Sometimes music crosses over from one genre to another and it’s awesome. Personally I’ve always been a big fan of cover songs. In the late 90′s and early 2000′s it was punk covers. On YouTube it is often a cool piano or ukelele cover. And then there are the (sometimes brilliant) karaoke performances.
But now I’ve found a new fav… in country music!
Little Big Town has been one of my favourite country acts for the last few years. Their 4 part vocals are always smooth and fresh. Their songs make me want to sing along. And they’re a pretty good looking bunch. And now they are covering songs from all over the muscial spectrum in Scattered, Smothered and Covered.
Scattered, Smothered and Covered is a series of YouTube videos that show some very talented people singing some pretty good songs.
As of now there are 8 videos in the series and while I can’t really tell you which is my favourite, I can tell you that I have a top 3.
“Moves Like Jagger” – Maroon 5 feat. Christina Aguilera. Scattered, Smothered, and Covered
“I Want You Back” – Jackson 5. Scattered, Smothered & Covered
“Born This Way” – Lady Gaga Scattered, Smothered, Covered
