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.

Dear I am seeking the help of the country music community,
My name is Michael carter.21 years old,I am asking you to help me with our upcoming meetings.This is my last year of Bible college in jamaica where I live.I minister as a lay evangelist here,of course not only me but many other wonderful men and women do a work here.
Sometimes I feel so alone , losing my grandma this year and before that losing my mother and father.But I know there is purpose here.Please pray for me-i preach around the country especially among pentecostals,presbyterian and catholics.i am hungering to see a greater anointing.I now live alone,my brother and sisters are abroad,they are also unsaved.Pray for me,I need to see a demonstration of God's kingdom here in my city,portmore .I have been seeking the Lord and asking him to just move in and grant me His love and power.
As this is my last year of Bible College and I am seeking to have a multiplied increase of God?s presence and glory on my life. Through the years I have been ministering out of what I received from my ministers but now as a young evangelist or exhorter, they are looking to me for God to speak.I have been praying and seking the Lord for my city.I have been instructed on this wise 1.\\To hold 2 citywide crusade.One with cal pierce from Spokane Healing Rooms and with Todd Bentley from Freshfire ministries.The other small street metings we will preach in them.The overall cost is over $10,000 U.S. dollars.
I am kindly asking for you to sponsor me to one of your meetings or to even sponsor a part of it. I really have no money, as I have been living on my own since my mom and dad?s death. Even if you are not given to send us the money you could purchase the airline tickets for the speaker and that would greatly mitigate the cost of the meetings.Please could you consider making this investment? My proper name is: Michael Augustus Carter. I have enclosed a picture of myself standing by a water pond.
I will have the support of my a couple pastors in the area and I am doing this this way beacause I believe this was birthed by a word receive from the Lord. Please help me. Even if it is for a day. Northwest, Continental, American Airlines, British Airways, Air Canada and Air Jamaica all fly from here daily. I just want to come to receive an impartation from God. Please help me. my telephone number is 876-896-8173.May God Bless you.

Hey, I just love country, it is my fav type of music, the type i can relate to the most. It talks about real life. My fav. country singer is Tim McGraw b/c if it wasn't for his song like Where the green grass grows, I wouldn't even know country music exsited. I don't think we should let his older songs fade away.
