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.

Hello I'm Tiffany, 17 years old,and from Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. I am a Big country fan OF all kinds.I enjoy listening to the country singers sing. They inspire me very much, especially on sharing love with anyone. The Judds are one of my favorites, they inspire me very much.The whole Mother and daughter thing is great.I think this because of a personal experance. I dont have a mother to share things with or have those long talks with. I guess just knowing that they still have each other and singing together, is more than any child could ask for. (05-13-2004)
