Watch April Kry’s Cry-Worthy Cover of Chris Stapleton’s “Fire Away”

As country up-and-comer April Kry gets ready to drop her debut album this fall, the Connecticut-born-Nashville-transplant is keeping fans engaged with her #KrySesh posts on YouTube.

In her latest session, April covers Chris Stapleton’s “Fire Away” with the help of The Dames. The tune, which was co-penned by Chris and Danny Green, appears on Chris’ 2015 debut solo album, Traveller.

“I first heard ‘Fire Away’ when I saw the music video for it,” says April. “It touched me so deeply that I started to cry. Chris Stapleton doesn’t ever just sing a song, he tells a story. That’s what he does so well. After that, I knew I wanted to cover that song, but I wanted to make it uniquely me, so I asked The Dames to come in and they gave it a soulful, gospel flair. I don’t think I’ve ever loved singing a cover more than this one.”
