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.

Hey guys,
Thanks to all of you who responded to my inquiry about "8 days on the road". It turns out I had the wrong title, it is "6 days on the road". It was first recorded by Dave Dudley way back yonder then more recently, Sawyer Brown.
I appreciate all who helped me find the title and singer.

I opened up for Terry Clark in Beach,North Dakota and I must say all who don't know what it's like performing pro, it's not easy. so before you knock people down, call 'em a fag or whatever do it yourself,and we'll see if sarcasm gets you anywhere,most likely you'll be the getting talked about. so don't critisize others that make a hell of a lot more money than you do.
