'You've Got A Friend' Southern Raised Bluegrass

'You've Got A Friend' Southern Raised Bluegrass

Enjoy this unique rendition of ‘You’ve Got A Friend’ from the talented siblings of Southern Raised Bluegrass.


This Carole King classic became a smash hit after it’s release in 1971. The song spurned multiple covers from notable artists including James Taylor, Michael Jackson and Dusty Springfield.

“You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running, to see you again

Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend”

Siblings Lindsay, Sarah, Emily and Matt make up the Southern Raised Bluegrass band. The group was raised in the Ozark Mountains and they have blended their traditional music upbringing with multiple genres and their deep-rooted faith.

They describe themselves as creating a ‘Southern Raised trademark sound where classical meets bluegrass and city streets meets country roads. SR has morphed a progressive sound that spans Christian Country/ Bluegrass, Celtic and Classical.’

Today, they’re taking on the beloved classic ‘You’ve Got A Friend’ and it’s the perfect compliment to their unique vocals and sound.

“Ain't it good to know you've got a friend?
Ain't it good to know, ain't it good to know, ain't it good to know
You've got a friend?”

When I hear these words, I’m instantly transported back in time. It’s so refreshing to watch the younger generation pay tribute to the timeless songs of the past.

This was just the dose of nostalgia that my heart needed to hear today. What about you?
