#LetTheGirlsPlay Cover: ‘Run, Run, Rudolph’ [Listen]
Recently the women of Song Suffragettes covered a holiday classic. The Monday night #LetTheGirlsPlay show in Nashville closed with a cover of "Run, Run, Rudolph" to send fans running into the Christmas season.
From left to right Parker McKay, Lena Stone, Kalie Shorr, Taylor Noelle and Kasey Tyndall sing this classic, first popularized by Chuck Berry but countrified by artists including Luke Bryan. Shorr begins as Noelle adds harmonies before the rising country singer takes the first verse. Throughout the song layers of harmonies are added — Tyndall tries the next chorus and then McKay shows off her soulful voice.
The Christmas cover is a break from the types of songs that usually close the shows. More often than not Shorr will lead a country cover or a pop cover. There are few songs or styles that are off limits, but it's always a song that empowers women.
Song Suffragettes is a collaborative lineup of the best new female singer-songwriters in Nashville, and their Monday night performances at the Listening Room offer them a platform for their original songs, and a place to meet others in their situation. It's as much an onstage collaboration as off, as these women regularly write and record together. Taste of Country features a new cover weekly, as well as a monthly feature article on one of the talented women. This month’s featured artist is Tenille Arts.
