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.

Yes!!! Kenny Chesney is the greatest. Funny comeing from a guy. But I have a question, What do I do if I fall in love with the Tin Man? Being a girl who has barricaded her heart, I guess because she's scared that it will be broken. Any help ou gals come up with will be great. Thx for anything.

I am 15, turnin 16 June 26 and on June 22 I have tickets with my two best friends Nate and Whit to go see KENNY CHESNEY in concert!!!!!!I love him incredibly. I'm listenin to him as I speak. My ma and I have been "TOTAL COUNTRY" for as long as I can remember. All country songs have stories that illustrate experiences in people's lives and it makes the music much more touchin and understandable. Without country music our world would turn psycho. I'm an ultimate country girl and country music fan! Cowgirl Up!!!!! (05-20-2003)
