oh boy, I have to say I'm torn on this one. I don't really know anything about DC or any of their music but I took a moment to listen to the link Alx left (thanks!) and there are parts of the DC version I actually like. I'm generally not a country music fan but the lead singer here has an amazing voice and parts of the harmonies are good too. Fancying myself as an ok singer, I find the DC version easier to sing along to However I prefer the mood and feel of the CH version and the way in which it builds to its crescendo.
slightly OT but does anyone know how much of a collaboration this was? Which parts did Neil write and which parts DC? Did one do music and the other do lyrics? I'm just curious. I'm surprised DC wouldn't acknowledge a collaboration, that's a bit rude.
