With the arrival of another weekend comes the arrival of another beautiful acoustic cover from HGTV star Drew Scott. Already a rock star in the design world, Drew expanded his Property Brothers empire earlier this year when he launched a new magazine with twin brother Jonathan. Is it just us, or does he have ambitions to become a literal rock star, too?

Last week, we were awarded "Love Yourself," the kiss-off anthem Justin Bieber co-wrote with Ed Sheeran. This week, we were blessed with the Otis Redding classic "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay." Not only is this pure weekend vibes, it may also be Drew's best cover yet.

"I'm just come sittin' on the dock of the bay / Watchin' the tide roll away / I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay, wastin' time," Drew croons during the performance.

In his Instagram caption, Drew revealed that the iconic tun is one of his "all-time faves."

"Happy Friday, folks! I'd love to actually be sittin' on a dock this afternoon," the HGTV star wrote. "But until that can happen, I'm going to keep on singing this Otis Redding classic."

Drew has also recorded "Shallow," the haunting Academy Award–winning ballad performed by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born, with his guitar teacher. And to mark Father's Day, Drew followed up his impressive performance of "Lean on Me" with a duet with none other than his dad. The dapper gents played a cover of the Jimmy Buffet classic "Margaritaville."
