Halsey fans ride or die, and they’re worried about the singer’s health. After seeing them hospitalized and a TikTok video that “essentially confirms[s] that [they’re] allergic to literally everything,” fans received an official statement from the artist.

Posted via Instagram Stories, Halsey explained what’s going on with their health.

“Obviously my health has changed a lot since I got pregnant and gave birth. I started getting really, really, really sick,” they said. For context, in July 2021, Halsey and their partner, Alev Aydin, welcomed their son Ender into the world.

Later, the singer was hospitalized after falling ill. They were diagnosed with “Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjogren’s syndrome, mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), [and] POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome),” according to the Instagram update. While explaining her diagnosis, the singer wore a heart monitor.

“I’m still looking for the root cause of some of these things,” Halsey continued. “It could potentially be another type of autoimmune disease, and I’ve had autoimmune issues for most of my life, especially endometriosis. But it’s kind of been exacerbated since I started. got Ender.

Despite this update, Halsey didn’t want to worry her fans and followers. In fact, they are still planning to put on their Love and Power Tour.

“I’m really excited and confident that I’m going to be able to do this in a healthy way, where I can do my best for all of you. And honestly, I’m so excited to go on tour, because it allows me to not think to everything and keep my body healthy because I’m very active and I do cardio every day,” they said.

Halsey will kick off her tour on May 17 in West Palm Beach. Find more information and tickets for the tour HERE.

Behind the lyrics of the song: “Weekend” by Kane Brown https://steveazarlive.com/behind-the-lyrics-of-the-song-weekend-by-kane-brown/ Mon, 09 May 2022 16:39:17 +0000 https://steveazarlive.com/behind-the-lyrics-of-the-song-weekend-by-kane-brown/ For those heading to a summer house on a warm day, there might be an essential song for any chill-out playlist.

For those heading to a summer house on a warm day, there might be an essential song for any chill-out playlist. And it’s “Weekend” by Kane Brown.

The track, which reached listeners’ ears in August 2018 as the second single from the planned release of Brown’s second album, Experienceis the ultimate track to smile, sip a Solo cup, and enjoy the warm weather, the sun, and the thrill of doing nothing but laying on the grass or in the water.

And the clip is lovely, to boot. It shows actual footage of the famous singer-songwriter going to a grocery store to buy party and barbecue supplies. The job is done with frantic fans snapping cellphone photos as Brown waits to buy everything in the queue.

To start the song, Brown, born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, talks about quitting work, getting a bottle of something to share, and diving — literally and figuratively — into classic fun, all with his signature croon:

It’s 4:30 on Friday, I get off at 5:00
I come to you, you come to me
Got a bottle of Jack and some cheap red wine
Yeah, our own little world
I want to open them, close all the doors
Spin you around on the kitchen floor
‘Cause all week I’ve been waiting
you and me girl

I just chill on the weekend, weekend
Sipping on something cheap, cheap
Skinny dipping in the deep end, deep end
Or bass fishing with your feet in, feet in

It’s a quiet, low-tempo, even relaxing song. It’s the perfect track for any vacation mixtape (or for the road trip as you drive to your desired destination). But what does the 28-year-old Brown himself remember creating the song?

We caught up with the artist for our May/June American Songwriter print edition, and here’s what he told us:

“We wrote this song – we were in a house by the lake,” Brown told American Songwriter. “And I literally – they were working on it for like 15 minutes, just on the track. And I’m talking about, seconds after I walked in the room, I was like, ‘I’m just chilling on the weekends!’ And they were like, ‘Ah, I love that!’ And I was like, ‘That’s what I’m hearing right now.’ So, that’s what we ended up writing.

For many, it can be difficult to land on something so simple yet so universal. Songwriters – like all artists (and everyone?) – can overthink their work. And while Brown says he may have a streak for the same, what he ultimately relies on is his instincts when it comes to the work he does and publishes.

And that’s good because if he puts out a track and does come out, he’ll probably be on the live show’s setlist for years to come.

“I think I really overthink a lot of things,” Brown said. “But I always end up following my instincts. At first, I never realized that whatever song I release, if it [does well] so more than likely I will sing it throughout my career. So this has come to mind many times in my last outings. So I think it’s a huge maturing game. Definitively.”

On “Weekend,” Brown keeps the vibe going. That’s why the song remains popular with listeners in general (the track has some 18 million plays on YouTube, alone) and on summer shows in particular.

Brown sings:

I just chill on the weekend, weekend
Sipping on something cheap, cheap
Skinny dipping in the deep end, deep end
Or bass fishing with your feet in, feet in
Up all night then we sleep, sleep

Check out a fan-made version of Brown’s track, which showcases her crystal-clear low end and knack for keeping the party flowing, below.

“A long, long time ago / I still remember how this music made me smile…”

It’s been a long, long time since singer-songwriter Don McLean wrote those words, the opening lyrics to his classic song “American Pie.”

The seminal song from McLean’s 1971 second album, also titled “American Pie,” takes nearly nine minutes to weave its way through pivotal moments in popular culture and broader American history. The song is peppered with allusions to such things as the death of Buddy Holly (“The Day the Music Died”) and the counterculture (“Helter skelter in a summer swelter”).

‘American Pie’ turns 50 on Hot 100

As part of a tour to commemorate the song’s 50th anniversary – which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in January 1972 and remained there for four weeks – McLean will perform at the Holland Theater in Bellefontaine on Thursday.

Last version: “Who Are We” (single), Staycation Records, April 29, 2022 and “Modern Love” (single), Staycation Records, February 25, 2022

Pronouns: He she

On: “Who Are We” is Jeff Cormack’s second single since his 2013 debut album. Thirteen013 Summerdreams and features many quintessential dreamy guitar landscapes and introspective lyrics. Saved by caprice, Thirteen013 Summerdreams garnered unexpected praise with the song “Run” landing on the Spotify Viral Top50 US & Global Chart for over two weeks, “Empty Glass” being featured in the penultimate season finale of Shameless (2021), and the track “Sunshine’s Gone” was featured on Hulu’s better things and also global fashion campaigns for brands like Billabong and Ingersoll. This new single “Who Are We” is a sonic and lyrical evolution of Jeff Cormack’s debut album that stays perfectly close to home.

Cormack is a multi-instrumental writer, producer, designer, creative director and founder of Staycation Records/Audiohook.io. He has collaborated with major labels, agencies, content creators, artists, directors and major global brands to create award-winning sound for film and television, as well as exclusive fashion and streetwear collaborations and editorial campaigns based on stories. He remains busy creating with the artists of the Staycation label and his other passion project, Sud de la France. Harvesting top features and exclusive performances for American Songwriter publications, NPR, Consequence of Sound, Rolling Stone, Noisey, and recently opening for bands Portugal. The Man, The Flaming Lips and Michigander, it’s easy to see why the South of France was named one of the top ten reasons to visit Denver (Jeff’s hometown) by Refinery 29 Magazine.

Musicians who inspire: Everyone and everyone who does. I really don’t discriminate and can usually find inspiration anywhere when it comes to music. The more I get into music, the more I appreciate it all, but I really mostly listen to new music. We play old stuff, classics, soundtracks, etc. at home all day, but I’m usually blown away by new music on Spotify throughout the day while doing life’s things.

What is the next step for the group in 2022: Myself and the friends I collaborate with feel so lucky to be able to make music like we are after the past few years. We are so thankful that people still listen and come to shows, and want music for film/TV. So…I really plan on being thankful/grateful for a while! I have a finished album and will continue to release singles before the album is released this fall. I’m making some really cool movies where 3 or 4 of these songs will appear. So I really hope to release those songs, play some gigs, and connect with more people through music and work.

Judy Collins

Shervin Lainez/Courtsey of the Artist

  • “Bewitched”
  • “Arizona”
  • “When I Was a Girl in Colorado”
  • “Prairie Dream”

Judy Collins has made many other songwriters famous. She began her career singing other people’s songs, transforming American audiences into artists like Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell with her hit performances. But over the years, she’s also developed her own unique songwriting voice — and now, for the first time, every song on her latest album is an original. The album is called Bewitched and the songs tell stories from Judy’s life – one that has taken her from the wilderness of Colorado to some of the biggest stages in the world. In our conversation, Judy shares some of those stories, talks about her songwriting process and the advice she received from some of her very well-known songwriter friends, and we go into some of the issues and experiences that have fueled (and still fuel) his activism throughout his life. You’ll also hear him perform some of his new songs, starting with the album’s title track.

Here’s Judy Collins with “Spellbound,” live for Coffee of the world.

By having 56 singer-songwriters representing every state and territory, “American Song Contest” spotlighted artists who may not have previously had the opportunity to showcase their talents on a national platform.

Artists from the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, American Samoa and Hawaii are all represented on the NBC show hosted by Kelly Clarkson and Snoop Dogg. There are veteran artists in the competition, including Sisqó and Jewel, but all the songs performed are originals.

Among his competitors is Jason Jabinigay who goes by Jason J. His parents are from Iloilo, Philippines, but he grew up in Guam where his family settled. He credits his Filipino family’s love of karaoke as well as his love of island music for pushing him to pursue a career as a singer-songwriter.

“What got me into music was growing up in Guam. A lot of my local friends would teach me songs and teach each other songs, and it got to the point where we were playing our own shows. So it was the culture of Guam that introduced me to music,” said Jason J.

He immediately turned to other island contestants when they came together for the competition in Hollywood.

“As soon as I arrived when we got to the hotel, the islanders automatically all tuned in. You know, ‘Hey, are you from Hawaii or Guam or American Samoa.’ And there’s already an automatic connection because we understand the cultures, we understand that it’s just a way of life and respect, and then the four of us islanders started teaching the island energy to the rest of the population.

The music and styles they perform have not had the same level of representation that other genres have enjoyed in other US reality singing competitions on prime time shows. For Tenelle, who represents American Samoa, the inclusion of artists like her in the “American Song Contest” is a game-changer.

“It’s sincere. It’s because it’s respect first, and we’re very careful and intentional with what we sing and how we portray ourselves. It’s not about us, it’s not about us. It’s not for me here to know. It’s about all nationalities, and all of Pacifica, and all of the lineage that I carry on my shoulders today on this stage and therefore, whoever has decided to include the territories , thank you with all my heart because I couldn’t share this story,” Tenelle said.

The artists will return next week to perform their original song and compete for the chance to secure the US vote and qualify for the Grand Finals. Meanwhile, supporters of each contestant can continue to stream their music which has been released on various platforms.

A sacred moment has just happened on “American Song Contest”. Michigan’s Ada LeAnn, the youngest singer in the competition, has just qualified for the semi-finals after the judging panel propelled her to number one at the end of the show.

The 17-year-old Battle Creek native is a junior in high school and is the only minor on the show. She doesn’t have to wait for the American vote next Monday to find out if she’s heading to the semi-finals. She learned this evening in the program broadcast on Monday April 18, thanks to the vote of the jury which passed it.

LeAnn performed with the fifth and final group of 11 singers, which also included Sisqó of “Thong Song” fame. He represents Maryland.

This singing competition features a singer from all 50 states, five US territories and the nation’s capital. Nominees range from unknown talents like LeAnn, to rising stars to music icons like Jewel, who represents Alaska, and Michael Bolton, who represents Connecticut.

“The song I sing is ‘Natalie,’ LeAnn said in her intro. “It’s about a girl who’s been cheated on. kind of stuck in. I love trying to be a voice for these young people. Being so young and representing my state, I definitely feel a pressure to live up to what we stand for.

After her performance at the end of the show, LeAnn saw her name appear at the top of the judging panel, automatically advancing her to the semi-finals which begin next Monday at 8:00 p.m. on NBC.

LeAnn was born and raised in Battle Creek where she attends Lakeview High School. She says she’s been singing since she can remember, but only really started doing it professionally about two years ago, when she was 14.

“Michigan is known for creating great American songwriters. Stevie Wonder, I see how young he was and I see how young I am and I say, how can I continue this legacy. I write every day. I draw a lot of inspiration from Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish.”

Following his performance, the hosts of the show briefly reacted. “It was so good,” host Kelly Clarkson said. “Nice record,” added co-host Snoop Dogg.

“American Song Contest” is the American version of the famous “Eurovision Song Contest”. Each singer will perform original music live, competing to win the country’s vote for best hit song. The final is only a few weeks away.
