Lyle Lovett Covers Buddy Holly — Exclusive Video Premiere

Universal Music

One of the most influential recording artists of all time is being honored, as today (Sept. 7) marks what would have been his 75th birthday. A compilation album called ‘Listen to Me: Buddy Holly‘ hit stores this week, featuring a who’s-who list of musicians performing their own versions of classic songs originally recorded by the late Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.

Among those lending their voices to the new project are the legendary Stevie Nicks, Jackson Browne, Brian Wilson, Ringo Starr and Lyle Lovett, who recorded the Holly classic ‘Well All Right.’ “What people should know about Buddy Holly — it’s all right there in his songs,” Lyle tells The Boot. “The legacy he’s left is these great songs! And when you listen to just how complete they are and how they say everything they need to say in the course of two or three minutes, well, it tells you what a song should be.”

Watch the exclusive premiere of Lyle’s ‘Well All Right’ video, featuring footage from his recording session, below.
