First of all, I want to say that ever since I was a child, I have loved your music. However, you have a cooking show. I am

Wrong Side of Memphis

confused and would like to see you live, not cooking mind you, but singing.

I would love to see you at the Rodeo or the Sam Houston Racepark with hundreds of others singing in unison, both drunk and sober, to She’s In Love With the Boy, and plenty more. Bottom line: you are a legend.

However, you need to tour more. More specifically – please come to Houston sometime soon.

 

 


Trisha Yearwood is, hands down, my favorite country singer of all time next to Reba and Shania Twain. (I’m definetly a 90’s country girl aren’t I?) This was one of the first songs I ever heard of hers that I can recall. I was only 10 and someone told the Girl Scout leader to turn it up. It was awesome.

However, I have an interesting little story behind why I like this song.

At the University of Houston – where I got my Bachelors in Broadcast Journalism. I worked at the Daily Cougar and covered student groups. I found a student group to cover called Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, who were having a “welcome back to school” outreach event. I was already a Christian that was in the Baptist Student Ministry at the time, therefore, due to conflict of interest, I couldn’t cover any of their events. Intervarsity, however, I requested to cover their event and did so.

So I covered the event and there was this girl named Nicole that spoke. She told her story of faith and all that jazz.

A few weeks passed and I kinda felt like God was leading me away from the BSM. I was looking for a new accountability group – one away from my parents church. So I went to the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship Women’s Bible Study and Nicole was there. Nicole was there and we became fast friends. We met each week and talked about basically any and everything. We even worked out together at the Rec center once – she broadcasted to everyone who I liked at the time.

Anyways, so a year or so later, she got married to her college sweetheart – a fellow engineering major like herself. (even though she decided to become a campus minister) I always thought this song was very fitting for her and her husband. Nicole likes country music and I think it fits her well.

Only deal is I would’ve had to change the names of the 2 characters in the song to fit her and her husband, the name “Tastee Freeze” (because we have a Dairy Queen, not a Tastee Freeze), and some of the aspects of how he proposed, the fact that they weren’t childhood sweethearts but college sweethearts, etc. I think it would have made a great wedding gift to them.

But it never happened.

Nicole and I are still friends to this day. She moved up to Dallas for her and her husband’s job shortly after she got married in 2010. However, we do try to get together every now and then when she comes to Houston.


The Wild Heart is not making this up people (or random robots and cats that walk across the keyboard and hit “ENTER.”)

Stevie Nicks has made an announcement to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton that Fleetwood Mac will be going on tour sometime next year!!! It will happen after both Nicks and fellow band member Lindsey Buckingham finish promoting their various solo albums.

With that said, let’s hope that somehow this blog, the Wild Heart (btw my real name is Christina), takes off like a rocket within the coming year. What do I mean you ask: I would like to turn this into a real job – blogging about music. Right now I am jobless and living at home searching for a job. (Aaaah the plight of the recent college graduate of a state university!) What I am trying to say is that if you would like to sponsor this blog, please email me at christinahildebrand123@gmail.com. I would absolutely love to speak with you.

Also, I would love to do more with this blog as well – such as cover concerts from both Houston, TX – where I am based; but also famous festivals like Glastonbury, FreePress SummerFest – an annual indie festival in Houston, TX, CreationFest (for Christian music), the CMA music festival – one day I will review one of the country albums or cds that I do have (mostly Trisha Yearwood, Lee Ann Womack, LeAnn Rimes, Gretchen Wilson and Taylor Swift) Sponsorship is the way to do this as far as I know.

Additionally, concerts in general are not cheap and I would like to be on the good side of the management, so if you are a major artist (or even minor artist) and you would like for me to cover your concert, please email me at the above address.

Anyways, so if you would like to sponsor me and this blog or even have suggestions about how to turn this blog into a business – please feel free to email me at christinahildebrand123@gmail.com and I would love to speak with you.
