This week I'm spotlighting the bluegrass band called Iron Horse.  This band, formed in 2000, consists of Tony Robertson, Vance Henry, Anthony Richardson, Ricky Rogers and they primarily cover classic rock and metal into bluegrass.  I really like hearing popular songs covered in totally different genres, and Iron Horse is really fantastic in that regard.  Before I started listening to them, I never would have expected these kind of covers to work, but as it turns out Iron Horse makes it work!  Below I'm sharing two of my favorites:

"Enter Sandman" (2013) - To refresh your memory here's Metallica's version of the song.  Iron Horse's cover, in my opinion, is much more eerie and creepy!  This is the first song that I heard by them, and I think it's still my favorite.


"Crazy Train" with Orchestra Sul Ponticello. Conductor, Viljar Puu Weimann in Decatur, AL (May 16, 2015) -  Here's Ozzy's original.  Turns out that this song really suits the bluegrass genre - it makes me wonder why this type cover hasn't been done before!
