If you haven’t heard this amazingly talented woman sing yet, you must. do. it. now. This is Ashley Monroe’s NRP Tiny Desk performance, which we love. Her album, “Like a Rose” is everything we look for in music — and it’s basically our soundtrack these days at WyoStyle. Our favorites are the title track, “Like a Rose,” and “You Got Me.” Listen, and enjoy!
We love watching the Country Music Awards…but we love watching the Red Carpet of the Country Music Awards even more! As always, the women of country sparkled last night. Mostly because they’re beautiful people dressed to the nines. But they can give thanks to their jewels, gems and baubles for adding a little extra glimmer. Who was the best accessorized on the Biggest Night in Country Music? We’ll tell you…
And the Winners Are…
Best Dressed Man | Scotty McCreery
We gotta give some love to the men. And we’ve gotta hand it to little Scotty McCreery for showing up in a drop-dead-handsome suit. Good color. Good fit. He nailed it. (Getty Images)
#6 | Connie Britton
This Nashville star doesn’t need jewelry to sparkle. That’s why we included her, albeit at #6. Isn’t she just fabulous?! (Credit: Michael Loccisano/Getty Images)
#5 | Jennifer Nettles
Jennifer Nettles was one of our favorite looks of the evening. Her vintage-inspired drop-waist gown was absolutely gorgeous. Not many people could pull of the drop-waist, let alone that color. But she rocked it. Points for keeping the jewelry understated with diamond studs, and for letting the dress do all the sparkling. (Getty Images)
#4 | Robin Roberts
Robin Roberts rocked the pantsuit at the CMAs last night. Points for being bold. And points for knowing that accessorizing isn’t all about the jewelry. Her diamond belt was one of the most fabulous parts of the night! (Credit: Larry Busacca/WireImage)
#3 | Kellie Pickler
We loved Kellie Pickler’s 20’s glam look. And we love even more that she didn’t over-accessorize. A sparkly statement bracelet and a subtle pop of emerald peeking out from behind her hair were the perfect touches to complete her look. (Credit: Larry Busacca/WireImage)
#2 | Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift can’t win everything. But she came in a close second with her ornate diamond cluster earrings. Bonus points for knowing how to rock red on the Red Carpet. (Credit: Larry Busacca/WireImage)
#1 | Mirand Lambert
Miranda Lambert was absolutely stunning with her crystal-stone drop earrings — the perfect complement to her even more stunning, svelte royal blue dress. (Credit: Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic)
We can’t stop listening to this amazing song by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell — it’s at the top of our playlist here at WyoStyle!
In this video, Edie Brickell tells the story behind her writing the lyrics to “Sarah Jane and the Iron Mountain Baby,” and then performs it with Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers. Performance took place at the NON-COMMvention, a public radio convention, at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. May 16, 2013.
