    Well if you are looking for another example that today’s so-called country singers cannot hold a candle to previous generations, here it is. Embarrassingly bad. What was this guy thinking?

      I usually agree with you Ken, but here I think you are being a little unfair.

      “Embarrassingly bad” – far from it, just not as good as Seals’ original

        Perhaps. But why choose a song that does not match your vocal capabilities? If you can’t nail the yodel what’s the point of attempting that particular song. Dan had plenty of other songs that Jake could have chosen that wouldn’t have spotlighted his obvious vocal limitations.

          Sorry, but that was pretty bad — and he knew he wasn’t able to hit those higher notes so he probably should have picked a different song.

          You two (not PWD) are all wet. Jake Owen did a great job here. Admittedly, he can’t hit the high notes like Dan Seals–(Who can?)
          He didn’t release this as a record. It was a live performance on a radio show meant as a tribute to an artist who just died and who he admires. His emotion seemed genuine and it seems that the people who were there were touched by and enjoyed the performance. I couldn’t help but enjoy the performance viewing and hearing it on my computer.
