Has anyone been watching this? It's on GAC. It is basically new artists performing older songs. Josh Gracin did a cover of 'The Dance'. I'm not a big fan of covers of Garth songs, but they didn't change the tune of the words, so I guess you could say it was OK.


Garth did it better :)!

It's not ok with me. I don't want to hear anyone else sing The Dance.

Josh did an okay version..he's just not Garth. Hubby enjoyed the program mostly for the two dresses Mrs Brooks (especially the red/black one) wore during her performances. ;)

hmm- didnt' see it, but I'm not (usually) too keen on garth covers- not that there can't be a good one (hearing Dan Roberts sing Wolves or The beaches of cheyenne- great songs... along w/ the cowboy song!) but well, THe Dance, it's kinda well sacred... (to me at least) No one does it like garth..

I think Josh Gracin did a good job of "The Dance," but no one will ever do it like the man from Yukon, Oklahoma who's sold more records than anyone except the Beatles.

Kenny did a great job but I thought the guy who sang it for Asleep At The Wheel did a pretty great job. As for cover songs, I don't like a lot of the versions people do of Garth's but I have to say, Garth is one of the best cover artists I have ever heard. He can take someone else's song and make you forget their version.

Yes .. Garth can make you forget... like he did with Shameless :) I would love Garth to make a cover album.
I have always wondered why Garth never put American Pie or You May Be Right on any of His albums since he performed those songs so many times in his concerts.
