David in Kansas CityThere has been very little discussion about how David might sound singing a Country song, although when he sang Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Memories on American Idol, the country artist he brought to my mind was Vince Gill.

David’s voice is a little lower, smokier, and isn’t a true tenor like Vince’s. But I can see David singing this song, sitting on a stool in the middle of the stage, adding a little bit of his own flavor to it.

This is a song that might even appeal to David’s sensibilities. A song with lyrics that evoke a sense of longing for permanence and stability. And there is just enough wailing in this song to showcase David’s voice in the exact tone that makes your heart sing and your eyes tear up.

I think David could make a song like this his own, and bust another genre…

If You Ever Have Forever In Mind
by Vince Gill

You’re climbing mountains, I’m on a hill
You’re always running I’m standing still
You live for the moment, no future no past
I may be a fool to love by the rules and want it to last

If you ever have forever in mind
I’ll be here and easy to find
If your heart isn’t ready to lay down with mine
If you ever have forever in mind

Music has ended still you want to dance
I know that feeling, I can’t take that chance
You live for the moment no future no past
I may be a fool to love by the rules, I want it to last

If you ever have forever in mind
I’ll be here and easy to find
If your heart isn’t ready to lay down with mine
If you ever have forever in mind
