"If I could change the world..."

Eric Clapton "Change The World" ReImagining Grammy series

So, the Grammy organization is doing this new "ReImagine" web series on YouTube. It's where artists reinvent or cover versions of other songs, with hopes that it will connect the Grammy past with the present. Well, Chris Young is the first country artist to try it out and completely blew his rendition of Eric Clapton's "Change The World" out of the water. 

I've never really been a huge fan of the song, but the way Chris changes up the progression of the song just a bit, really made me hear it for the beautiful love song that it was intended to be. His voice reaches new heights as he goes into his falsetto in the chorus. It kind of makes you want to melt into a pile of mush, ladies! If you haven't watched this video, you should get on that, uh, RIGHT NOW!
If I remember correctly, he also has some sort of technical training with classical music, too, and that shows with some of the well thought out notes and chords. It will never stop driving me crazy over the fact that he never gets nominated! He has one of the best voices out there (definitely my favorite male vocalist) and is consistent with hits. Maybe A.M will finally get him the recognition he truly deserves! 

Like this video, watch the heck out of it and share it with your friends :)

That's all lovelies,
