Peep This: Sam Moss Covers Townes Van Zandt’s “Rex’s Blues”

Just over a week ago our old friend Sam Moss swung by the ole RLR homestead, skated up the driveway and spent some time with us catching up, talking about music and filming for the Old Spruce Sessions.

After we wrapped up our session at a local artist and friend’s studio (that session coming in the next few weeks) we headed back to the house and we stowed away to the place where most of these articles (by me) are written and decided to shoot another quick video.

Sam thought “well maybe a cover” and then launched into an absolutely gorgeous and devastatingly haunting version of the late, great Townes Van Zandt’s “Rex’s Blues”. I’ve heard this song covered god knows how many times, but Moss’s take was something completely different. 

Check it out below and be sure to pre-order Sam’s new record, “Neon”, being released on March 2. You can pre-order it here.
