The year was 1997.
It was Christmas morning, I was sitting on the floor unwrapping my Christmas presents when out of the shiny red paper emerges a compact disc (that’s how we used to listen to music back then).
Everclear… So Much For The Afterglow
While I grew up primarily on ’90s country music, I did have a phase of late ’90s alt-rock that became one of the musical cornerstones of my childhood. And one of those first bands? Everclear.
Which is why it’s pretty cool to see Caylee Hammack take a run at their 1997 hit “I Will Buy You A New Life.” And while it would be cool to cover the song on her own, Caylee enlisted the help of Everclear frontman Art Alexakis for her cover.
