Under the Covers: The Lone Bellow - Angel From Montgomery (John Prine Cover)

Feels Like: Jason Isbell, Neil Young, Brandi Carlisle

"Angel From Montgomery" has been covered before (even showing up in movies), and in most cases, the covers have been pretty great. It's a song that lends itself well to different voices and musical accompaniment. The Lone Bellow have let loose their take and their performance combined with an overcast day and empty rooftop capture the spirit of the song perfectly.
