Easily one of the most underrated voices in country music, and his music has that classic country sound that I just can’t get enough of. And “I Let Her Lie” is one of my favorites (also a go-to karaoke song of mine, but that’s beside the point).
And now she’s back paying tribute to Daryle Singletary with a “female flip” of what she calls one of her favorite songs of all time with “I Let Her Lie.”
“One teary night I confessed my sins And I vowed to never cheat again But I told a lie You let me lie
Lord, I tried but I could not change We know exactly who’s to blame Cause I told a lie But you let me lie”
Mae has several other covers of classic country songs from the female perspective on her YouTube page, including “She’s Not the Cheatin’ Kind” by Brooks & Dunn, and my personal favorite, “Moon Over Georgia” by Shenandoah.
And if you’re into her covers, Mae also has some pretty good originals on her channel, including the sassy “Roses” that’s received high praise from Grady Smith.
