Lauren Alaina has been asked to be a part of the “Forever Country” series. She took to social media to share this news with her fans, “GUYS!!! I’m sooooo excited to be a part of the #ForeverCountryCovers series”!
We are so happy they did, because Lauren’s version of Brooks & Dunn’s “Believe” has us nostalgic and …well our eyes are leaking it’s so good!
From Taste of Country,
The video series is part of the CMA’s ongoing celebration of the 50th anniversary of the CMA Awards in 2016. More than 30 of the biggest stars from country music past and present recently joined together to record an epic track titled “Forever Country” to mark the occasion, blending John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” Dolly Parton‘s “I Will Always Love You” and Willie Nelson‘s “On the Road Again” in a once-in-a-lifetime all-star medley. The #ForeverCountryCovers series has also featured Marks Wills covering Kenny Rogers, Dustin Lynch covering Garth Brooks and Jon Pardi paying musical homage to Randy Travis.
Released in 2005 as the second single from Hillbilly Deluxe, “Believe” took Brooks & Dunn to No. 8 on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart in 2006, and went on to win CMA Awards for Single of the Year and Music Video of the Year. Alaina’s voice soars in her cover, emphasizing the gospel elements of the song with minimal accompaniment from acoustic guitar and simple percussion.
