Nothing Compares 2 U
I am a very big Prince fan and like so many people, I was devastated to hear of his passing this year. I really felt the need to cover a Prince song to honor him and I’ve always loved Prince’s version of “Nothing Compares 2 U” (better than Sinead O’Connor’s … oops). I was really excited about singing this song and thought it would be fun to put a blues/country spin on it.
It also helps that this song mirrors a lot of where I am in my personal life currently (also, oops!), so I think that really helped me connect to the song. When we first practiced it, my guitar player, J Mack’s wife, was like “DANG CC, YOU’RE FEELING THIS!” This is definitely one of my favorite songs to sing so I hope y’all enjoy it!
