“Midnight Train To Memphis,” “Parachute,” “Nobody To Blame,” “Arkansas,” and plenty of others will have you wanting to get all kinds of rowdy with a few too many drinks on a Friday night.
And now, he’s added another ass-whoopin’ tune to the arsenal, but you can only find it at one place at the moment… a Ram Trucks commercial.
Covering Al Green’s hit 1971 song, “I’m a Ram,” with his signature soulful country twist, it’ll definitely get your blood pumping.
I just hope we get to hear the full cover some day…
He also takes you in-depth and behind the scenes on the making and production of the song. Teaming up with none other than the legendary songwriter and producer, Dave Cobb, he also discusses why he likes to cover songs.
“I always like to cover songs because I don’t have any ego about ’em. There are lots of great songs to record and there are lots of great songs that I like to sing.
I’m always gonna try to cover things, a lot of my heroes covered things, ya know Willie Nelson’s covered other people’s songs, Aretha Franklin always covered other people’s songs. If there’s a good song out there, it’s always worth singing even if you didn’t write it.”
He also had praises for the song “I’m a Ram” itself:
“You know we played it with hopefully the most respect and reverence and I’m sure we had a fun time doing it, I think it’s a great song that makes you feel good, makes you feel like you wanna get in a truck and drive down the road.”
“What It Means To Be A Ram”
Also, speaking of badass Ram truck commercials, we can’t forget about one of the most legendary ones to date, “So God Made A Farmer.”
