Country singer-songwriter Gethen Jenkins recently released a cover of Ben Harper’s “Another Lonely Day”. The cover concluded a video series of covers including Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man”. Jenkins concluded with “Anther Lonely Day” saying,

“I chose to cover this song because it spoke to my heart when I was going through some tough times last Fall,” states Gethen about the cover. “It’s one of my favorite songs and a pleasure to cover such an accomplished musician like Ben Harper. Thanks to Gibson Guitar for letting me perform it in their space!”

Gethen is gearing up to release his debut album later this year, which was produced by four-time Grammy Award winner Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, Jack White, Old 97’s and Buddy Guy) for Five Music Company/RED MUSIC. He recently released his music video for his single “Bottle In My Hand” off of his forthcoming full-length. Watch the music video HERE. Gethen is gearing up to release his next track, “Restless Ways” on February 15th.

Gethen recently wrapped a few headline tour dates in Texas and will continue to tour throughout most of 2019. For more information on upcoming tour dates and to purchase tickets to his shows, fans can visit his website HERE.
