The first single from Johnson's tribute LP to Hank Cochran tackles the late country songwriter's most widely covered number. It's closer to the 1965 Eddy Arnold hit than Elvis' overcooked 1971 version, as Johnson's old-school romantic nihilism intertwines with Krauss' hummingbird-precise voice. Framed by circling steel guitar, the plea for love in dark days feels as timely as a Twitter feed.
