Here we have a cover song that is one of the greatest country songs of all time. It’s a tall task taking on a song like this, but Josey Milner was up for the challenge. Check this one out and see what you think.
Walkin’ After Midnight – Josey Milner
I like this version. It adds a little kick to the classic song. There was always a little edge on this song like the woman in the song was out there kind of doing her own thing.
Josey’s version kind of brings a little modern sound to the track. You get a little rock influence, which I think works well on the song. I can see this one doing well in the country clubs all over the country and can definitely see it doing well in the live show. I’m sure Josey gets them dancing out there on the floors with this one everywhere she goes.
Some people don’t like cover versions of songs. And it is challenging to compare to the original especially when the song was huge, but if you’re a good artist you can put your own spin on a classic and make it something new.
I think Josey chose a song that she does well and it came across just fine. A good cover from a rising country singer on the scene.
