Katy Perry Goes Country (Sorta)!

| Filed under: Music MinuteKaty Perry


Katy Perry is a talented, talented artist! She's not just singing and dancing up there, ya know. She actually writes music!

Take this demo for example. It's a fusion of country and pop with some kickass lyrics! She wrote it back in the day for another artist to pick it up (and sure enough, Jessie James got it).

We like Jessie's released version, but we're really diggin' this original recording and we think you will too! Press the play BUTTon and tell us what U think!!

    like the song, but I'd watch that video over and over just to see those yummy outfits again.

    Who knew a California gurl like Katy could crank out this country-pop crossover smash? Since Jessie James is a flop, she should do a song like this for her next album. I'm guessing she isn't taking that break to start a family this year as was reported last month.

    She will be passed around the Rappers for a year or two and then she will move to Country or Gospel. Sad…

    Tasty little tune. Lots of dynamics, change-ups, infectious, and she sells it vocally. Nice.

    Perez, every time you praise Katy Perry, you essentially wage war on the intellectual analysis of music. You can like Katy Perry all you want. If she's a guilty pleasure for you, knock yourself out. Please grow up and learn some perspective, though. Yes, I own a ton of music by Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, U2, and Sheryl Crow. I like them a lot for a variety of reasons, but I'm not about to make them out to be musical prodigies. Musicians like Sarah Chang, Renee Fleming, Sabine Meyer, Emmanuel Pahud, and Yo-Yo Ma are extraordinarily talented and musically educated. Katy Perry is fortunate to be popular among a lot of [mostly tween, teen, and early-20's] people, but that doesn't mean she's one of the most talented people in the world. She's not even close to the top 50% of talented musicians out there.

    I LOVE this song, and I am not just saying that because I am one of Katy's biggest fans! I love Katy Perry, because she has such a great voice, she is creative, and most of all she writes her own music! She is SOOOO good at making a song catchy and fun! I would do anything to see her live!!! That is one of my dreams! She is an amazing pop star, and now she is written an amazing country song! She can do no wrong in my opinion! Thanks for posting this Perez! If only I could put it on my ipod :)

    Re: sohaveiforyou83 – Sadly, I don't know who the second set of artists you named are…but now I will be sure to look them up! (Except Yo-Yo Ma I do know). Sad that this talent goes unrecognized for the most part while we hear about so many of these marginally talented people who have popularity going for them more than talent. Although I do think that Christina Aguilera can be considered a vocal prodigy, and the others are quite talented too. As for Katy Perry, her music is fun and I like it for a certain mood, but I completely agree with what you're saying. Plus think of all the popular artists who are soo much less talented that those you named - some simply awful.

    Re: Emiller – free youtube to mp3 converter…lol…you could record it and put it on your ipod that way.

    I quite like her singing this, for a fun mood.

    Re: ceeeee – Thanks for your response! I appreciate when people actually have civil responses in Internet comment sections! I agree a lot with what you said, too. And yes, in a way, I consider Christina Aguilera to be something of a vocal prodigy. I wouldn't put her in the same boat as Renee Fleming, but I consider some of Christina's live performances to be some of the most moving performances I've ever seen. (Her performance of "It's A Man's Man's Man's World" at the James Brown tribute for the Grammys is permanently ingrained in my head!) I would like to see some cleaning-up happen in popular music, and Adele might be helping to change the landscape for a while. What I will give Katy Perry for is singing live, to the best of my knowledge, in a time when lip synching oftentimes goes unquestioned.

    This is a lot better than the shite off Teenage Dream, maybe she should have stuck with this sound rather than her usual bubblegum (and eminently disposable) music. I too give her props for singing live (no matter how badly on occasion) but her music just doesn't stick for me - I like most of her songs for a very brief period (a few weeks at best) and then I never want to hear them again ;o)
