Sam Hunt isn’t afraid to take on Deana Carter’s nostalgic “Strawberry Wine.” Nor should he be, with chops like his. He plays a stripped-down, acoustic version on The Bobby Bones Show. Sam Hunt don’t need no accompaniment!
His sultry, bedside voice gives the song a whole new perspective. Bonus points awarded to Hunt for covering what has traditionally be considered a female song. Come on, “Strawberry Wine” is just a great song. Period. No matter who’s singing it.
This is only surpassed by Hunt’s medley of hits from the women of the 80s and 90s. Included in the medley: Reba’s “Fancy”, Trisha Yearwood’s “She’s in Love with the Boy”, Mariah Carey’s “Always Be My Baby”, Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name”, Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and Whitney Houston’s “I Want to Dance with Somebody”.
Check out all the amazingness.
