Watch Jacob Davis Cover Tim McGraw’s ‘Where the Green Grass Grows’
“Where the Green Grass Grows” was a hit for McGraw in 1998; it comes off of his album Everywhere. Davis' acoustic cover does the song justice, infusing plenty of energy and Louisiana-bred passion. For close to three minutes, Davis and a couple of backup players groove underneath a set of string-up lights; his smile makes it clear that he is enjoying every moment.
