My Favorite Band Is Getting Back Together

My Favorite Band Is Getting Back Together

Y'all... It's happening. My favorite back is getting back together and I cannot stay calm!

If you don't know me already, I have been obsessed with Country music for as long as I can remember, and with that obviously comes your favorite singers and bands.

Well my favorite country band has been on separate paths for what it seems like entirety, but it’s only really been about the last 6 years. It has been torture, as you could imagine but I understand their desire to do their own thing since they probably needed to evolve themselves as an individual instead of as a duo. Well, a few weeks ago, at the Country Music Awards, the duo Sugarland united and presented at the awards, un-announced if I may add (still a little salty about that one). They then ended up playing a few songs after the show and my heart just couldn't take it. My two favorite people back on one stage made me go through all the emotions. I mean, I’m sure my 11-year-old self was jumping for joy. But their actions also made me tweet them like crazy. I needed answers: Why didn't you tell us? How did we not know? What does this mean? What can we expect? How long have you been hiding this? Do I need to set up a GoFundMe page to collect donations for VIP tickets?

I fondly remember this group on my television screen singing one of their singles and ever since, I was just obsessed and wanted to know everything about them. I have been following Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush for 10 years now and every second has been worth it. To make matters seem ever more obsessive, I have their pre-Sugarland day music as well, so I think that puts me in a different ball-game, right? Anyway, I have seen them perform in a few different west-coast cities and I have met a few other fans along the way because of them. I guess at this point they are a part of my life and history as a person.

Their music is something I have always ran to when I was having a bad day or even a good day. It was such a reliable source to go to for anything and it still sometimes is. I think it's truly important that everyone has something that they are able to go to for a pick me up, guidance, and encouragement. More times than not, music or art has become everyone's guilty pleasure and I think it's special that we are all connected in that way. Throughout history is seems like no matter the circumstances may be, music has connected a community into something strong than it was before and I admire that. With this group that I admire so much, they have connected with so many people that it is deeply inspiring.

Nonetheless, I can't wait to purchase another one of their albums, a few more concert tickets, and a few more merchandise items to keep for years to come. From beginning to end, I will be here to support this duo; I mean I have nothing else to do really... So, Jennifer and Kristian, I am so excited for this new chapter of Sugarland and I can't wait to be apart of this crazy ride.

9 Eligible Princes You Need To Know About Now That Prince Harry Is Off The Market

You too could have a Meghan Markle fairytale

Prince Harry's royal wedding is officially over and there won't be another British royal wedding for quite some time now, as Prince George is way too young to start thinking about that. Fortunately, there are plenty of other countries with plenty of other princes that are still eligible bachelors at the moment. Lucky for you, I did my research and compiled a list of all the eligible princes you need to know about know that Prince Harry has tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

1. Prince Louis of Luxembourg (31)

Prince Louis is the third son of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg. He has recently become a bachelor again after his separation with his wife of 10 years, Princess Tessy.

Fun Fact: He graduated from Richmond, The American International University of London with a BA in Communications. He can also speak Luxembourgish (the fact that's even a language is fun fact by itself), French, German, and English fluently.

2. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg (26)

Prince Sebastien is the youngest child of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg, so if you marry him, you'll probably never actually be queen because he's pretty far removed from the throne. However, he's relatively young and single, so best of luck.

Fun Fact: For some bizarre reason, this prince actually went to college in Ohio. He played rugby and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2015. Now, he is back in his home country and is an officer in the Luxembourg Army.

3. Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark (34)

You read that correctly, Prince Phillipos is the prince of not one, but two countries. He is the youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece and Denmark. Unfortunately, Greece abolished their monarchy, so he's a prince in name only there.

Fun Fact: Like Prince Sebastien, Prince Phillipos also went to college in the United States. He earned his B.A. in foreign relations from Georgetown University in 2008. Fortunately, for us American girls, he is actually still living in the US and he works in New York City as an analyst at Ortelius Capital.

4. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis (34)

Ever heard of Thurn and Taxis? No? Me neither. Anyways, Prince Albert is from the House of Thurn and Taxis, which is essentially a very old German aristocratic family. He is the son of Prince Johannes XI of Thurn and Taxis and Countess Gloria of Schonburg Glauchau. His family is well known for their breweries and castles, so unless you're gluten-free, you can't really complain.

Fun Fact: He's not just a prince. He's also a racecar driver and 10 years ago he was ranked 11th on Forbes Magazine's List of The 20 Hottest Young Royals.

5. Prince Mateen of Brunei (26)

Prince Mateen is basically like all the guys you already know, except he's royalty. He's the prince of Brunei, which is a small country on the island of Borneo, south of Vietnam. He is one of the five sons of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and he also has seven sisters. Maybe that's a little different than the guys you know, but one thing he takes very seriously, just like most frat guys, is his Instagram.

Fun Fact: Mateen enjoys playing polo, flying in his private plane, cuddling cute wild animals, and keeping up his Insta game with 890k followers. You can follow him @tmski.

6. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (35)

Sheikh Hamdan also has a killer Instagram with 6.3 million followers. Anyways, Sheikh Hamdan is the billionaire crown prince of Dubai and the second son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and essentially the king of Dubai (Emir). He's actually next in line for the throne because his older brother died in 2015.

Fun Fact: Hamdan's hobbies include skydiving, zip lining, and diving, just to name a few, so if you're an adrenaline junkie, Sheikh Hamdan is the prince for you.

7. Prince Hussein of Jordan (23)

Prince Hussain is the son of the extremely beautiful, Queen Rania and Abdullah II of Jordan and next in line for the Jordanian throne. At 23, he's already a second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces and he was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council Meeting

Fun Fact: Like Prince Phillippos, Prince Hussain also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. Also, like Prince Mateen and Prince Hamdan, he's Insta famous with 1.3 million followers and you can follow him @alhusseinjo.

8. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark (19)

Like Prince Phillipos, Prince Constantine-Alexios also has two countries. Lucky for us though, he is also living in the US right now attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. (like pretty much every other prince, amirite?) He is the oldest son of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.

Fun Fact: He's Prince William's godson, so that's pretty neat. However, if that wasn't cool enough, you might like to know that this Greek/Danish prince was actually born in New York. Oh yeah, you can also follow him on Instagram @alexiosgreece where he has 88.7k followers.

9. Prince Joachim of Belgium (26)

Prince Joachim of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este is the third child of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium. Although he bears the title, "Prince of Belgium," he is also Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and Prince of Modena. Unfortunately, he'll probably never actually be king in any of these countries as he is ninth in line to the Belgian throne.

Fun Fact: Prince Joachim has degrees in economics, management, and finance, but he decided to join the Nautical School in Brugge after completing college and is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.

Hope is not lost for all you girls dreaming of finding a Prince Charming that's literally a prince. After reviewing the data, my best advice is to transfer to Georgetown where princes are basically around every corner.

I have watched Shane Dawson for some time, although, not religiously, I knew he was a Youtube Icon. He's been around for as long as I can remember. It wasn't until last year that I watched one of his videos and truly fell in love with his personality and his humor. I wish the best for him because he is such a wonderful and real person.

Someone I could relate to, someone who would make me happy, even in the worst of times. His friendships with others are beautiful and I love that he is finding happiness in his life. No one deserves it more than he does. I honestly love you, Shane Dawson.
