GA-20 Covers Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton's "Jolene" is a perfect song. It's completely iconic and it's virtually impossible to hear a bad version of it. When I saw that GA-20 was releasing a cover of it, I knew it was going to be great. And it is. GA-20 turn it into a laid back blues jam while still keeping the intensity and desperation of the original. (Ok, maybe not all of the intensity of the original, but this is Dolly Parton we're comparing it to after all.) The obvious comparison for this one is The White Stripes' blistering blues cover. GA-20's version isn't quite that intense and is a lot more straightforward blues. This is a great version of a truly iconic song that you're going to want to check out.

You can watch the live video of GA-20 covering "Jolene" below. For more on GA-20, check out the band's website. Upcoming tour dates are below the video.
