When I saw Joe Nichols was covering the classic, “Baby Got Back” for his new album I had to do a double-take. Joe took the song and made it country as can be from a sound standpoint. Funny thing is, so many of the folks that hate modern country music will point to a cover like this and say it’s more “country” than much of the “top” country songs today. In many ways, they’re not wrong. Not sure the thought process here, but I could see Joe saying “I’m gonna cover one of the most ridiculous songs of all time, and make it country as dirt.” He did.
This is fun.
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
