TikTok sensation and “Villian” singer/songwriter Lily Rose sits down for an interview with GLAAD representative Anthony Allen Ramos to talk about her long road to overnight success, the state of the LGBTQ+ community in Nashville, and of course, new music co-written by Sam Hunt) on the horizon. On singing openly about other women Lily had this to say: “I met with a lot of record labels, but the thing about Big Loud that was a no-brainer for me was that they just let their artists be authentic and we have song integrity that’s through the roof out here. As long as we maintain those two things and we have very high song integrity, and being authentic, I’mma cut the song. And with ‘Remind me of You” you know there’s so many pronouns and everything… we’re not afraid of getting backlash on a song that’s a smash… It’s all about what serves the song.“ On her sudden success and acceptance from high-profile artists, she says “Starting to form relationships with some of my favorite country artists like Tenpenny, and Devon Dawson, and Jimmy (Allen) and all of this… Imposter Syndrome is real! “ On advice for young people who might be having a rough time: “As long as you are always living your truth, people are going to love you. It might not be the people you were hopeful to be accepted by but there is a group of people out there that is a no-brainer, that is going to accept you and adore you. Just be true to you. “ TBH… there is so much happening in this interview that is refreshing, accepting, and empowering for LGBTQ+ artists that it’s a must-watch for anyone!

While some folks were hoarding toilet paper and hiding from murder hornets, a lot of great artists were quietly releasing music to empty venues and overloaded livestreams. We want to make sure you don’t miss out on some real gems that snuck their way into our playlists! Without further ado, let us present the album “Bridges and Backroads” from modern bluegrass veteran Jerry Salley.

It’s not often that a company sends us a product that we absolutely rave about here at CMNB headquarters, but the Ambush Mosquito Trap has won our endorsement and adoration! As many of our readers already know, we’ve been slowly working on turning our headquarters into a Tiny Cabin Country Music Compound, and with that comes a LOT of outdoor work. We’re digging trenches, plotting gardens, raising chickens, and of course, working all day in open buildings that aren’t quite sealed against the elements. Last summer we were swarmed by all manner of biting bugs, and it made the work almost unbearable, so when we got a surprise package from AmbushMosquitoTraps.com a couple months ago, we were thrilled, but skeptical. According to the website, the mosquito trap is designed to attract and trap the pesky flesh-munchers from up to a 1/2 acre radius, keeping them off our skin and caught neatly in the little basket on the underside of the device. Of course, it arrived in the same week the whole region turned into a popsicle landscape, so we had to wait until the world thawed to try it out. Once we set up the device, which involved plugging in a cord and setting the bait cake in the little tray (super easy), we went back to construction as usual, and thought nothing of it. And then the rain came… followed by very warm days. If you live in the midwest then you know. Rain + Sun = Mosquito Heaven! Yet strangely enough, we weren’t getting eaten alive! It could have been the trap. It could have been the deep freeze How could we know? After 2 weeks of gorgeous spring weather, perfect breeding conditions, and the disassembling of a neighbor’s above ground pool, the proof was in the bag though. Literally IN THE BAG. You see, the Ambush Mosquito Trap has a neat and tidy mesh basket built into its underside, and as I was cleaning the yard for our first big mow of the season, I and checked it, and to my morbid fascination I found over 2 inches of captured dead pests! The trap was doing its job and then some! I detached the basket and dumped its contents. It’s now a few mows in, TONS of time outdoors later, and I am still bite-free, a small miracle in my world, and I give 100% of the credit to the Ambush Mosquito Trap! * This post is marked as Sponsored because the product was sent to us without charge. All opinions are our own and not influenced by anyone or anything other than the quality of the product itself… trust me… if it sucked then you wouldn’t be reading about it on our site 😉 Cheers! ~WC~
