Some of today’s greatest country artists have honored the Rolling Stones in tremendous ways. Yesterday (March 17) producer Robert Deaton released a compilation album called Stoned cold country in honor of the Rolling Stones’ 60th anniversary as a band. The album features country music stars Koe Wetzel, Elle King, Little Big Town and Maren Morris.
For Stoned cold countryMorris contributed a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Dead Flowers.”
In Morris’ version, the song is more country-influenced, with annoying guitars and simple drum patterns throughout. She blesses the track with her signature country-pop vocals, adding a sweet twist.
Though best known for her work in country music, Morris has dabbled in a variety of genres, from pop to rock to EDM. Last year during an interview with CBS Sunday morning before the release of their album humble questShe revealed that she had learned to stop apologizing for experimenting with different noises.
“I think I’ll always be a little bit of everything,” she said. “And I’ve just learned to stop apologizing for it and just try to make music that makes me feel good and hopefully makes others feel good too.”
