Watch Cam’s ‘Zombie’ Cover for Dolores O’Riordan
At a special show in Nashville to honor the artists who died in 2017, Cam offered up a moving rendition of the Cranberries hit song "Zombie." The group's lead singer, Dolores O'Riordan, died on Jan. 15.
Readers can press play above to watch Cam's performance of "Zombie," part of a show at Nashville's Basement East. It's a stylistic turn for the country star, of course, especially from her upbeat newest single, "Diane," but showcases her diversity as a performer. Written by O'Riordan, "Zombie" was released in 1994 and became a No. 1 hit in the U.S, France, Australia and elsewhere.
O'Riordan died unexpectedly in London, England, on the morning of Jan. 15; she was 46. Her death is not suspicious, according to authorities. O'Riordan was London for a recording session with Bad Wolves, a metal band. She has been buried at Caherally Cemetery in Ireland, her home country; her father is also buried there.
The Basement East show, Sing Me Back Home: A Celebration of Artists Lost in 2017, gathered musicians to commemorate some of the legends who have died recently. In addition to Cam, the lineup included Langhorne Slim, Hayes Carll, Cody Jinks and more paying tribute to Gregg Allman, Glen Campbell, Chris Cornell, Tom Petty, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino and others by playing some of their greatest hits for the audience. The evening helped raise money and awareness for the Polaris Project, an organization that was founded to combat human trafficking.
