows me knows that my favorite singer/performer of all-time is Lionel Richie. His music is timeless and incomparable. As a performer Richie doesn’t need dancers and all of the lights. All he needs is that voice and a piano.

As a young man, the world was introduced to Lionel Richie when he was the lead singer of the Commodores and in the early 80’s he decided to go solo and create many more hits.

Lionel’s music is so well liked, he decided to “countrify” his hits and made some of them better on the Tuskegee album. On the album, Richie teamed up with a few of country’s best artists and remade 13 of his and the Commodores’ hits.

Typically, I do a top 10 countdown and leave it at that, but because there are so many hits I have decided to do a top 10 for both The Commodores and Lionel Richie.

A few that didn’t make either list:

Ballerina Girl


Truly


Just For You


I Call It Love

Rascal Flatts Top 10

One thing Rascal Flatts is not is a boy band so don’t compare them to *NSYNC or the Backstreet Boys. The trio of Joe Don, Jay, and Gary sold over 22.5 million album and more than 28 million digital downloads. They’ve had 15 #1 singles, which led to their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a membership into the Grand Ole Opry. Gary LeVox, lead singer, has a voice that is completely unique. This is one of my favorite groups because their music is soulful and quite meaningful.

I must admit I enjoy being a Flatthead.

Please enjoy the Top 10 song made by Rascal Flatts.

10. Rewind


9. Banjo


8. Dancing on the Ceiling with Lionel Richie


7. Fast Cars and Freedom


6. Easy Featuring Natasha Bedingfield

Country Music Star Darius Rucker receives honor

Darius Rucker has come a long way from singing his University of South Carolina friends. Rucker began singing as the lead vocalist of the band Hootie and the Blowfish in 1986. His deep, soulful voice lead the band to a couple of Grammy awards. Also, the band’s first album, Cracked Rear View, went 16X platinum. Hootie and the Blowfish had hits like, “Let Her Cry”, “Hold My Hand”, and “Only Wanna Be With You”. The band decided in 2008 to take a hiatus so that Rucker could pursue a solo career.

Rucker’s first album, Learn to Live, charted three number one hits. They were “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It”, “Alright”, and “It Won’t Be like This For Long”. His second album didn’t fail. Actually, it was certified gold. But his third album, True Believers may have been his best one yet. It featured a remake of Bob Dylan’s “Wagon Wheel”. The song went 3X platinum, won a Grammy, and never ceases to get old.

He later went on to record a Christmas album, Home for the Holidays, which is in stores now.

This South Carolina Gamecock fan continues to break down barriers and make history.

  • 2nd African- American with a #1 country song
  • Only African- American to win the CMA New Artist of the Year
  • Became a Grand Ole Opry Member in 2012

It is honor give Darius Rucker this week’s Young Veteran award. Between you and me, I don’t think it’s possible for this artist to stop making great music.

These are the Top 10 Darius Rucker songs.

10. Homegrown Honey

9. True Believers

8. It Won’t Be Like This For Long

7. Stuck On You Duet with Lionel Richie
