Lonesome River Band recently hit the studio with Brooke Aldridge to record a new cover of a country classic, and they’re letting Taste of Country readers hear it first.
LRB and Aldridge teamed for a new version of “If I Needed You,” a Townes Van Zant song that Don Williams and Emmylou Harris took to No. 3 on Billboard‘s Hot Country Singles Chart in 1981.
The newly recorded version of the song appears on Come See About Me: A Benefit for the IBMA Trust Fund. That album features contributions from nine artists from the Mountain Home label, all of whom donated their time to help raise money for the IBMA Trust Fund. Administered by the International Bluegrass Music Association, the fund “was established in 1987 as a means to offer financial assistance to bluegrass music professionals in time of emergency need,” according to its official website.
