Nashville Country Singers

Country singers butchering the Hits of '69.

I've heard some good singers occasionally screw up a word or two in a cover song, but "Hits of '69" by the Nashville Country Singers takes the cake. Apparently, nobody bothered to give these folks copies of the lyrics to the songs they were expected to sing. Combine that with flat music and off-key vocals and you have what was certainly one of the most exciting new albums of the year.

Check out how the Country Singers butcher two of my favorite songs. On "Aquarius", the moon is no longer in the seventh house, but the serpent's house. Then the phrase "no more falsehoods or derisions" somehow becomes -- get this -- "thunderbolts of long duration". Whoa! But that's nothing compared to what they do to "Proud Mary". Incredibly, they don't even sing the phrase "Proud Mary" once throughout the entire song. Among other flubs, these guys "seen a lotta plays in Memphis" and "Humped a lotta grain in New Orleans". I don't know what they were taking in Nashville back in 1969 but I sure want some for my next party.

Just got hold of a copy (vinyl, of course) of "Okie From Muskogee": The Nashville Country Singers ft Glenn Walker perform the hits of Merle Haggard...

Just can't wait for what will hit the fan.

Now country style for me is Drive-By Truckers or Joe Henry the now side, that is. Or why not admit the masters: John R Cash, and last but not least, Hank Williams.

One underrated album btw, is Kenny Price singing Don Gibson. A hard buy. Vinyl: Do not accept any substitutes. But get that.

Growing up, my family has always listened to country music. I am now a grown married woman and my views on country music hasn't changed. I recently made a trip to Ohio to visit some family, and we stayed at a place called the Motor Lodge. My husband and I stumbled upon a board of upcoming artist to perform there. We decided to go down one night and listen to a country singer named, Rorey Wesney. This guy was absolutely AMAZING! his voice was a gift from God! A very talented artist. He sang one of his songs: Love me, Love my Dog. LOVED IT! Apparently it is a hit on one of their country music radio stations. I reviewed his page on myspace and listened to some of his other songs, and this guy has some major talent! We will definately be looking to see if he will be playing when we come in again!

Nashville Singers are now Gods on my Mnt Olympus.
They wrapped around "Proud Mary" and made it their own. "Aquarius" made me wet myself. Not really. But it could of. They took a few liberties with a few lyrics, true. Gods can do that. Yeah. (01-31-2008)
