Paul Bogart lends his genuine cowboy authenticity to his reimagined and rootsy cover of the late Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine.” Originally a bluesy and timeless classic, Bogart’s new interpretation of the song brings it squarely into the realm of traditional country music, offering a fresh perspective on an age old tale of heartbreak and longing. With swampy guitars, smooth vocals, and an eerily haunting fiddle part, the single gives listeners a rich and earthy presentation of a beloved song. Fans can listen to “Ain’t No Sunshine” here.
“I can remember the first time I heard this song when I was 10 years old. My mom was singing her little heart out in the family car with the windows down right along with Bill Withers on the oldies radio station. I’d have never dreamed I would eventually get to record it and release it as my own single. Today is a good day!” said Paul Bogart.
Paul is no stranger to pushing the parameters of country music and making it his own. He’s received widespread acclaim for his seamless effort to maintain commercial success all while bringing the fundamental roots that make traditional country music a time tested genre to the forefront of his music. A well-versed songwriter himself, his writing is a reflection of his musical heritage. In regards to Paul’s last single, Taste of Country said “Paul Bogart’s new song is a shot of unadulterated feel-good country music. The singer-songwriter captures the upbeat, sunny vibe of a new love in ‘When She Gets a Hold on You.'”
“Ain’t No Sunshine” was produced by Zach Farnum and is a 117 Music release.
About Paul Bogart Though his songs are fresh and he himself is young, Paul Bogart is an old soul with a knack for capturing time-honored traditions and summing up classic sentiments in catchy, commercially-viable songs. Exuding sincerity and a rare, down-to-earth charm, he is, simply put, the epitome of traditional country music. After nearly a decade of writing, playing and touring, Bogart has begun pulling in big numbers in every arena, literally. Whether it’s the main stage at the AQHA World Championships with thousands in attendance or the social media scene with over 3.5 million fans reached through all social video platforms, led by “The Cowboy Way” and “Cowboy Ride” with over 2.6 million views, Bogart’s songs have connected with America’s Heartland in a real, tangible way that modern country has perhaps missed. Taste of Country called his 2019 single “When the Cowboys Are Gone” “nothing but authentic.” Often compared to Chris LeDoux and George Strait, the modern-cowboy has written songs for Porter Wagoner, Wade Hayes, Roger Creager, Kevin Fowler and, most recently, one of only two outside cuts on the great songwriter Red Steagall’s new record Hats Off To The Cowboy.
