This is pretty cool.
I think it’s great when stars cover songs from other genres or even from the same genre. It happened recently with Craig Campbell and his version of Royals.
This time we get a cover from country star Meghan Linsey.
Counting Stars – Meghan Linsey
Recognize the song? It’s One Republic, which is a big time pop group. They’ve had all kinds of hits the last few years and their lead man is also a big producer and songwriter in the pop world.
This is a really cool cover. Meghan stays with the pop influence of the song, but you can feel her country roots come through. It’s pretty cool and even cooler that she put this out as an official recording.
Do you recognize Meghan’s photo and voice?
She’s one half of the former Steel Magnolia duo. She’s out on her own now with a new album due out later this year – that’s the plan anyway. It sounds like she wasn’t planning on putting out anything official until later this year, but she loved this song and wanted to put her spin on things.
It’s a nice way to re-introduce herself to the country world with a song that most listeners will probably recognize.
Again, I love the cover version. We often get iPhone recordings of covers that artists do in concert, but it’s nice to have official versions too.
