Even though this is merely a cover, it was nevertheless able to touch many listeners’ hearts despite the fact that many Blake Shelton hit songs were produced for fans to enjoy. Even though Blake Shelton’s version is more upbeat and contemporary than the original due to the addition of a background acapella and the mellow beat provided by the bass guitars and drums, he was still able to get the song’s point across and feels that the original version was able to make listeners feel.

Blake Shelton has a way of delivering each note with such diction and emotion that it creates a whole new experience for the audience. As a result, this is regarded as one of the most iconic cover’s of the song.
