A number of country artists perform classic songs. They do these covers in live shows and they even put a few of their favorites on their albums once in a while. A recent example was the cover of Glen Campbell’s Galveston on David Nail’s new record. Great song and a great cover.
But now, Martina McBride is taking things into a little bit of uncharted territory. Martina is out on her own these days. She’s not on the big labels anymore, but she’s still as powerful as ever. And her new album is full of covers of some R&B classics like this one that you’ll surely remember. Check it out.
Come See About Me – Martina McBride
This is a great song. I love the original version and Martina does an amazing job. Her voice is one that goes beyond country music and really goes beyond all music genres. She sounds great on this song and I’m sure the entire album is going to be a real treat. It just kind of all really works well and because people love these old R&B songs I’m sure Martina is going to do really well with this record.
I’m wishing Martina all the best with this new album on her own label. It’s not easy to invest that much on your own, but from the sounds of this song I would bet that’s it’s going to work out just fine.
What do you think?
