Five Country Songs That You Didn’t Know Were Covers [VIDEOS]

Occasionally a song will come along, that you will hear and say, “I’ve heard this somewhere before.” It’s not one of those obvious cover songs, but one that was cut by somebody on an album, or maybe was put out as a single and tanked. Either way, there’s a chance you may have never heard these versions of some of your favorite songs.

You might have known that Don Williams wrote and recorded “I Wouldn’t Be A Man” before Josh Turner, but did you know Billy Dean also released it as a single before Josh?

And finally, another one that might shock you is the haunting version of “The Thunder Rolls” that preceded Garth Brooks and his big hit. This one is from Tanya Tucker including the controversial third verse Garth performs in concert. Excuse the creepy picture. This was the only youtube version I could find.
