Kane Brown teamed up with country band Restless Road for an incredible cover of Blake Shelton’s chart-topping single “Ol’ Red.”
Featured in CMT’s Campfire Sessions, Brown and Restless Road covered the throwback Shelton track during an impressive fireside performance. The southern twang in Brown’s voice is very apparent while Restless Road harmonizes along. The group was seated around a fire surrounded by string lights and a barn in the background.
The song was originally recorded by George Jones on his 1990 album, You Oughta Be Here With Me, and then later covered by Kenny Rogers on his 1993 album If Only My Heart Had A Voice. Though they weren’t released as a single, Blake Shelton changed that when he released his own rendition in 2002 off his self-titled debut album. It claimed the number one spot on the Billboard charts.
Country vocal trio Restless Road is the first act Kane Brown signed on his new 1021 Entertainment label via Sony Nashville.
While Brown may be lacking the mullet that Shelton was rocking back in 2002, he really knocked out this cover with his own flare. His deep voice, and southern accent, combined with Restless Road’s acoustic guitars really strip the song back to reveal Brown’s talent.
