I tend to write my posts in advance. And, for March 16th, I had a pair of posts planned and written.
Then, I got busy and, well, I had to move one of the posts to February 1st when I didn't get it posted in time. Well, since they went together, I had to move the OTHER post to February 2nd.
That turned out to be the best thing I could have done for this month of Canadian music. You see, I didn't want this year to be a complete repeat of last year - I wanted new artists. And, so, as I told you a few days ago, I went hunting through the Juno nominees list.
Well, I wrote up the whole month of posts, and here I sit, reviewing my posts.
I had forgotten March 16th.
Not wanting to just have music from the last year, I decided to go back a year to the 2021 Juno nominees.
And right there, under the "Single of the Year" nominees, was none other than Nashville star and Stella sister Lennon Stella.
This was the nominated song. It's a pop gem from an artist I didn't expect to post this month. But how could I not?
The song also works in a more countrified acoustic version. Shot at Hutton Hotel in Nashville, it's a sublime performance.
