I was listening to the new Luke Combs album, Gettin’ Old, the other day and his cover of Fast Car came on and it is so good. Not only are his original songs incredible, but his rendition of the Tracy Chapman song is one I like even better than the original. If you haven’t heard the cover check it out below:

Remakes and covers have been around forever and stretch across all genres of music.

Sometimes there might be a song you really didn’t like until someone else sang it or maybe you’re someone that never steers from the original. Country songs from musical legends have been covered by a myriad of different artists all across various genres.

Hearing Fast Car got me thinking, what other covers from country artists have been done?

From Reba McEntire to Tyler Braden, Kelsea Ballerini to Jason Aldean, we’ve put together a list of 11 country covers you should definitely hear:

  • Kelsea Ballerini – Fleetwood Mac’s Dream

    Kelsea Ballerini covered Fleetwood Mac’s Dream during CMT’s Campfire Sessions. Dream was Fleetwood Mac’s second single off their album Rumours.

  • Taylor Swift – Phil Collins’ I Can’t Stop Loving You

    Taylor Swift covered Can’t Stop Loving You by Phil Collins in the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge back in 2020.

  • Tyler Braden – Train’s Drops Of Jupiter

    On Tyler Braden’s YouTube channel he covers his favorite songs in a weekly series: One Song, One Take. His cover of Train’s Drops of Jupiter had us bopping our heads to the beat, but there are several other great covers on his channel.

    The Bryan Adam’s cover can be heard of Aldean’s MACON album.
