15 Life Lessons We Learned From Tim McGraw Songs

Tim McGraw Life Lessons

Contrary to popular belief, Tim McGraw is more than just sex on a stick. In his 24-year career as one of country music’s greatest singers, he’s racked up three Grammys, 14 ACM Awards, 11 CMA Awards, 10 American Music Awards, 3 People’s Choice Awards, and the prestigious Katie And Winona Award For Country Music DILF of the Year (spoiler alert: he ties with Luke Bryan every year). He’s also a father of three girls, married to Faith Hill, son of the late Tug McGraw, and the hottest man to wear a cowboy hat since … ever. To pay tribute to Tim on his 47th birthday(!) we’re taking a look at 15 of his classic song lyrics that have taught us valuable life lessons while we belted them out in the car. Turns out this country bad boy is full of fortune cookie-worthy wisdom! Keep reading »

Watch This Couple’s Taylor Swift-Inspired Baby Announcement

We Are Having, Having, Having Another Baby

When Nate and Erica Eaton found out they were expecting a second child, they were shocked. They figured their friends and family would be surprised too, so they put together a video that switched up the lyrics to Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” to share the good news in a this clever video. If the quirky announcement they made for their first pregnancy is any indication (Nate is a newscaster for WRIC news in Richmond, Virgina), they must be really fun parents! In my humble opinion, the real star of this video their adorable baby, who pretty much steals the show. [Just Jared]

Beyonce & Jay Z Officially Announce 16-Date “On The Run” Tour

Beyonce And Jay Z Officially Announce 16-Date On The Run Tour

Where Brooklyn at? No, literally, where Brooklyn at? Today, Beyonce and Jay Z officially announced their 16-date co-headlining “On The Run” tour, which kicks off in Miami on June 25, but my excitement was tempered by the realization that Jayonce would be skipping what I assumed would be a guaranteed stop — Brooklyn, New York, specifically at the Jay Z-owned Barclays Center. Instead, the closest show for us rabid followers of music’s King and Queen will be in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Wah. Anyway, this isn’t just about me and how the hell I can justify spending bank money on tickets for a show in another state. This is about you and how far you’ll have to run to see the “On The Run” tour. See all 16 stops after the jump! Pre-sale tickets go on sale tomorrow at 8 a.m.! [I Am Beyonce] Keep reading »

The “Happy” Music Video Without Music Is Bizarrely Captivating

happy no music
Whoa, This Is Strange

It might sound crazy what I’m about to say … but the video for Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” is a bit creepy without any music. Here are parts of the video with Pharrell and others singing the song without any musical backing, which sounds less like a cappella than you would expect. I’m fairly certain that this is how musical numbers on TV shows and movies are formed — actors sing the song live, but the real singing and musical accompaniment is added later — but I didn’t realize it could be done for music videos, too. How strange! [AV Club]

Help Make A Difference For Their Family!

Jorge Narvaez became an online sensation a few years ago when he sang a cover of “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros on YouTube with his daughter Alexa.

John Mayer’s Acoustic Cover Of “XO” Isn’t Too Shabby

Can't Go Wrong With A Quality Bey Cover!

Like many members of the female population, I have some misgivings about John Mayer. I’ve pretty much lost my ability to enjoy his music for what it is without thoughts of his douchey personality tainting my experience. That said, his cover of Beyonce’s “XO” is quite nice. If you like John’s musical style, you’ll love his raw, romantic interpretation of the song. [Huffington Post]

“Tuition,” A Cover Of Beyoncé’s Song “Partition” About Student Loans, Is Beyond Real

Sallie Mae, Pay Off My Tuition Please

Beyoncé may have already sung about someone “callin’ like a collector” but she’s probably never wondered “if I owe Sallie Mae or I owe the mob.” That’s what Chanel Carroll sings in her completely on point parody cover of “Partition” called (duh) “Tuition” about the loan giant Sallie Mae. Pay all my loans please, I just wanna live the debt-free life …  Oh man, as a fellow NYU grad who also used a buttload of loans to pay for school, I so relate to that one. Those student loan collection people are persistent and will hunt you down!  Maybe Bey will see this spoof and offer to foot the bill?
