It’s the trio we all truly deserve.
In what I think is probably the best new Friday release this week, Cody Jinks, Ward Davis and Clint Black teamed up for a reimagined version of Clint’s 1990 hit “Nothing’s News.”
Cody shared the announcement in a post on Instagram, saying he and Ward got the idea to record it one night before a show when they were sitting in Ward’s van listening to some of Clint’s old stuff.
And not only that, but they managed to get him featured on the song with them, which just takes it to a whole other level:
“@WardDavisMusic and I were sitting in his van one night listening to @ClintBlack before a show when we decided we needed to record ‘Nothing’s News.’
Then we decided we needed to call him and ask him to sing his own song with us. Not long after that we were put in touch with him and he said yes!
Everyone knows how important Clint is to country music and I’m proud and thankful to have had him be so gracious and kind. Our rendition of ‘Nothing’s News’ is out now. Listen at the link in bio.”
A solo write by Clint, “Nothing’s News” was released in June of 1990 as the fifth single from his debut album Killin’ Time. It was actually his first single that didn’t make it to #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks, as it peaked at #3 later that year (still not half bad, though).
Clint and Ward have both been out on the road with Cody this year, so it’s pretty cool to see the three of them team up to record a good old fashioned country song like this.
I mean, they each have such strong and recognizable voices on their own, so hearing them all together almost feels too good to be true.
