Sam Williams covered his father’s iconic song in 2019 as a single, and hearing it for the first time blew me away.
Sam gives the song a modern twist while still keeping the roots of what makes the song so great intact.
The song’s opening features radio static, and the intro takes more of an acoustic approach drawing the listener in. Williams draws out his vocals just like his grandfather and puts a tinge of twang on the end of each word.
When the chorus rolls out around, he lets it rip.
What a way to keep your dad’s living legend alive, and what a way to give a song justice through a cover.
