While remaining true to the original's emotional depth, the updated version is for the contemporary pop-soul audience. Stripped away are the twangy, country elements of Kearney's version, which are replaced with modern, upbeat pop sounds. As a result, the song is a perfect fusion of classical country lyrical prowess mixed with energetic beats and sung by the talented Mila Franc. For the listener, the result is a tune which maintains the vibrant rhythms of pop music today but breaks out of the mold to become something else entirely different. Unlike many of the ho-hum popular songs today, which are often described by critics as being meaningless and unimaginative, this remake is both bold and unique. True fans of music will find a lot to like with this particular release. Also watch out for the "Hot" dance track to be on the Sympathetic Lies single release.
