Cover vs Original: ‘The Story’


LeAnn Rimes cover version of Brandi Carlile’s ‘The Story’.

By Steve McSteveface

LeAnn Rimes has covered a song that was originally performed by Brandi Carlile and she does a pretty awesome job…

I still prefer the original as I love Brandi Carlile’s voice especially when you listen live versions – I swear she is about to burst a blood vessel near the end. It’s epic!

I was gutted when her performance in Aberdeen was cancelled because of the 2010 Ash Cloud. Maybe one day she will come back!

What do you think? Do you prefer the original or the cover version?
