Back in 2012, country’s Dierks Bentley covered Pearl Jam’s “Just Breathe” and 5 years later, it still impresses me.
I have to admit, Pearl Jam is a very difficult band to cover, especially as a country artist. But Dierks makes it sound so right. I have a feeling the guitarist had something to do with that. Lead guitarist for Pearl Jam, Mike McCready, is right on stage with Dierks, so clearly he approves.
You don’t have to be a Pearl Jam or Dierks Bentley fan to find this pretty impressive. What do you think?
