#LetTheGirlsPlay Cover: Train, ‘Drops of Jupiter’ [Watch]
The women of #LetTheGirlsPlay took on an unusual cover at a recent Monday night show at the Listening Room in Nashville, joining their talents to perform Train's signature song, "Drops of Jupiter."
Mignon, Lena Stone, Kalie Shorr, Emily Brooke and Trannie Stevens were on the bill for the Song Suffragettes show on March 27, and they stripped down the hit from 2001 for the weekly group cover at the end of the show, with Stone underpinning the performance on acoustic guitar.
Stevens takes the first verse in the video above, accompanying Stone on her keyboard as she delivers the classic opening lines. Shorr sings the first chorus, and in a move that's somewhat unusual for her, she's guitar-less for this performance, letting Stone handle the chords while she performs with just the mic in her hand.
Brooke takes the second verse, followed by Stone before Mignon delivers the second chorus. All of the performers join their voices together in unison for the bridge before bringing the song home with a tradeoff between unison and harmony vocals for the wordless chant at the end.
The #LetTheGirlsPlay movement started in response to the unique struggles women face at every level of the country music business, with the weekly gigs showcasing a rotating roster of five of Nashville's most promising female singer-songwriters. It's working, too. Shorr was involved with Song Suffragettes before she scored with "Fight Like a Girl" on SiriusXM, and she was recently chosen as one of Taste of Country's RISERS for 2017.
Taste of Country features a weekly #LetTheGirlsPlay cover, as well as monthly feature profiles on some of Nashville's most up-and-coming young females. Kim Paige is the featured #LetTheGirlsPlay artist for March.
