BVJ Countdown - Day 35!

1.) Go get yourself a four wheel drive
2.) Go buy yourself a twelve pack of somethin light
3.) She might be a little hard to find
But she'll be yours tonight if you get this right

Truck.Beer.Girl - Drew Gregory

Another one of those classic country songs that has the formula down pat. What else does a guy need in this world anyway? ;)

BVJ Countdown - Day 34!



Well I used to be a farmer, and I made a living fine.
I had a little stretch of land along the sea behind.
But times went by and though I tried, the money wasn't there,
and the bankers came and took my land and told me fair is fair.
I looked for every kind of job the answer always no,
Hire you now they always laughed we just let 20 go
The government they promised me a measly a little sum
But I've got too much pride to end up just another bum,
Then I thought who gives a damn if all the jobs are gone,
I'm gonna be a pirate, on the river Saskatchewan


Didn't know this band before I found these lyrics, but from what I've read, I like them so far! Have that country, dirt road feel.

BVJ Countdown - Day 33!



You roll up when it feels right and you wanna have your fun
You pull in at midnight and you peel out by one
So keep on driving baby, I think I'm finally done
I might be a sweet ride
But I ain't your hit and run

Hit and Run - Jess Moskaluke

Really loving this 'power' song. Reminds me of Gunpowder and Lead from Miranda Lambert. Very talented lady. Love BVJ for introducing me to these new artists!!



-M.

BVJ Countdown - Day 32!



Seems everywhere I go these days
I run into friends that say
It's written on my face
I'm all about you

So if you ever walk through the door
And wonder what I'm smiling for
It's cause I could not ask for more
I'm all about you

All About You - Jerrod Niemann

Love this song. I feel like I have a trend of picking super lovey songs lately. Not sure where THAT'S coming from ;). Anywho! Great song with Colbie Caillat :)



-M.

BVJ Countdown - Day 31!



Holding on to setting suns and memories they fade,
Walk away watch me run, watch me break.
Oh love I can’t keep waiting.
Letting go of turning tides and burning hearts tonight,
Walk away watch me run, watch me break.
Oh love I can’t keep waiting.

Can't Keep Waiting - Autumn Hill

Very sad feel to this song. But then again, sometimes enough is enough. You can't always be waiting for someone to come around to what they used to be. You have to live your own life and fly.

BVJ Countdown - Day 30!

Wow!! 30 DAYS OF BLOGS!! WOOT!!
Hurtin’ Albertan with nothing more to loose
Too much oil money and not enough booze
East of the Rockies and West of the rest
I do my best to do my damndest and that’s about all I guess
Hurtin' Albertan - Tim Hus
Well this one was another request. Will always remember this song because I first heard it cruising down Jasper Ave in Edmonton, in the back of a Dodge truck, holding the hand of my newly titled boyfriend, while him and his 'bromance husband' blared this song and laughed together. Should be interesting to see this guy perform this song!
Korey + Mark = Forever

BVJ Countdown - Day 29!

She's my drinkin' buddy
She's got tight blue jeans
Long blond hair
And she's a cowboy's dream

She can knock em back
Shot for shot
Like you've never seen

What's even better
Is a little bit a later
I might just get lucky
With my drinkin' buddy
Drinkin' Buddy - Gord Bamford
Looking forward to having great times with my drinking buddies! Can't wait :). Love this song!!

-M.

BVJ Countdown - Day 28!

Your down on your luck.
You just lost your truck.
You cant afford another beer.
Your credit cards don’t work.
Whole world thinks you’re a jerk.
You wondering how you wound up here.

It wouldn’t been cheaper to keep her around
It wouldn’t been better to let her keep you down
Living with a crazy wife beats an empty bank account
It wouldn’t been cheaper to keep her around
Cheaper to Keep Her - Aaron Lines
When looking for lyrics for these posts, I don't necessarily know all of the songs that I choose. Sometimes I just randomly pick one basd on the title. This was the case with this gem.
-M.


BVJ Countdown - Day 27!

When all you get is red lights, I can be the one to change your luck
You need a free ride, here's a little bit of love to lift you up and
 I'll be the blue in your skies, just to show you
The world's not black and white
And love's not colour blind
Love's not colour blind

Colour Blind - Small Town Pistols
Love these cheesy little love song. Love is definitely not colour blind :). Such sweet lyrics. Love them.

BVJ Countdown - Day 26!

Well I don't give a dang about nothing
I'm singing and Bling-Blinging
While the girls are drinking
Long necks down!
And I wouldn't trade ol' Leroy
or my Chevrolet for your Escalade
Or your freak parade
I'm the only John Wayne left in this town
This song just screams country music and what this jamboree is all about. Country boys and girls doing their thang! Can't wait to hear this gem live!!

BVJ Countdown - Day 25!

Well it's a long way to Richmond
Rollin' north on 95
With a redhead ridin' shotgun
And a pistol by my side
Tearin' down that highway
Like a modern day Bonnie and Clyde


I just love the raspiness of his voice on this song. Kinda reminds me of another song that I heard the other day by Jay-Z and Beyonce (weird tie-in I know!) but I like the whole Bonnie and Clyde idea. I think it's super tough and a cute idea.

BVJ Countdown - Day 24!

Johnny's daddy was taking him fishin'
When he was eight years old
A little girl came through the front gate holdin' a fishing pole
His dad looked down and smiled, said we can't leave her behind
Son I know you don't want her to go but someday you'll change your mind
And Johnny said "Take Jimmy Johnson, take Tommy Thompson, take my best friend Bo
Take anybody that you want as long as she don't go
Take any boy in the world
Daddy please don't take the girl

Don't Take the Girl - Tim McGraw

When trying to decide which song to use today, I just let my head decide. Out of all of the options, this one popped up. Have loved this song since childhood. I love when country songs tell stories, or have a common lyric path, makes it easy to follow and grow with the song. Hopefully he plays this gem :).



-M.

BVJ Countdown - Day 23!

If you ain't here to party
You picked the wrong place
You picked the wrong Friday night
If you ain't here to party
You'll be missin' out on the
Best damn time of your life
So go on and throw your card down
Knock a shot out
And get yourself in the zone
Yeah, you might as well go on
And head your ass back home
If you ain't here to party

If You Ain't Here to Party - Luke Bryan

I think this song says it all when it comes to BVJ. If you aren't there to have a good time, laugh with friend, socialize and just rock out, then you picked the wrong place to spend a long weekend! Can't wait for all of the good times to come!

BVJ Countdown - Day 22!

Chasin' girls, what a life 
Man I love them can't get enough of them 
From their toes up to their curls 

Chasin' girls, hard to catch 
Sweet to hold, even tougher to let them go 
Nothin' like it in the whole wide world 
Chasin' girls

Chasin' Girls  - Rodney Atkins

I think this song is super cute. Love the progression of the lyrics. Definitely a country fav from this guy :).


-M.

BVJ Countdown - Day 21!

So...I've been visiting a special guy the past few days and I've been neglecting these daily blog posts, but I'm back and updating! Woot!!

'Cause it's midnight in Montgomery, just hear that whippoorwill
See the stars light up the purple sky, feel that lonesome chill
'Cause when the wind is right, you'll hear his songs, smell whiskey in the air
Midnight in Montgomery, he's always singing there

Midnight in Montgomery  - Alan Jackson

So the boys last name totally reminds me of this song and I think of him every time I hear it. Definitely gonna be swaying with him during this song.

BVJ Countdown - Day 20!!

Wow!! 20 whole days of consistent content on this blog!! Woot!! And we hit the 'less than 50 days left' mark for BVJ!!


You're the first thing on my mind when I wake
The first word on my lips is your name
From the very first time I looked into your eyes I knew
What matters the most is the one that you're with 
Every smile, every touch, every kiss that I give
Every little thing 
Every little thing I do
Starts with you


Starts With You - Tenille

Love this girl! So glad that BVJ made me find her! She is soo talented and her songs are amazing! Just blown away!

BVJ Countdown - Day 19!

And when I need two arms around me 

And theres no one near 
When I'm alone let the only sound be 
No fear 



I used to hit every wall there was 
I used to run away from love 
All I ever wanted was right here 
But I had to reach way down inside 
I had to have faith I'd find 
No fear

No Fear - Terri Clark

So my first artist repeat! I chose this song because I think it's a great way to live life. Have no fear! Live hard, love hard and go after what you want! Love this song! So motivating!

BVJ Countdown - Day 18!


Saw the pines kiss the nothern skies
While the mist floats off the river, of wicked wilds
To the fading blue, in a vacant room
Might wash your lonely eyes you won’t get to blue
And as the winds sweeps through the valley
I still hear the church bells ring
Echoes from the distance, through the naked forest ring


Northern Redemption - The Abrams Brothers

Love songs about the north. I'll always have a huge place in my heart for the forests and trees of the north. Love these lyrics!

BVJ Countdown - Day 17!

She may not be the princess that I saw in my dreams
She may not be the kind of girl my mother meant for me
She may not be the cover girl from a magazine 
But she’s the one…. oh I know inside my heart she’s the one

She's The One - Danny Hooper

Love this song about love. This guy is the master of the show! Can't wait to see him perform!!

BVJ Countdown - Day 16!

Can you tell me right now should I unlock the door
Or will you come in the way you did before
Ooh, just like you did before
Is there anything left of everything we had

Anything At All - Autumn Hill

Love these female/male songs! Not a song whose theme I've touched on yet with the lyrics. Song about heartbreak and loss.

BVJ Countdown - Day 15!

You can't hide Beautiful
You can't hide wonderful
There's nothing that she has to do
It just comes natural
She makes it look easy
I love what she does to me
No way to disguise
The way that she shines
You can't hide beautiful

You Can't Hide Beautiful - Aaron Lines

I love the lyrics of this song. And it goes great with the lady who inspired this post, my greatly beautiful friend Ashley. She is amazing, inside and out, she motivates me, speaks her mind and is a great cheerleader for my life! Love you Ash!!

BVJ Countdown - Day 14!!

Yay 2 weeks done!! Excellent!!

Don't be afraid that your dream might come true
There ain't no reason it can't be you.

Somebody will find you tonight
Somebody will feel the spotlight
Baby it feels like you'll never get over that hill
Aw but somebody will


Didn't even realize who this song was by. Whenever I drive around Calgary, they are playing this song and it's from a Calgary country artist! Love that!! So stoked that he's going to BVJ!!

BVJ Countdown - Day 13!

I was wanderin' 'round this mean old town
Chin down on my chest
My brows were beaten, my pride was feelin'
Like it needed a little rest

But then you came along with a beautiful smile
And you danced just like a dream
You kiss like fire and your lips taste sweeter than
Strawberries and ice cream



Where Ya Been -  The Derailers

Loved the lyrics of this song even though I haven't heard the actual song. I really think these lyrics are super sweet and can't wait to hear these guys in person!!

BVJ Countdown - Day 12!


So if you're traveling in the North Country Fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine



Girl From The North Country  - Rosanne Cash


This song reminds me of another music festival I've gone to in Alberta. Loved both music festivals, NCF and BVJ equally!!

BVJ Countdown - Day 11!

Wow! Over 10 days done, and I just found out that my BVJ tickets are waiting at home for me!! 


Oh blame it on the radio...the radio
I blame it on the radio
I never thought that you would let me go
And still have hope through the audio



Blame It On The Radio - Small Town Pistols

I didn't even know this band sang this song until I was looking up songs for them! So happy I figured it out. Makes me wanna see them perform even more!! 

Ahhh it's the Wilkinsons! I knew the female voice sounded familiar!!

BVJ Countdown - Day 10!!


I know, you're only looking out for me.
And he just came out of the blue.
Sayin' the sweetest things I've ever heard
You don't believe him but I do.

I'm already fallin', fallin'
Yeah, I just couldn't wait.
Or maybe you're right, I'm wrong
And I'm halfway to "it's too late."
I know what you're thinkin', I'm sinkin'
But it sure don't feel that way.
You can say "I told you so" if it falls apart
Dear heart


Dear Heart - Tenille

So I just downloaded this amazing girls album today because of this post! It's called Light. She has a Miranda Lambert-esque voice which is awesome and lovely. She is a Canadian girl with some southern soul! Can't wait to see her live! Love this song too!!

BVJ Countdown - Day 9!

No, I may not be the biggest fish in this town

But some still say that I’m the baddest thing around
Yeah I love my job and I work real hard
And I get chicks... cuz I play guitar

"'Cause I Play Guitar" - Big and Rich

So I'm gonna be honest, I've never heard this song. I didn't wanna pick the typical Save a Horse... just yet. Save that for later. So I looked up lyrics and this is what I found :). I think this cockiness portrays the band quite well!!

BVJ Countdown - Day 8!

When you walk in the room

But something's going on
More then animal attraction
It plays yeah
It ain't your eyes your lips your nose your hips
That got me in this mess
Blame it on that red dress.



This song reminds me of two great, cherished friends because it is their song. You two better dance to it at BVJ!!



-M.

BVJ Countdown - Day 7!

I can't sleep a wink anymore

Ever since you first walked out the door

But I don't think the worst has happend yet


Classic band. So stoked for them to rock their golden oldies!!
