As you may know, Metallica is celebrating the 30th anniversary of their “Black” album in September with a bunch of re-releases and artists covering some of the biggest hits from the album. They chose Country star Jon Pardi (Who I just love!) to cover “Wherever I May Roam”. At first, I thought, “Um, really? How is THAT going to work?”
You know what? It does.
Jon Pardi can rock, but still keep his Country twang that’s he’s known for. I know some die-hard rockers will hate it because they are allergic to Country, but if you keep an open mind, I think one can appreciate the effort.
I can’t wait for the “Black Album” anniversary, and to hear more renditions of Metallica’s best!
