Hot Apple Pie. Doesn’t that just make your mouth water? A little vanilla ice cream on top for me please! Well, sorry I’m talking about the band, not the actual pie. Although, lead singer Brady Seals is quite yummy if you ask me. Apparently, they have been around for a while. So why in the heck did I just find out about them? Ok, I guess I didn’t just find out about them. I was introduced to them right after Christmas when my friend Amy was visiting. She popped them into the cd player one day. I wasn’t completely impressed with them right away, but hubby actually liked them which is very unusual considering he hates country music. For me they were just kind of okay, but had some catchy tunes.
Well, since then I’ve been carrying the cd around in the car with me and I have become totally hooked. I can sing every word of “Easy Does It” by heart although you wouldn’t want to hear it because it’s slightly out of my range in a couple spots. Zach hears it quite frequently though as it has become one of his favorite lullabyes. Then of course there is “The Good Life” which is constantly stuck in my head so I go around singing all day “I wanna ride the waves, tan my skin, dance with a girl I’ll never see again, and get tattooed.” In a weird way it reminds me of my trips to Florida with Amy. What I wouldn’t give for another one of those now! Pretty much every song on the cd has been my favorite at some point in the last few weeks.
I’ve been meaning to look the band up online for quite a while now but just finally got the chance today (once again that whole lack of time issue comes in). So, as I was reading their bio I was amazed to discover that each member has quite a background in music. I was delighted to find that Brady Seals was once part of Little Texas and co-wrote some of my all-time favorites “God Blessed Texas” and “What Might Have Been”. The others have been involved with some equally talented musicians and bands. If you pooled them all together the list is actually quite impressive. I guess that is why it works though. They are all very talented at what they do.
My point is, if you haven’t heard them, or even heard of them, you should check them out. Even if you aren’t a big fan of country music (like my hubby) there may be something there that sparks your interest. If you’re real lucky, they’ll get stuck in your head like they are in mine.
Now, where’s that slice of apple pie I asked for?
