#7 on the Pop Culture Countdown of Moments That Were/Are of No Significance To You- Kenny Chesney and Renee Zellweger or What I Call What Should Have Never Happened

Okay, let's get back to the basics. I had designed this countdown in my head as being a gloss-over of the past decade in pop culture but I had included some recent events that were just earthshattering (literally) to NOT have been included. Did that sentence make sense? Who know; who cares!

Let's journey back to the mid-2000s now. When smartphones had yet to take over the world and facebook was just a dream in Mark Zuckerberg's oval-shaped head.

#7 Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney Married And It Lasted Like Two Minutes



Oh I adore this picture for reasons I'm still not totally sure of. Look at those newlyweds! Look at her glow! Look at his ridiculous hat!

This one came of the blue, didn't it? No one even really seemed to know they were an item until much too late. And by then the unthinkable act had been carried out and Renee, supposedly, believed Kenny's tractor to be INDEED sexy.

Wait:  what?

Renee apparently became lucid when she woke up and saw who was next to her in her big bed in the Virgin Islands (Kenny Chesney). Likely she screamed and wanted their marriage to be revealed as what it kinda was- a fraud!

It lasted from May to September. C'est la vie. Renee would go onto date Jack White and celebrated manwhore Bradley Cooper. Kenny Chesney is still dodging gay rumors.

Other celebrity marriages that have lasted this little? The Kardashians, Britney Spears and her high school pal, I think we all know what you sign up for when you marry a Kardashian though...

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
