    Rascal Flatts Covering IKYW For New Album

    Rascal Flatts recently posted the tracklist for their new album and it contains a cover of IKYW. It should be interesting, although I'm skeptical about the arrangement they'll put to it.

    Cant wait to hear it. I still think Carrie and her team could have hit on a huge song.....

    ^^ That's the truth. This is the second time someone picked it to be on their cd and others singers has covered as well. It wasn't even single.

    I am looking forward to hearing it. It could have a nice melody with a male voice on it. Hope it is not a hot mess, but I will give it a chance.

    I can't believe this is going to be known as a RF song :-( This should have been a single for Carrie.

    I listened to it, it is okay, not like Carrie (as Grady Smith said about her, you can hear the emotions in her voice)

    I think overall it is an ordinary song that Carrie made extraordinary, and as much as I love rascal Flatt's they just don't have that ability like Carrie does.

    It's still a great song, but there is nothing special about their version.

    It's good, but not Carrie good. I'll be so mad, though, if they get to release it as a single and she didn't.

    They do a decent job- no hate. But nowhere on the level of Carrie of course. That is her siren song. She slays it in every way imaginable. But I am not hating this version.

    I hate that "you said you'll change" line, it just doesn't sound good. (Didn't Kelly change it to "you said you'll change" too?)

    It's OK. Can't imagine why they would even want to attempt to sing a song Carrie has already done. IKYW is a wonderful torch song and Carrie's beautiful rendition makes me so lonely, sad and emotional. Only a guy like Frank Sinatra could do justice to this song (remember "Set 'em Up Joe?").

    Doesn't make sense. She's sitting there waiting for him to show up or call. And, yes, Kelly did make that change -- didn't like her flat version, either. I could shoot SN for not releasing IKYW.

    Wish SN would have released it as single. This one like other covers is alright. Love the way Carrie sings IKYW so much. I feel it so much when she sings it.

    Not hating... but, it sounds like a different song. Carrie's is haunting and longing. RF version is a good song, but not nearly the emotional version of Carrie's.

    To me it almost sounds like a completely different song with RF singing it. There are so many songs on Carries that should have been made into singles. Several people have recorded this song of hers.

    I still think Kris Thomas' cover is the best COVER. But no ne sings it like Carrie. He GETS the emotion though
