Thursday Thoughts - a Pet Peev

Why do some country singers have to turn good uplifting hymns into dirges?

I'm not particularly fussed by country music at the best of times but, while I was DJing at a local community radio station up in Queanbeyan, I have played a bit of it at the request of the listeners. Some songs come out not too bad but others come out real bad.

One of my favourite hymns is "How Great Thou Art" but I will not listen to a country version as country singer seem to want to slow it down as if that is going to make it more majestic or something. To me it destroys a good, uplifting hymn, turning it into a dirge.
