“I’m a big believer in the New South, and the South that I know is an extremely giving, compassionate and beautiful place.”
From Garden & Gun’s First Listen: Brandi Carlile’s “Murder in the City”:
Accompanied by the tight harmonies of Tim and Phil Hanseroth—known as “The Twins”—Carlile played a mix of old and new songs, including a cover of the Avett Brothers’ “Murder in the City,” which became the unofficial anthem of the tour.
I love that she covered it, though I’m not crazy about the result. It’s definitely a song worthy of imitation and reinterpretation.
“We don’t want to be where all the action is, we just want to be where we’re from.”
