Description

As one of country’s music’s crossover stars, Ashley Monroe is adept at mixing the classic and the contemporary, as evinced by her pair of Grammy nominations for her third album, The Blade. For this installment of Holiday Undercover she offered a take on “River” from Joni Mitchell’s iconic 1971 album, Blue. The song had previously been tackled by Travis’ Fran Healy back in 2010, but here Monroe adds her own country flair.

The A.V. Club’s A.V. Undercover series has been commissioning Christmas covers throughout this holiday season, and the latest is also the greatest. Ashley Monroe, one of today’s finest country singers, took on Joni Mitchell’s timeless Blue ballad “River,” a tune that flips the typically cheery “Jingle Bells” melody into something deeply, profoundly sad. It’s a genius pairing of singer and song.
