TEXAS MUSIC AWARDS - Cover of the Year

First off, yesterday's tribute to the nominees for Producer of the Year kind of got buried beneath The Party List so if you missed that article, you can see it HERE

Today we are talking COVERS. Not the album cover but the art of taking someone else's song and making it your own. A true artist's voice will come through on any song they sing but when they can take a previous recording/ hit and perform with the capability of making you forget the original ever existed, then you have an amazing cover tune.

Here are the nominees for this year's Cover of the Year:

"All Along the Watchtower" - Marina Rocks (original by Jimi Hendrix)
From her The Commerce Kid Album

"Angel From Montgomery" - The Grievous Angels (original by Bonnie Raitt)
From The Grievous Angels Album

"Funny How Time Slips Away" - Scott Taylor Band (original by Willie Nelson)
From their Beautiful Sin Album

"Georgia On My Mind" - Bill Reid (original by Ray Charles)
From his Blues for Lost Dreams Album

"Wishing" - Emily Grace Berry (original by Buddy Holly)
From her Canyon Music Album
