Artists and digital music naysayers can claim what they want, but the world is a better place with Spotify in it. On Sunday, the popular digital streaming platform shared 55 recordings as a special Nashville edition of its “Spotify Singles” series, which typically hears artists performing live versions of their own songs, as well as fun notable covers.
Of the dozens of artists who shared live recordings to the country-based playlist, some of the bigger names who partook in the fun included Luke Combs, Kacey Musgraves, Taylor Swift, Zac Brown Band, Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, Lady Antebellum, John Prine, Jason Isbell, and many more.
Some of the notable covers which were mixed into the playlist over the weekend include Swift’s rendition of “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire; Kane Brown performing “Versace on the Floor” by Bruno Mars; Caitlyn Smith performing “You Make Me Feel Like (a Natural Woman)” originally sung by Aretha Franklin; Dan + Shay performing “Million Reasons” by Lady Gaga; and Russell Dickerson performing “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson; and the recent recording of John Prine teaming up the Secret Sisters to perform “I Just Called To Say I Love You” by Stevie Wonder, just to name a few.
