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.

Aquarius (Real Audio) Harmony and understanding... except for understanding of the lyrics to this song.
Proud Mary (Real Audio) Trust me, this is nothing to be proud of.

If you love country music or Southern Rock, then you should check out This guy is going to make it someday with or without the help of the labels. Just because he doesn't sing pop country or kiss ass doesn't mean that he shouldn't be heard!! (05-30-2005)

I would like to say. I grew up on country and i listen to it every day. My real dad use to sing us all kinds of country until he shot himself. So i would like the country music to keep playing so I can think of my father. I am 14 years old and I'm a very beautiful smart girl. Thats what my dad told me when i was 7. His last words were get in the car now. I love you daddy. Keep singing. (05-18-2005)
