Warning: The following contains spoilers for Tuesday’s This Is Us.

If you’ve managed to stop ugly-crying after this week’s This Is Us by now, you might be left with the same question we had: Who wrote that amazing song William’s band played?

We first heard the original song, “We Can Always Come Back to This,” in a flashback to a younger William’s days in Memphis, playing keyboards in his cousin Ricky’s cover band. William took a stab at writing an original song for the band, and Ricky »

Who Is Maren Morris? Get to Know Country's Next Big Thing

12 February 2017 6:45 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Getty / C Flanigan If you hadn't heard of Maren Morris until the Grammys (when she won!), now is the perfect time to get schooled. The 26-year-old country singer has landed on the charts thanks to her upbeat anthem, "My Church," and her debut album Hero was released to rave reviews and earned her five Cma Award nominations last year. She has a soulful, pop-infused sound, and her cool-girl swagger will make you wish she was your Bff - you know, the one with a sugary Southern drawl and superhot classic car who's never met a whiskey shot she didn't like. Here are eight things you should know about Maren before her impending country takeover. Yes, she's from the South. Maren hails from Dallas and currently resides in Nashville. She's taken! Maren is dating fellow country singer Ryan Hurd. Her music covers all the bases. In this case, the bases are spirituality, »

For William Bell, a Grammy Is a Lifetime in the Making

10 February 2017 12:59 PM, PST | | See recent news »

2017 is William Bell’s 60th year in the music industry. He’s 77 years old. Cream, the Byrds and Linda Ronstadt have recorded his songs. And this year, he’s up for his first Grammys.

Strangely, they’re in what could be considered opposing categories — American and traditional R&B — but it makes sense for Bell, who never quite fit into easy categories. Performer, songwriter, producer — Bell has done it all.

Born William Henry Yarborough in Memphis on July 16, 1939, Bell, like a lot of soul singers from his era, first started singing in church when he was just 8 years old. He »

Criterion Reflections – Monterey Pop (1968) – #168

28 January 2017 10:30 AM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

David’s Quick Take for the tl;dr Media Consumer:

Just as the Monterey International Pop Music Festival marked a pivotal and definitive turning point (in this case, upward) in the cultural ferment of the 1960s, so too the film document of that event, D.A. Pennebaker’s Monterey Pop, initiated a new way of capturing music and its performance for posterity. The weekend-long Festival, featuring mostly West Coast hippie rock and folk combos, with a few international surprises tossed into the mix, was like a meteor that streaked across the sky of an emerging new civilization, illuminating the landscape, brightening the eyes of its witnesses, summoning a potent mix of emotions: joy, euphoria, ecstasy, bewilderment, even dread. The cinematic document, a short film clocking in at just under 80 minutes, that confirmed all those conflicting, incredulous impressions is like the meteorite that survived its hard descent into the atmosphere – potently powerful »

Taron Egerton interview: Sing, Kingsman 2, Kingsman 3

Taron Egerton chats to us about Sing, Kingsman 2, a possible third film, and a big deleted scene from Kingsman…

Taron Egerton is, as he will tell you himself, easily best known for his role as Eggsy in Kingsman and its rapidly incoming sequel. In fact, so much of what I knew about Egerton comes from watching him in charm up the screen in Kingsman and Eddie The Eagle that I was a little surprised to see just how good a job he also does in Sing, playing a singing gorilla who’d rather tickle the ivories than drive get-away for his family of bank robbers. Singing is a particular skill of course but, as Egerton and I discussed, so is providing the voice of an animated character.

We met last week and chatted about Sing, Kingsman chapters two and beyond, and what else Egerton has on his To Do list. »
