Video – Drake White Covers Waylon Jennings’ “Good Hearted Woman”


The Forever Country Covers Series celebrating past artists and songs, while promoting the upcoming 50th CMA Awards continues on today with Drake White covering the Waylon Jennings’ classic “Good Hearted Woman.” The song won the 1976 CMA Single of the Year and was one of the signature songs of the outlaw legend. It’s interesting that White was chosen to cover Waylon, as I didn’t really picture White covering him. But White does a really good job covering it and making it his own. The whistling towards the end is a nice touch too. It’s great seeing classic songs being celebrated and introduced to modern fans. It’s a time honored tradition for country artists to reflect back on and honor those who paved the way before them. Give it a listen and let me know what you think in the comments below.

    I’m surprised Josh you haven’t mentioned Lauren Alaina’s cover of “Believe” by Brooks & Dunn. She really makes the song her own (curious about what your thoughts on that cover), and she sounds perfect.

    Drake White sounds decent hear, but for some reason no matter how hard I try, I can’t get into his voice. But I do think this cover is all around good.

      I agree. Just can’t get into this guy. Not a bad cover by any means just his voice grates on me a little.
