Chase McDaniel from Campbellsville, Kentucky knows a thing or two about music but when he took on Randy Travis‘ famous hit, “Deeper Than The Holler,” he set the bar for any other artist brave enough to cover the classic.
McDaniel might seem like your average young man, but he is part of 4th + Main, a musical group that is quickly growing in popularity – and with good reason. Their deep voices and sense of brotherhood is what country music is all about. They know how to goof off, but still create some great music.

While each of the band members has their own specific sound – McDaniel will blow you away with his green-eyed, deep-voiced solo act.
Travis released the chart-topping hit back in 1988 and since then, many artists have tried to cover it – but few are able to get Travis’ twangy vocals just right. Josh Turner’s version was a hit and he was even able to sing with the legend – adding his own deep voice to the tune.
From the sound of it, McDaniel is following in Turner’s footsteps – his own echoing voice carrying throughout the song. He decided to cover the classic for a throwback social media post – and after just one second of listening to it, it’ll leave you weak in the knees.
The best part is that the young artist respects country’s roots. He honors Travis for his work saying in the post, “Randy Travis is one of my all-time favorite singers.”
He is definitely one talented young man. Watch the video below to see his full performance and let us know what song you think he should cover next in the comments!
