Just covers. Also check out my best albums of 2017 list, where you’ll find NOT DARK YET by ALLISON MOORER AND SHELBY LYNNE–an amazing record, filled with cover songs.
But this is just the warm up. Cover songs cover songs cover songs. Let’s do this.
20. AMERICAN GIRL by THE DOLLYROTS (Tom Petty)
I had to make sure one Tom Petty made the list this year, and I enjoyed this one the most because it stayed true to the original and therefore paid tribute to the brilliance of one of the greatest American songwriters who ever lived.
19. DRIVE by MATT POND PA (Cars cover)
18. 9 to 5 by FASTBALL (Dolly Parton cover)
17. BORN UNDER A BAD SIGN by BLACK STONE CHERRY (Cream/Albert King).
16. THE CHAIN by HARRY STYLES (Fleetwood Mac)
