Florida Georgia Line Captures Their First No. 1 Spot On Billboard 200

October 23rd, 2014 8:33am EDT
Florida Georgia Line Captures Their First No. 1 Spot On Billboar
For a third week, country rules the top spot of the Billboard 200. Last week it was Jason Aldean’s Old Boots, New Dirt (who settles for #2 this week). This week’s honors go to Florida Georgia Line who sells a strong 197,000 copies of Anything Goes. Anything Goes is the sole album to sell more than 100,000 copies this week and outpaced the second place album by more than 100,000 copies. Guess Tyler and Brian have something to celebrate – as if they weren’t celebrating already.

Even though the numbers continue to stink, there are plenty of new albums being dropped by many notable artis...

Florida Georgia Line Leads Albums To Check Out: This Week In Music

October 14th, 2014 9:48am EDT
2014 Billboard Music Awards - Arrivals MGM Grand Garden Arena, M
October continues to be the ideal month for musicians to drop their albums – well at least from their perspective. This week’s crop of releases, dropping Tuesday, October 14, don’t quite have the ‘oomph’ of the last couple of weeks, but there’s still at least a potential surefire hit. Normally, U2 would be a sure bet, but you have to question how much an album issued for free will sell. Florida Georgia Line seems to be the favorites this week.

1) Florida Georgia Line, Anything Goes (Republic Nashville)

With bro-country a popular trend, Florida Georgia Line’s sophomore album Anything...

10 Deceptively Written Songs

10 Deceptively Written Songs
Some songs just aren’t intended for literal interpretation. Some of the best-written songs are actually best interpreted figuratively. The 10 songs gracing this list are written cleverly, in a deceptive fashion. In other words, the lyrics (and sometimes title) transcend what’s literally being said. These 10 aren’t ‘classic’ examples – all are contemporary – but, the figurative, deceptiveness is definitely notable.

1) Hozier, “Take Me To Church" (Hozier, 2014)

Sure, the biblical book Song of Solomon is something else, but it’s highly doubtful that Hozier’s “Take Me To ...
