On her official site, Vanessa shared the following thoughts about recording the classic Stevie Nicks-penned track:

“This song is epic. I feel like a lot of people don’t attempt to cover Fleetwood Mac because the personality of these songs are so distinct. I admit, I was terrified to do this, but I sang Dreams on stage at a BMI event honoring Stevie Nicks. I was 7 weeks pregnant at the time. No one knew. I got to sing the song with Stevie’s band, which was pretty great. Waddy Wachtel, the musical director gave me “the nod” during rehearsal. Which, I think meant he approved. Or, at least, I’m praying that’s what it meant.

I knew the only way I could honor this song was to get an amazing band. My friend Patrick Hallahan (My Morning Jacket) is one of my favorite drummers. He lives in Louisville and despite being super busy, woke up early, drove to Nashville, played the song and drove home. All before noon. The gorgeous harmonies were done by the Watson Twins, Nashville locals, who are also from Louisville. And the guitars were all done by Adam Landry, who also produced the track. We sent the song to Stevie for approval, and we got the seal. Dream team!”

Here’s the full audio of Vanessa’s cover of “Dreams.”

On April 11, Vanessa shared a teaser video of her rendition on YouTube.
