Single Review: Joey + Rory - Freebird

16 February 2009 2 Comments

Joey + Rory - FreebirdIt is always tough to do cover songs, especially when that cover song is one of the most famous songs in music history. When I first saw the title of Joey+Rory’s new single I thought that it was just using the same title but once the song started and I heard the familiar chords from the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic, “Freebird,” I knew they were in trouble.

The song is of course just a cover song but slowed down to a pace that puts you to sleep. After Joey + Rory’s success of “Cheater Cheater” I thought that the second single would be ballad or other traditional country song off the album that would help them establish their niche in country music but the cover song just threw me off. Joey’s voice is slowed down to a pace where she cannot truly show off the vocals that made their first single and album overall a success. There is not much left to say about the latest single from Joey+Rory other than some songs are not supposed to be covered, especially if you are not going to do it the right way.

Rating: ★½☆☆☆

    These two have just kind of seemed corny/gimmicky to me with the outfits and all of that. I thought a few songs were cool that i listened to but it really didnt do much for me. I looked this song up on youtube and it is terrible and a discgrace to skynyrd. When people yell freebird at a concert hopefully they dont want this version.
