Country version of The Sound of Music

It all started with a simple article. NBC is doing a live 3-hour telecast of The Sound of Music next holiday season featuring American Idol winner and country singer Carrie Underwood.

The question is...What if the whole musical was country-themed?

If we're going to have Carrie play Maria, we would need to have another star play Captain von Trapp.  So we signed Larry the Cable Guy.

Carrie singing "My Favorite Things"

Here is the family, all lined up for the opening weekend of NASCAR racing.

Captain von Trapp singing (to the tune of "Edelweiss")

♫ Natty Ice, Natty Ice, Every morning you greet me
♫ Small can, white ♫ Crisp and bright
♫ You look happy to meet me.
♫ When I gotta go ♫ At the toilet, I flow,
♫ Seems like I go forever.
♫ Natty Ice, Natty Ice, ♫ Bless the white trash forever

We can't forget Liesl singing "I am 16 (with a kid) Going on 17 (with another on the way)"

The role of Gretl von Trapp will be played by Honey Boo Boo.


Special guest appearance by Dolly Parton singing "Climb Every Mountain"

One of the highlights of the show is when Maria teaches the children to sing "Do-Re-Mi" from the back of a pick up.

Finally, we have all the kids (including Honey Boo Boo) singing

♫ So long. Farewell.
♫ Adios and gracias
