Jerry Douglas Band Shares Cover Of ‘Hey Joe’ From Upcoming Album
Multiple-Grammy winner Jerry Douglas will release the latest Jerry Douglas Band album on August 18. What If finds the band joined by a horn section and includes a cover of a song popularized by Jimi Hendrix. The Jerry Douglas Band’s version of “Hey Joe” recently premiered via Rolling Stone.
Billy Roberts originally wrote “Hey Joe” with the Jimi Hendrix Experience recording a cover of the tune in December 1966. Douglas’ version uses the horns to provide a more Motown-esque rendition. “If there’s guilt involved about advancing the music and trying to change it at all, I’m certainly guilty of that and bringing other influences from other genres of music into it,” Douglas told Rolling Stone in 2014.
