‘Still Feelin’ Blue’ [Gram Parsons cover]

These days, the appellation of “up and coming Nashville singer-songwriter” is more likely to send a shiver of fear up people’s spines than it is to provoke excited expectations of a new Loretta Lynn or Patsy Cline, but Caitlin Rose is one young lady worth paying attention to. Her 2008 EP Dead Flowers was a gutsy romp through generations of country music of the coarser, more genuine type than we usually hear in artists barely into their twenties, marking her out as a straight-talking, no-nonsense star with a bright future. A year later and she’s just been picked up by the good people at Names Records, home of Alela Diane, so expect that future to get increasingly interesting very soon. In honour of what would have been his 63rd birthday, Caitlin is offering up her cover of the Gram Parsons classic ‘Still Feelin’ Blue’, the lead track from his 1973 solo debut GP, as a free download. Compared with previously released efforts by the likes of My Morning Jacket’s Jim James and Australian country darling Kasey Chambers, Caitlin’s version is rawer and rougher and all the better for it. Caitlin is making a rare trip to play some shows in the UK this December, starting with a visit to our friends at The Allotment (at the Betsey Trotwood) on December 1. MP3 after the jump.
