This was great.  I'll always remember when this was performed because of the lack of an audience.

I know. I listen to Townes all often ... he lives on and will forever. I was just really taken in by what a great job Andrew and Tift did, sweet song ... sweet work. I'm sure Townes is smilin that Townes smile and he's likely penning a few more as he does in one form or another. Peace.

Good point Victoria.  I always assume that everyone knows it's a Townes Van Zandt cover!  I wonder if David Letterman knows?

no one mentioned Townes the author.

... shut your eyes and you'll hear the "shades of Emmy Lou" as Tift gently weaves her harmonies as a sweetly rendered answer to Mr Bird's strong traditional rendering. The fiddle playing is spot on traditional ... albeit in tune, the chops are all there but not overstated,  and the back-beat rhythm of Tift's accoustic guitar an equally strong partner in the rendition.  Thanks for sharing ... sweet stuf .. thank I'll just play it agane ... a time or two.
