Country Goes "Closer"

 

Since The Chainsmokers and Halsey released their smash hit "Closer" last summer, everyone has gotten the tune stuck in their head at one point or another! Country music in particular seems to have taken a liking to the song as it's one of the most popular non-country covers to perform out there right now. 

Dan + Shay were among the first to bring the country twang to the back seat of your rover when they released their rendition just 6 days after the single was dropped.

 

Country megastars Luke Bryan and Lady Antebellum have also "pulled the sheets right off the corner of that mattress that you stole" both in concert and in-studio with the Bobby Bones show. 

 
 

While the song has an EDM (electronic dance music) vibe to it, Kelsea Ballerini proved that it sounds just as good when slowed down to a ballad tempo.

 

And Cole Swindell had everyone on their feet when he sang the song as part of his set opening up for Dierks Bentley's WTH Tour.

 

And we can't forget the rising artists of the country music scene! 

Kane Brown and Dylan Scott delivered two very different versions of the song. Kane took the acoustic route singing the smash hit in a candid video while Dylan went the extra mile and produced an entire music video for it. Regardless, we really love both takes on the #1!
