Do you love Shania Twain? How about Lady Antebellum? Kelsea Ballerini? Brett Young? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then I have a very special treat for you. The latter three released a video of themselves performing an acoustic version of Twain's "You're Still the One." Prepare your body for cold chills.
The song was first released by Twain in 1997 on her Come On Over album. It was nominated for two of the Grammy's most prestigious awards: Song of the Year and Record of the Year. Reaching both critical and commercial acclaim, this song is definitely one of Shania Twain's most memorable tunes.
Recently, Lady Antebellum has been touring around the country with Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young as opening acts. Taking a break from the tour, the artists got together to sing this Shania Twain hit, acoustically of course.
Lady A's Dave Haywood played one of his acoustic guitars while Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott, Kelsea Ballerini, and Brett Young sang different lines from the song, harmonizing on the chorus. Let me warn you. This stripped down, bare version of this song will give you cold chills. There is absolutely no way that this rendition will not give you the feels.
It is these videos that remind us why country music is the greatest genre known to man, featuring the best talent in the industry. It is obvious that these artists are not lip syncing, showing off their true talents. There is no auto-tune. This is just the five of them singing on a couch.
Take a few minutes out of your day to enjoy this beautiful, acoustic version of one of the biggest country crossover hits of all time. I am pretty sure that Shania Twain would be proud to hear such a fantastic rendition. Their voices are beautiful, giving each note and lyric the heartfelt passion they deserve. After all, country music is all about making you feel. These five are just conduits for a story, but they give it the life that the song needs to succeed. I sincerely hope that Lady Antebellum, Kelsea Ballerini, and Brett Young actually record this version of "You're Still the One."
