Darling, who considers The Beatles one of her greatest musical heroes, told Billboard in an interview, “I’ll be honest with you, any time you are messing with a song from one of the biggest bands in the world, it can be a little nerve-racking. ‘Blackbird’ is one of my favorite songs. I begged to do that one. And [while recording] there was a sense of ‘let’s not mess this up,’ because it’s such an amazing song.”
Darling was also in the news last week, receiving a nod from country music superstar Carrie Underwood in an interview with Glam, who said she’d like to see more females doing really well in country music.
“I’m so proud to be a female in country music surrounded by such talented female peers, and am honored Carrie gave me such a kind compliment,” said Darling. “It means a lot coming from her.”
