Maggie Rogers recently took part in the ongoing Spotify Singles series, where she covered Taylor Swift’s 2006 track “Tim McGraw,” and reworked her hit track “Light On.”
Rogers took Swift’s country track and slowed it down and stripped it back for an indie interpretation of the hit song. Rogers’ full, throaty vocals and simple instrumental makes a tender rendition of “Tim McGraw.” “This song is classic songwriting at its finest and has meant so much to me for the last 10 years,” Rogers explained in an Instagram post. Swift even thanked Rogers for the cover in an Instagram story and referred to the rendition as “heavenly.”
Listen to “Tim McGraw” and a stripped back version of “Light On” below.
