Music Monday 7 | Chase Rice | Gonna Wanna Tonight

Chase Rice.  He was introduced to me a little over a year ago by a friend and I’ve been digging on him since.   Easy to listen to songs, down to earth personality, humbling upbringing, good family values.  Just a few reasons why I dig country music.  The artists are real and they never seem to forget their roots.

Chase played in Omaha at Sokol Auditorium on Friday, October 30th and you can BET I was on that ticket bandwagon in a hot second and my concert sidekick Tyree was right there with me.

Chase put on a great show, connecting with the crowd, pulling up to the stage a starstruck girl,  serenading her that made us all sick with envy and then thanking her boyfriend for not being a dick.   True words.  It was priceless.

The beers were ice cold, the music fantastic and the company great.   Chase Rice, I will be seeing you in concert again.

Gonna Wanna Tonight

If you wanna climb a ladder on a water tower
Then we’ll kick it with the stars for a couple hours
If you wanna then we’re gonna get way up high
If you wanna dip your toes where the water stops
Then we’ll let our feet hang off a fishin’ dock
If you wanna then we’re gonna have to give it a try, that’s right
.
If you wanna go away out where there ain’t nobody around
And let your long hair get to fallin’ down
And let your red lips leave their mark all over mine
.
If you wanna then we’re gonna girl
I hope you’re gonna wanna tonight
If you wanna then we’re gonna girl
I hope you’re gonna wanna all night
.
If you wanna catch a buzz and ride it til the mornin’
Let’s get two plastic cups and baby I’ll get to pourin’
I don’t really matter if it’s whiskey or wine, it’s fine
.
If you wanna go away out where there ain’t nobody around
And let your long hair get to fallin’ down
And let your red lips leave their mark all over mine
.
Fill up the night air with the radio
And put your hands wherever they wanna go
Yeah, we’re right there
Girl just close your eyes
.
If you wanna then we’re gonna girl
I hope you’re gonna wanna tonight
If you wanna then we’re gonna girl
I hope you’re gonna wanna all night
.
Gonna wanna get a little closer
Gonna wanna slide it on over
Gonna wanna
.
Gonna wanna go away out where there ain’t nobody around
And let your long hair get to fallin’ down
And let your red lips leave their mark all over mine
.
Come on
Fill up the night air with the radio
And put your hands wherever they wanna go
Yeah, we’re right there
Girl just close your eyes
.
If you wanna then we’re gonna girl
I hope you’re gonna wanna tonight
If you wanna then we’re gonna girl
I hope you’re gonna wanna all night
.
Gonna wanna get a little closer
Gonna wanna slide it on over
Gonna wanna
.
Ya gonna wanna tonight

Music Monday 4 | Rise Above This | Seether

In honor of Seether coming to Sokol Auditorium in Omaha tomorrow night, today’s Music Monday brings you:

Rise Above This by Seether

 

Rise Above This was inspired by the suicide of Seether frontman Shaun Morgan’s brother.   In 2012, Shaun was interviewed on the band’s upcoming Rise Above This Fest, which was an all day music festival centered around awareness and prevention of teen suicide.

“It sparks the kind of conversation I’m not very comfortable with,” Morgan acknowledges. “People know what (‘Rise Above This’) is about, I know what it’s about but that doesn’t mean I want to talk about it. But it’s definitely been a song people tell me has been uplifting and that they listen to in times of need. It’s helped them get through certain moments in their lives and it’s been a comfort and solace to them. That’s what it does for me, too, so the intention of the song worked. It’s definitely had a positive effect, but it can be quite heavy to deal with when you hear the stories.”

Suicide is never the answer.  Please become educated and aware.  Be the help that someone needs.

“Rise Above This”

Take the light, and darken everything around me
Call the clowns and listen closely, I’m lost without youCall your name every day when I feel so helpless
I’m fallen down but I’ll rise above this, rise above thisHate the mind, regrets are better left unspoken
For all we know, this void will grow
Everything’s in vain, distressing you though it leaves me open
Feels so right, but I’ll end this all before it gets meCall your name every day, when I feel so helpless
I’ve fallen down (fallen down), but I’ll rise above this, rise above this
Call your name everyday, when I seem so helpless
I’ve fallen down (fallen down), and I’ll rise above this, rise above this doubt

I’ll mend myself before it gets me
(I’ll mend myself before it gets me)
I’ll mend myself before it gets me
(I’ll mend myself before it gets me)

Call your name every day, when I feel so helpless
I’ve fallen down but I’ll rise above this, rise above this
Forty-eight ways to say that I’m feelin’ helpless
I’ve falling down, falling down, but I’ll rise above this, rise above this, rise above this, rise above this doubt

Beating the Soon-to-Be Winter Blues

Winter is getting ready to show her ugly face here in Nebraska soon.

As in tomorrow, soon. BLAH!!!

Knowing my window of opportunity to ride was quickly closing, I text my girl Tyree yesterday at 3pm and we were on our bikes and in the wind by exactly 4:45pm.

Impromptu ride…. And soooo worth it. Totally needed that open crisp air in my face. We rode for a while and then made a pit stop at The Rusty Nail for some dinner and a cocktail.

I chose a mushroom Swiss burger and Tyree had the burrito plate. Warm, delicious and filling. Vodka and sugar free redbull also made its way onto our tabs. Wonder how that happened…

Perfect little evening if you ask me.

This AM I woke up and whipped up an oatmeal pancake. First time making something like this and I was pretty pleased with how it turned out. I think I will continue to tweak ingredients as I go, but for the first one, I was impressed.

Oatmeal Pancake

1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup egg whites
2 Tbsp. PB2
1 Tbsp. Plain Greek yogurt
1 packet of Stevia

Mix, spread on heated griddle, lightly brown each side, soak in syrup, enjoy!

This recipe was 264 calories, 35 grams carbohydrates, 24 grams protein.
