We (I, especially) have received numerous alerts lately from loyal fans, followers, and friends that duo Maddie & Tae has been covering Jo Dee Messina on the Start Here Tour. And while we previously reported about the cover, it wasn’t until now that we were provided with a full video of the performance.
Putting their harmonies on the 1996 Jo Dee hit debut, “Heads Carolina, Tails California,” the CMA Award-winning pair has been reminding its young fans about the roots of today’s eclectic country music genre. The undertaking of Jo Dee’s powerful vocals is a tall order for anybody, but Maddie & Tae wisely remain in their respective ranges, scaling back on the enormity of the original tune and using beautiful blends to carry the Start Here show home.
Watch Maddie & Tae perform Jo Dee Messina’s “Heads Carolina, Tails California” below and let us know what you think!
