Heath Sanders, a field operator for Southwestern Energy in central Arkansas, is well on his way to superstardom after his stunning cover of Chris Stapleton’s “Either Way” went viral over a month ago. Unlike most viral stars, Sanders’ story is unique in that it caught the attention of “The Most Influential Man In Country Music,” radio deejay Bobby Bones.

Upon hearing Sanders’ sing, Bobby invited him to Nashville to perform live in his studio for a panel of industry professionals. During Sanders’ appearance on the Bobby Bones Show, he sang a song that he wrote called “Bloodline.” The fan response was overwhelming, creating a huge demand for more music from Heath Sanders.

Sanders is currently in the process of recording “Bloodline” but has released several more impressive cover songs to keep us happy while we wait. His most recent is a beautiful rendition of Keith Whitley’s 1988 hit “Don’t Close Your Eyes.” Sanders’ Stapleton-esque voice give the familiar tune a soulful quality and makes it feel as though you’re hearing it for the first time.
