Matt Zarley - Tonight I Wanna Cry (Keith Urban Cover)



It always makes me happy when a cover surpasses the original. I've never been a Keith Urban fan but when I saw that Matt covered this song, I was cautiously optimistic. Needless to say, I'm blown away by this version of the song. He's amped up the emotion and he's made the track his own. He didn't deviate too far from the original but just the fact that his vocal styling is so different than Keith's the track didn't need much at all to sound so different than the original country track. There's pain, there's hurt. There's soul. There's a new life that's been breathed into the track that makes it just a gorgeous piece of work.
