#LetTheGirlsPlay Cover: Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, ‘It’s Your Love’ [Watch]
Five of Nashville's most up-and-coming young songwriters proved they know the meaning of the old adage "the show must go on" during a recent Monday night performance at the Listening Room. The power went out due to severe thunderstorms in the area, but the #LetTheGirlsPlay performers didn't let that stop them from carrying on with a great cover of the Tim McGraw and Faith Hill hit, "It's Your Love."
Kelsey K, Catie Offerman, Kalie Shorr, Lacy Cavalier and Emily Rose were all part of the show on March 20, and when the storms hit and they lost power, it looked like the show couldn't continue. But when the sound and some of the lights came back up, they carried right on with the performance, which ended with an acoustic cover of the No. 1 hit from 1997. As the video above reveals, the show featured a little bit of special mood lighting in the absence of many of the venue's main lights.
McGraw and Hill's hit featured a sweeping arrangement, but the Song Suffragettes stripped Stephony Smith's song down to its bare essentials for their performance, which demonstrates that a great song can stand on its own in any format.
The weekly shows serve as an important spotlight for women in country music. They're partly a showcase, and partly a way for everyone involved to try out new songs in a supportive environment, with all of the performers coming together at the end for a group cover.
Shorr is a mainstay of the LTGP shows, and she's also one of Taste of Country's RISERS for 2017. We recently rolled out an exclusive interview and performance of her new single, "Nothin' New," and we'll be following her rise throughout the year in 2017.
Taste of Country also features a weekly #LetTheGirlsPlay cover, as well as monthly feature profiles.
Kim Paige is Taste of Country's featured #LetTheGirlsPlay artist for March.
