Watch out, boys—the ladies are making a huge statement in music more than ever. Whether it be pop or country, women are constantly showing they’re a force to not mess around with. April Kry is just one of the many ladies who is using her voice (literally) to wow anyone who hears her. According to Kry, strong role models such as Reba and Martina McBride have left a mark on her in a remarkable way. You might be familiar with her latest single “While We’re Young” spinning on Radio Disney and RD Country, but do you really know her? We chatted with this talented artist to learn more about her upbringing, her recent move to Nashville, and what it’s like being a woman in country.
The word “retro” can represent different time periods to different people. For Justin Bryte, one-half of the New York based retro-pop duo Fly By Midnight, it’s license to draw from all eras of music to help craft their sound.
“It’s vague in the sense that it doesn’t limit us to a certain time period of inspiration,” Bryte said. “I think retro is really kind of paying a homage to any prior music, and that’s kind of what we do. We take inspiration from previous generations of music and kind of put this modern twist on it.”
You may be familiar with the 2007 science-fiction horror film, The Mist, based off Stephen King’s famous book, but this year, Spike TV launched a new television series dedicated to the novel.

With so many reincarnations today of historic cult classic films and books, it’s hard to know about every rising actor out there.
Historical movies based on real events have the tendency to evoke at least one of the following feelings: sad, happy, grateful, thankful, intrigued, or frustrated. There are plenty more to add to the list, but at the end of the day, these movies recount the stories of so many brave (or maybe not so brave) individuals before us.
Never judge a book by its cover, or in this case, never judge the personality of an actor by the personalities of their characters. This altered expression goes well with actor Justin Prentice, who currently stars in the Netflix drama 13 Reasons Why as the cruel and unaware high school bro, Bryce. In reality, however, Prentice is a considerate and passionate person who knows how to research his roles to provide his best performances to the characters he portrays.
