The Story’s Tenth Anniversary is Celebrated with a Star-Studded Cover Album That You Just Have to Hear
Ten years ago, folk music artist Brandi Carlile released her breakthrough album, The Story.
Although it was her second album, this was the record that launched Brandi’s career and made her a household name.
To mark the tenth anniversary of The Story’s release, Brandi has enlisted the help of some famous friends for her album, Cover Stories, featuring covers of her songs as performed by artists such as Adele and Pearl Jam.
Our favorite cover on the album is this rendition of “The Story,” performed by Dolly Parton!
Dolly’s distinctive voice -- which can change from feather-soft to strong and powerful within seconds -- lends an extra layer of soulful emotion to these haunting lyrics.
But this album is more than just a collection of wonderful songs; the proceeds from its sale are donated to the non-profit group, War Child, an organization that helps kids from war zones get a fresh start in life.
What a beautiful way to celebrate Brandi’s success!
