Wait ..what? Pitbull and Ke$ha Release "Country" Collaboration? - 10/07/13
It's probably a stretch to say call this a "country collaboration". But the song, in the least, has some sort of "country influence"
Listen to this new song... then read. ((*As always some music contains material that may not be suitable for young children. Listen at your own risk*))
Yea, so, it's not country - AT ALL - but Pitbull's new song (featuring Middle Tennessees own pop star Ke$sha) certainly has "twang". Not really sure what he was going for? But it is "catchy" - or at least I think so!
I think it's funny that Avicii (a popular edm dj) got ALL KINDS of slack when he released "Wake Me Up" earlier this year and now not only is it one of the most played songs on radio, it seems that people are trying to follow in his footsteps in some capacity. EDM (electronic dance music) is one of the hottest genres out (see THIS story I did earlier this year) and country music sells .. combine the two with some well-known pop names and I guess you have ..... "Timber"?!?
While we have endless honky tonks in Nashville, we don't really have a country "dance club" .. like say my hometown region of Knoxville .. who has the famous Cotton Eyed Joes. So I wonder if we will be hearing "Timber" coming from any of the bars on Broadway?!
