The country label BIG MACHINE RECORDS, along with Mötley Crüe records and Eleven Seven Music, have announced the release date of NASHVILLE OUTLAWS: A TRIBUTE TO MÖTLEY CRÜE and we'll get to hear a list of country bands and artists doing filthy things to classic metal songs on July 8th. I'm not sure there's any part of this that sounds like a good idea. I seriously doubt anyone has ever been listening to a Crue song and said to themselves "This could use more twang." Good for the Crue for grabbing a bunch of new publishing money, but I can't say I'm excited about it. I submit to you exhibit #1:
Here's the track listing:
- RASCAL FLATTS - "Kickstart My Heart"
- FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE - "If I Die Tomorrow"
- LEANN RIMES - "Smokin' In The Boys Room"
- JUSTIN MOORE - "Home Sweet Home"
- CASSADDE POPE WITH ROBIN ZANDER - "The Animal In Me"
- AARON LEWIS - "Afraid"
- BIG & RICH - "SOS"
- SAM PALLADIO AND CLARE BOWEN - "Without You"
- ELI YOUNG BAND - "Don't Go Away Mad"
- LAUREN JENKINS - "Looks That Kill"
- THE CADILLAC THREE - "Live Wire"
- THE MAVERICKS - "Dr. Feelgood"
- BRANTLEY GILBERT - "Girls, Girls, Girls"
- GRETCHEN WILSON - "Wild Side"
- DARIUS RUCKER - "Time For Change"
You know what was awesome? The Hayseed Dixie tribute to AC/DC! This Crue thing I think is taking itself a little too seriously.
