When You Say Nothing At All

We were talking the other day about song covers. During the conversation, I mentioned how some covers become more popular or are done better than the original version -- with the cover subsequently "owning" the song. (A good example is Jimi Hendrix's version of Bob Dylan's 'All Along the Watchtower'.)

Here, Alison Kraus does a cover of Keith Whitley's 'When You Say Nothing At All'. While Whitley's is still a very good version, I think it's safe to say that this is Alison Kraus' song now.
