Ben Kilgore on 'The VDub Sessions'

Soulful Tulsa singer gets in the van.

This might just be my favorite-ever installment of “The VDub Sessions.”

For one thing, you’ve got Tulsa’s strongest male singer, and for another, you’ve got him covering one of the GOATs (greatest of all-time). What more do you need? Here’s Ben Kilgore singing Otis Redding’s immortal “These Arms of Mine”:



Y’know, this kinda begs the question: Do you prefer Mr. Kilgore’s earnest-to-goodness Redding cover to Kanye West and Jay-Z’s recent tribute-sample track, “Otis”? I certainly do. But you decide for yourself.

Tower trouble

Security guards? They probably should've just called mom.


CFN

Gazette staff
What do you do when you’re just slightly in trouble? We’re talking “ate the roommate’s leftovers without asking,” not like “ran over Grandma’s prized poodle.” Sheepishly hide in your room?
