Sierra Ferrell is BACK with more outstanding covers.
My favorite hippie cowgirl has been out on the road and delivering some phenomenal shows during this tour. She wrapped up her Texas leg of the tour with a stop at historic Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas.
I have been consuming so much media from this first leg of the tour, especially from this show in particular.
The energy in this venue hits differently. Maybe it’s due to the history that the walls of Gruene Hall carry or the fact that the audience knows what good country music is and will lift up any artist that takes that stage.
When Sierra came back out on stage for her encore, she covered the classic “Seven Spanish Angels” by Willie Nelson and Ray Charles…..damn, she went out with a bang on this one.
Her band put together a little decomposed melody so that the focus was really on her vocals. She did not hold back.
She leads the vocals, and her band huddles around her for the harmonizes, adding depth to the simple melody. The crowd is nearly silent, listening to them.
For the last chorus, she gets the crowd to help her out while she belts out some notes to round out the song with a strong ending. Her vocal ability amazes me whenever I see clips of her covering tunes.
Sierra Ferrell can do no wrong.
If you want to watch the entire electric show from Gruene Hall, check it out. She hits all her fan favorites and reveals a few new tracks that will appear on her next studio record.
I mean, talk about the energy in her closer “In Dreams.”
