Hoe-Down on the Dance Floor
I love when this type of stuff happens. Give me a good ol, completely left field, dance cover version of a song anyday, as long as it's done well that is (unlike some others like Kim Sozzi's "Alone").
Ths is definitely on the top of the good covers list. Wynonna, and we all know her, famous for being one of the Judds (mother Naomi and sister Ashley) has had an extensive recording career from the early 90's all the way till today.
On her last CD (pictured here) "What The World Needs Now Is Love", she covered Foreigner's "I Want To Know What Love Is" and consented to a dance remix of it, courtesy of Piper. It turned out to be a smart move for the Juddster because it peaked at number 12 on Billboard's Radio Monitor Hot Dance Airplay chart in 2005 and the album itself went to number 1 on the US country charts!
Btw: Did you know that her real name is NOT Wynonna Judd? She was born Christina Claire Ciminella, her name sake being sister Ashley's biological father. Her real father, Charles Gordon, passed away in 2000. Mama Judd sure got around huh?
