Country Covers Dylan
by Jim Allen | May 10, 2014
Bob Dylan is probably one of the most widely covered songwriters in existence. His tunes have been tackled by artists of every conceivable kind, from pop idols to punk upstarts. But the deep Americana roots in Dylan's work seem to give country singers a special sort of slant on interpreting his material. That's probably why his work has been so consistently covered by country acts over the years, from old-school outlaw country icons like Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings to contemporary country stars like Dierks Bentley and such esteemed alt country acts as Lucinda Williams and Reckless Kelly. So whether you want to hear "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" with a bluegrass twist or "To Ramona" with a Tex Mex tinge, tune into this country cavalcade of Dylan covers.
