Music Monday: A Look Back at 2014
Music Monday is a weekly feature I do to show off music must- haves!
Happy New Year everyone! Since it's the first Monday of the YEAR, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at all the great music I discovered and showcased in 2014! I wasn't as diligent in doing it every Monday, but I am going to try and be better this year because there's so much great music out there!

And there you have it! Those are my past Music Monday picks for the year of 2014!
It was a great music year for me- My biggest highlight was seeing O.A.R. along with Andy Grammer on my 30th birthday. I also went to a couple Live on the Green shows, which is a free mini music festival here, and I saw City & Colour and The Wild Feathers. I also went to a Spring Block Party event where I saw The Wild Feathers yet again, The Apache Relay, Sol Cat, Roots of a Rebellion, and Matt Walberg & the Living Situation.
A huge thanks goes to Lightning 100, Nashville's independent radio station for introducing me to so many awesome artists this past year!
