The Friday Five: The Music of Hart Of Dixie

While The CW’s “Hart of Dixie” hasn’t officially been canceled, the show’s creator and actors have already posted their goodbyes on social media, making it seem like this is the end.  We’re going to miss this show, with it’s wonderful cast of characters, and the music.  “Hart of Dixie” definitely helped contribute to our new found love of country music, with a soundtrack filled with everyone from Dierks Bentley to Thomas Rhett to Hunter Hayes, perfect for the show’s small-town Alabama setting.  The show even brought in quite a few country guest stars during its run.  Here are some of “Hart of Dixie’s” most memorable musical moments!

The “Hart of Dixie” finale airs tonight at 8pm on The CW.

1. Danielle Bradbery
When she released a track called “The Heart of Dixie,” it was pretty much a given that she’d show up in Bluebell.

2. Gloriana
We’re still impressed with how Wade and Lemon got the band to perform at the Rammer Jammer.

3. Logan Mize
The “Can’t Get Away From A Good Time” singer was a guest star on the show before signing with Sony last year.

4. Jamestown Revival
Their appearance in last week’s episode was one of many moments during the show that had us Shazam-ing or Googling song lyrics to find out what song was playing.

5. George Tucker
We love that George Tucker, Renaissance Man, is heading to Nashville.  If music management doesn’t work out, you can always sing!  And hey Scott Porter, if you want to release a country album, we’d fully support that!

Bonus:  More George Tucker

The Friday Five: *NSYNC’s “No Strings Attached” Turns 15!

This week mark’s the 15th anniversary of one of the greatest albums of all time – *NSYNC’s “No Strings Attached.” We have fond memories of pre-ordering the CD at Sam Goody, running to the mall after school the day it came out to pick it up. And of course, you weren’t cool unless you brought the album with you the next day and fangirled over the pictures of your favorite (JC and Lance) in the CD booklet! In honor of this momentous occasion, here are our favorite songs from “No Strings Attached.”  We recommend celebrating by watching *NSYNC: Live from Madison Square Garden and dancing along.

1. “Bye Bye Bye”
Everything about this song is amazing. The dance moves, the video, that note JC hits?

2. “It’s Gonna Be Me”
The origin of *NSYNC’s signature slow lean and pop.

3. “I Thought She Knew”
*NSYNC were known for their moves and style, but this track proved they could SING. We get chills every time we listen to it. If we ever get to hear this live (Which we will because a reunion tour will happen.) we will be in tears.

4. “It Makes Me Ill”
Don’t you feel awesome when you can sing along to that quick verse at the beginning?

5. “Digital Get Down”
Basically, *NSYNC sang about Face Time before it was even a thing.

Bonus: “Space Cowboy” feat. Lisa Left Eye Lopes
Yes, they rode mechanical bulls during this song on tour.

Bonus #2: “Just Got Paid”
