Covers: She’s Got You

The original version of the country song “She’s Got You” was by Patsy Cline and was recorded in 1961.

The version recorded by Rhiannon Giddens was released in 2015.  The tempo is much slower than the original.  I think it’s more appropriate for the sad message of the song.    Her excellent recording was followed by live versions available on YouTube.
