Tanner Adell Kicks Off Apple Music Sessions

Yesterday Tanner Adell kicked off the first performance of Apple Music Sessions new series at Apple Downtown Nashville. To celebrate the success of Beyonce’s Cowboy Carter album, Apple Music invited six rising Black country artists to cover songs from legacy artists exclusively, with Adell being the first. Hosted by Fancy Hagood, the host of Trailblazers Radio, the 45 minute set included a cover of Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love” and “Buckle Bunny.” (listen to “Buckle Bunny above)

Adell appears on the track “Blackbird”, a cover of The Beatles’ song of the same name, and provides background vocals on Beyoncé’s “Ameriican Requiem”.
