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 Amber and I'm 15 years old, I'll be 16 on June 23, 2003. I live in Greenville, PA and I would like to thank all the female and male country music artists for working so hard. I was into hard rock before I started to liten to country and now I love it. It's so inspirational and can lift people's spirits when they are down. My mom found out about a month ago that she has cancer and It's really hard to wake up every day and see that the person I love is dying right before my eyes and there's nothing I can do to stop it. I listen to all my country cd's that I have and they cheer me up and give me the confedence I need to go on. My favorite song is Martina Mcbride's "Concrete Angel" it's so touching and it helps me. Thanks again to Martina and the rest of the country artists out there.(Your greatly appriciated.)

I have grown up listening to country music. I love Wynonna, Dolly, and Jo Dee. Wynonna and Dolly are true divas! They are so talented and will live forever. Jo Dee Messina is a wounderful singer, she has a beautiful powerhouse voice that will some day rule Nashville. (04-04-2003)
