  • love 3:53 when banjo guy is yellin along

  • If you ever get a chance to see them LIVE, do it! I’ve seen them 3 or 4 times and it’s worth EVERY last dime.

  • I’ve been hearing this on the radio. Much better than the original, I’d say.

  • Niiiiiice!

  • Dope find. I wish I was back in my home state, the band is playing the Oberlin Folkfest tomorrow May 8th. Hometown Jam!

    I heard this on the radio too its pretty awesome.

  • Always great to see brown/black/chocolate people in art-illustrations. It actually makes me feel very good to see this and hear this. I am sick of the little pretty white chicks wearing their little pretty flower dresses singing about the prairies and the mountains when you know all they do is hibernate at their local American Apparel.

    Yeap. I dig it. A lot.

  • I was just watching this on tuesday! What are the chances?!

  • MarlenePB

    well this totally blew me away :) pretty sweet talent. kinda once in a lifetime thing.

  • Yeah, got their cd a few months ago and I loved it! What drew me to their cd was actually the cover. I work at a radio station and we have a drop box FULL of cds from labels and I noticed this one because it stood out. great listen :)

  • they sound awesome, but I’m not down with these lyrics… i might check out another song or two.

    • It’s a cover of a Blu Cantrell song. Listen to their originals if you want a more pure taste.
