Ward Davis Shares Kick*ss Cover Of George Strait’s “Troubadour”

Ward Davis is the real deal.

He’s proved himself as one of country’s best songwriters with cuts on multiple Cody Jinks albums, as well as cuts with Whitey Morgan and also Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard’s 2015 Django and Jimmie album.

But then when you consider his studio albums, the 2015 15 Years In A 10 year Town, as well as the critically-acclaimed 2020 album Black Cats & Crows, we’re talking about a brilliant songwriter AND gifted recording artist.

Throw in the live performances, and their absolutely top-notch backstories, and you’re looking at one of the best in the business.

While his originals are how he’s made a name for himself, he sure knows is way around a cover. We’ve seen him team up with Colter Wall and Cody Jinks for a Hank Jr. cover and now he’s back with one of George Strait’s best.

“Troubadour” was the title track of The King’s 2008 album which also contained the mega-hit “I Saw God Today,” the highest debuting single of his career.

The album also lead to George Strait’s first Grammy win for Best Country Album.

While “Troubadour” never got to the magical Number One spot on the charts, it was the 79th single of his to make the Top Ten, which is an absolutely outrageous number.

These lyrics just feel true to form for Ward, one of the last real troubadours out there today.

Wouldn’t mind a whole lot more of this.
