Red Dirt Friday, Vol. 12

For anyone that follows me on Instagram, you may be aware of my love of Alabama, red dirt artists and cover songs.

Look for this album cover in stores or online!

I recently posted this picture, stating that "good music" is one of the 30 things I'm most thankful for ... and believe me, this version is awesome.

I've told you before about how I listen to the Red Dirt Rebel online, and one of the top songs for a few weeks was the Turnpike Troubadours version of "If You're Gonna Play in Texas." Love it.

Then, I happened to find the whole album - "High Cotton: Tribute to Alabama."

And my whole life changed.

Just kidding.

But seriously, go buy this album. Out of respect for Alabama, think about all they contributed to country music. (Dixieland Delight anyone?) Did I mention it's the band's 40th Anniversary? What a great way to honor them.

In a recent review, GAC blogger Daryl Addison said -

"The 14-track High Cotton is a thoughtful tribute project that allows its performers to reinvent a hit list of Alabama classics. By recreating these songs in a new and unique way, High Cotton successfully delivers a new artistic vision while showcasing the timeless and universal nature of Alabama’s enduring legacy."

What's your favorite cover or tribute album? Please share below.

Until next time,
