Blake Poll: Darius Rucker Vs. Old Crow Medicine Show- ‘Wagon Wheel’ [POLL][VIDEOS]
So I noticed people either love or hate this new song from Darius Rucker. They don’t hate it because of the song, per say, but more because folks don’t think he did a good job with the remaking of it. So what do you think in this battle of a Blake Poll: Darius Rucker vs. Old Crow Medicine Show!
Ohh Hootie you’re the talk of the town, again!
Long Story Short: Darius Rucker’s new song has some hard core Old Crow Medicine
Show fan’s panties in a wad. They love their OCMS, which is understandable. They’re awesome! but what I’ve heard from most OCMS fans is that they DO NOT like Darius’ version of ‘Wagon Wheel’.
So here’s the dilemma, as there is with EVERY remade song: Do you like the original song so much that you can’t even think about liking a different version? or Can you appreciate a good song no matter who it is sung by?
Because, honestly, artists do it all the time.
LeAnn Rimes and Trisha Yearwood- ‘How Do I Live’
Fleetwood Mac and Dixie Chicks- ‘Landslide’
Kenny Chesney and Charlie Robison- ‘El Cerrito Place’
Patsy Cline and Garth Brooks- ‘I Go Out Walking After Midnight’
All of these are just a few examples I could think of off the top of my head and are all only a few compared to the long, long list they belong to of remade or redone songs.
So let’s get down to it! Listen to both and let us know what you think in this Blake Poll!
