Young Summer - Old Chunk of Coal

After having released her six-track EP, You Would Have Loved It Here back in late October, Washington, DC-based singer/songwriter Bobbie Allen, aka Young Summer now returns today with her absolutely breathtaking and heartfelt rendition of ​​​​​​​the country classic "Old Chunk of Coal", a song originally written and recorded by Billy Joe Shaver and later covered by both John Anderson and Johnny Cash

"This song has always meant so much to me because it captures a moment in time in which the realization is made that you are full of potential and good," Young Summer says about recording the track. "The message of the song is so universal, the desire to be better than you are and make a difference in the world. I’ve been waiting to release it and it being the holidays, with the current political climate it feels more relevant than ever to release a hopeful song about knowing you can be, and having the desire to be, better than you ever imagined. We are all full of potential to change, ourselves and the world, and we must maintain our hope and the knowledge that we can be better than we are."
