The Similarities Between Elvis & Garth
Two of the biggest musical icons of the 20th century were Elvis Presley and Garth Brooks. After all, Garth is the best-selling solo artist of all time in the United States with a total of 138 million units sold. Elvis is close behind him in second place, having sold 136 million units in the United States so far.
Although the two talented entertainers dominated the music industry during seperate decades, they are similar in many ways. Both have dozens upon dozens of hit albums and songs, both are well-respected by the country music community, and both are fathers to daughters.
Elvis only had one daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, who has followed in his musical footsteps. Garth is a father to three girls, and his youngest, Allie, seems to have been bitten by the musical bug as well.
Meet Garth’s Youngest Daughter, Allie
Allie is the one who brought the connection between her father and “The King” full circle when she recorded and shared a cover of Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
The song was a number one hit in multiple countries around the world, prompting many other artists to step up and record it.
The beautiful song has been a fan-favorite for decades, and we’re sure you’ll fall in love with it even more after you hear Allie sing it. Sitting down with an acoustic guitar in hand, Allie strummed a few notes before she moved into a performance that will leave you speechless.
If we had to use one word to describe Allie’s voice, it would be “enchanting.” There’s just something about it that instantly draws you in. Perhaps its the raw sense of honesty that comes through in each words she sings, or her impeccable tone, or the way she styles the notes for added emotion.
This Is More Than Worth Watching
But actually, we think it’s all of these factors and so many more that make Allie’s performance stand out in a sea of other Elvis covers.
Allie signed off her cover in the caption, sending “much love” to her fans and encouraging them to watch, share, and like the video. It seems that they listened, because her cover has generated thousands of views so far! Knowing how good this cover is, it’s sure to gain even more views as time goes on.
It’s clear that Allie has a knack for performing, and we’re excited to see where her future will take her. In the meantime, we can enjoy her stunning covers such as this one below.
