Courtney Marie Andrews, Liz Cooper & Molly Sarlé Cover Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘America’
Courtney Marie Andrews recruited Liz Cooper (Liz Cooper & the Stampede) and Molly Sarlé (Mountain Man) to record a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “America.” The track was originally released as part of the Good Music to Avert the Collapse of American Democracy Vol. 2 benefit album in support of the Voting Rights Lab.
“This song is a beautiful novella of a certain place in time that stirs our emotions,” Andrews said of the collaborative cover. “While we were all at a writer’s retreat, we decided to sing harmony on it, to bring us closer together and reminisce over that free feeling of travel and love.”
The cover’s release comes shortly after Andrews’ recent Grammy Award nomination for Best Americana Album for her 2020 record, Old Flowers. Listen to Courtney Marie Andrews, Liz Cooper and Molly Sarlé cover Simon & Garfunkel’s “America” below:
