Ok, perhaps you're wondering who Rascal Flatts is. It is a band. I was just downloading some itunes and saw that they had recorded "Life is a Highway," which was a favorite of mine back in the day. It's horrible. Absolutely horrible (or at least the ten second itune clip was). The twangy country version is never better. Case in point is Dolly Parton's recording of "I Will Always Love You" versus Whitney Houston's. Maybe Dolly was first, but there is no comparison. Another less screeching example is "When the Stars Go Blue." If you've only heard Tim McGraw's version, check out Ryan Adams's. I know there are more examples of these musical abominations, but that's all for now.
