Episode 4
July 11

You don't have to be a "Redneck Woman" to play for $10,000, you just have to know the words to some of the music that rocks your world (only 40% of the time, though). It's a little thing we do called "The Singing Bee".

ROUND 1: Pick Four.

- 2004, Big & Rich, "Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy)"
BAND: Well, I walk into the room / Passing out hundred dollar bills / And it kills and it thrills

Lana: "And you save a horse..." NOPE.
Heath: "Like the horns on my Silverado grill." YEP!

- 1982, Dexy's Midnight Runners, "Come On Eileen"
BAND: Come on Eileen / Oh I swear what he means / At this moment...

JG: "Everything you mean to..." Good try.
Juliet: "You mean everything." Right on!

- 2008, Montgomery Gentry, "Back When I Knew It All"
BAND: Back when the world was flat / and mama and daddy didn't have a clue / that was back / back when a pitcher of beer...

Susan: "Back when I didn't..." No, you didn't.
Lori: "... an' a couple of shots made me bulletproof." GOT IT!

One more.

- 1992, Billy Ray Cyrus, "Achy Breaky Heart"
BAND: Don't tell my heart / My achy breaky heart / I just don't think he'd understand / And if you tell my heart / My achy breaky heart...

Lana: "He just might up and kill this man." Close.
JG: "He might blow up and kill this man." We have four!

Now that we have four, let's stop talking about it and start "bee-ing" about it. First, let's meet the players.

Heath: "da dum..." It was "No, don't say that you're sorry and I won't say I told you so".

- 1989, Alannah Myles, "Black Velvet" (for he word sang of you every song that was Every)
Juliet: "Every word that he sang was for you..." Good try, it was "Every word of every song that he sang was for you."

- 1972, Loggins & Messina, "Your Mama Don't Dance" (dance and don't and Your daddy don't rock roll your mama)
Lori: "Your mama don't dance and your daddy don't rock and roll." On the board!

- 2004, Darryl Worley, "Awful Beautiful Life" (crazy magic life almost beautiful sometimes awful tragic I love almost this)
JG: "I love this crazy tragic sometimes almost magic awful beautiful life." Bingo!

After round 2:

JG: 5

ROUND 3: Singing With The Enemy (5 points per lyric)

First is Heath & Juliet.

SWEEP for 15 each!

Next is Lori & JG.

One a piece is 5 a piece.

After round 3:

ROUND 4: Karaoke Challenge (2 points per word)

Lori goes first. She needs three to stay in this.

- 2006, Rodney Atkins, "These Are My People"

Lori gets six for 12, giving her 22. Can JG beat that?

- 1977, Meat Loaf, "Paradise by the Dashboard Light"

JG picks up 12... words for 24 points, giving him 34! Nice job...

- 2005, Faith Hill, "Mississippi Girl"

He almost sweeps it, getting 14 for 28, giving him 43. He's definitely in the final round. And not only that, he's pretty good sounding as well.

Will Juliet join him?

- 1990, Garth Brooks, "Friends in Low Places"

Juliet... SWEEPS! She has 45, so it's her in control against Heath in...

ROUND 5: Chorus Showdown

The song is from Taylor Swift in 2008. Juliet... PLAYS.

- 2008, Taylor Swift, "White Horse"

Juliet: "And he came on..." Nope, it's "I'm not a princess." Heath can seal the deal here.

- 2008, George Strait, "I Saw God Today"

Heath: "His fingerprints are every..." No, it's "I've been to church, I've read the book..."

Juliet gets another chance with...

- 1976, Kansas, "Carry On Wayward Son"

Juliet: "Carry on wayward son." NO! It was "Carry on my wayward son." Heath, again, can seal the deal here...

- 1977, Eddie Money, "Two Tickets to Paradise"

Heath: "I've got two tickets to paradise.... *honk*" Well, you got ONE line. This is going to a Sudden Death Tiebreaker... The tiebreaker is 1970... Lynn Anderson. That's Heath. "Pass." Juliet, it's all you.

- 1970, Lynn Anderson, "(I Never Promised You A) Rose Garden"
BAND: So smile for a while and let's be jolly / Love shouldn't be so melancholy / Come along and share the good times

Juliet: "That we had." No, it's "while we can", and Heath is playing for the money!

Time for Nashville boy to do the Bee proud. Seven songs, each one worth $500. Get five before you get three strikes, and you're $10,000 richer.

It's time... for the FINAL COUNTDOWN!
