Hear Chris Hillman’s New Tom Petty Cover Produced By Tom Petty

Country-rock pioneer Chris Hillman, a founding member of both the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers, is putting out his first album in over a decade next month. Appropriately entitled Bidin’ My Time, the LP was produced by Tom Petty, and Hillman decided to show his appreciation by including a cover of Petty’s own “Wildflowers” on the tracklist. His version is warm, lived-in, and lovely, starting out with just guitar and Hillman’s tender vocals before gradually building up into a lush front-porch symphony. Hear it below.
