Top Ten Country Songs in November

No matter what anyone says, I love country music. The old, the new. It possesses emotion that no other genre displays. The lyrics in country music speak to the heart. Many memes circulate the internet about how AWFUL country music is: like this one.

I have never understood the widespread opposition to the genre. I grew up in a house where all music genres were played, but country is by far my favorite. The soul hits me hard.

For November of 2016, some amazing songs have become popular. I am using the Top 40 list mentioned as the basis for information on the top 40 songs in country music right now. If you would like to look at the whole list, please use the link. I will only be mentioning some of the songs on the list, including the top ten.

10. Luke Bryan, "Move"

Luke Bryan is one of my favorite country artists right now. This song is more of the stereotypical country that people like to pick fun at. Jeans. Trunks. Boots. Blondes. It's the typical country dream. It's sexy and fun! Luke Bryan has the vibe to kill this song. He is always down to use his hips and drive a crowd crazy. His voice adds a sexual tone to the music which can drive you into addiction.

9. Cole Swindell, "Middle of a Memory"

This song is a love song, and a great one at that. It is about country music, dancing, and the first move. I love listening to this song, even though I cannot say I am a Swindell fan. The lyrics are beautiful and simple. It is a song that paints a picture of a beautiful night of two people falling for each other. The song captures the moment when you are falling and the other person walks away. Although the undertone is sad, the song in itself is beautiful.

8. Thomas Rhett, "Star of the Show"

Thomas Rhett has put out some great singles lately. From "Die a Happy Man" to "Vacation," I have been in love with his music. Another love song, Rhett talks about how a girl is beautiful, and does not realize it. Although this may sound familar to "What Makes You Beautiful" (One Direction) in concept, the vibe is very much country. It is a great pick-me-up tune for a lady who is feeling down.

Plus, he is in a goal relationship!

7. Artists of Then, Now, & Forever, "Forever Country"

I stumbled across this song on Facebook and oh my gosh. This is THE country song of the year for sure. It is the highlight of artists from George Straight to Luke Bryan and Dolly Parton to Carrie Underwood. The song was made in celebration of 50 years of the CMA awards and features 30 winning CMA artists. This is a song that you need to look up if you have not heard it.

6. Carrie Underwood, "Dirty Laundry"

Carrie Underwood is one of my spirit animals. Her music is very empowering as it draws in badass women.This song about finding a guys shirt as evidence that he was cheating. It is a powerful song. A song to sing at the top of your lungs. And that is what Carrie Underwood is good at. She captures the female spirit in her music, and I love it.

5. Brett Young, "Sleep Without You"

This is another cute love song. Although I do not know much about Brett Young, I do know that this is a good song. The song is about how he cannot sleep without his girl. He wants her to go out and have a good time, but he knows that he isn't going to be comfortable in bed without his girl next to him. If a guy told me this, it would be very well received as a romantic compliment.

4. Miranda Lambert, "Vice"

This is another bad ass woman with a great song. For a while, this was one of the only songs that I listened to. Many people have interpreted the lyrics differently, however the truth is that this is an honest melody. Springing out of her divorce with Blake Shelton, it is hard to pinpoint exactly what she wanted to say. But the song is great.

3. Kenny Chesney (Pink), "Setting the World on Fire"

I love this song to just jam with. It is about having fun and enjoying a night in love. Kenny Chesney enjoys talking about having a good time and being free. This is what this song encapsules, having fun.

2. Florida Georgia Line (Tim McGraw), "May We All"

I am not very familiar with this song, but it sounds good!

1. Keith Urban, "Blue Ain't Your Color"

This is a very emotional song. It is about seeing someone who is sad and wanting to brighten their life. It is a beautiful melody that can bring an easy smile to your face.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
