REVIEW: Sarah Darling’s ‘Cowboy Take Me Away’ Cover

This Friday, US country sensation and honoury Brit Sarah Darling shares the second track off her ‘Campfire Sessions’ covers project which sees her covering classic hits that helped shape her into the divine artist she is today – the series kicked off last year with the breathtaking release of The Wreckers’ ‘Leave The Pieces’.

The new release will see the Nashville based artist delivering her truly stunning rendition of the Dixie Chicks’ global smash ‘Cowboy Take Me Away’ and the result is nothing short of magical. With her angelic, soaring vocals stripped to their core by the simple melodic production perfectly crafted by Cheyenne Medders, Sarah Darling delivers a note-perfect, delicate version that totally makes it her own.

Slowing the tempo to allow the lyrics to really shine whilst keeping a firm grip on the song’s original charm, the Iowa native manages to toe-the-line perfectly between new and old as she gives fans a truly updated, acoustic cover that will have them hitting the repeat button for weeks to come.

There’s no denying that Sarah Darling is one of the most impressive vocalists across the whole country music genre and with this sweet, graceful rendition she puts her self firmly on the map as one of the genres leading voices -such is the purity and clarity of her graceful vocal throughout.

It is always a hard task for any performer to cover a classic and do it justice but Darling does it with ease as she stamps her uniqueness across the entirety of the record without ever taking away from the original. There’s something beautifully soothing about the way Sarah sings and this cover of ‘Cowboy Take Me Away’ is one of her very best vocal displays.

RATING: 5/5
