New Single by Kris Bone - Loving You

If this reaches you in time... Happy Valentines Day! Here is a beautiful love song we decided to cover by Elvis Presley / Duane Eddy. Written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, the song is from the Elvis movie "Loving You" and was the B-side to his hit Teddy Bear. The great Duane Eddy did his version which our version is based on. We made two version. One with a sax and the other Alternate Version with a guitar solo. Share this song with a loved one and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Thanks!
