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.

I convulsed. I heaved. I then made the mistake of playing "Proud Mary." I should have avoided those "Thunderbolts of long duration", for these songs sure seemed alot long than they were. Christ Almighty. (08-08-2002)

EVEN I play guitar better than this guy. If this loser ever had the nerve to get even two miles close to Nashville, he'd have been tied to a cross and burned. Notice how he changes key TWICE before they even start singing? (05-24-2002)

I grew up listening to Merl Haggart, Buck Owens, Jim Reeves, Patsy Cline, Kitty Wells, Loretta Lynn, and many more. What is Loretta Lynn up to these days. I can remember liking her because she always looked like a 'lady'. I don't remember her ever looking painted or unreal. I didn't care for country music much, but I liked her because she sang about real things in life. Anyway someone could get information out about her? I look forward to some kind of response!
Thank you for taking the time to read and post this!
