Forever Young - Audra Mae and The Forest Rangers
Forever Young

"Forever Young" is a song by Bob Dylan, recorded in California in November 1973. Written as a lullaby for his eldest son Jesse, born in 1966, Dylan's song relates a father's hopes that his child will remain strong and happy. Not wishing to sound "too sentimental", Dylan included two versions of the song on the Planet Waves album, one a lullaby and the other more rock oriented.

----------------------------

Soulful vocalist Audra Mae makes country, blues, and rock-influenced music with an earthy, often acoustic vibe. In 2004, Mae relocated to Los Angeles and found work as a songwriter, signing a publishing agreement with Warner/Chappell. In 2009, she released her debut EP, Haunt. That same year, her cover of Bob Dylan's "Forever Young" appeared on the FX motorcycle gang drama Sons of Anarchy.
