The Recording Academy, part of the Grammys, have launched something incredible. Their ReImagined Series, brings the rich legacy of Grammy history with todays artists. Old and new….all leaving a musical footprint on the world.
Chris Young, who received a Grammy nomination in 2011 for “Gettin’ You Home”, stepped up as the first country artist to be a part of this project. During a show last month Young told us that he was handed a large stack of paper listing all the previous winners and songs. He was completely overwhelmed and didn’t know what to pick. He finally decided to let fate choose, opened the page and the first song to stand out would win. Fate did not steer him wrong as there could be no song better fitting than “Change the World” by Eric Clapton.
The mellow production with just Chris, Kevin Collier, a couple of guitars and tricky lighting set the stage for this emotional performance. His voice is incredibly powerful while delivering a beautifully simple message. Chris showcases a vocal range we hadn’t seen previously in his music. Its simply mesmerizing.
