The Grateful Dead or Sawyer Brown?

This is a results post on my last Battle of the Bands. The song was The Race Is On. The original recording was made by George Jones. I must say as all of the initial votes rolled in for Sawyer Brown, I was thinking I called this all wrong. I was thinkin' I shoulda put Sawyer Brown directly against George Jones. But then all of you Deadheads weighed in and it got more interesting. Just joking about the Deadhead thing. Some of you couldn't be more unDead. Ha!

The good news was that my once lopsided battle started to even out.

In the end, your votes stacked up like this:

The Grateful Dead ~ 6 votes
Sawyer Brown ~ 8 votes

So, like usual, my vote doesn't change anything at all (not that there's anything wrong with that!). I really like Sawyer Brown. In fact, I like their version even better than the George Jones original. So, my vote lands squarely with Sawyer Brown. And that increases their lead to 9 votes.

I fully intend to be back here on the 15th with another battle. I've even got some battles floating around my brain. However, I'm totally psyched for what I have planned on April 1. I'm really looking forward to that one, so please come back for it, as it will be unlike anything I've done here.


  1. Wow, a tight race. But those Deadheads are loyal and true so when you put up a song version by the Dead I think you can count on them doing well if not taking the lead. The Sawyer Brown/George Jones might have been interesting, but I think the outcome might have been similar.

    Nice one!

  2. I guess I am a dead head and some days, I take this more literal:) Looking forward to your A to Z

    1. Birgit, I'm not doing A to Z this year. I had a great time with it last year, but I just don't feel up to it.

    I can't believe how close this one turned out considering I was the first to vote for The Grateful Dead and they were getting clobbered when I did.

    Looking forward to whatever you've got planned...

  4. I was going to declare proudly that I helped pick the winner (against all logic), but something told me to go back and look at my comment and I see it's not there. Are these things not getting through?

    Looking forward to April 1st. Please tell me it's an elaborate April Fools joke...

    1. No, your vote/comment didn't show up. I thought you just sat this one out. However, your vote counted about as much as mine (not that there's anything wrong with that!). I guess this makes it Sawyer Brown with 10 votes. I can live with that:)

      It's kind of a joke. It's a joke Battle of the Bands style!

  5. Okay, now you've got me. What could you be up to on April 1?
