Eric Church Drops Soulful Cover Of John Anderson’s “Mississippi Moon” For New Tribute Album

Eric Church can sing just about anything.

And he put his own, bluesy spin on John Anderson’s 1995 song “Mississippi Moon” as part of the John Anderson tribute album, Something Borrowed, Something New: A Tribute to John Anderson, that dropped today.

Written by Tony Joe White and Carson Whitsett, “Mississippi Moon” was released in April 1995 as the third and final single from his Country ’til I Die album, peaking at #15 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

Of course, I think pretty much anything Eric touches turns to gold, but there’s some great stuff on there from a wide variety of 13 incredible artists across the country, folk, and bluegrass genres.

The long list of featured artists include John Prine, Sierra Ferrell, Brent Cobb, Nathaniel Rateliff, Eric Church, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Tyler Childers, Luke Combs, Sturgill Simpson, Brothers Osborne, Del McCoury & Sierra Hull, Ashley McBryde, and Jamey Johnson.

Luke Combs did a great cover of John’s signature tune “Seminole Wind,” and Tyler Childers put a bluegrass spin on “Shoot Low Sheriff!”

Make sure you check ’em all out today, because it’s a fantastic record and great tribute to a wonderful artist:
