Netflix’s latest streaming hit has a soundtrack full of songs with one resounding theme: the road. The Ice Road is a thriller starring Liam Neeson. He plays an ice road trucker tasked with a dangerous rescue mission. Carly Pearce covers one of the most recognizable songs from Kathy Mattea.
The Ice Road’s Heavy-Hitting Soundtrack
Any action-adventure starring Liam Neeson is bound to be a hit. His Netflix Original The Ice Road is already #2 in the U.S. The movie is not yet available in other countries. The #1 streaming show is NBC’s Manifest. The network just canceled the show, but fans are flocking to Netflix to watch the first two seasons. Many ‘Manifesters’ are calling for the streaming giant to save Manifest.
Rockers Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue and Rob Zombie also contribute to the soundtrack with a cover of Hank Snow’s “I’ve Been Everywhere.”
Carly Pearce takes on Kathy Mattea’s mega-hit 18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses.
Kathy Mattea Reacts to Carly Pearce Covering 18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses
18 Wheels and a Dozen Roses tells the story of a long-haul trucker finally coming off the road for the last time. It reached #1 on the country charts in 1988.
What did Kathy Mattea think of the cover? She absolutely loved it, even if she spelled Pearce’s name wrong. Mattea took to her Facebook page to let her fans know about the cover. She wrote that it’s “crazy” to have a song from so early in her career covered by another “young country music star.”
Kathy Mattea also found it “kind of amazing” to hear another interpretation of the song. Her fans responded approvingly in the comments. However, many of them agree that Kathy Mattea’s original version is the better of the two. Give Carly Pearce’s cover a listen and share your thoughts in the comments down below.

From covering award-winning singer Kathy Mattea to having an icon invite you to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Two huge events in Carly Pearce’s year.
Dolly Parton recently surprised Carly Pearce during an interview. Or least, what she thought was an interview. It was really just a set-up for Dolly Parton to invite Carly Pearce to join the Grand Ole Opry.
