Seriously, people can smoke multiple packs of cigs a day for their whole lives (not recommended), and still be unable to have a voice that deep.
Needless to say, the dude’s gotta incredibly rare talent.
Although he didn’t make it very far on American Idol, videos have began to surface of the Taylor covering songs, and even making another appearance on the singing show I Can See Your Voice and singing Toby Keith and Willie Nelson’s “Beer For My Horses.”
Speaking of his covers, his latest one is none other than the widely-covered, “Fraulein.”
Originally written by Lawton Williams, and first released in 1957 by Bobby Helms, “Fraulein” has been covered by everyone from Willie Nelson and Jerry Lee Lewis, to Townes van Zandt.
However, one of the most popular versions appeared on Colter Wall’s debut, self-titled album in 2017, where he teamed up with Tyler Childers for a cover of the old tune.
Singing in a stairwell with his buddy Ethan Reeves on the acoustic guitar, he delivers an impressive rendition of the song, bringing that deep vocal sound akin to Colter Wall. Meanwhile, Ethan’s higher register mirrors more closely to that of Tyler Childers.
Nice work fellas.
Here’s the version from Colter Wall and Tyler Childers…
For my money, it’s one of the most underrated songs on planet Earth.
