Little Big Town and Trombone Shorty head to the Bayou on “Jambalaya” cover

ABC/Paula LoboLittle Big Town join forces with Trombone Shorty for a lively rendition of Hank Williams‘ classic “Jambalaya (On the Bayou).” 

The two acts originally debuted the song during the United We Sing event hosted by Harry Connick, Jr. on CBS in June to honor front-line workers of the COVID-19 pandemic.  They’re now releasing an official version of the track that adds even more spice to Williams’ original. 

In the new version, Trombone Shorty’s mastery of the horn adds vibrancy to the foursome’s bright harmonies as they sing of jambalaya, crawfish pie and filé gumbo while having “big fun on the bayou.”

The exuberant song was released by Williams in 1952 and topped the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.  It’s since been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.   

Proceeds from the song will go toward the Trombone Shorty Foundation and The Roots of Music, two organizations that provide music education for youth in New Orleans.

Brett Eldredge proclaims it’s a “Good Day” on ‘Good Morning America’

Greg NoireBrett Eldredge delivered a message of positivity to viewers during his appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America today. 

Joining the New York City-based show for a virtual visit, Brett offered a stripped-down performance of the new track that is centered around the idea of changing one’s perspective for the better. 

“There’s a lot of negativity, a lot of tough things in life that you can focus on, and I noticed my mind getting into that pattern,” Brett explains of the inspiration behind the song, adding that he learned to alter his mind to think, “what if I choose to take my best foot forward and choose to have a good day?”

That’s precisely what he did, channeling this reformed mindset into a mellow acoustic performance, flanked by an acoustic guitarist and pianist as his sultry and smooth vocals drive home the lyrics: “If the world gonna keep on spinnin’/Let it keep spinnin’ on my way/I got a feelin’/It’s gonna be a good day.”

“Good Day” is featured on Brett’s album, Sunday Drive, which was released Friday.
