To celebrate Willie Nelson's ninetieth birthday, Sierra Ferrell recorded a cover of his duet with Ray Charles, "Seven Spanish Angels." The original is one of Nelson's more orchestral and bigger sounding songs. Ferrell's is much more stripped down and basic. While many of Ferrell's songs are vintage country sounding, her cover of "Seven Spanish Angels" adds in more electric guitar than we're used to from her. This is her covering a vintage country classic and adding just the slightest bit of rock to the track. Sierra Ferrell is becoming one of our favorite artists to hear a cover from, and her take on Willie Nelson and Ray Charles' classic is a perfect example of that.
