It’s a stirring, stark performance.

Chris Young has covered the Eric Clapton hit “Change the World” for the Grammy’s cool “ReImagined” web series. That’s where modern artists do versions of classic Grammy award-winning hits.

Chris is the first country artist to participate in the fairly new series. Other “ReImagined” tracks include R&B singer Eric Benet doing Willie's Nelson’s ”Always on My Mind” and soul singer Lyfe Jennings doing Michael Jackson’s hit “Human Nature.”

Why did Chris pick “Change the World”? “It’s beautiful. It’s a beautiful song,” he said in an interview on “It really is one that just spoke to me.”

But Chris knows it’s a beloved song all around the world, so there was a little bit of fear there. His first thought: “Man, I hope I don’t mess this up.”
