Have You Heard Luke Combs' Debut Album?
The Country Scene

Although Luke Combs has had two EPs before releasing his third, This One's For You, in November 2015, his debut album of the same name released this year. In 2014, he released his EPs The Way She Rides and Can I Get an Outlaw. His first single, Hurricane, ahead of the EP's release in November 2015, and almost a year later the official music video was released on Youtube.

In June 2017, he released his first album with top singles, Hurricane, When it Rains it Pours, and This One's For You among many catchy and emotional tunes.

I am surprised that this is his FIRST album because I think he hit the nail on the head with these songs! Let me tell you how five of his songs affect me in different ways, whether it be emotions running high or singing at the top of my lungs while I dance. With 12 possible choices, how is it so easy to pick only five to love? It is not because his music is so catchy, fun, and honest!

1. One Number Away

Oh, that ache of missing someone that makes you see their face in everyone you pass on the sidewalk. This song plays out an emotional story about two people that broke up. Luke shows that even if you are the one that walks away, it can hurt just as back as getting left. Saying, "I was wrong, you are what I want. I am one number away, so will you answer?"

If you're anything like me. You just might be doing whatever it takes to drown out the noise. But I just wanna hear your voice.

2. Hurricane

Have you ever had someone stuck in your head then they walk through the door? This is what this song is about and it is epic. A love that can't be dissolved and hits like a hurricane. I think this is a love song that isn't typical, but gets what it is like to deeply love someone.

Check out the official music video on Youtube.

The moon went hiding. Stars quit shining. Rain was dropping. Thunder 'n' lighting. You wrecked my whole world when you came and hit me like a hurricane.

3. This One's For You

I love the lyrics in this song, it is like a letter to the ones that stood by him all a long. Remember to thank everyone, even if it is through a catchy melody.

I told you all that I'd write you a song. Pour my heart into the melody, to keep you singing along. This might not be the right time, these might not be the right lines to prove. For saying what I'm trying to, but this one's for you.

4. Honky Tonk Highway

I love this song because it mentions things through Alabama. Plus it has a catchy tune that makes you want to dance.

We're gonna kick it off in Birmingham. Headlights, wide lines. Flying down 65. Tryna catch a few hours sleep. Tomorrow comes, show time. That's when I know I'm living that neon dream.

5. Don't Tempt Me

A party song is what I consider this one. Don't ever underestimate anyone's ability to have fun, they just might surprise you!

At 3AM I'm still hanging tough. My buddy's passed out in the bed of my truck. And I can't wait 'til he wakes up and sees the pictures on his phone.

This One's For You is available on Spotify, go check it out! You won't regret it!

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
