A Christmasy Friday the 13th brings to mind Jack Skellington, Tim Burton and Danny Elfman. But I've gone there a few times. I love the symbiotic relationship of Elfman and Burton. And Elfman with Disney's Buddy Baker and So Cal film industry. But...
Instead I've been thinking about the leap from songwriter version to pop version. A great song is a great song. I love Kacey Musgrave's writing. This is where I hope country goes. New twist on tradition.
And the wonderful treatment here for it's country pop release from Miranda Lambert... (and here's a great look a the great lyric). And yes, we all like the original better. Of course. But there's something to be said for the BIG PERSONALITY of a pop star. And that's what Lambert is. Somehow I'm sure Musgrave didn't mind a bit.
And here are a couple from Musgrave from her artist release for those interested.
