Default "Tennessee Whiskey" or is that "I'd Rather Go Blind"

I went to an outdoor bandstand concert yesterday by a local (eastern Massachusetts) cover band called the Boom Boom Band. They did a good rendition of "Say You Love Me." I missed hearing the piano on the song, but the female singer sang it very well. It gave me an odd feeling of happiness and sadness mixed; it's the first time I've heard a performance of any song of Christine's since her passing.

The band's next song was "Tennessee Whiskey," a song by country singer Chris Stapleton that I was unfamiliar with, but it is practically a note-for-note copy of "I'd Rather Go Blind." It seems like an eerie coincidence that the band's performance of a song by Christine was followed by something that sounded just like a song from Christine's early career. I wonder if they knew what they were doing and this was their attempt to give a tip of the cap to Christine's early career, disguised as a cover of a recent hit.

The Chris Stapleton version of “Tennessee Whiskey” took the lyrics from a song by the same name and set it to the music of “I’d Rather Go Blind.”

George Jones has a much different sounding version of it, years earlier.

And he gets songwriting credit for this? Hmmm.
