Do you ever wish that a country singer would cover one of your favorite pop songs? I'd like to hear someone tackle Richard Marx's "Endless Summer Nights." or James Taylor's "Never Die Young." Those are two songs that I think would translate well with a little bit of twang.
Which pop songs do you think should be covered by country artists?
Whatever happened to Gary Allan? I remember the guy once carried the torch for Bakersfield/neo-traditional country music, but when I saw him open for Kenny Chesney earlier this month in San Francisco, he was more Rock than Buck (Owens). Oh well, happens to the best of them, I guess.
A hidden gem on Blake Shelton's The Dreamer album is "In My Heaven." I just found earlier tonight that Mark Wills also recorded the song.
