Kalie Shorr, Lindsay Ell and Kelleigh Bannen’s reinterpretation of Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” is necessary right now. The trio performed the song as part of CMT’s Next Women of Country event in Nashville on Nov. 7, and you get to enjoy the finished product forever.
Their stripped-down version of the song starts with Shorr on acoustic guitar and a slowed rhythmic singing style that puts the focus on Swift’s powerful lyrics. In comes Bannen on vocals and Ell on guitar. It’s magic.
“Lindsay Ell and Kelleigh Bannen are two of my favorite artists and they both bring something amazingly unique to the table,” Shorr says. “Lindsay is one of the best guitarists in country music and Kelleigh’s lower range is so unmistakably her. I’ve always loved the music they put out and bonding over the arrangement and performance of this was so fun!”
Clips of the women performing at CMT Women of Country event is interspersed with footage of them backstage getting ready. This performance kicked off the show. Afterward, nine new members were inducted into CMT Women of Country 2017 class, including Shorr.
