If you were alive and a country fan in 1995, chances are you had John Michael Montgomery‘s infectious hit “Sold! (Grundy County Auction)” on repeat. 22 years later, the song is earning a whole new crop of fans, thanks to Keith Urban and Chris Janson.
The pair took the stage at Nashville’s beloved Grand Ole Opry last night (Oct. 10) to perform a special cover of the track. And let me tell you, it’s no easy song to sing, even in the shower. But these two manage to sail through it with ease, adding in plenty of smiles and rolling harmonica.
It was a natural fit for Janson, who spent years singing country hits in honky-tonks along Nashville’s Lower Broadway. He still adds in plenty of country covers to his own sets, and has previously put his own spin on Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” and Merle Haggard’s “My Favorite Memory” during past visits to the Grand Ole Opry stage.
