Hunter Hayes Covers Sam Smith’s I’m Not The Only One [Video]

I am a huge fan of pop singer Sam Smith.  In fact, I was sitting just a few feet from the stage late last year when he played the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville for the first time.  (Side note: Tim McGraw is a big fan too and took his daughter to see Sam).  And now, country artist Hunter Hayes has decided to tackle a Sam Smith song.  Appearing on Pop Shack TV, Hunter covered Sam's song "I'm Not the Only One."  See what you think?

Damien Rice Rocks the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville [Video]

I am trying to remember if I have ever cried at a concert.  And, I don't think I ever have.  Well, until Wednesday night, when I saw Damien Rice in concert at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.  I have been a huge fan since I heard Damien singing "The Blower's Daughter" in the opening frames on the movie Closer, starring Julia Roberts, Jude Law, Clive Owen and Natalie Portman.  That is one of my favorite songs EVER and it made me an immediate fan of the man who wrote and sang it.  And, finally, last Wednesday, I had the chance to see Damien Rice live for the first time.  And he was absolutely hypnotic.  I could not take my eyes off him.

The 'Trio' released two critically acclaimed albums, one in 1987 and another in 1999. Now, according to Parton, a third disc that will be comprised of never-before released tracks will be coming out later this year.
