Billy Strings just might be one of the best to ever do it when it comes to flat pickin’ a guitar, and he’s blessing us once again with an out of this world cover.
He recently released a knockout rendition of the gospel tune, “Uncloudy Day.” Originally written by Josiah Kelley Alwood in 1879, “Uncloudy Day” was cut by The Staple Singers in 1956, but Willie Nelson might have the most well-known version.
A song about what Heaven will be like, it was released on his 1976 The Troublemaker album, as well as the part of the soundtrack to his 1980 movie, Honeysuckle Rose (you know, we can’t forget about his acting career).
And can you think of a person better fit to cover a bluegrass gospel song? I mean it doesn’t get any better than Billy Strings.
