Neal McCoy’s New Single is Remake of “Kaw-Liga” [Video]

I first became familiar with the Hank Williams’ country classic “Kaw-Liga” during our Goldie’s Survivor contest.  One of the highlights of that series was our Longest Note Immunity Challenge, in which contestants were all forced to sing the same big note from the same big song and see who could hold it the longest.  While Martina McBride’s “A Broken Wing” was a our go-to song, we did change it up occasionally and, one season, used “Kaw-Liga.”  I loved that song.  The crowd loved it.  Our Goldie’s Survivor contestants loved it.  And, guess what?  It’s back!

Yep!  “Kaw-Liga” is Neal McCoy’s brand new single.  Here’s the official video . . .

“Kaw-Liga” was co-written by Hank Williams and Fred Rose and was recorded, by Hank, in 1952.  It was released after his death (early 1953) and spent an astounding 14 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Country Chart.  It’s flipside, “Your Cheatin’ Heart” wasn’t too shabby either.  It spent 6 weeks at #1.

Over the decades, “Kaw-Liga” has been covered by a lot of country music artists.  Artists like Johnny Cash, Charley Pride, Loretta Lynn and more.  But now, in 2013, it’s getting yet another reboot.  This time by Neal McCoy!

Sing it with me . . . Kaw-Ligaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!
