5 Underrated Country Artists You Need to Know
Kaitlyn H. Evans

I made this list short, so unlike all those times your friend told you to listen to a song or band and you didn't, maybe this time, one of these artists will jump out at you and you won't ignore it. Thank me later.

1. Colter Wall

Colter's music is reminiscent of the old greats in country music. He reigns from Canada and is unlike anything you've heard in this day and time. He has a deep voice and does guitar pickin' a solid. His debut self titled album, Colter Wall, came out in May of this year.

3 songs you should listen to: "Sleeping on the Blacktop", "Kate McCannon", "The Devil Wears a Suit and Tie"

2. Tyler Childers

Tyler has a distinct backwoods Appalachia sound to his music. He is about as down-home and country as it gets. If you're sick of the BS country music is throwing at you, I highly recommend checking him out. He has a residency at The Basement in Nashville and has been selling out shows left and right. He came out with his debut album Purgatory in August of this year.

3 songs you should listen to: "Nose on the Grindstone", "Whitehouse Road", "Honky Tonk Flame"

3 songs you should listen to: "Mud", "Early Morning Shakes", "Broken Window Serenade"

4. Blackberry Smoke

Blackberry Smoke are one of the more mainstream and true southern rock bands out there. They've been at it for about 20 years and have an especially have a large following in the U.K. Lead singer, Charlie Starr, is an amazing guitar player and has a lot of knowledge about them. Also, he has the cutest little boy named Canaan.

3 songs you should listen to: "Like An Arrow", "What Comes Naturally", "One Horse Town"

5. Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit

I know I'm crazy, but I didn't really get into Jason Isbell until this year. He has impeccable writing skills and I recommend checking him and his band out on their episode of NPR's Tiny Desk concert series. He has a true southern sound and you'll feel like you're in the stories he writes.

3 songs you should listen to:

"Molotov", "White Man's World", "Cumberland Gap"

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
