I posted a thread on a different site about naming your favorite cover song. Seemed to get a big response. Mine would be devil in the bottle by hank jr.
Love his version of DIAB. Love that whole record. I know just enough...

Plays a song for you this week, sorry about your heavy loss, brother.

Hard to pick a favorite cover but here’s 5 in no particular ranking:

1. Losin’ You - Hank Jr
2. The Door Is Always Open - Jamey Johnson
3. Maybe I Should Have Been Listening - Gene Watson
4. Livin’ With The Shades Pulled Down - Hellbound Glory
5. Pills I Took - Hank 3
Two of my favs don't fit under outlaw country, but they are:

Pray Your Gods by Toad the Wet Sprocket, covered by Fates Warning, and

While My Guitar Gently Weeps, as covered by Santana, India Arie and Yo Yo Ma.

I LOVE Pills I Took by Hank III as well!
Oh, and how could I forget Walk of Life?!?! I LOVE the Shooter version of this song!

You’ve done more for me then you could ever know. When you played sailin’ down the Nile 3 years ago it lead me to becoming friends with Billy Don who just did a graveside concert for my daughter. When I asked him fo do it he replied “you just made my day”. He got down on one knee and played sailin’ down the Nile next to her head stone pure magic.
My 2 cents!

Thunderstorms & Neon Signs - Hank 3
Dont Be Cruel - Billy Swan
Cotton fields - Creedence Clearwater Revival
Long Black Veil - The Band
Midnight Rider - Gregg Allman as a solo artist (Not by the Allman Bros)
I would like to say my favorite covers are

Gregg allman these days
