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.

Hi! My name is Diane Klein country music scout from Nashville Tennessee and I was In North Dakota last weekend and the DSU colledge had a Country Jubilee show, just curious of what North Dakota had to offer, well to my suprise there was outstanding talent!!! But one person stood out from the rest as always, This man knew what it was like to feel a song while performing. I have been around pro's for more than 10 years, and Chad Conitz singing Toby Keith's American Soldier was as flawless as you get. I have a feeling that this man will take country music to another level. Thank You for your time, Diane Klein(Nashville Scout)
