Years before she hit it big in Nashville, Cam recorded this heartbreaking rendition of Bonnie Raitt’s hit song “I Can’t Make You Love Me.”
In 2011, hopeful musician Cameron Ochs was living in Portland and spent a bulk of her time writing and recording tracks with her friends in a basement studio nicknamed “The Fort.” In the video above, you’ll see the breakout country star sans her trademark curly hairstyle and bright yellow attire as she plays along with her friend and fellow musician Michael Sherry.
Although Cam may look like your typical girl-next-door in the video, her vocal talent is far from ordinary. The countrified acoustic rendition of Raitt’s signature 1991 hit showcases her powerful voice which has helped rapidly catapult her to the top of the charts this year.
The massive success of her single “Burning House” hasn’t stopped this 31-year-old from supplying even more amazing covers. During a recent stop to the Bobby Bones Show, she performed an impromptu version of Adele’s hit “Hello” which quickly went viral. During her last visit to the Grand Ole Opry, she also sang a sentimental rendition of Patsy Cline’s posthumous hit “Sweet Dreams.”
