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!
Just a short note, I would like to see some the old timers on the Grand Old Opry. Example Loratta Lynn, Stantler brothers just to name a few. I don't mean that the young singers we shouldn't here but we would like to know what ever happen to the ones that we grown up with what ever happen to them, just to let you know I just got my computer and haven't explored yet.
Take care. Donna form Michigan (02-22-2004)

Back before I grew my hair out (like them Hippys!) I used to sing some pretty mean country (an live pretty wild too). Now I just do the oldies and praise Jesus.

None of the kid thes day know what singin' Real Country is all about. They don't have no style like Hank W & the good ol' boys do (they all look like them dang Hippys with their long hair and frilly shirts). It a pity we don't get back to those kinda family values anymore.

Gimme old Patsy, Loretta or Tammy W. anyday! (02-20-2004)

Debbie Thomas (dyt2@netva.com) says:
Toby Keith is a down to earth good ole American guy who finally had the guts to say what so many other songwriters of the day just didn't have the gall to do. As he says, we live in a great big Disneyland and so many other countries are just down right jealous of our freedoms. When our country is bombed, what should we do? Not do anything and they'll do it again! I don't think so. Keep up the great work, Toby. Signed: Debbie Thomas, Marion, Virginia. (02-18-2004)
