What do you listen to when you’re the founder and creative force behind one of the world’s leading lifestyle brands and the entire globe has gone into panic mode?

When you’re Kendra Scott, who launched her now billion-dollar jewelry company in Austin in 2002, you put Texas classics on repeat. “I’m a firm believer that while we’re staying strong and staying in to keep our community safe, music is a great way to keep the fun going in your home,” says Scott.
“I’ve been listening to lots of upbeat tunes with a fun and playful mood, perfect for dancing around the living room with my family while we’re all at home together! Listen in, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Xo, Kendra”

1. “Diane,” CAM

CAM will always hold a special place in my heart. I’ll never forget the night she serenaded us with this song on the night we launched the Kendra Scott Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute at UT Austin last September – I get chills just thinking about it! 

2. “Beyond,” Leon Bridges

An easy listening, could play on repeat all day kind of song. Perfect for slow dancing around the kitchen with my sweet husband!

3. “Cowboy Take Me Away,” Dixie Chicks

I mean, you just can’t beat the classics! I can’t help but smile every time this one comes on.

The Dixie Chicks released “Cowboy Take Me Away” in 1999. Gaslighter, the band’s eighth studio album and first in 14 years, is scheduled for release May 1. The album’s title track was released as the first single on March 4. Courtesy photo

4. “Light On,” Maggie Rogers

While she might not be a Texas girl, Maggie Rogers is a lady I love for not only her beautiful tunes, but her strong and inspiring personality. A favorite lyric from this one: “I’m still dancing at the end of the day.”

5. “Dancing in the Moonlight,” King Harvest

Another classic I’ve loved for years! This is one song that instantly gets me up and dancing, no matter what mood I’m in. 

6. “When I’m Gone,” Gary Clark, Jr.

I just love Gary Clark, Jr. He’s such a talented musician (and an Austin native!), and this song always lifts my spirits. The music is fun and jazzy, and the lyrics remind me to be thankful for the time we have as a family to be together.

7. “Love Is A Wild Thing,” Kacey Musgraves

My favorite lyric from this one: “Climbing over fences, blooming in the shadows, Places that you can’t see – Love is a wild thing.” What a beautiful song and a sweet reminder to look for love even in the most unlikely places, especially during these times of uncertainty.
