Niko Moon has released an Amazon Original cover of “It’s a Great Day to be Alive,” available to stream and purchase only on Amazon Music. Moon is the latest in a long line of country musicians who have recorded the classic track, which was originally written by country singer/songwriter Darrell Scott and performed by Jon Randall before it was made famous by Travis Tritt.

“I grew up 15 minutes from Travis Tritt. Driving down the same roads as him, blasting ‘It’s a Great Day to be Alive’ as loud as my little S10 speakers could handle,” says Moon. “This is a chance for me to honor one of my favorite country artists while doing my best to put my own twist on one of the greatest country songs of all time!”
The Amazon Original cover follows Moon’s critically-acclaimed debut “Good Time” EP. Along with his successful solo career, which has taken him on the road opening for acts like Ryan Hurd and Eli Young Band, Niko has co-written five No. 1 hits for Zac Brown Band, including the Chris Cornell-assisted “Heavy Is The Head,” which topped multiple rock charts. Moon is currently self-producing his debut full-length project alongside longtime collaborator and friend Joshua Murty.
