Maggie Antone Delivers Stellar Cover of Tyler Childers’ “Lady May”

Nothing beats an amazing cover of one of your favorite songs.

I don’t know if anyone else is like that, but when I decide a certain song is my favorite, I get a little territorial.

As in theory, I want everyone to know the song and create covers that have their own flair and style? Yes absolutely. I welcome any kind of creative expression.

But in practice it can be difficult to please me…it doesn’t sound like it used to.

Well, yeah, no shit… that’s the point. I’m just having a little trouble getting over my love for the original to appreciate the cover art.

However, sometimes certain covers will just bypass my hypocrisy and bring me down. That was the case when I first heard Maggie Antone perform Lady May.

Her cover originally blew up on TikTok, of course. The best and worst things come from TikTok these days.

Now Antone has released a full cover of the beloved Tyler Childers song on streaming platforms, as well as a video of their full cover on their YouTube channel.

I don’t know if the song is actually slowed down, but it feels like it. Antone seems to draw out every word, enjoying every phrase in a way that forces you to actually listen and take in the meaning of the lyrics.

You can’t help but pay attention to the words and the way her voice says them because she takes an already pretty sparse song and kind of takes it further back.

I’m as attracted to the guitar on Childers’ song as I am to his voice, but Antone’s cover is all about the vocals.

There’s just something incredibly special about her voice that makes her stand out on her own. I had the same feeling when I first heard Zach Bryan. Nothing but his voice was needed to prove he was an authentic artist, just like Maggie Antone.

You really need to check out this cover if you’re a Tyler Childers fan.
