‘Rock of Ages’ Misfires; They Should’ve Asked Chad

Julianne Hough is a beautiful, ambitious young actress who appears to have decided to leave country music behind and pursue a career in Hollywood. I can tell by her performance in the miscalculated Rock of Ages that she will one day get there. This film, however, just isn't the springboard.

Adele’s “Someone Like You”: Chad’s YouTube Cover of the Week [Video]

Singer/songwriter Adele has become an international sensation.  Her CD, 21, which was essentially a "break-up" album, has sold ridiculous amounts of copies because folks everywhere are connecting to and relating to her lyrics.  Last week, video from Dierks Bentley's CMT Unplugged show surfaced and included his version of Adele's hit song "Set Fire to the Rain."  So, that inspired me to scope out YouTube for some more country takes on the Brit's songbook.  And I quickly found this!  It's Wyatt Turner's version of Adele's gut-wrenching ballad "Someone Like You."  This, without question and hesitation, is my "Country-Fried" YouTube Cover of the Week.

Call Me Maybe: Chad’s Country-Fried Cover of the Week [Video]

About six weeks ago, I started working out every weekday.  And, to help me get motivated, I grabbed my IPod and loaded it up with what I consider to be "workout" songs.  Upbeat.  fun.  Pep in their step.  The first track on my playlist is the song "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen.  (It's the perfect song to run 6 mph to on the treadmill!)  You've probably heard it.  It recently reached #1 in seven countries and peaked at #4 on the Billboard chart here in the U.S.  When I first heard it, I told Jaclyn that she needed to give it a listen.  Something about "Call Me Maybe" just screamed out for a "country-fried" version and I thought Jaclyn's band could give it a cool, country-flavored twist.   Apparently, I'm not the only one who thought the tune had some bacon grease in it.  Check this out!  I found an awesome version by a young lady named Emma Rowley, who sat down with her acoustic guitar and cranked it out.  Her version of "Call Me Maybe" is my "Country-Fried" YouTube Cover of the Week . . .

Jaclyn Ziplines at BBQ Festival [Video]

She certainly didn't WANT to do it.  And, I'll admit, she was sweating bullets and planning her last will and testament to Carsyn just thinking about it.  But, last Friday at the International BBQ Festival, Jaclyn faced one of her greatest fears . . . the ZIPLINE!  Despite all her reservations and the ridiculous scene she was making, Jaclyn eventually saddled up with our friends from Lexington-based NEW HEIGHTS and let er rip!  And, yep!  We had the video cameras rolling to capture every graceful second.  WATCH!

The Edge of Glory: Chad’s YouTube Cover of the Week [Video]

It's time again for another installment of Chad's "Country-Fried" YouTube Cover of the Week.  And this week's selection comes to us from aspiring country music singer/songwriter Tim Foust, who recently rounded up his band to take a crack at (of all things) Lady Gaga!   And, NO, I'm not kidding.  Yeah, I realize that, on paper, this sounds completely absurd.  But you have to listen to this.  These guys kill her song "The Edge of Glory" and give it a driving bluegrass/country twist that's completely unpredictable and refreshing.   Take Tim's booming bass voice, layer some high harmonies on it and let the guitars rip and you've got some Gaga we're . . . well . . . gaga for!

Tomorrow: Chad’s “Country-Fried” YouTube Cover of the Week x2 [Video]

While combing the web for this week's edition of Chad's "Country-Fried" YouTube Cover of the Week, I came across two different versions of Chris Young's "Tomorrow" that caught my ears and eyes.  I was trying to decide which version would make the cut, but I just couldn't make a choice.  Both deserve to be seen and heard, albeit for different reasons.  So, this week I present to you two very unique covers of the song.  The first features a pair of brothers who love to down Coors Light while they sing.  The second features an apsiring country singer and his friends, who are masters of dorm-room harmony.  Check these out!
