What happens when a pop song crosses over country music? Will it be a hit or a miss? Whatever it is, country music versions still rule! Well, let’s take the following song as an example. “(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time on You” is a crossover hit of the American country music band Alabama. Originally, the song is a pop song recorded by American boy band NSYNC. While it is a hit for the boy band, it was given a different flavor by the country music band.
I will be presenting to you below the two versions of the song — the boy band’s original and the country music band’s cover. Watch and compare who performed it better? Share us your thoughts in the comment section.
An Original Pop Music
“(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time on You” is originally a popular song. Released as a single in 1998, the song was first recorded by American boy band NSYNC. It was the third single from their self-titled debut album.
It reached no. 2 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary and no. 8 on the Hot 100. In addition, it peaked at no. 30 on the Billboard Adult Top 40 while no. 5 on the Mainstream Top 40. At the end of the year, it ranked 45th on the Billboard Hot 100.
To note, it was the first song by the group to enter the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100.
Watch the original rendition of NSYNC.
A year after NSYNC released their original version of the song, country music band Alabama recorded theirs with backing vocal from the boy band. Alabama released it as a single from Twentieth Century, their 18th album.
The country version of the song went to the third spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. On the other hand, it was no. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100. Interestingly, this was the only NSYNC song to have entered the Billboard Hot Country Songs.
Alabama’s distinct vocal prowess proves that they can channel any song given to them and will surely make it their own.
Watch and listen to the country version of this song as Alabama takes on this NSYNC hit.
