Tenille Townes has dropped a stirring cover of Keith Urban’s 2006 hit “Stupid Boy” for Amazon Originals.
The Canadian singer brings an intensity to her rework, transforming it from a tender ballad to a biting country rock tune. “She laid her heart and soul right in your hands / And you stole her every dream, and you crushed her plans / She never even knew she had a choice / And that’s what happens when the only voice she hears is telling her she can’t,” she sings.
“‘Stupid Boy’ has been one of my very favorite songs for a long time, I am such a huge Keith Urban fan,” Townes said to Amazon Music. “A female voice on that song makes it different to begin with, and it’s really exciting to get to try my own approach to the lyrics.”
Townes’ rendition of “Stupid Boy” comes just a week after she dropped her sentimental single, “I Kept the Roses.” Stream her cover below:
