After listening to the track, I don’t know that CMT will be knocking on her door but you never know. Lady Gaga has a great knack for keeping people interested and wanting more. Her second album is due out this May.

Here’s the original in all it’s glory:

OK OK… this is a close one, but the band comes through with their country flavored take on Cochrane’s classic.  Put me in a blue Ford F-150 and call me Dixie.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

So many artists have covered [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rihanna[/lastfm]’s “Umbrella” but when Taylor covered it…I thought it sounded like it could have been her song.  She’s also took a crack at Ri Ri’s “Take a Bow”…again sounds like signature Swift.

Love Reba’s take on [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beyonce[/lastfm]’s “If I Were a Boy”.  She definitely put her stamp on it and made it her own.  Check out Reba’s somewhat haunting video…love the never ending green train.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sugarland[/lastfm]’s  cover of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kings of Leon[/lastfm]’s “Sex On Fire” can be described in one word, AMAZING.  The group made up of Jennifer Nettles (vocals/piano) and Kristian Bush (guitar) is just beautifully stripped and executed.
