Susie McEntire-Eaton (formerly Luchsinger), the sister of Reba McEntire, has been paving her way to stardom in her own right. She may not be a star as big as her sister, but she is slaying the career that she has. Doing away with the mainstream country music, Susie is popularly known as a Christian Country Music (CCM) artist. Her songs are more on Christian gospel hymns. While Reba is a very famous icon, no one can deny that both sisters are wickedly and equally talented.
In one of the episodes of Gospel Music Showcase, a show of Daystar Website which showcases gospel music and features country music stars, Susie was a special guest and she rendered her version of Tim McGraw’s 1998 hit “Where the Green Grass Grows“. It was a heartfelt rendition and she sang it as great as Tim McGraw’s original version.
Here is Susie McEntire singing “Where The Green Grass Grows” for Gospel Music Showcase below:
About the Song
Co-penned by American country music songwriters Craig Wiseman and Jess Leary, “Where the Green Grass Grows” is a country song recorded by American country music singer and Louisianan native Tim McGraw. It was the fifth single from McGraw’s fourth album, Everywhere. In addition, the song was released in July 1998 and was co-produced by Tim McGraw with American record producers Byron Gallimore and James Stroud.
“Where the Green Grass Grows” drew a great chart performance especially in 1998. It reached no. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs). Meanwhile, it placed no. 79 on the Billboard Hot 100. On the other hand, it was the best song on the RPM Country Tracks that year in Canada.
The song centers on the desire of someone to leave the routinary life in the city and go back to the country and live there. The statement and title of the song, “where the green grass grows“, hints about living the country life.
Here are the first two stanzas of the song and try to sing along:
Six lanes tail lights
Red ants marchin’ into the night
They disappear to the left and right again
From a sack
A ninety nine cent heart attack
I got a poundin’ head and an achin’ back
And the camels buried in a big straw stack
I’m gonna live where the green grass grows
Watch my corn pop up in rows
Every night be tucked in close, to you
Raise our kids where the good Lord’s blessed
Point our rockin’ chairs towards the west
And plant our dreams where the peaceful river flows
Where the green grass grows
