Dawn Landes and Justin Townes Earle Cover Dolly Parton

There is a finite number of Justin Townes Earle songs out there, so any time a new recording is released to the public we're going to cherish it. Dawn Landes recently released this recording from 2011 of her and Earle covering the Dolly Parton classic "Do I Ever Cross Your Mind?" The original is obviously a classic, but it is from 1982 to it's a tad dated. Landes and Earle's cover is just the two musicians around a single mic in Landes' studio while they were touring together. It's beautiful in its simplicity, and it's the perfect cover. You can hear the joy spilling out of the pair while they play a song they both love. It's that simple joy that makes a cover like this truly special, and we're thrilled Landes has put this out in the world for everyone.

You can listen to Dawn Landes and Justin Townes Earle's version of "Do I Ever Cross Your Mind?" below. The song is available now on Landes' Bandcamp. For more on Dawn Landes, check out the artist's website.
