Garth Brooks, whaddya think? Scotty McCreery does a live cover of “The Dance”

Listen to this stark cover of Garth Brooks’ song ‘The Dance’ by Scotty McCreery. Stay awhile to hear him chat it up.

Being a country music legend involves those moments that someone out there covers your song and the cover is just as solid as the original.

Scotty McCreery takes to the minimal end of production that comes with performing on a live show. The song in question is ‘The Dance’ by Garth Brooks.

With little more than a friend playing guitar and the microphone, Scotty does an excellent job with Brooks’ song. If you listen to the original afterward, McCreery’s bare cover shines.

One of the highlights of these on-show performances is the chance to see what makes the artist tick and we see the human being behind the product.

McCreery goes from being a musician to a dog owner to a charity supporter to a contestant on Family Feud, and so forth. Moments like this one humanize people that are usually treated like merchandise.
