Miley Cyrus and Shawn Mendes are risking everything and making big changes in their career!


The Revivalists - Wish I Knew You

This band is so stinkin' cool, I am beyond happy they broke into the mainstream.  The Revivalists are a 7-piece band from New Orleans who play all different instruments including the saxophone and the trumpet.  They infuse folk, blues, and jazz into all their music, so you'll definitely want to dance after listening to their funky music.  The lead singer has kind of an Adam Levine sound to his voice, too.

So, imagine a Maroon 5... but more southern and less pop.  And then blend that together with intonations you get with The Lumineers, Mumford & Sons, and Of Monsters and Men. Honestly, their music is addicting.  There's always so much going on in them, but it's not distracting or overwhelming.

“Wish I Knew You" was the number one alternative song in the country last week.  Then, it crossed over, which is a feat you really don't see that often.  Although, that may be credited to a recent Blue Moon commercial that uses that song.

 They're playing the next Star 99.9 Michael's Jeweler's Acousitic Session on June 6th!  Keep listening for your chance to win tickets!!



Miley Cyrus -  Malibu

Miley has sworn off weed and alcohol because she's cleaning up her act.  It's all for her fiance, Liam Hemsworth, who inspired her new song and new outlook in life.  "Malibu" was written in the back of the car taking her to her first day on 'The Voice.'  She says the song is a dedication of her love.

But we shouldn't be all that surprised that Miley has reinvented herself once again.  I mean, she's been doing it for 10 years now, and some say she's mastered the art of serial reinvention.  First she was the rebel, then she tried bubble pop, then got dirty with hip-hop, then she became a "happy hippie."  So, naturally, wearing lacy white numbers and growing out her hair seems like a natural next step.

And we can thank Liam Hemsworth for bringing her into this new chapter in her life. 

It's pretty clear in the lyrics, too!

"I never would've believed you
If three years ago you told me I'd be here writing this song.
And I wanna thank you with all of my heart
It's a brand new start
A dream come true
In Malibu."
