I have always loved songs that tell a story. This is probably because I grew up in the 1970's listening to a lot of country music. Townes Van Zandt's "Pancho and Lefty" has been covered by many many musicians over the years. I had a lot of fun listening to different versions of it and was struck by how beautiful Frank Turner's version is. His voice is really lovely with just a little bit of grit around the edges, sort of perfect for "Pancho and Lefty" I think.
Do you agree? Give it a listen and let me know xo
