The day has finally come…

We have 13 incredible John Anderson covers, from some of the greatest current country music, folk, and bluegrass artists in the game right now.

Now, I’ve seen a number of country tribute albums over the years, but this is the first time I’ve seen one with a broad variety of artists like there is on Something Borrowed, Something New: A Tribute to John Anderson.

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.

With that being said, I’m here to shed some light on Luke Combs’ fantastic rendition of arguably Anderson’s iconic hit “Seminole Wind,” the title track to his 1992 album.

I’ll admit, I wondered when I first saw the news of this album, how somebody could put together a good John Anderson cover song, considering how distinct and unique his voice is which separated him from the rest of the pack in the ’80s and ’90s.

However, we also know that Combs could sing his senior page in his high school yearbook and still turn it into a number one hit, so I knew if there was anybody who could do it, it would be the North Carolina boy himself with his gritty vocals.

Sure enough, Combs put together a badass rendition to one of the most badass country songs of the ’90s.

Although I wish Combs’ cover had that iconic fiddle intro to the song like the original, nevertheless they went with a piano intro and it works. An incredible tribute to a country music icon.
