Here’s a Country Cover of Alice in Chains’ “Don’t Follow”


Country music star Cody Jinks, who has roots in metal, has joined up with Oklahoma-based outlaw country artist Casper McWade for a cover of the 1994 Alice in Chains track “Don’t Follow.” All proceeds from sales of the track will be donated to help military service members. You can listen to the cover, an acoustic rendition close to AIC’s original that features harmonica accompaniment from McWade, below.

McWade explains:

“Every dollar that we make from this is going to the Military Assistance Program. Our military men and women need us right now. This COVID-19 thing is a big scare especially for out Veterans. We’re doing everything we can to help them out. You like Cody Jinks? You like Alice in Chains? You like Casper McWade? Let’s hope so.”

Adds Jinks:

“It’s a beautiful song. It a beautifully tragic and painful song. Super cool thing that Casper’s done. Very selfless act that Casper’s done that is hopefully gonna generate some things to help the men and women that come back that need assistance, because God bless them, they’ve been in some bad situations. Happy to be a part of that.”

Thanks to longtime MetalSucks reader Derek N. for sending this one in!
