Dylan Cover #116 Caleb Lee Hutchinson "You Ain't Going Nowhere"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by the Caleb Lee Hutchinson of the Dylan tune "You Ain't Going Nowhere"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song.
A great tune from the amazing Basement Tapes and one of the most well known from those sessions the song has a down homespun country feel to it. Great lyrics from Dylan that span the globe, seeming worldly yet still remaining down home, familial and countryfied. A good tune that surprised us when we recently saw Dylan open his Brooklyn show with it.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
I have not heard about Caleb Lee Hutchinson but if this tune is any indication I certainly will be hearing more from him in the can check out more covers of his on his youtube channel here.
Thoughts on Cover:
Wow, stumbled upon this singer and color us impressed. Caleb seems young, but you wouldn't know it by his confident vocals and playing on this Dylan cover. He impresses with range but not showboat playing/singing, nailing the song on a few levels. This is easily one of our favorite "deeper" finds of unknown artists in this series. The interwebs is a beautiful place, keep up the great work Caleb. 
Grade: A
