The CMA Awards are pulling out all of the stops in promoting and building attention for the 50th anniversary of the show. First they released the near-universally beloved “Forever Country,” which is lighting up the digital sales charts, debuting at #1 on the Billboard Hot Country songs chart. Now they’ve announced the Forever Country Covers series, where artists of today cover some of the most iconic and beloved songs that have won CMA awards over it’s 50 years. The first to kick if off is new traditionalist Jon Pardi covering the legendary Randy Travis’ classic hit “Forever and Ever Amen.” It won the Single and Song of the Year awards at the 1987 CMA Awards. Picking Pardi to cover this song was absolutely perfect, as he fits the song like a glove and certainly does Travis justice. Give it a listen and let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
