Earlier this week, Phillip Phillips, stopped by 107.5 The River in Nashville, to play a few songs. Here he is totally jamming out on a cover of “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaak, a song he performed during Hollywood Week.
Phillip has a way of taking the melody out of melodic when he covers songs, but I do like the propulsive acoustic guitars in this performance. Is this an idea of what we can expect from Phillip when he’s finally cut loose on his own?
The American Idol winner has been stopping by radio stations while on tour with American Idol Live. On his days off, he’s been writing for his debut album, set for release in Nov/Dec. Poor guy doesn’t have a minute to savor the success of his coronation single, “Home” which went platinum this week.
Watch Phillip perform “Wicked Games” below.
