Singer-songwriter Chase Bryant put a new spin on Little Big Town’s hit “Better Man” on Wednesday (Feb. 15), transforming it from a condemning accusation into a regretful, pensive perspective.
In his cover of the track written by Taylor Swift, Bryant changed “you” to “I” in the lyrics, giving the listener another side of a break-up, highlighted by loneliness, loss and a pang of guilt.
The vocals are backed by harmonies from country trio Runaway June, providing a sweet, yet heart wrenching background to an already emotional melody.
