Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Iced Earth – Highwayman

This week I am featuring a covers request from Shawn Rock. Iced Earth covered the tune Highwayman off their latest release Plagues Of Babylon. The track was originally released by singer Jimmy Webb but was also covered by Glen Campbell and then most famously by the supergroup The Highwaymen, which included Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, and Johnny Cash. One of the more interesting aspects of the song is that on the Iced Earth and The Highwaymen version’s are that there are four different lead singers for the four distinct narratives in the song. On the Iced Earth track the singers are the two from Iced Earth, Stu Block and Jon Schaffer as well as Volbeat’s lead singer Michael Poulsen and Symphony X’s lead singer Russell Allen. I’ve included The Highwaymen’s version here below as well just so that you can hear the contrast in the two different approaches. Let’s get to it, krank it up and enjoy!

Starset just dropped a new tune off their upcoming album Vessels. You can check out the song, Ricochet, and the 360 degree video that the band made for it. I was going to remind you that tickets were almost sold out for the Starset show at the Marquis Theater on the 23rd but it looks like I am too late because the show is already sold out!
