And that’s just some of what took place at the 2nd annual Brandi Carlile Girls Just Wanna Weekend at the Hard Rock Riviera resort in Mexico this past weekend. It starts with the music and extends to an ever-loving community and feeling that you can then carry on wherever you go. The photos tell the story:

“Follow… your heart and see where it may take you.”

“Don’t let the world outside there break you
They know not who you are inside
They never felt your yell
Don’t ever let them crack your shell.”

“As long as you’re beside me along the way
Going to make it through the night
And into the morning light.”

You should always let the sun go down on your anger
Let it burn you to sleep.”

“Because when you’re home, you’re already home.”

Brandi Carlile’s Girls Just Wanna Weekend 3 will take place February 3-7 at the Hard Rock hotel in Riveria Maya, Mexico. Visit for more information.
