Dylan Cover #408 Greensky Bluegrass "You Ain't Going Nowhere" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a live cover by Greensky Bluegrass performing "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" 

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we addressed this cover:
A great song, and one that sounds so simple. It always felt to me that these are the kind of songs Dylan has seeping out of his pores, with lines like "Tailgates and Substitutes" that anywhere else would sound foolish yet here works wonders. The musical backing from the original Band version is loose and matched fantastically with the lyrics. I am sure it wasn't as easy going as it sounds on the final version, but what a gem of a track.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We reviewed Greensky Bluegrass's newest album All For Money and it made our year end best of list, but we have yet to catch them live. We need to rectify that in 2020.
Thoughts on Cover:
A fun encore tune done in slow and solid (if not spectacular) fashion. The band was supported by Kyle Tuttle and Mimi Naja for this one.
