Have You Jamie Kent’s Britney Spears Cover?
Everyone loves a good nostalgic cover, even more so when it’s a familiar song from our growing-up years. What Nashville-based country singer Jamie Kent did however, was rework Britney Spears breakout tune into a raw, acoustic and irresistibly charming ditty. And he released it on Valentine’s Day. Watch it here.
Described by Rolling Stone as the “middle ground between Nashville's Music Row hitmakers and Americana's rule-breaking rebels”, Kent didn’t just stop with the Britney Spears cover. The song, in fact, is part of a three-song EP titled Will You Go Out With Me, that is described as “a small collection of Jamie's favorite 90's pop jams rearranged with a Country sound. A fun little throwback to Jamie's Valentine’s Day Dances growing up.” The EP also features raw acoustic reworkings of Boyz II Men’s ‘I’ll Make Love To You’ and NSYNC’s ‘Tearin’ Up My Heart’.

Kent’s debut album All American Mutt released last year and debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top Country Charts.
