Country Cover Songs, there are so many to choose from. There are so many that are awesome. A lot of times we find ourselves asking, which version is better? The original? or the Country Cover Song? This week we’re asking you which version of “Heaven” is better. Is it Jason Aldean or is it Bryan Adams? Let’s dive in. By the way, if you missed last week’s Country Cover Song with Mark Chesnutt and Aerosmith, you can catch that one here.

The song “Heaven” was originally recorded by Bryan Adams in 1983 and was featured on the soundtrack to “A Night In Heaven”. A year later, the song appeared on Bryan’s album “Reckless”. In my opinion, it’s definitely one of Bryan Adams’ best songs. When you think of him, there are a handful of songs you think of, and “Heaven” is one of those songs.

Cut to June of 2009, “CMT Crossroads” aired an episode that featured Jason Aldean and Bryan Adams singing each other’s songs. This was the first time I’d heard Jason Aldean sing “Heaven”, and I really dug his version of it. If you want to check out Jason and Bryan on “CMT Crossroads” just click here.

Unlike last week with Mark Chesnutt and Aerosmith, where I knew which version I liked better, this week I can’t decide. Both versions of “Heaven” are really good. So I’ll say give them both a listen and decide for yourself.
