    My list of songs I'd like to hear Carrie cover

    One of the things I love about Carrie is her ability to sing any genre of music you give her. Never have I seen a female country artist take a song by someone else and perfotm it just as well as the original artist.
    I may have posted this before, but here's a list of songs I'd like to hear her sing:

    "How Can I Help You Say Goodbye?" (Patty Loveless)
    "It's Your Call" (Reba McEntire)
    "The Change" (Garth Brooks)
    "It Matters to Me" (Faith Hill)
    "Live Like You Were Dying" (Tim McGraw)
    "I Would've Loved You Anyway" (Trisha Yearwood)
    "Baby's Gotten Good at Goodbye" (George Strait)
    "Where've You Been" (Kathy Mattea)
    "Anyway" (Martina McBride)
    "When Love Finds You" (Vince Gill)

    This isn't limited to country, how about these?
    "Part of Your World" from Disney's The Little Mermaid
    "10,000 Reasons" (Chris Tomlin)
    "Shout to the Lord" (Darlene Zchech)
    "Held" (Natalie Grant)

    I don't listen to pop music, but I'm sure she could nail a Celine Dion song, perhaps an Adele tune as well. I think she would do really well at CCM/worship songs.

    That medley she did at CMT Artists of the Year last year was amazing, and that gave me the idea.

    Carrie needs to cover She Used To Be Mine by Sara Bareilles. She would murder it

    For a start, I'd like to hear her do something traditional (not Nashville neo-traditional, or Saving Country Music traditional - just plain traditional, with a touch of progression in the delivery and the music). Maybe something like this:

    Carrie is very eclectic in her musical choices - but she knows where she shines, and generally doesn't stray too far from that. For that reason, I wouldn't expect full blown Texas Blues, like this, from her - but she does show influence from that style in some of her work - and I'd just like to hear a little more of it.

    If she wanted to do a cover of a song by a male artist, in my view one of the greatest male voices on the Oklahoma/Texas scene was Jimmy LaFave. No sadly no more, she could play tribute to his legacy

    Carrie has been moving in the direction of showing more personal emotion in her work - and that is something I'd like her to continue. "Heartbeat" was an example - but perhaps a little less than I would have hoped for - maybe something more like this in future:

    Well, she did cover Trisha Yearwood last night. She and Kelsea Ballerini sang a duet of "Walkaway Joe," a 1992 hit for the wife of Garth Brooks, and they sounded great together!

    Just thought of a few "more:

    "Whatever You Say" by Martina McBride
    "There You'll Be" by Faith Hill
    "What Hurts the Most" by Rascal Flatts
    "Young Love (Strong Love)" by the Judds
    "On the Side of Angels" by LeAnn Rimes
    "Till You Love Me" by Reba
    "Believe" by Brooks & Dunn

    I've always imagined her singing a song like Martina McBride's "Anyway". Other than that:

    "The Prayer" with Andrea Bocelli (How has this not happened yet?)
    "Home" by Michael Buble
    "Like We Never Loved At All" by Faith Hill
    "How Do I Live" LeAnn Rimes
    "Endless Love" with Lionel Richie (and since he's a judge on AI now, it would be the perfect time)
    "You're Still the One" Shania Twain
    "Paper Roses" by Marie Osmond (Would be great to hear a cover of an older song like this)
    "Over the Rainbow" Judy Garland (and more songs from musicals)
    "It Is Well With My Soul" Hymn (She would sing this with the passion I wish she'd have more of)
    "You Ain't Woman Enough" by Loretta Lynn (I NEED this cover)
    "Bleeding Love" by Leona Lewis
    "Memory" Elaine Paige/Cats (especially when she gets to the bridge)
    "Georgia Rain" by Trisha Yearwood
    "Never Enough"/"Million Dreams" from The Greatest Showman
    "I Dreamed a Dream" Les Miserables
    "Bridge Over Troubled Water " by Simon and Garfunkel (Perfect as a faith song or not)

    There are so many styles I wish she'd sing and songs to cover I can't even think of all of them right now. But, this is just a few. As well as duets with Taylor Swift, Michael Buble, Josh Groban, Alan Jackson and more.

    I'd like to hear her sing "Amazing Grace" a capella. Or any hymn for that matter.

    What uptempo songs would you like to hear her sing? I know she can nail a ballad but her versatility proves she is so much more than a power ballad singer.
