I don't know who this kid is, but someone in Nashville needs to sign him to a record deal immediately.
Upon further investigation, his name is Alfie Sheard. He's a busker/street musician in Doncaster, which is a pretty good sized town in England.
For the record, this is one of the 15 or 20 best songs ever written in my opinion - right up there with "Hallelujah" and "American Pie".
Fast Car, released in 1988, is a story of a working poor woman doing everything she can to make ends meet and escape the chains of poverty. It won a Grammy and even Rolling Stone considers it one of the best 200 songs ever.
Somebody sign this kid up immediately. CRUSHED this cover.
