Sierra Ferrell Covers Faron Young

This past Sunday saw another edition of Sierra Ferrell's Pick Your Poison Virtual Concert Series. The theme for this one was Calypso, and it included a cover of Faron Young's 1958 song "Alone With You." Faron Young is an artist I had never heard of before Ferrell's cover, but he was a classic country singer and producer. Ferrell's cover is pretty spot on, and it's just pure classic country. She does inject the song with her own spark, which is what draws us to her music so intensely. She and her band seem to be having an absolute blast, which is what we really want with this type of cover. Plus, they stray from the original with a funkier outro, so stay tuned for that.

You can watch Sierra Ferrell's take on "Alone With You" below. The third and final installment of the Pick Your Poison Virtual Concert Series is May 16 with the theme of Jazz Night at the Basement. You can get a ticket here. For more on Sierra Ferrell, check out the artist's website.
