Before he turned to dance music, Las Vegas’s Shamir tried to become a country star. A local producer nixed the idea though, and while it helped him turn to the sound that is so buzzy right now, it was a definite loss for country. He’s shown that before, with a great cover of Linda Ortega and Miranda Lambert, and now he does it again covering Kacey Musgraves‘ “Merry ‘Go Round.”
Shamir’s high, delicate voice brings a wallop of emotion to Musgraves’ breakout song. Listen below (the whole thing is great, but the cover starts at about 8:45).
