Dwight Yoakam just released a cover of Who’ll Stop the Rain, available on iTunes. Interesting take on one of John’s classics! Funny cause my wife and I just caught Dwight a couple of weeks ago and on the drive home I was wondering out loud why Dwight hadn’t been one of the artists featured on Wrote A Song…. we talked about a PERFECT collaboration a Dwight/John project would be, and now this! Anybody want to hear John cover Guitars and Cadillacs next? Oh yeah!
Dwight has always maintained that John and CCR were one of his main influences, I hope there’s more to come, my they could cover some of Buck’s songs together and trade of on their own. Two of greatest voices and songwriters together, I can only dream!
