Sierra Ferrell Covers Neil Young

In the two or so years since I discovered Sierra Ferrell, she's become an absolute master of cover songs, which we definitely appreciate. Her latest is a cover of Neil Young's iconic "Harvest Moon" recorded for The Hippie Shake. It's just Ferrell and her guitar on the song, and it's basically perfect. Sure, "Harvest Moon" is probably Young's most covered and obvious song choice, but if you asked me what song Ferrell should cover of his, I'd choose this one. Ferrell makes it just a little bit more country (but that could just be her voice) and adds a little bit of whimsy to the song. It's one of Young's more hopeful and lovely songs, and it's just a perfect one for Ferrell to take a shot at, and she obviously knocks this one out of the park.

You can watch Sierra Ferrell's version of "Harvest Moon" below. For more on Sierra Ferrell, check out the artist's website.
