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.

I always thought so too, Paula, but that hasn't stopped many (Megadeth's god-awful version of the Sex Pistols' "Anarchy in the UK" comes to mind). (01-07-2003)

Paula Small says:

I love Kenny Chesney's new song A Lot Of Things Different. It has so much meaning. Kenny is the hottest thing in Nashville. I love his new CD No Shoes No Shirt No Problems. He puts his heart and soul into his music. Keep up the good work. Wish I could meet Kenny in person. (12-30-2002)

Tim (luape@aol.com) says:
The morals of fans have allowed the music to cater to what they want, GARBAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The last of country singers died with the likes of Marty Robbins among others. The fans dictate what is put on the market. Don't blame the industry. Blame the tone deaf fans that think anyone that can smash the musical instruments and scream can scam the people with what they call music.
Wake up deaf world. let us start tryng to make MUSIC again. (12-30-2002)

I LOVE TO LISTEN TO COUNRTY MUSIC.
IT PUTS ME IN A GOOD MOOD ALL THE TIME, WHEN EVER I PUT ON COUNTRY I WILL BE IN A GOOD MOOD. I WISH FAITH HILL WILL DIVORCE TIM SO WE CAN GET MARRIED, BUT I KNOW THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. I CAN ONLY DREAM ABOUT MARRING FAITH HILL. I WISH I COULD HAVE HER HAS A MEMBER OF MY FAMILY, SO I COULD BACKSTAGE PASSES TO ALL OF HER CONCERTS AND I COULD BE RELATED TO TIM AS A UNCLE. I THINK THAT WOULD BE SO SWEET, BUT THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. SO THERES GOES MY DREAM. (12-06-2002)

I love to listen to country music, it puts me in a good mood. I listen to country when i get off from work. I listen to country on the way going to school with the windows all down going slow to get a parking space, they get made, but then they will get over it. I love to listen to Faith Hill and Tim Mcgraw. I could listen to them both all day long even when i am in school. I also love to listen to Kenney Chensey. 12/06/02 (12-06-2002)

Mary Ann says:
Lots of the female singers have started dressing as if they should be on a street corner somewhere. What has happened to country singers anyway. I don't watch country music shows any more because of the disgusting way they dress. (11-21-2002)
