There has been quiet a few tribute albums released this year, Hank Williams, Nirvana, U2, and even two for Buddy Holly. The latest is the new one for ZZ Top, released today. What a terrific idea. And there are some awesome covers on there. I put a few live versions together to give you incentive.
First up Grace Potter, talk about hot!!!!
