    I received 3 text from different people last night as this was happening so I had to look it up this morning. I guess I'll have to be the odd man out here. As I was telling Austin earlier on FB, it was just ok to me. I listened a couple of times and it just didn't seem right or do much for me. But to be fair, I pretty much feel that way about any cover of an Eagles song.

    Bob Seger just tweeted that he'll be performing on the next show in a duet with the Swon Brothers.

    Ok, to start off, let me clear something up. I was told recently that the only time I post in here is to complain and criticize, so this is NEITHER. It's only MY opinion.

    Back in the mid 90's, Travis Tritt got a group of big-name country artists and recorded Common Threads, Songs of the Eagles, and we know the results of that album.

    Vince Gill did ICTYW and it was almost a perfect cover as his voice is similiar to TBS. Though I enjoy the album and all the covers, this one song is as close to flawless as it can get.

    Willie, have mercy on me<G>.
    So if you see me walking all alone, don't look back. I'm just on my way back home.

    I love Vince Gill, so it stands to reason I like his version of ICTYW. I didn't hear the one from last night, yet.

    And I am very THANKFUL that Travis did that for the obvious reason. I have never bought the album tho I've thought about it a couple of times but can't seem to bring myself to do it.

    I just went and listened to Vince's version of it on YouTube- not bad. I actually like it better than this one last night. But it's still not Timothy. I don't know how to explain it but these other 2 versions seem to be too "hard"? Timothy's voice is so soft and soothing so I think it's hard for anyone else to get it like that. Does that make sense?

    I love the Swon Brothers and I really liked their performance of 7BR a couple of weeks ago. But like TBF, I thought ICTYW was just ok, the harmonies were good, but the solo portions not so much, so ....
    TBF - you are not alone!

    And everyone was at my desk this morning wanting to know what I thought of the ICTYW performance since they know what a huge Eagles fan I am. After I told them it was ok, we played both the Swon Bros. & Eagles performances from YT. MY co-workers then could tell the difference. I know it is not fair to compare them but I had to show my co-workers what the song really sounds like. Timothy sings it so smooth - just like butter!! Now that song is going to be in my head ALL day!! So it will be a great day!!

    BTW one of my co-workers said ICTYW was one of his favorite songs but he didn't know it was an Eagles song! I will forgive him since he is so young but I am going to bring him some of my Eagles cds!

    I also posted 7 Bridges Road in there, which they did
    I am at work now so I can't transfer them over here!

    It makes sense to me, because that's what I thought, too. The guy has a good voice, but he didn't sing the song tenderly enough, like Timothy does.

    So I got curious and just went in and watched the video TK posted of 7BR and I'll say that was awesome! Obviously they are very talented but I think they could of picked a better Eagles song then ICTYW to do last night after hearing what they could do with 7BR. JMO.

    because Timothy B can not be replaced!!!


    Still they did better than the other two contestants. AND they must love the Eagles because they have done two of their songs!
