It is a great great song. However I did not become totally transfixed until I heard Kacey Musgraves perform a live version of it in London at C2C a few years ago. Unfortunately I was not there that year and only heard it on the radio, and sadly the "play again" of that broadcast disappeared after a while leaving only some crappy phone-recorded versions from live concerts on You Tube. I sustained myself on these for a few years until Brooks and Dunn released a new album of their older work featuring other artists - Reboot. Incredibly Neon Moon featuring good ol' KM was on it, and my family have been suffering ever since. I would not want others to miss out on their experience, so here are both the original and rebooted versions for your delectation.
Well, I much prefer the KM version. I like female vocalists anyway, but the nearest I get to country is Alison Krauss. Although my musical tastes run along a very different track to yours by the looks of it, you'll be pleased to know that in the 1990s I attended a concert (on the South Bank) by AK and Union Station. They were brilliant.ReplyDelete
See, I'm not a total heathen.
Wow! Really, wow! I am astonished actually.Delete
Alison Krauss has a lovely voice as I'm sure you know, I listen to her a lot, both solo and with Union Station.
