Lani here with my DJ pick of the week from Grace Potter. Potter has been quiet for a while now, but the vocal powerhouse has returned with a cover of Etta Jame’s heartbreaking song “I’d Rather Go Blind” for the new Muscle Shoals…Small Town, Big Sound compilation.
Spotlighting the quietly influential and legendary sound of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, the new star-studded and definitive homage album—Muscle Shoals…Small Town, Big Sound—is a once-in-a-lifetime collection that unites eras of GRAMMY Award-winning, multiplatinum superstars on one album for the first time. Powerhouse performers such as Steven Tyler, Chris Stapleton, Alison Krauss and many others breathe new life into seminal classics by The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Etta James and more originally birthed in Muscle Shoals throughout the fifties, sixties and seventies.
Listen to Potter’s rendition of “I’d Rather Go Blind” and let us know what you think!
