They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and Maren Morris is receiving lots of it lately with covers of her music. The latest is from L.A. based singer Aaron Encinas and Nashville’s Suzy Jones, who covered her poignant ballad “Once.”

And it is incredible.

Featured on her debut album Hero, “Once” has Morris telling a former flame that despite their relationship being over, she hopes that he can remember to stay kind, singing, “When it’s all said and done, don’t forget that you loved me once.”

On their cover of the track, Encinas sings the powerful first verse and chorus of the song before Jones joins in on the following verse. It’s striking, and it got Morris’ approval, too. The bubbling star shared the video on Twitter, writing, “DAMN. You guys killed it.”

Morris’ major label debut continues to make waves, but she has been anything but an overnight success. She’s a longtime songwriter, and as a singer had auditioned for reality singing competition shows like American Idol and The Voice years ago, but was turned away.

“I think about all of the freaking talent shows I’ve tried out for in my life and I’m so glad I didn’t make any of them,” she tells Rolling Stone Country. “It’s full circle, because I was rejected from The Voice. I was rejected from American Idol — and I’m happier for it now.”
