American Idol 2012 winner Phillip Phillip has still be on his media tour, while on the road for the Idols Live tour and earlier this week, he stopped by a radio station in Nashville and covered “Wicked Game” by Chris Isaac.
It’s a fantastic acoustic version of the song and interesting because during the past season I suggested in a post that Phillip should perform “Wicked Game” during one of the theme episode. And from the sound of the video posted below, he probably would have had some success with it on the show.
It’s actually more upbeat than Isaak’s version and a lot less steamy, but there’s a lot of soul and a lot of Phillip Phillips in the song. The best part is when he brings it back down at the midpoint after an heavy guitar solo. Oh, here, check it out for yourself:
