Musical Interlude: Flowers on the Wall (2000)

In 2000, Eric Heatherly put a retro-rockabilly spin to the Statler Brothers' 1966 smash, "Flowers on the Wall" Like the original version, it was a top 10 hit on Billboard's country chart, but failed to reach the Hot 100, peaking at #50.

Unfortunately, Heatherly hasn't been heard from much since.

Personally, while this was great listening, I still think the original was better, and someday, I'll have a clip of the Statlers' version up.

I've heard both versions of the song and they're both pretty enjoyable. In fact, I'd never heard Heatherly's version till today. Makes me want to check out more of his work since I have always enjoyed the Rockabilly sound.

Ditto that, but as I noted, I haven't heard anything else from Heatherly since the "Swimming in Champagne" CD dropped. Could've been a 1-hit wonder.
