25 Favorite Musicians + Bands

On Monday I decided to share a bit more personal information since it is my birthday week - you are getting the 411 on me, Christie Jones. One of the things that I am super passionate about is music. Since Thursdays I usually bring up a band as a conversational piece I chose to share my top 25 favorite musicians and bands. Making this list was so easy [although narrowing it down to only 25 wasn't!]- and unlike Monday's post I am actually ranking them in order! 1. David Bazan
