Norah jones cover of "Loretta" with Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings

Wow, how have I missed this all these years? Just found out in the latest issue of Texas Music Magazine that Norah Jones put this Townes van Zandt cover on her most recent album. With Townes' immense song catalog, I expect we have plenty more years of new artists reinterpreting his work. He remains obscure to the mainstream on a certain level as the guy who wrote "Pancho and Lefty," but he will no doubt be remembered and respected for his songwriting long after the popular artists of today are forgotten.
