My apologies for my blatant stereotype…
So, I’ve been listening to the radio a lot lately and I’ve noticed something – former rock/pop/contemporary performers are now singing for the country crowd.
Jessica Simpson – Wasn’t she pop not too long ago? Did she turn country after she played Daisy for a spell?
Jewel – This is just a match made in heaven. I’ve always really liked Jewel’s music, but she seemed to have made the transistion into country seamlessly.
Darius Rucker – Ol’ Hooty himself. I’ve always been a fan of Hootie and the Blowfish (even though I didn’t always agree with the subject matter). The Man Beast is calling Shenanigans. He says Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It is a rewrite of Let Her Cry.
I heard a pop version of one Kelly Pickler’s songs. I’m not surprised. Shania Twain has been going back and forth between the country and pop/rock circuits for years.
Sometimes, it just works, ya know?
