Morgan Wallen’s most recently released track is an acoustic cover of Grammy award winner, Jason Isbell’s song “Cover Me Up.” The single shows a different, heartfelt, side of Wallen, which is a stark contrast to many of the upbeat, good time, party songs that most of us are familiar with from his debut album If I Know Me. “We ain’t leaving this room / Till Percy Priest breaks open wide / And the river runs through / And carries this house on the stones / Like a piece of driftwood / Cover me up and know you’re enough / To use me for good.” This rendition provides an insight into the musical ingenuity and tender side of the rising artist, and the ability to make a song completely his own.
“Cover Me Up” is the first cover song that Wallen has released as a single. After covering it for a Taste of Country Risers Session the song was an immediate success and a favorite among fans. The original video has over 2.5 million views in only four months, which provided the encouragement to record it as an official single. Check out the video below.
Time will tell if the love song will make it into Wallen’s live set on his upcoming slots on Florida Georgia Line’s Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour or his stint with Luke Combs on the Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour. For tour dates head to http://morganwallen.com
