Cowboy and traditional country singer songwriter, Paul Bogart, is stretching his repertoire as he takes on an R&B classic by Bill Withers.
The country singer stays true to his roots with his reimagined forthcoming single, Ain’t No Sunshine, originally written and performed by the late soul singer and R&B icon.
In his rendition of this hit song, that soulfulness is kept alive as Bogart has taken a bluesy and timeless single and amped it with his traditional country flair.
Critics describe the sound as a powerfully emotional track with “swampy guitars, smooth vocals, and a rootsy fiddle part,” as the single creates a wholly unique presentation of a beloved classic.
This is the first single off his highly anticipated record coming this November.
