Kelleigh Bannen Covers Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’ [Watch]
Kelleigh Bannen has added her own beautiful twist to one of the biggest songs of 2014. The country newcomer posted a video on her official YouTube page with a powerful cover of Sam Smith's Grammy-winning ballad 'Stay With Me.'
Bannen's rendition of 'Stay With Me' adds a distinctive country twist to Smith's R&B-infused pop hit. Her voice is equal parts strong and vulnerable in this stripped-down version of the song, with acoustic instruments and soft harmonies from her band creating a sound that's just as poignant as the original.
When she's not creating show-stopping versions of pop hits, Bannen is performing country hits of her own. Check out her smoldering video for her 2014 hit, 'Smoke When I Drink.'
