TVD | Covered

I went home to the small town where I grew up listening to my grandpa's country records this past weekend, so I thought it appropriate that TVD covers week (which continues after last week's break due to the MJ news) should include 5 old time country covers. Some performances better than the originals, some worse, but all 5 songs are immaculate.

Willie Nelson - Always on My Mind (Brenda Lee cover)
Johnny Cash - I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry (Hank Williams cover)
Ray Charles - I Can't Stop Loving You (Don Gibson cover)
Patterson Hood - Pay No Attention to Alice (Tom T. Hall cover)
Norah Jones - Be Here to Love Me (Townes van Zandt cover)
