'Spaceman' is Nick Jonas's COVID-era tribute to love

(03/22/21 5:42pm)

Nick Jonas put his brothers aside for this one and returned to the solo stage with Spaceman, an album that is, dare I say, out of this world. This is his first solo album since the Jonas Brothers reunited around this time in 2019, leaving many fans wondering what this means for the boy band. However, the surprise release of the deluxe version provides some reassurance as track “Selfish” features both Joe and Kevin. Following the news, he wrote on instagram “Told you @jonasbrothers weren’t going anywhere.” Phew. Since the Disney-era JoBros, Nick has shown his affinity to grow as an independent artist. Even though he has reunited with his brothers, that fact has not changed, and the two are not mutually exclusive. 

A look back at Dolly Parton’s philanthropic legacy

(03/05/21 12:13am)

What do most people think of when they hear Dolly Parton? If you are anything like me, you remember Aunt Dolly bickering with Mamaw over Elvis Presley on Disney Channel’s sitcom “Hannah Montana.” You might think of her induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame or her beloved song “Jolene,” but her philanthropic efforts are perhaps least likely to top the list. These efforts go on and on, spanning the duration of her career and deserving recognition. The country legend grew up in Sevier County, Tennessee, one of the poorest counties in the country. As she rose to fame and wealth, her past economic struggles humbled her, leading to a philanthropic journey that has persisted throughout her career.

'Bliss' is a movie filled with anything but

(02/15/21 8:20pm)

Amazon Prime released the science fiction film “Bliss” on February 5, 2021, following the quarantine trend of releasing movies directly to streaming services. Directed by Mike Cahill, the film stars Owen Wilson and Salma Hayek. This powerhouse combination should not get your hopes up, unfortunately. Your first question might be how Owen Wilson fits into a sci-fi film, and honestly, that should give you a sense of how the whole movie plays out.
