The Apple Music Sessions EP is out now!
“I have always been an Ozzy Osbourne fan and Mama, I’m Coming Home is one of my all-time favourite songs,” Underwood said. “I’ve always thought it felt a lot like a country song, and I’ve wanted to cover it for a long time. This was a really fun opportunity for me to be able to finally make that happen. I hope we’ve done Ozzy proud, and I hope he likes it.”
For the project, Underwood also recorded a new, stripped-down version of Ghost Story, as well as a new version of Blown Away – which were all filmed in Nashville.
She added, “Being in the studio with Apple Music was such an incredible experience, and I’m excited to share these unique, stripped-down versions of three songs I love with my fans. We had a lot of fun reimagining these big, visual songs and presenting them in a different way.”
Additionally, Tenille Townes also released an exclusive EP as part of the Apple Music Sessions program. Her project includes recordings of her songs Somebody’s Daughter and Same Road Home as well as a gritty, soulful cover of Etta James’ At Last.
“It was so cool capturing the spirit of how it feels to play my songs live with my band during the Apple Music Sessions performance,” Townes said. “The new space feels like it’s going to become an anchor for our music community in Nashville, and it was an honour to be a part of breaking it in.”

“I chose Same Road Home because I really love the message in the song of us all being more alike as humans than we often realise,” she continued. “Somebody’s Daughter is one of those songs that has grown with us as a band for the past couple of years, and it was really fun to showcase our live version of it. And At Last is a song that sets the bar to me as a writer and a singer. I’ve never recorded a version of it before, and I loved getting to include it in my Apple Music Sessions.”
