First off... a special thank you to the HOST of this musical blog hop!
What happened? Who won?
Lionel recorded this original in 1987 with Alabama. Twenty-five years later, in 2012, Lionel recorded it with Little Big Town! I had a lot of fun with this battle. Of course, either way, Lionel is the big winner. For a few days the two were tied at four apiece. Then it seems the "lightness" of the second, and most recent recording moved ahead quickly! And I mean quickly and over! My vote went to Lionel with Alabama but it was a "done deal,' as they say.
Which band shares the praise for the day?
Lionel Richie with Little Big Town @ 8 votes
Lionel Richie with Alabama @ 6 votes
CONGRATULATIONS LITTLE BIG TOWN!
